Huntsville Barbecue Company's pitmasters expertly mix dry-rubbed meats with savory seasonings, slow-smoking each cut to release its full flavor. Inspired by Texans’ rich tradition of picnicking, the menu teems with home-style side dishes such as broccoli slaw and potato salad, which can be enjoyed in a cozy, history-filled setting called Jolly Boy or delivered to lunar hootenannies via the company’s catering department. From Tuesday to Saturday, dine-in visitors can build single-meat meals from classic beef brisket or load Texas-size samplers with five smoked delicacies, such as seasoned half-chickens, spicy sausages, and pork spare ribs.
At the base of a highland ridge overlooking the Ogden Valley, Wolf Creek Utah Golf Course showcases an 18-hole track that is both challenging and charming. Surrounded by rugged vistas of nearby mountains, the course attracts recreational and, since 1990, professional golfers, who compete in the annual Utah Golf Association Championship for bragging rights for the player with the fastest caddy rickshaw. It features water hazards that come into play on 13 holes, as well as doglegs on holes 3, 5, and 12. The ninth hole, rated the course’s most difficult, is a 579-yard straightaway with a narrow, tree-lined fairway and a green that is protected by water in the front, bunkers in the back, and a territorial flagstick that growls at incoming putts.

With its traditional Hawaiian plate lunches, sandwiches, and salads, Hawaiian-owned Pounder's brings a delicious whiff of the Pacific to mostly landlocked north-central Utah. Its simple menu features a carnivorous cornucopia of grilled meaty treats made fresh daily. Pundits of porcine and poultry products can savor the kalua pork, a pile of pulled pork slow-cooked to luau-worthy perfection, and four different chickeny preparations, including chicken katsu, a chicken breast lightly breaded with Japanese panko and served with delectable katsu sauce for dipping. Beefy fare includes the kalbi marinated beef short ribs and the protein-packing Loco Moco, a seasoned hamburger patty smothered in a bedlam of eggs and brown gravy, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
The arctic artisans at Zeppe's Italian Water Ice concoct an innovative menu of frozen delights to satisfy even the most persnickety of sweet teeth.

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
