With so many dining options in Davis County and so little time dig in, Yelp’s making the decision process a little less difficult.
The online service vets reviews from fellow diners and creates a ranking system compiled with comments and useful information. Here’s where locals and visitors alike deem the best places to grab a bite in Davis County.
WHERE: 2100 S Main St., Bountiful
HOURS: 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Friday, closed Saturday and Sunday
Yelp rating: 4.5 stars based on 85 reviews
The eatery calls itself “Italian,” although reviewers rave about Vito’s Philly cheesesteak sandwich. And the food is good enough for Vito’s to defy convention. It only accepts cash and runs limited hours — open for lunch until 2 p.m. or until the food’s gone. Patrons pay their bill by dropping cash in buckets and counting their own change. Enthusiastic reviews, however, show Vito’s is worth the hassle and the long lines.
“Good thing it’s not freezing out ‘cause my mouth is watering and I think drooling is not far away and frozen drool is kinda nasty,” said reviewer Average C. in January. “Needless to say…it was well worth the wait!!!”
A sandwich, drink and chips at Vito’s runs about $10.
2. Boba World
WHERE: 750 S. 512 West, Woods Cross
HOURS: 10:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 4-8 p.m. Sunday

Boba World serves Shanghainese favorites like fat noodles, dumplings and egg rolls, along with plenty of dishes loaded with veggies, meat or tofu. Plenty of reviewers recommend washing down a meal with the eatery’s name-sake boba tea, too.
“These dumplings were the best, juiciest, most authentic that I’ve found so far,” said reviewer Chelsea C. in September. “I thought the boba was delicious, sweet, and just the right amount of chewy.”

To get your barbecue fix, head to Holy Smoke and get an order of brisket, a rack of ribs or a plate of pulled pork. Patrons love the establishment’s sauce selection and praise the cornbread and fried pickles.
“The brisket was really good; moist and tender, the smoke flavor was just right. The chicken was ridiculous, I’ve never tasted it’s equal,” said reviewer Mike M. in July.
“Everything is very good, but my personal favorite is the hush puppies. There is nowhere else in Utah that I’ve found that has good hush puppies,” said reviewer Matt L. in June.
