Park City, Utah is known for it’s world-class, five-star dining. If there’s an award out there for fine dining, you can rest assured, one of our restaurants have won it! That being the case, you’ll be happy to know that there are other options for dining during your stay in Park City – you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a great meal in Park City. There are plenty of casual, fun restaurants to choose from that won;t break the bank and are fun for families too!
I hesitate to tell you about this first restaurant, as it is truly a locals secret. Uptown Fare, located at the very top of Main Street, is open Monday-Friday for lunch and serves up homemade soups, salads and baked goods to hungry locals, visitors in the know, and even celebrities every now and again. Karleen, the owner, makes her selection of soups fresh each day, and the selection is ever changing, less a few favorite staples like the Tomato Soup. Lining the countertop you’ll find home baked cookies, brownies, and rice crispy treats, so you’ll be sure to end your meal on a happy note! In the summer, be sure to try the refreshing Watermelon Gaspacho – but get there early, because it sells out quickly! Also be sure to try either the Roast Turkey Sandwich (she carves a fresh turkey right there in front of you!) with a little cranberry for good measure, or Karleen’s own Egg Salad sandwich. Honestly, there’s not a bad choice to be made at Uptown Fare, but shhhhh….don’t tell anyone!
Another great spot to dine on a dollar is Sammy’s Bistro, located at 1890 Bonanza Drive. Sammy’s Chef, Sam Harris, is a Park City local and has a long history of working in Park City’s finer restaurants. His goal with this newer addition to the dining scene, was to offer diners a gourmet experience at local’s prices. I can tell you that the Mahi Mahi sandwich is quite tasty. The fish is marinated in honey and lime, grilled, and topped with fresh mango salsa, cabbage, cilantro, tomatillo aioli and served on a bun. There is also a fish taco version of this sandwich, and the Mahi used for this yummy meal is marinated in cumin and lime. Guests can also enjoy Texas style BBQ Shrimp serve alongside coleslaw and corn bread, or a Grilled Romaine Wedge Salad. The menu is simple, but executed well, and there is a little outside area to sit if you like.
If you’re looking for a quick take-away meal to bring back to your vacation rental, and you;re in the mood for some Chinese Food, duck in to A Wok Away, located at 1890 Bonanza Drive, just a few steps away from Sammy’s Bistro. A Wok Away is the only exclusively Chinese restaurant in the Old Town district of Park City, and is super quick, and super affordable. Both delivery and take-out are available, and they do have a few tables for you to dine at if you choose to stay. None of their food is cooked using MSG, and they always have lunch combination specials available. One of my favorite dishes for dinner is the Mapo Tofu – a spicy, saucy dish loaded with tofu and served over rice. Their Lemon Chicken is delicious as well, and you can never go wrong with Pan Fried Noodles! Grab your chopsticks and enjoy some authentic Chinese cuisine on the cheap at A Wok Away!
