Top 4 Places in Ogden, Utah

We recently had a little trip up to Ogden, Utah to go through the open house of the newly remodeled LDS temple, which is just stunning! If you haven’t been you should go and walk through it. What a lovely transformation. Anyway, we ended up going back to visit the best venues in Ogden and while I didn’t have to post about any of it (the hotel we stayed at just wanted places to recommend to travelers.) I just have to tell you about them because it was so fun we are actually dying to go back to Ogden. So, in no particular order, Top 4 Places in Ogden, Utah.

Top 4 places in Ogden, Utah

1. Sonora Grill~So far this is the best Mexican we have ever had, and we have had a lot, like a lot. It wasn’t just about the great recipes, but the atmosphere, the staff, the fresh ingredients and then yes, the recipes really are incredible. Want to know our favorites?

*Guacamole Trio (can’t wait to hear which is your favorite.)

*Carnitas Nortenas (literally the best I’ve ever had and I order them everywhere)

*Chile Rellenos (mercy)

*Chicken Chilaquiles

4. Treehouse Museum~ Oh, how we hope that one day we get to visit again. We only had about 40 minutes before closing so we really had to hurry, but WOW!! This place is just darling! The different areas are so well done that I was just as entertained as the kids which let’s be honest, many children’s attractions aren’t as intriguing for the parents, but we just love this place!

  • I’m so glad you gave this review. I grew up in Ogden and love it!! But it has gotten a bad rap the last 20 years. O-Town, as we lovingly call it now, has a great vibe!! They did a bang up job for the open house, and showcased a great city!! My friend owns the Sonora Grill and I can’t wait to tell her about your review. They’re a great young family that has embraced the whole Ogden living. They bought a home right in the heart of downtown Ogden, and I’m so impressed what is going on in those neighborhoods that used to be so scary when I was a kid!! Mel G. got me following you. She talks so highly of you:) I have another suggestion for dining in Ogden. Lee’s Mongolian BBQ. It’s a hole in the wall, but we absolutely LOVE it! There’s also a great Japanese restaurant called Tamari that is awesome!! Reservations only there. They can only seat about 12 at a time, and it’s a cute husband and wife who run the whole thing. Huge sushi rolls that are delicious, and Tempura Udon that is heavenly!! xoxo

  • I seriously love Ogden! Sometimes it gets a bad rap, but it’s not as bad as people think. I’ve been to iFly, but have yet to check out the other places on your list. I’m also a big fan of the East Side Diner and Ruan Thai– maybe not super fancy, but gems nonetheless! Thanks for highlighting some of Ogden’s charm!
