    On your guys recs, I went to R+R this week. Completely average, I was disappointed. I had a pulled pork sandwich and mashed potatoes. I was expecting a step or two above Pat's, being the best int he valley. It was a bit worse. Maybe everyone was comparing briskets-to-briskets?

    I think brisket is what they're known for. If I'm paying for bbq that's usually what I get, I can make some damn good pulled pork at home for dirt cheap but I rarely cook my own brisket because of how spendy it is if you buy a whole one.

    I tried 565 recently. Good but I still think R&R is better.

    Smokin Bones is a little bbq place in Bountiful that I like better than r&r. Only problem is that if you want anything other than their sweet sauce you have to request it and they act like you are stealing their 1st born.

I rarely pay for Italian food as its easy to cook good stuff. But I'm more than happy to pay for what they're serving. Really hope they do well. That locale has been through so many different restaurants. Great food, huge portions, service was excellent. Chef came out and talked to every table. Can't recommend highly enough.

    They are opening one close by me at 15th/15th in the old Paris Bistro spot. I really enjoyed Paris, and rarely go out for Italian, but have heard nothing but great things about the food and the family behind Sicilia Mia. Psyched to give it a try.

    Iím not sure if me or anyone else has mentioned Oífalafal in Sugarhouse, but thatís maybe my favorite quick Middle East spot.
    I canít remember the name of the taco truck parked at TF Brewing, but those were the best tacos Iíve had in SLC. Barrio on 9th South is ok for my taco fix but not mind blowing. Nice patio.

    Breakfast sandwiches at Caputos on 15th east are fucking awesome.

    this is one great thing ive found since moving. There is an incredible Mexican place in my new town. Very close, very authentic. The Al Pastor are out of this world. I dont even care if they have anything else on the menu.

    Randomly walked into that Gandolfo's place downtown the other week and had a sandwich. Pretty good, but then I was just in NY last week and had some "real" sandwiches. Gonna take a few more weeks to allow myself to forget about the great $4.50 bodega sandwiches I had before being ok with paying $10 for something half as good.

    Want a legit sandwich, go to Groves Market on main street in Salt Lake. Bit south of down town. Gandolfo's gets none of my money.

    Also good in that neighborhood is Sage market. Tiny little Japanese supermarket, but they have a couple tables in the back, and will serve up some tasty food. legit ramen, etc...

    Going to dinner with some people tonight. Suggestions were solicited, I put my vote in for MakanMakan. That was promptly shut down and apparently we're going to Vessel Kitchen. Goddamn savages.

    You should stage a protest by telling them to fuck off.

    I know this is the SLC thread, but I need PC advice. What's the current hot Main St. place with good food and cocktails? Bonus points if there is a coupon in the Park Record. I think the last time I ate on Main st. was at Chimayo, probably 7 years ago.

    For my money Handle is a cant miss (and it is some money). Chimayo is still solid and you cant go wrong there.
