We’ve made a point of finding the best restaurant in each county in Utah, especially for families. Though we are a long way from completing all 29 counties, we wanted to create a post that summarizes what we’ve done so far. We love finding locally owned restaurants, and we do have a soft spot for burger joints and diners.
When we are out adventuring, we have tried to find restaurants where kids will actually eat, as well as places with prices that are affordable. It can be pretty pricey to go out to eat with the whole family.
Just click on any link to see our favorite in each county. If you’ve got a suggestion or some feedback for us, let us know in the comment section. We are always on the look out for new restaurants to try. We have also included some suggestions for those counties that we haven’t visited yet!
Breakfast until early afternoon makes our kids happy! The ice cream is all homemade. It is creamy and yummy. Breakfast all day! We love that! Daggett (Brownings Corner Cafe)
We hope to visit here soon!
They have great Kids Meal prices here. You have to get the nachos! So good! It’s the home of the Chubby Cheese, but they also have quite a variety of food, including a yummy enchilada. Garfield (east): Nemo’s Seriously amazing shakes at Nemo’s! We have tried a lot of different things at the Moab diner and we have never been disappointed. We were impressed with the prices at this restaurant! The trains run through the whole restaurant so you can enjoy choo-choo while you eat. Even if you don’t eat dinner, you have to stop for the pie!! It is amazing! We will drive two hours for their fries. Delicious! And the hot fudge shake is a must! This restaurant has it’s own freeway exit. Not only is the food good, but the grounds are very pretty! The Hoover Nachos were SO good!! There is quite a selection of food at this restaurant. Mmmm…raspberry shakes. LeBeau’s definitely has the best shakes at Bear Lake that we’ve tried. We love to stop and get ice cream and fries at Ballard’s. The food is pretty good too! Salt Lake (north county): Hires Big H The Hires Burgers are yummy! San Juan
Share your ideas for San Juan County restaurants in the comments for when we visit.
Best Pizza in the world! I crave their pizza all the time. Make sure to get the sticks with cheese. Mmmm! Best Chicken Taco ever! This old drug store has delicious everything!! Summit (Park City): Davanza’s The pizza slices are as big as your head! The Buffalo Fries are a must!
Dairy Delight is that perfect little hamburger joint with lots of surprising extras like scones, tacos, and spaghetti.
The pizza is delicious! And we loved that you can watch it be made right from your table. Chubby’s has yummy burgers, but make sure to get the scones! They are so good! Another restaurant with a few locations, but we LOVE the Pasta Bar here. We usually skip the pizza (which is great) and just get homemade pasta. Yum! What kid wouldn’t want to eat here? You can sit at a table on a train, there are trains to watch inside, and a train table to play with. This is kid heaven and the food is good, too! If you’re visiting Capitol Reef, get one of the best burgers in the state at Slacker’s. The burgers and sandwiches are huge, and the shakes are delicious! I know, we listed this one twice, but it is seriously our favorite restaurant in Utah! You will eat outside at the Burger Bar, but they are most known for all the exotic meats that they offer. Weber (Family Style): Jeremiah’s They are famous for their huge breakfast food! This is the child’s pancake. All of the food is yummy here. Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save
