Reliving the experience of talking dry-rub and brisket with Food Network's Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, the owner of Pat's Barbecue marveled to the Salt Lake Tribune, "For hell's sake, for a barbecue place on a dead end street in an old warehouse, to be on national TV . . ." Pat Barber's secret dry-rub lives up to the hype, adding distinctive flavors to chicken, ribs, and pulled pork cooked in a BBQ smoker, which are ably supplemented by traditional side dishes such as cornbread, mashed potatoes, and more meat. Local musicians fill the air with tuneful sounds on Friday and Saturday evening, and a rotating menu of daily specials provide variety, including Friday's offering of Burnt Ends, a house specialty made from tender brisket tips.

Custom Catering can trace its roots all the way back to the basement of a modest mercantile store in 1830s England, where William Startup toiled at candy making while dreaming of a prosperous life in America. Though these dreams were derailed when his candy found two high-profile fans—the King and Queen of England—his son was still determined to make it to America. He brought his culinary knowledge to Philadelphia, and since then the trade has passed down through five generations. Today, William's great-great-great-grandsons Hyrum and Joseph Knapp operate Custom Catering, using food-preparation experience and supervisory skills they have gleaned since they were children napping in pasta pots.

The ambitions of Custom Catering range from grandiose to minute; the company has catered entire movie sets, and it’s also helped brides to choose which color organza bow to wrap around chair covers or underdressed ice sculptures. The company’s extensive menus enable customers to plan a multi-course meal or pick and choose various courses when they only need limited service.

When Roula Karahalios came to the United States from the Greek island of Crete, she brought with her a rolodex of recipes that she now uses in the kitchen at Roula’s Cafe. Roula and her son Nectarios skewer chicken souvlaki and slice lamb for gyros. An array of meats, cheeses, and veggies as well as marble rye bread and croissants come together in custom deli sandwiches. Patrons also get to choose what fillings go into omelets and breakfast sandwiches, but not whether John Goodman plays them in a made-for-TV movie. Inside the café, a painted owl overlooks blue-topped tables from the branch of an oversized tree mural on one wall, and black-and-white checkered flooring gives the eatery the vibe of an old-timey diner.
