Indie Ogden Review: Maria’s Mexican Restaurant

I love food. There, I said it.

You’re Gonna Wanna Spend Time at Harley & Buck’s this Restaurant Week

“It’s killer,” owner Jamie Lythgoe says about her restaurant’s signature dish, Utah’s Best Smoked Prime Rib. When Harley & Buck’s moved down the hill from Eden 18 months ago, they inherited this big ol’ granddaddy of a bright red smoker in their new location just off 25th on Washington. (That’s not to say they weren’t smoking up a storm before they moved; check out this smoker trailer they still use for events). Chef Edgar...
