Classic Burgers and Car Hops

Hires has one of the best burgers in town and still maintains classic root beer in a frosty mug, car hop and soda fountain service. Fresh ground beef and incredibly fresh buns are their signature items. It's a great hamburger joint that will take you back in time.

The root beer was served in a frosty mug and tasted delicious. However, no refills were offered. There is a wide variety of hamburgers, sandwiches, soups, salads, and pizza. The portions were just right. The Hawaiian burger was very good, and the turkey cranberry sandwich was too soggy because it was made with regular white bread.

This is a nice, friendly establishment. They make a great burger, and the iced root beer was refreshing.

Go somewhere where they can remember t if they took your order or not. This is not the place. Food is good. Dirty inside and service is slow and not worth the ok food.

GREAT if you miss the old fashioned rootbeer and long for a rootbeer float. Hamburgers are good - buns amazingly fresh. They have fish and chicken and salads and pizza - something for most everyone who wants a fast and inexpensive meal after skiing.

Hires is always a local favorite with me and my family! Also fun to go with friends. They have added a great-tasting gluten-free pizza crust which is a huge bonus for me! But their burgers and fries can't be beat; as well as their milkshakes, freezes, floats, etc. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on their menu!... More

Salt Lakers who love burgers love Hires Big H. Really good fries, fantastic fry sauce (for those of you non-natives, this is an Idaho/Utah delight), and great burgers. This is like our In-n-Out. I've been to Hires a few times, love their burgers, also their BLTs (and of course the fries). But in recent years, me and beef don't get... More
