This page provides our latest list of where to find Salt Lake City's Best Burgers.
Welcome to the Taste of Salt Lake TM, our official online edition.
Salt Lake Restaurants are vibrant pieces of what makes our city memorable. They're an introduction to community culture for our Utah visitors, and a place where our locals can celebrate milestones or simply enjoy an evening out.
Not long ago, people ate lots of ordinary burgers - These burgers were perfectly acceptable. They were inexpensive, satisfied the appetite, and tasted much better than many of the other foods that people were eating. Plenty of burger places were opened and they served billions and billions.
But there was something missing - the need for something satisfying and real, something basic and good, something fresh - a place with a burger soul. A place that burger lovers could call their own and feel pride in recommending to their friends. Here are some Salt Lake burger places that deserve high marks.
A few months back, I finally got a chance to stop by and find out for myself what my friends have been telling me. That this bar (yes, a bar, you have to be at least 21 to get in) serves up one of the best burgers you are going to get in Salt Lake! Sure, they have a full bar menu of appetizers, some salads and sandwiches, but every time I have gone back for lunch, everyone there is downing huge burgers. Located a half a block west of Spring Mobile Ballpark, home to our Salt Lake Bees, it looks like other bars with pool tables, plasma TVs, video games, etc. But, what sets this apart from other bars is their focus on really great burgers, and under $10 to boot. And that includes fries and the tax! It has been written that no matter what the fixings, the burger should support a "visceral delight." And Lucky 13's does! These 7 ounces of never-frozen ground chuck are served on local Stoneground buns with plenty of mixed greens and more.
Some of the burgers to try are: the Celestial burger which comes with smoked bacon, grilled onions, cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce or the Big Benny which touts double the meat and double the cheese. I'll start my diet tomorrow. I have had the "Breath Enhancer" Garlic Burger twice now, It is fabulous!. Once the Bees season starts this place is going to be packed before and after the games, but I have a feeling it is going to do well on non-game nights as well. Access from downtown or south valley is easy because the 13th south Trax station which is right there. A 1,400 square foot patio is very popular in good weather.
Lucky 13, 135 W. 1300 South, Salt Lake City. 801.487.4418.
The kitchen is open daily from 11am to 8pm and until 11pm on Thursdays to Saturday nights.
Five Guys Burgers & Fries
I have finally broken down and admitted that Five Guys Burgers (Numerours Salt Lake locations) are down-right good burgers. I tried them a few times over the years while vacationing back east, but was not impressed. Here in Salt Lake though, I kept seeing filled parking lots during the day, which over-flowed during the dinner hours, so, lets try them again. Then a second time, and a third. Five Guys Makes A Seriously Good Burger! My apologies that it took me so long to include your offerings. Careful of the side orders of fries though. Their small serving can feed three, way too much, but good as well.
