    Ditto for me. The bread is very dry. My love for Gandolfo's does not extend to any of their other menu items. Just the Harlem with steak sauce for breakfast.

    As ERCougar pointed out, their deli is as "NYC" as Taco Bell is Mexican food.

    I believe the Provo location was the first one, no? Looks like he franchised his way to a nice payday. Good for him.

    Ruth's was temporarily closed for remodeling and expansion of the kitchen. There is no better autumn morning breakfast than on Ruth's patio.

    This is great news.

    The bread quality at Gandolfo's used to be hit and miss. I may be imagining it, but it seems to be much more consistent lately (on the good side).

    I love all the small drive up hamburger joints that populate the rural towns of Utah. There is Sherald's in Price, Santa Queen in Santaquin, Stans in Hanksville, Little Acorn in Spanish Fork, Ideal Dairy(?) in Richfield, and dozens of others with great onion rings, burgers and shakes.

    I also love the drive up Crest gas stations dotted around Utah County. You can go grab a 44 oz. soda without leaving the comfort of your own vehicle.

    Oooh...good one. These are almost always really good, and they do seem a little unique to rural Utah.

    Stan's was awful this summer when we stopped on our way back form Powell. I don't think I will stop next year. It was that bad.

    Little Acorn in Spanish Fork is awesome.

    Seriously? That's too bad. It was an institution growing up on Lake Powell trips. I haven't been there for about five years and it was good then. Maybe ownership has changed.

    Were you on the annual houseboat trip with your in-laws? That's a great tradition they have. It seems like they've been doing it forever.

    Yep it was the annual trip. It is a very fun tradition. Unfortunately this might be the last year. From what they have told us they are considering leaving on a mission before next summer.

    We didn't hit it up last year for some reason. I think we were rolling through Hanksville around 10:30. This year however, it was awful and way to expensive.The service was as bad as it has ever been as well. If we do go next year and the mission hasn't happened yet, then I don't think we will make the stop.

    No truer words have been spoken on this board. The spirit has confirmed this for me!

    Raspberry shakes in the summer. Any other time of year it was something along with caramel usually banana or an Oreo shake.

    I always get their bacon burger. I am sucker for those.

    I've been traveling all over the state for work and have stopped in at a variety of burger barns and restaurants. The Gatorz drive-in in Salina made me sick. Houston's Restaurant in Kanab was delish! And there were exactly zero places to eat in Scofield.

    I worked a summer for the DWR doing creel survey's at Scofield and Joe's Valley. There was a little grease diner at Scofield that was horrid. I am not surprised that they are no longer in business. The one at the docks in Joe's Valley wasn't half bad.

    Everytime I play Spanish Oaks I stop at the Little Acorn, also Barrys and Glades in Spanish fork are very good.

    Barrys you have to get the Chicken Taco.

    Glades the english chips are delcious as well as the grasshopper shakes.

    Spanish Fork is a slice of heaven on earth.

    The Art City Trolley in Springville is as Utah as it gets....fantastic food from salads, to burgers, to great RIBS.


    That place is totally Utah and is excellent for those who haven't been.

    Granny Sycamore's bread. I imagine heroin can not be much worse than the addictive nature and delicious carbs contained in each loaf.

    I like Morrison Meat Pies smothered in either Chili or Vegitable soup

    Alright, I just bought a sticky bun from Flour Girls & Dough Boys in American Fork, and it was ridiculously good.

    Granny Annie's diner in Kaysville has EXCELLENT breakfast. Scones and cinnamon roles the size of a dinner plate, etc.

    Flour Girls and Dough Boys is my favorite place to study. Their raspberry bars are killer.

    Not all of their food is created equal, but much of it is rich and homey and satisfying. Avoid their chocolate croissants if you've ever had the real thing. Their tomato soup... no words exist to describe its loveliness on a cold day.
