Fatboy Phillies - Philly cheesesteak (Redneck Food Rambles)
Fatboy Phillies – Philly cheesesteak (Redneck Food Rambles)

This month, a little more than twenty or so reviews of restaurants, food trucks, cafes and more that you need to know about around town. Particularly hot right now? Murray’s Fatboy Phillies seems to be the word on everyone’s lips, or should that be cheesesteaks in bellies.

This modest newcomer on State Street is serving up some hefty looking cheesesteak sandwiches and most recently doubled down on their authenticity claims by importing authentic Amoroso rolls from back East. Lets just not get started on the American vs Whizz vs provolone debate…

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you!  I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune.  I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.

I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade.   I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand.  I ate all the pies.
