The menu at The Shooting Star Saloon is simple and to the point: burgers and beer; signs littered across the bar make it clear not to get sassy with substitutions either. What you see is what you get and if you suggest otherwise, you might get an earful.

So why come to the Shooting Star? Open non stop since 1879 this is Utah’s oldest bar with some suggesting it might even be the oldest bar West of the Mississippi full stop.

Popular with Utah locals for decade after decade this unique Utah original has several items any visitor to SLC should seek out immediately: most pressing of which is the signature crown burger. The crown burger takes an already juicy, smoky and flavorful burger and loads it up with more layers of pastrami than is sensible.

You’ll want to order that with a side of fries, and the all famous Utah fry sauce. Essentially a mix of mayo, ketchup and a few other secret additions the result is a condiment that causes constant local arguments, not to mention confused looks from out of states. P.s. don’t even suggest it’s merely thousand island dressing.
