Burger Bar - Roy, Utah

For most of my life I have lived in the Salt Lake area. This had led to countless trip north on Interstate 15 for work, play, or vacation. In all that time I cannot recall ever getting off at the Roy exit in Davis County. Maybe I went to the Hill Air Force Base Museum as a kid, or showed a home in that area, but I don't remember.

Last week we were heading to Bear Lake and had previously decided to make a stop in Roy, Utah. Why you might ask? For the best reason possible: Food.

The Burger Bar has been a Roy institution since 1956. I am sure that it was on a small country road back then. With it's location at a busy intersection and close proximity to I-15, it has exploded in popularity. Places like this create a cult-like following. Add to this the fact that Burger Bar was featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. It has the 50's style outdoor walk-up counter. Can we say Americana? There are some concrete benches out front where you can sit down to eat. The other option is to take it to-go.



I ordered a Big Cheese Ben burger with fries and a large Dr. Pepper (that has the great crunchy ice). Rachel got the same except for onion rings instead of fries. It was all delicious. Most places that have been on Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives are. First, the burgers are HUGE. You can tell that they use good quality meat. The buns must be home-made as they are soft (it reminds you of Hires' buns) and the burgers are nice and juicy with a big dollop of home-made fry sauce on them. The fries are twice-fried. They have a crunch and are overall delicious. The onion rings are also amazing; crunchy with true batter, not the bread crumbs, this makes a thin breading, not too greasy.



There was a third of my burger and half the fries remaining and I was stuffed. We got there at 10:45am (it opens at 10:00am for true Foodies) and by 11:15am the place was getting busy. I didn't eat again until about 6:30pm that evening.

For anyone traveling north or south on I-15 through Davis County, don't hesitate to stop at the Burger Bar in Roy. Your only disappointment will be trying to find the northbound freeway entrance after you eat.

  3. I had the opportunity to eat at this little dive and I will say that it was excellent. I had a very difficult time playing golf after putting the burger and fries away. This is a great reccomendation for anyone in the Roy area or traveling on I-15. Jeff, keep it up with your great recommendations.

  4. Also the first preliminary fight is chosen by Chuck Liddell, as
    Tito won the coin toss and got the first fighter pick. Jorgensen Finale also known as The Mma Gloves 17 Finale is an upcoming mixed martial arts event to be held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

    But will it be enough to pave the way for another successful season of The mma gloves?
    With knockouts, submissions, as well as episode 2 in its entirety, commercial free.
