It is time to take another tip to Utah and look at some of the fine establishments there. Have you noticed how many of the restaurants are all about the meat? Steak, buffalo burgers and all kinds of other interesting meat choices await you at some of Utah’s finest restaurants. It appears to be cultural, as in the last article, we ran across a restaurant that served wild game. It kind of reminds me in a way of some of the Kansas restaurants we found. Okay, let’s get to it.
First of all, if you had to guess, how many restaurants would you say are in the entire state of Utah? The number is always changing, but according to one top travel review site, the answer stands at 6,246 currently. That is quite a few restaurants, and the city we are visiting today has 217 to its name. Out of those 217 restaurants in the city of Orem, Utah, what’s up first?
You might have expected we were going to land on a barbecue restaurant, steakhouse or something similar. We did, and your first featured restaurant is Five Star BBQ Co., which is located on North Geneva Road. Reviews talk about meat that falls off the bone, and that is exactly what you want from a barbecue joint.
Joe’s Cafe is another popular restaurant in Orem, and it can be found on South State Street. Are you ready for silver dollar pancakes and biscuits and gravy? One more popular spot in Orem, Utah is another cafe, Cafe Rio, only this one, located on State Street as well, serves up delicious Mexican cuisine. It is located on the north end of State Street, not the south end like Joe’s Cafe.
We have time for one more top restaurant in Orem, Utah. What would you like to see? I think I grabbed a good one for you because it serves up some of the best pizza in the city. Oh yes, pizza, and your spot for a delicious pie is Pizzeria 712. What’s interesting is this pizza joint is also located on State Street. That is another thing we keep running into when it comes to these restaurants in Utah. They seem to be located in the same vicinity, like all cities in Utah put their restaurants in rows. Well, there you have it folks, some of the best restaurants in the city of Orem, Utah.
