Fodor's Expert Review Hires Big H

$ East Side and the University of Utah Burger

A family tradition in Salt Lake since 1959, this old-school burger and shakes joint with curbside car service elevates traditional diner favorites by using fresh, local products prepared in-house. Inside the renovated dining room, root-beer floats are a staple, as are "H" burgers such as the New York H, Canadian H, and Mountain H, all of which pair fresh patties, tasty buns, and the owner's proprietary fry sauce (a Utah staple) with a variety of condiments. There are a couple of additional locations in the suburbs. Despite the name, the restaurant has no relation to Hires Root Beer.
