There are many great places to get a juicy hamburger, we thought we would give you our top picks.
The Wasatch Back Burger is hands down my favorite burger inside of the Heber Valley and out. Talk about WOW, a little bit of spice, a little bit of sweet, and a whole lot of flavor – words can’t describe the deliciousness of this hamburger.
Toppings included are bacon, yellow pepper rings, provolone cheese, Wasatch back special sauce, onions and mushrooms grilled to perfection, along with pickles, tomatoes and lettuce accompanied by a Black Angus beef patty on a savory bun.
On your next trip to Heber Valley be sure to stop by Wasatch Back Grill - tell them Jessica sent ya.
My pick has to be the bacon cheese burger hot off the grill at Holiday Lanes bowling alley. There’s something about this burger that just speaks to the pragmatic tradition of the American burger.
No frills. No ingredients imported from the hills of Spain. No gold leaf sesame seeds. Just a fresh and juicy quarter pound patty, with a slice of American cheese, topped with the manliest choice of cured meats, bacon. And of course, no burger is complete without lettuce, tomato and onion. If you want to eat where the locals eat, give Holiday Lanes a try.
The Soldier Hollow Grill is a place the locals rave about. The beautiful views of the Heber Valley surround you as you sit down with good friends for a burger and a tall drink. I orderd the crowd favorite the Pastrami Burger. Just looking at it makes your mouth water. Swiss cheese melting over the sides, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, with crunch pickles, and red onions top thick slices of pastrami over a quarter pound of beef.
This burger was too big to get my mouth around. But you know, I put on my big girl pants and did what every country girl does… took care of business bite by bite.
I chose the Cowboy Burger from the Junction because of its reputation and for its size. I was pleased to sink my teeth into the burger and was pleased that it lived up to its hype. The Cowboy Burger features a thick meat patty that is smothered with grilled onion rings and glazed with just the right amount of a sweet hickory barbeque sauce. Several slices of thick, juicy bacon added the last bit of goodness. The buns were slightly toasted and the burger was large enough to satisfy my hunger and even make me want to eat another soon.
Other honorable mentions you should try.
