Local favorite

This restaurant is styled like a retro 50's diner. It's loud and quite busy a lot of the local flair eats here. The menu has a lot of great options to choose from. The price is reasonable as well, it is one of my usual stops for good people watching and a hearty plate of food.

People just rave about this restaurant, but the last time we were there, it was greasy and the food was cold. We waited in line for about 1/2 hour and were very disappointed because in the past it was pretty good.

Found this place on Flavortown USA's website and when I looked at the menu, wasn't overly impressed, but the service was good and when the food came out(had the Utah Omelet, with bacon and a biscuit) it all looked good and it all tasted great, besides the biscuit, which was really bad, it might be better with the gravy, but...

I've loved coming to The Blue Plate over the years. We almost always have fantastic meals while listening to cool tunes. Today the hubby and I arrived at 11am to have brunch. I ordered the Spanish Omelet and he had the Traditional Benedict. Both were fantastic. In addition, the service was great even though they were slammed! We have also... More

Won’t say I will never go to the Blue Plate Diner again, however, I will be a little cautious of the server next time. We started out waiting about five minutes for coffee creamer. I ordered the Utah Omelet w/onions (99¢ extra), and dry wheat toast extra dark. We received our order none of which was not hot off the... More

Just as the reviews about this diner were mixed, so was our meal. My husband's meal was very good and plentiful. I asked for an omelette with onions and spinach. My onion omelette arrived laid on top of a mound of spinach. I guess there are many ways to cook an omelette. The place was very crowded and noisy. Service... More

With this place highlighted on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives, we were hoping for something special. Frankly the management isn't taking advantage of a great opportunity put on their plate. I ordered the Wednesday special (Chicken Enchilada), my wife Eggs Benedict. When the cute waitress took the order she said it would be right up. But we waited ... and... More

We forgot that we'd read a recent review regarding the pork burrito. We both ordered it - it was fresh& tasty, but we thought that our waitress had accidentally given us the vegetarian burrito. My husband then remembered he'd read a recent review where someone had been disappointed with their pork salsa verde burrito. Think of it as a nice... More

I just ate here again and realized that I've never told anyone about it. Shame on me. It has the best breakfasts around. It has a fun atmosphere, with many eclectic items, like an old bar area, classic bikes, old postcards everywhere and classic paper placemats. The owners have really captured the styling of a place to remember. As if... More

Went for breakfast recently after we decided not to wait an hour to get into another place that we had gone to first. We arrived at prime time breakfast hour on a Saturday morning and only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. This was my first experience with this diner, and I would definitely go back.
