How Do The Best Burgers In Heber Valley Stack Up?

Considered to be a national staple of the American diet, the hamburger has become so much more than a common fast food menu item. We tried several burgers throughout town to see which burgers outdid the rest and came out as shining stars in Heber Valley. See below and let us know your favorites!

Back 40 Ranch House & Grill 

You don’t get much more local than two pastures away. The beef for all the burgers, meatloaf, chili, and steaks comes from cows raised next to the Back 40. Staying true to its mission of providing farm-to-table cuisine in a family-friendly setting, the local owners of Back 40 source their beef from the local Circle Bar Ranch, cheeses from Heber Valley Artisan Cheese, bread from a local bakery, spread from the local Pepperlane Products, and even the table salt from Redmond Real Salt located right here in Heber Valley. Talk about quality products. Try the famous Back 40 Burger which includes caramelized onions, pastrami, jalapeno bacon cheddar cheese, and a special sauce – you’re supporting lots of local businesses when you do so the calories should count less! Learn about the restaurant's additional sustainability efforts here.

 

Dairy Keen 

Proudly serving our community for over 75 years, this local family-owned eatery is a favorite for many. Known as “Home of the Train,” Dairy Keen diners are greeted with a train-themed interior including a train that runs along the top of the walls throughout the seating area. Be sure to try the Train Burger and fries - it’s a local favorite with a quarter pound of beef, ham, Swiss and American cheeses, Thousand Island dressing, tomato, lettuce, and pickles, and the patties are made fresh daily. And save room for an over-the-top shake. With over 35 shake flavors plus additional toppings, sundaes, slushies, and sherbets, your sweet tooth will be more than satiated.

 

Daniels Summit Lodge Pole Grill

Located about 20 minutes southeast of downtown Heber City, the picturesque Daniels Summit Lodge and Lodge Pole Grill sit alongside Highway 40 and are a convenient stop on your way to Strawberry Reservoir or to explore the eastern region of Heber Valley. If looking for accommodations, this is a perfect lodge with an onsite restaurant offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If passing by, the cozy dining outlet is an ideal spot to fill up on your way. We suggest the Summit Burger with bacon and fries. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, then try the Avalanche Burger topped with pulled pork and a signature sauce, also served with fries (pictured here).

 

Goochy Goo BBQ

Come on... with a name like this, you know to expect great barbeque. And with that, a really great burger. The menu features items named "Hot Mess"  which consists of a baked potato loaded with butter, choice of meat, cheese, bacon, onion, and southwestern ranch and "Goochy Sundae" offering a hearty portion of mac-n-cheese covered in choice of meat, bacon, onions, and BBQ ranch. Ribs, burgers, and combos are all part of the selection at this tasty dining outlet. Check out this happening food truck and be sure to ask about the Grandaddy Burger!

 

Granny's Drive In

Open for over 40 years, this local favorite is now a year-round restaurant serving up fresh burgers, fries, and thick shakes. May we suggest the Western Burger topped with 1/3 pound slow-smoked brisket, smoky bacon, and beer-battered onion rings? Or perhaps the Pastrami & Swiss Burger layered with hardwood smoked pastrami and melted Swiss cheese? And you definitely need to try one of its famous over-the-top ice cream shakes! The offer traditional flavors and fun seasonal shake mixes that are sure to excite your taste buds

 

Lola’s Street Kitchen 

Originating as the first food truck in Heber Valley, Lola’s is so well-loved the owners were able to establish a permanent location on Midway Main Street. Served on a delicious potato roll using quality Angus beef, the burger, cheeseburger, jalapeno bacon burger, and blue moon burger (topped with Gorgonzola cheese) are all large-portion burgers made locally with a side of garlic parmesan fries. And if you’re looking to get really creative and try something different, then go for the margarita burger topped with sundried tomatoes, capers, fresh basil, and mozzarella cheese with a garlic aioli sauce. Good luck finishing the whole thing!!

 

Midway Mercantile

Known for its “hearth to table” cooking style and selection of fresh, locally-sourced menu options, Midway Mercantile is a favorite restaurant for both locals and visitors. Using the local Midway’s Van Wagoner ground beef and locally produced Heber Valley Artisan Cheese, this gourmet burger is dressed with a sriracha aioli for a little kick in each bite. Served with house-made fries, of course!

 

OG Café

A highly acclaimed and regular recipient of Utah's Best of State for “Local Burgers,” the OG Café is well-known and adored by many in Heber Valley. The extensive menu offers so much more than just coffee and pastries. The local owners have a love for smoked meats and hearty portions. Stop by for lunch seven days a week and try any one of the stacked half-pound burgers - using local beef from 01 Bar Ranch. We recommend the Pancho Villa with applewood smoked bacon, guacamole, special OG mayo, aged cheddar cheese, and jalapeno fries.

 

Soldier Hollow Grill

If venturing toward Soldier Hollow for golf, fishing, trail access, or off-roading, plan for lunch at Soldier Hollow Grill inside the clubhouse. The burgers are ground fresh onsite daily and the fries are cut fresh in the kitchen each day too. Aside from a traditional burger or cheeseburger, be a little adventurous and try the pastrami burger or the bacon and bleu burger. Add a side order of deep-fried pickles and you’re sure to get your fill and leave more than satisfied.

 

But Wait, There’s More!

You can consider these additional eateries also known for serving up a delicious burger option. And if you’re staying a few days, you can visit several of these local restaurants and let us know which is your favorite.

  • Holiday Bowling Lanes: locally sourced beef and a family-owned operation.
  • Melvin’s Public House: great pub cuisine with a local sports bar vibe.
  • Mountainland One Stop: way more than just a gas station and convenience store. Stop in at Moe's Grill for some of the best grab-and-go dining options in town.
  • The Lakehouse at Deer Creek: this upscale dining establishment is a happening spot in the summer on the deck overlooking the lake. 
  • Z's Steak & Chop Haus: enjoy a European-style ambience at this prime steakhouse where the burger is served with a signature sauce.

Heber Valley has been the place for families to go for several generations because of the laid-back atmosphere, amazing scenery, moderate temperatures, and close proximity to the Wasatch Front. The burgeoning dining scene is one more reason to pay this scenic alpine town a visit!
