If you have lived in the Salt Lake area for longer than a few months, you have likely heard of Moochie's Meatballs. I first went here in 2008 and it's an addiction that is hard to break. They have a selection of sandwiches but two that they are most famous for: Moochie's Handmade Meatball and the Authentic Philly Cheesesteak. A classic philly cheesesteak consists of thinly sliced ribeye steak, grilled onions, and is topped with melted American Cheese.
Most recently, we went here at 1:30pm on a Saturday afternoon. Rachel had just completed a big project and we were in the mood for some celebration food. We were misled in our belief that it would be quiet at that time; the place was packed.
|Not a clear picture but here are the details: 12 inches long, 1.5 pounds|
It's a little confusing as to how to order. Be sure to read the "How to order a philly cheesesteak:"
Step 2: Let us know if you do NOT want onions.
Step 3: Let us know if would like to add fresh grilled mushrooms, and/or roasted bell peppers, or any other variations.
I would like to add a few steps:
Step 4: Grab a bottle of the Jalapeno Sauce to pour all over your sandwich.
Step 5: If you took the advice of ordering the 12-inch, eat it all. You won't be hungry for it but some power overtakes you and the energy is summoned.
Step 6: Take a Nap. It will be much needed.

The popularity of Moochie's has spread like a bad attitude in an office where everyone hates their job. Get there prior to 11:30am on weekdays and if you have to wait, it's worth it.
It's hard to eat at Moochie's too often. Your diet and workout routine will suffer. If you do find yourself pulled to their location and your tummy isn't quite ready, go to Guzzi's. It's one block away and then you will be ready to return to Moochie's the next day.
