The 15 Best Eats North of SLC

If you're looking for something a little different to eat, jump in the car and head north to these 15 awesome restaurants. 

1.  The Timbermine


At the mouth of Ogden Canyon, the Timbermine (1701 Park Blvd Ogden, UT 84401) is fashioned after an old mining lodge.  Try the halibut or a nice grilled steak and then take a walk down the Weber River walkway.  

2.  Maddox


Maddox (1900 S Hwy 89, Perry, UT 84302) gives you the best of traditional American feel good foods.  They start your meal by giving you the best roll you have ever had in your life and CORN BREAD.  Fried chicken, chicken fried steak, salmon, steak, and bison all cooked to order.

3.  The Mandarin


The Mandarin (348 E 900 N Bountiful, UT 84010) is the best Chinese food in the state.  Seriously it is, and its the closest to SLC that this list has to offer.

4.  Burger Bar


Get yourself a big ben and a shake. This neighborhood classic (5291 S 1900 W Roy, UT 84067) has been around a long time and you will discover why when you go there.  It was also featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.

5. Taggart's Grill


This one is a bit of a drive but whether you take the Ogden way or the Park City way the views are nothing short of beautiful.  I'm going to get straight to the point- the best carrot cake in the world is served at Taggart's Grill (1105 Taggart Ln Morgan, UT 84050).  All the other food is great as well.

6.  Roosters


Nestled in on Ogden's Historic 25th Street, Roosters (253 25th St Ogden, UT 84401) gives Squatters and Red Rock a run for its money as far as pub food goes.  Begin your meal with the "What a Crock" a spinach dip you wish you could bath in its so good.  Their ravioli is great and so is the jambalaya. 

7.  El Matador


This Ogden classic (2564 Ogden Ave Ogden, UT 84401) is a go to Mexican food place for most people in the North valley.  They have great dinner plates and large portions.  

8. Union Grill


Eating dinner or lunch in an old train station?  No, I am not joking you, this is a real thing. Cool atmosphere and great food.  Union Station2501 Wall Ave Ogden, UT 84401.

9.  Vito's


One of the best sandwich places in the state.  Vito's (100 S Main St Bountiful, UT 84010) is famous for its philly cheesesteak and meatball subs.  

10.  Prairie Schooner


Want to have dinner in your own covered wagon?  Well, come to Ogden and go to the Prairie Schooner (445 Park Blvd Ogden, UT 84401).  Throw in some fried mushrooms as a side to a great steak and you won't be disappointed.

11.  Slackwater Pub and Pizzeria

Slackwater Pub and Pizzeria (1895 Washington blvd Ogden, UT 84401) is near the riverwalk and the Junction.  Delicious pizza/pub food and a great atmosphere, can't ask for much more than that.

12.  The Greenery


Great scenery at the mouth of Ogden Canyon. Get yourself a Mormon Muffin at The Greenery (1851 Valley Dr, Ogden, UT 84401).  And by "a muffin" I really meant a dozen.

13.  Jeremiah's Restaurant


Best breakfast in Ogden is at Jeremiah's Restaurant (1307 W 12th St Ogden, UT 84404). Whatever you order you can't really go wrong, just add a Utah scone  to it.  

14.  Gabor Brothers Main Street Grill & Pizzeria


Small building so seating is limited and its a local favorite so there may be a wait, but it is worth it.  Gabor Brothers (197 N Main St Layton, UT 84041) has spectacular pizza, great calzones and fantastic pasta.

15.  Holy Smoke BBQ & Grill


Fried Okra, Fried Pickles, Hush Puppies, and try the sampler to find your favorite cut of meat.  Holy Smoke (855 Heritage Park Blvd, Layton, UT 84041) has some of the best BBQ in the state.
