It was National "Pi" Day 3-14 so my husband and I decided to see what all the fuss is about with The Dodo's Pie! We absolutely loved the Banana Cream Cheese Pie, the graham cracker crust honestly makes it all perfect. The price is a bit steep for a single piece of pie, even though it IS a very large... More

I just love this restaurant. I've been coming here for the past 18 years and it is still as good now as it was then. I absolutely love the turkey sandwich with the BBQ dip. It's just so delicious. My husband got the pork quesadilla this time and it was amazing as well. I've never had a bad experience here.

Try the specials, they are absolutely worth it. Stuffed pork chop today was delicious. The chocolate almond mousse cake was spectacular. Love this place.

I think the service here is excellent. Friendly people. Fast and high quality food and service. I like the venue as well. And the menu. And especially the banana cream pie. A real SLC treasure. Not inexpensive, but not particularly expensive either. Always look forward to returning. Great for late night dining as well. A wonderful vibe.

My husband and I had a late lunch about 3pm. I had rueben and tomato seafood bisque. Both were very good. My husband had shrimp salad sandwich with salad. Sandwich filling should have had more shrimp. Salad needed more dressing. Based on reviews we tried the toll house pie. You need to like the texture and taste of cookie dough... More

Although their location has changed several times, their food has not. I'm a big fan of their smoked turkey sandwich and the honey salmon. They always have great soups and their deserts are the best in the city

I went there yesterday for lunch,and their food is amazing. They give muffins for a little snack before the meal comes. They are so good. I got the Reuben sandwich which was delightful. The staff is very kind. The building inside and out is beautiful, beautiful decor. I'm guessing, the manager, came around and greeted his guests. Just a fun... More

Four of us dined here for dinner after skiing. Three of us had the quiche and side salad. Both were good and freshly prepared. The other person had the chicken enchiladas and enjoyed the dish. However he prefers a red sauce. Each couple shared a slice of pie. Yumm! Both the banana cream pie and key lime pie were excellent.

Dodo is one of those legendary, been-here-forever SLC eateries. Popular? Pins the needle. But here we go again...my decibel and heavy-salt aversions rule out a higher rating. Starts out real nice...a moist and tasty bran muffin arrives moments after we're seated. The frigid day calls for hot soup. Let's have the Manhattan clam chowder. Mmmmmm. Uh-oh. Enough salt to kibosh... More
