always a fresh salad or sandwich

this place has held to its standards well-there is a predictable fresh selection of salads, French onion/daily soup, sandwiches, with some rotational pasta salads and specials-fairly priced and a reasonable wine list at night

We were going to a play at the Pioneer theater at the University of Utah and wanted a place close so we went here. I generally dislike eating out because food is always bland, expensive, not very good, etc. I was pleasantly surprised at this restaurant. I ordered the Chili Relleno. It came with yams and a squash /corn succotash.... More

The service is good but the food is terrible! I don't think I have given a 1 star resteraunt review. I will have to go look. This place deserves it. My husband ordered Fajitas and they came out cold and tough and rubbery like they had been reheated in a microwave. Truly aweful. He did complain and did not eat... More

I was in Salt Lake City for work, and boy, was this a find! I went back more than once! The first day I had the lamb and sweet potato tacos which came with a small salad. DELISH. I got the Mediterranean pasta salad to go for later. Also great. It came with a buttery toasted bread. My only complaint... More

I had out-of-town friends visiting--both in the hospitality business--so wanted to assure they had a special lunch experience, which is why I chose Red Butte. I had not been there in awhile and Wow has it gone downhill. My brat special was ...simply bad. The other entrees were hardly eaten. What has happened???? Bad.

I had the steak tacos, which were great. However, the sides that come with the meal aren't seasoned very well. The black beans were bland. The rice was firm and tasteless. The tortilla chips were just okay. The mixed vegetables - corn, bell peppers, lettuce, cojito, etc. - were drenched in a sauce that is really sweet and unpalatable. I... More

Waitress was efficient and friendly. The lunch menu was limited, but the food was fantastic. Healthy ingredients were presented beautifully and we're very tasty.

Just had lunch here today. I had the tacos. They were ok but I had a lot better. Four other had lunch with me and each one liked their meal. One had a salad, one had the Philly like sandwich and one had the turkey. The service was good and I liked the location. BTW If you park in the... More

This little gem of a restaurant is located on the east side of the valley fairly close to the Natural History Museum and Zoo. We stumbled upon it and totally enjoyed the variety and quality selection they offered. The grandkids loved the burgers, I loved the "southwest" salmon offering. Good food at a very fair price.
