Hires Big H

425 South 700 East, Salt Lake City, UT - (801) 364-4582
Hires menu is a classic drive-in bill of fare: a long list of hamburgers including a “New York H” (garnished with grilled onions), a Danish H (with a slice of ham), a Roquefort H, a Pastrami H, and a Big H, which is garnished with lettuce, tomato, special sauce, and cheese. Plus, of course, root beer, available in sizes that range from Baby to Large.

If you eat inside and order root beer, it will come in a large, frosty mug.  But Hires Big H also makes excellent thick shakes, like this raspberry example, with 16 flavors to choose from.

The Big H burger is a quarter-pounder dressed with lettuce, tomato, American cheese and Hires Big H's own fry sauce.

There are actually three Hires Big H's.  The Salt Lake City location, seen here, is just down the hill from the University of Utah and is hugely popular with students.
