It would be remiss to leave out this Utah classic’s Sandy location. Top of your ordering list should be the eponymous Crown Burger; a smoky patty topped with layer on layer of rich pastrami. Plenty of Greek burger joints around town lay claim to starting the pastrami burger trend, but few do it as good as Crown. Also worthy of your time is the Greek fare such as gyro and souvlaki.
