There are so many ways to serve a hamburger. This is unique and very flavorful. Add to the fresh taste of the meat, a flavorful and wonderful texture bun made with potatoes. If you like fry sauce, theirs is the best! The fries are fresh too and not the skinny ones you get at a fast food restaurant. Comfortable couples... More

I love that Hires is still here. They have fresh food, excellent burgers, fries, onion rings, best rootbeer around and you can get it in a "bottomless" mug. The atmosphere is nostalgic 50's era, you can park in the car-hop area and get served in your car. Fun, Fantastic, I hope they will always be around. Thanks Hires!

Great local burger joint with option to dine in or stay in your car and yet, it has more than burgers. The best fries and the Big H burger, or grilled ham & cheese along with a root beer with pebble ice are all great go to options. One of my top favs!

The big "H" is the best choice for lunch or casual dinner. Fries are fresh peeled and yummy!!! Try a chocolate coke if you're brave. It's so good. My friends and family either love it or hate it!! Tropical cokes are also a nice treat!!

Went for lunch and had our favorite cranberry oven roasted turkey. Servers are friendly and food is great.

Hires is a fast food family treat. They have a diverse menu, but it is too expensive for frequent visits.

Our family recently went to Hires Big H. The food came out quickly, hot, and fresh. Everyone enjoyed their burgers and fries. The best part about this place is their fry sauce! It's delicious! Put it on your fries and burgers, you won't be sorry.

Best malts in town with terrific, fresh and tasty burgers! Our favorite is the meal for two, which includes pizza, salad, and a drink.

Grew up in SLC and Hires was always a goto for great hamburgers. original location on 7th East and this is great location for people in Sandy. Across from hotel where we stay when we come to visit family. A must do when visiting, and be sure and have the rootbeer in frosted mug!!
