This Little Shop In Utah Makes The Best Sandwich In The State
Sandwiches are the perfect food: portable, customizable and downright delicious. Utah certainly has
plenty of great spots for a sandwich, but recently Thrillist.com named Moochie’s Meatballs the best in Utah. We couldn’t agree more!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Moochie's Meatballs opened its first location in downtown Salt Lake City in 2003, and it's been serving up the best meatball sandwiches in the state ever since. The original location is at 232 E. 800 S. in Salt Lake City.
You'll find the other two locations at 7725 S. State Street in Midvale, and 380 N. 850 E. in Lehi.
This place is both no-frills and charming. It's located in a tiny, old building, but they've left some of the brick exposed and it's clean and comfortable. Moochie's also bought the little old house next door, and it contains restrooms and more seating.
There's often a line out the door, but the staff is pretty efficient and it goes fast. Don't let the line scare you...it's worth the wait.
The meatball sub is the star of the show here. The meatballs are handmade right in the kitchen, and they're seasoned to perfection. Then, they're topped with a secret-recipe marinara sauce and some provolone cheese.
You're gonna get messy with this one, so grab plenty of napkins. Don't try to get one of these to share because no one in their right mind shares a Moochie's meatball sandwich. That baby crying in the background can back me up on this one.
If somehow you get tired of meatball sandwiches, try the Philly cheesesteak. It will melt in your mouth.
Top your sandwich with a plethora of peppers.
Grab a bottle of fry sauce, and another of Jumpin Jalapeno Sauce - you're gonna want the first for the fries, and the second for the sandwich.
They have Birch Beer on tap, too! For the uninitiated, this is similar to root beer, and it's super tasty.
When the weather's nice, you can sit on the patio and enjoy your messy (but sooo delicious) sandwich.
Visit Moochie's Meatballs downtown location seven days a week, from 10:30 AM to 8:30 PM.
For the hours of the other two locations, or to check out the full menu, visit
