Baxter’s American is the hot topic this week. Quickly following on the heels of Stacey Kratz’s review last week, both the Salt Lake Tribune and the City Weekly get in on the act. Heck even we were there on Tuesday night.
Whilst both reviewers find slight niggles, the overall reviews concur, Baxter’s American is a great addition to the Salt Lake City dining scene. Reader comments on both websites also chime in with generally positive feedback. The only worry I have is that Baxter’s American still seems to be on quiet side customer wise. This is based on our own experiences, aforementioned reviews and comments from both staff and other commentators on-line. Maybe the three mainstream reviews all falling in a 7 day period will help bolster clientèle.
Baxter’s American: 400 W South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84180
Sam Vicchrilli of In Utah This Week checks out West Valley City’s La 35. I recall the Tribune giving the thumbs up to La 35 last year. Sam also concurs, enjoying a sizeable meal at a great price. The place looks interesting for sure, I’m definitely adding it to my ‘to do’ list.
Over in the Deseret Morning News Stacey Kratz reviews The Downtown Philly. To quote Stacey: “The Downtown Philly makes cheesesteaks, and there’s not a lot of fooling around with anything else.”. The authentic east coast subs are rounded out with a small offering of imported items from Philadelphia.
The Downtown Philly: 10600 S. Redwood Road, Salt Lake City, UT
Following on from cheesesteaks Your Heart Out sings the praises of Moochie’s Meatballs and their great subs. Moochie’s was also one of the local joints visited by the Food Networks Guy Fieri, so should be appearing on TV in the coming weeks and months.
Moochie’s Meatballs: 232 E 800 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84111
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
