For Labor Day my wife and I decided we would like to treat ourselves to a meal out. My wife is somewhat hard to please when it comes to dinning out and so we spent at least 2 hours looking at restaurants and ratings for restaurants in the area. We wanted somewhere that I could have Chicken Fried Steak and where she could have something that looked good to her. After a great deal of searching, we decided on the Blue Plate Diner. We drove all the way across town to reach our destination. When we arrived the place was packed, but there was still one small table available for immediate seating. We were given a menu, but my wife soon discovered that the Blue Plate Fish-n Chips she had seen on the online menu, was not on the menu we were looking at in the restaurant. She ended up ordering the 7 dollar Onion Rings and I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak with Eggs over easy. Keep in mind the reason we chose the Diner is because they offered Chicken Fried Steak. When the waiter brought my order to the table he set in front of me Bacon, Eggs (one over easy and one up), Potatoes and Toast. Not wanting to make a scene, or wait for a new order, I ate what was given me. My food alright but not in line with the ratings we had seen online. The Onion Rings were all together another story. They were cold, they tasted greasy and were way not worth the 7 dollars they cost. My overall impression... Why was this place rated 4 1/2 stars online?
I went here with my boyfriend because we saw that they had won best breakfast in City Weekly for the past decade and wanted to try something new.
They are the type of place that has 4 different employees taking your order, refilling your drink, bringing your food, etc. Usually, I don't mind that kind of atmosphere at all, but the staff here just really wasn't very welcoming. Not rude, just didn't say a word other than to ask what we wanted to order. The food was good, but not great. My boyfriend's potatoes came with chopped onions and peppers but mine did not. His over medium eggs were under cooked, which happens a lot of places.
Would I go back? Sure. Was it the best breakfast in town? Not in my experience.
So delicious. You may have to wait a bit if you go on a Saturday or Sunday morning because they are THAT GOOD. Also, quite loud sometimes. Get the benedict omelette, you won't be disappointed. Very consistent customer service, always refilling coffee, etc. Kid-friendly too. One of my fav places for brunch.
Our breakfast was amazing. Small little joint but very tasty
super good food! Be prepared for a little bit of a wait, definitley worth it though.
Great Diner Food.... – Great diner food...a tad busy, especially on Sunday, but I guess that's a good sign overall!
Good Enough To Eat! – I love this place! The food is wonderful and it offers a lot variety for vegans and vegetarians. The vegan burrito is amazing!
Avoid This Hipster Hangout – As a lot of others have said when you drive by it's fairly busy, so you think it has to be a decent place. Wrong.
The entire place is filled with lame ass hipsters. So many skinny jeans, justin bieber haircuts and elitist attitudes it's unreal. Everyone acts snobby (as hipsters tend to do) and they barely pay attention to you if you don't look exactly like everyone else there.
After we finally got seated in some terrible metal chairs, and had to read a bunch of annoying "BICYCLES ARE ALLOWED ONE FULL LANE TOO!" shirts on waiters, our waitress came over, took our order and said "oh you're sitting in the drip. haha" and then i realize the roof is leaking EVERYWHERE. I'm watching water fall through this disgusting roof into peoples food and no one is noticing, and its just soaking my jacket. And it's a joke to them. "lol, better scoot over a foot so you don't continue to get wet!"
How about "lol fix your roof, bitch." Food was average, everyone was annoying and snobby.
Suck it, Blue Plate Diner.
Vegan Friendly with Great Service and Atmosphere! – Being a vegan in Salt Lake City can be tough, so I love this place! Great food and awesome service. The server even sat down and pointed out some of the vegan options on the menu! I really enjoy the cozy atmosphere, too. It's very laid back and I feel relaxed there, Love, love, love it!
MY FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT IN SLC! – Amazing food and service! Everyone who works there is so interesting and unique. The food is simply amazing, which is a breath of fresh air for me since i am a vegetarian. Cute atmosphere, inexpensive prices, big portions, and super good food. Def eat here if you live or are visiting SLC.
