Monday Moments - It's a Utah Thing...and it's treating one of you to a free lunch!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about tradition. Maybe it’s the holiday season or maybe it’s being a new mom, wanting to create and establish tradition with my young little family. I grew up with wonderful traditions; many of which revolved around food. Decorating sugar cookies on Christmas Eve, devouring angel food cake every year on my birthday, walking with my cousins to get iron-ports from the soda fountain by my grandma’s house, or the drive-through in Moab that made the best toquitos. Whether we realize it or not, food instills tradition, little flavor bursts of wonderful memories.

For many people growing up or going to school in Utah County there’s one place that is certainly a tradition. Burger Supreme is more than just a burger joint. It’s a family tradition; owned by a local Utah County Family, it’s been a staple of the valley for as long as I can remember.

What’s even better…the food. The burgers are thick and juicy. Made from fresh, never frozen beef, delivered daily. They’re charbroiled, which in my opinion is the only way to have a hamburger, then piled high with fresh toppings. Their fries are thick, but not too thick, crispy and like heaven dipped in their original recipe fry sauce. But it doesn’t end there. Variety is always key for my family. We love options, and Burgers Supreme delivers. From the Guacamole Burger, Western Burger, Gyro Sandwich, Teriyaki Chicken, salads, shakes…you name it, the options are plenty. They have also started catering. This last summer we were lucky enough to have them cater our huge neighborhood 4th of July bash! Deliciousness delivered!

Now many may be surprised, a foodie like me, loving a burger joint, but it’s true. I can make just about any kind of burger at home on the grill, and they’re good, but there’s just something about a good burger from local spot. Maybe it’s a night off from cooking, maybe it’s the easy clean up, or maybe it’s just a delicious tradition. Burger Supreme reins supreme in our family!

Recently we’ve had several popular chain burger joints move into the valley and the one resonating comment I hear from people is…”it’s a California thing…it’s an East Coast thing...” Well Burger Supreme…it’s a Utah thing and in my opinion when it comes to flavor and quality it out does all the rest.

If your mouth is watering, like mine is…never fear! We are lucky enough to be friends with the owners and they have given me a $10 Burger Supreme gift certificate to give away to one lucky reader. Leave me a post with why you love Burger Supreme or why you’d love to give it a try and I’ll draw one winner on Monday, December 7th. Just think about it…some Christmas shopping, a yummy lunch or dinner at Burger Supreme…perfect little date!

Burgers Supreme is a solid pillar in the local burger market. You are so right that variety trumps. The freshness and consistency have me converted!

Thanks for the great post. Great insight as always.

We haven't had burger supreme FOREVER! But we are huge burger fans. Whenever burger commercials come on Brad and I look at each other and say "that looks so GOOD!" Glad to hear that you like angel food cake on your birthday too. That is my request every year.

We love Burger Supreme cause its feaking yummy. I go there to consume more than my daily alloted calories on the bacon cheesburger:) Plus, Dave thinks Abdel (a manager) is an awesome guy:) AND they have freaking good hot dogs that my kids love. AND the green seats are so retro and squishy:)

In my area, there are 5 fast food burger joints within one block...it feels like too much ~

Family owned spots seem to be a thing of the past; I would love to try Burger Supreme!

Mmmmm! char-broiled is definitely the best. With any luck you'll draw my name :)

My husband and I LOVE Burgers Supreme! WE both think they have the best hamburgers and fries in the entire state. If we could, we would eat there every day. :)

Hum what to say... In college I single handedly got MANY friends, roommates, and dates going there regularly. I wrote about it in a marketing class and the professor went and tried BS. I remember for $2.25ish I could get the then $.99 hamburger after 8pm with med fries. It’s embarrassing to admit but Jorge there knew me and knew my order AND when we took pregnancy classes at the hospital for Sadie, he was there with his wife....
