Now now, SLC has perhaps the best mexican restaurant in North America (and that includes Mexico):  the Red Iguana.

Yes, you are right. Lone Star is good, too.

Buck T-4, is closer to Big Sky than Bozeman, but it has some of the best food going in that entire area!

320 Ranch just south past Bucks T that has a prime rib buffet once a week that's quite a deal.  Starts up on Jan. 6.

 

The Mint in Belgrade is very good.  Since 1904.

This ^

 

Hard to believe the best in the country is in SLC.

 

For a killer sandwich - Caputo's near Pioneer Park.

The Iguana is DAMN good, if you go be sure to try the mole' sampler.

I still give it 2nd Place; IMO the Frontera Grill/Topolobampo in Chicago is better. But there ain't no shame in gettin' beat by a Master: Rick Bayless is a world-class chef.

Being the best restaurant in SLC is like being a one legged guy in an ass kicking contest.  I know that doesn't make sense, I just wanted to say it.  But you get my point.

Might be helpful if you give more specifics of what you like to eat, at least for Ogden. It's not exactly a big dining destination, so nothing really comes to mind as "best" in town. I could probably point you in the right direction for some specific restaurant types, though. 

 

Since you mentioned BBQ, Huntsville BBQ is my favorite in the Ogden area. Huntsville is in the valley below Snowbasin. I believe it's owned by a Texan, and it has a few chairlift booths, which you gotta love on a ski trip. Good BBQ, of course, too. It's right near the Shooting Star Saloon, the oldest bar in UT, which is also worth a stop. 

 

Agree on Red Iguana and Caputo's for SLC.

Too bad.  The Red Iguana made Gourmet's ranking of best restaurants in America several times (when Gourmet was still published...)

Greek - I like University Broiler near Weber State, especially the beef ribs. I've only ever done take-out, so not sure what the atmosphere is like. The Athenian downtown is another good option. 

 

Halibut - There used to be a Halibut House in the north of town, but that's Daddy D's now - great for artery-clogging food like donut burgers, not great for halibut. Honestly, I wouldn't really recommend coming to UT, especially Ogden, and eating seafood. Market Street grill has good fish, if you must, but UT really isn't the place for good seafood. 

 

I'm not even sure if Ogden has a Vietnamese place, but Lee's Mongolian BBQ is good, and Chopstix and Wing Wah are good for Chinese - the combo dinners have a lot of food. 

 

UT doesn't have much of a reputation for food, but the burgers are good (especially the pastrami ones), the beef and lamb are good, and Mexican and Greek are probably the ethnic foods that it does best.

This.

 

Even with modern technology and air freight, the halibut will suffer.

 

I would think Anchorage could be an amazing place to have halibut, but I live in San Diego County and we get some pretty fantastic halibut from the Coronado Islands.  I will readily admit to being picky about seafood, as an angler of nearly 30 years.  I think it's best enjoyed as near to its point of origin as possible.

 

As far as restaurants in Ogden, though, we've enjoyed the Timbermine for a good steak.  I ate at Rovali's last February, which is on 25th Street - very good Italian.  And like JoeUT, we are partial to Wing Wah for Chinese.  Ogden is far less cosmopolitan than SLC when it comes to restaurants, and if you want trendy, just go to Park City.

Crown and the Iguana are musts for SLC.  The Frontera restaurants in Chicago are kind of a different match to RI ,IMHO.  For JAC - Osteria in the village never seems to disappoint.
