Is there heaven on earth? Yes, it's called Hell's Backbone Grill. The word grill may throw you off as it's really more high class in my opinion. I have been there four times now and each time has exceeded my expectations. The service is phenomenal (shout out to Pat and Nate!), the food is divine, and the location can't be beat. Sitting in at their outside table for breakfast/brunch is nice, inside is beautiful, and out on the patio is also lovely. Keep an eye out for Jezebel, the adorable and friendly cat. I have eaten the bison (amazing!! but a temporary entree), the Blaker Standard (get 1/2 beans, 1/2 rice), the shirred eggs (I recommend the tortilla w them), the meatloaf (not my favorite, but still great. Use with the She-Devil sauce), and many appetizers. Get as many apps as poss! If I could eat here every day, I would.
You must stop here if in the Boulder Town vicinity. This is one of my favorite restaurants ever. Beyond quality. Excellent, gracious service. Anyone with dietary issues can be happy here. Herbs and edible flowers abound around the restaurant, and are utilized heavily in the dishes. Ask for directions to their farm...it's very cool to visit and see the chickens frolicking and the crops growing in such a beautiful setting. Meats are organic and local. Vegetarian and vegan meals are delectable. Menu is seasonal. Mixed drinks are amazing. That strawberry daiquiri I had was beyond incredible...made with quality rum and little, juicy berries straight from their farm. This is the place I dream about when I'm hiking those last two grueling miles down a hot trail.
I totally concur with the many commentors saying this place would thrive in any big city. The difficulty with that, though, would be the loss of such wonderfully organic, locally sourced and seasonal produce. When I read Michael W's review (from New Jersey) I couldn't stop myself from thinking "what in ignorant, bigoted snob!" The restaurant is excellent for Utah, but not in a class with bigger cities and international fare? What odious tripe. I've traveled the world (literally millions of airline miles) and done business in every major US City. Hell's Backbone Grill, I believe, would be a standout anywhere.
