Best Chicken And Ribs
This mom and pop restaurant in South Salt Lake absolutely has the best chicken in town as far as we’re concerned. The chicken is never anything but juicy and packed with bright flavor. That rice too, I’ve been trying to perfect that for years myself…

If there’s a better spot for koobideh in Utah, I’ve not found it yet. Plump and juicy kabobs made form seasoned ground beef, then grilled to sizzling perfection. The rice here is first class too.
