3 Northern Utah restaurants to check out this week

The Top of Utah food scene is bursting with a unique variety of flavors. Explore it by eating at one (or all!) of these area restaurants. 

1. Lost Texan BBQ

It doesn’t take long to figure out there’s some true pit barbecue nearby upon walking into Lost Texan BBQ in Pleasant View. Marti Hammon and her now-husband opened the restaurant, located at 1144 W. 2700 North, Pleasant View, in July of 2015. 

Her specialty is sliced beef brisket, but they also serve chopped brisket, chicken quarters, shredded chicken sausage and pulled pork with ribs on the weekend. Hammon jokes that she is the Texas side, and her husband James is the North Carolina side. Click here to read more about Lost Texan BBQ
