Oh, Trib readers, when I asked you to recommend a good place to buy a burger this summer, you did not disappoint. Listed below are the places you love.
One thing's for sure a great burger is easy to come by in the Salt Lake Valley. Besides my beloved Hires Big H (425 S. 700 East), there's also Guzzi's (180 E. 800 South), Busy Bee (2115 S. State St.) and Lucky 13 (135 W. 1300 South) just west of Spring Mobile Ballpark where, as one reader so eloquently put it, "You can easily satisfy both your burger and baseball passions in one stop." The garlic burger at The Cotton Bottom Inn (2820 E. 6200 South) in Holladay is a consistent crowd pleaser. Readers also like The Salt City Burger Co. (9176 S. Village Shop Drive) in Sandy especially the Southwest burger and the sweet potato fries. And one reader says she's still thinking about the (albeit pricey) hamburger she ate in April at Pallet (237 S. 400 West).
Other recommendations include the Wayne burger at Scaddy's (5430 S. 900 East) and the bleu bacon burger with a side of kale (!!!) fries at Roots Café (3474 S. 2300 East). More places to get a fix? Yanni's (2761 S. Highland Drive) in Sugar House, West Valley Billiards (4669 W. 3500 South) in West Valley City, and Bombdiggity's (1481 W. 12600 South) in Riverton where you can buy beefalo burgers and homemade frozen custard. Outside the valley in Tooele there's Dairy Delight (46 W. 100 South), which still serves a 99-cent burger that one reader calls "wonderful."
