Sunday isn’t the dining desert it once was in SLC. There are now many restaurants open Sunday in Salt Lake City, and the following are some the best. Sundays in SLC can be so much more than a boring old roast dinner.
Alamexo – Elevated South of the border cuisine in the heart of Salt Lake City. Chef and owner Matt Lake crafts refined Mexican cuisine seven days a week – and gets bonus points for serving up Sunday supper too. You can read more about the restaurant and the chef’s ethos here on our 2016 review of Alamexo.
Alamexo is open on Sunday 5-10 p.m.

CY Noodles House – Create your own noodles is the concept at this South Salt Lake restaurant. Choosing from a variety of noodles, ingredients and preparations diners can craft the noodle bowl of the dreams. The true gem at this Chinese restaurant though is the lip smacking Sichuan cuisine, packed with fire and tingle. Don’t miss the spicy boiled fish, deep fried tofu, sesame balls and much more.

Head down to the bustling Sugarhouse neighborhood and you will find one of SLC’s best spots to grab a bite and watch the big game. The popular Fiddler’s Elbow has been serving up beers, burgers and wings since 1996, and shows no sign of letting up.
With more TV’s than you can shake a foam finger at and over thirty beers on tap (there’s a full bar too) Fiddler’s Elbow is the perfect Sunday hangout, noon or night. The menu is no slouch either, prices are fair and dishes run the gamut of perfect pub grub such as their ‘famous’ Garlic Burger ($8.95) or Beer Batter Halibut ‘n’ Chips ($15.95).
Ho Mei BBQ

Seven days a week and late into the night – you will find Ho Mei BBQ serving up an array of authentic Chinese cuisine. Those with adventurous palates and appetites will be rewarded by the depth of the Cantonese leaning menu. Among the 200+ dishes you will find treasures like Chicken Fried Rice with funky morsels of salted fish and a wonderful Ma Po Tofu dish with silky tofu, umami rich pork and fiery heat. Pictured dish: Tri-shredded meat, stir fried udon.

Hankering for a taste of South East Asia on a Sunday, you’re in luck – one of SLC’s finest Vietnamese restaurants is open. Indochine Vietnamese Bistro in the University area of SLC can make a perfect change of pace from the typical boring Sunday.
Some specialties include Sizzling Crepe ($14.95) – a turmeric and coconut milk infused batter, stuffed with shrimp, pork and beansprouts or the mouth watering Bò Xào Så – Indochine’s chile spiced flank steak ($12.95). In addition to the great Vietnamese cooking, there’s a full bar too, so enjoy a house cocktail or cold Squatter’s Pale Ale to tame your dish’s spice!

Open virtually every single day of the year (seriously, stop by on Christmas or Thanksgiving) including Sunday in Salt Lake City, Kathmandu is our favorite Indian and Nepalese restaurant in town.
Spice up your Sunday with their first rate tandoori selections or maybe choose one of their Nepalese house specials such as Chicken Chilli ($14.95, deep fried boneless chicken breast, marinated with yogurt, corn flour, chickpeas flour, eggs and soy sauce, and spices) or Lamb Momo ($13.95, steamed lamb dumplings spiced with garlic, ginger, onion, spices).
Everything tastes even better washed down with an ice cold Taj Mahal beer ($7.50) too – or if you need an early Sunday night, Kathmandu’s creamy lassi drinks are also worthy of sampling. Pictured dish: garlic curry.

Some might find Lucky 13’s ‘World’s Best Burger’ award somewhat hyperbolic, but we dare you to find a better burger anywhere. The fact that you can chow down on Lucky 13’s drool worthy creations on a Sunday, till midnight, surrounded by a dizzying array of beers and whiskeys – well that’s just a bonus.
Prices start at $6.50 for the basic burger at Lucky 13 and wend their way upwards as proceedings get more elaborate. Bacon lovers will want to sample The Pigpen ($10.00, house-smoked bacon, grilled black forest ham, sauteed onions, cheddar and swiss cheese and lucky 13 sauce) and particularly hungry folks should check out The Big Benny ($17.00, a foot tall burger with bacon, ham, cheese, sauteed onions, Lucky 13 sauce and 28oz of fresh ground chuck), featured on Man Versus Food. Pictured dish: burger and fries.
Open on Sunday noon through 8pm

Sugarhouse BBQ in, um, well, Sugarhouse(!) has been delighting locals for decades. In 2013 the restaurant moved digs to a newer, more spacious outlet, that also offers a handy drive through window for ‘to go’ orders. The restaurant’s staples of Memphis style barbecue are also back by a full bar too should you want to order up a cocktail or local craft beer while chowing down on your Sunday BBQ. Pictured dish: smoked turkey breast salad.
