I am a native Utahn! Hires has been a local favorite for me entire life! The food is freshly prepared, is served in a timely manner and is always delicious. You don't want to miss the good food and authentic Utah icon restaurant.

Love their Hires blue bacon burger and grilled halibut sandwich. And you've got to have their root beer and/or root beer floats.

We love this place. We always get the pizza. I also enjoy the flavored soda. Especially the cherry coke. It is a great place to bring kids as well.
