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.
