Mountain Mike's

Mountain Mike's
3785 W South Jordan Parkway
South Jordan, UT 84095

So, last Thursday night, I had the honor of participating in a 'Blogger's night"! This one was at Mountain Mike's in South Jordan, Utah! Here are a couple of things that you see when you walk in...
Menu board
 Mountain Mike's was established in 1978 and you can read more about them on this page! They do have more than 150 locations in California, Nevada, Oregon and Utah. I am pretty sure the only location in Utah is this one in South Jordan! I remember when it first opened but can't believe that was 7 years ago! We were treated to a buffet that night for our honest opinion of the food and everything...
here is what to expect on the buffet line:
They have an arcade, but we didn't have any quarters, so that will have to wait until next time:  

Here is a sampling of what we tried that night, pasta, salad, and pizzas, including a dessert pizza:

The pasta was very tasty, even the meatballs, and I'm not a meatball kind of girl... The salad bar had a very good selection of items and dressings even toppings and sides like croutons and crackers! Although the cheesy garlic sticks are among the best I've ever had and the best thing to go with salad, anytime! The main event is the pizza...a great variety, every trip back to the buffet line had a new line up of pizzas to try! They were all delicious with yummy non greasy crust! The dessert pizza is a MUST eat to finish off the meal...yummy sweetness!

They have a nice dining area AND a private room for parties, which is where we chose to sit, you can see my mom in the corner,where we sat and also a shot of the view from that room, nice, right?

 Mom and I wanted to try it 7 years ago, but life happens! I love me some good pizza, so I was very excited to be trying something new to me! So, last week, we were excited to try it out....and we liked it A LOT!! We will definitely be back...and in the meantime, join their Coupon Club by clicking below!
This blogger event was to kick-off their 7 year celebration! They are having a "Birthday special": Customers that buy any medium or large pizza can get another one for just $7.
Only available until 31 Aug 2014. 

Another great thing, they have TVs, so another great spot to go watch the big game! So, hurry in and take advantage of this great special, or try the buffet, either way, I highly recommend getting there now, eat and enjoy! Oh, and, take a moment to go like them on Facebook, too!

HO Ho Hostess

Most of us love our sweet treats! What is your favorite? For me, there are too many to narrow it down, but along the lines of Hostess treats, I love my Ho-Ho's! However, I do find the Hostess brand to be quite over priced! What do you think?

Then, Hostess temporarily died and even when it was resurrected, which I said would happen from Day 1, I wasn't sure if the Ho-Ho would make the comeback! In the meantime, I tried Lil Debbie brand and Great Value (Walmart) brand Swiss Rolls. We were using these other brands before the death of Hostess, mostly because of cost value. More on that below...read on....have you tried these other brands of the swiss roll? If so, which do you like best and why? Here is my review of our taste comparison...
Great Value (Walmart), 12 pack, twin wrapped, $1.38 a box
Lil Debbie, 12 pack, twin wrapped, $1.70 a box
Hostess, 10 pack, individually wrapped, $3.48 a box

Great Value (Walmart) brand tastes sweet and are obviously the best value for your money. Lil Debbie is the next best value for your money, and tastes ok, but not as sweet as those from Walmart! Hostess, has the most chocolaty taste of all even though it wasn't as sweet as the Great Value brand! So, in the end, I think I really do like the taste of the Hostess brand the best, however, I will NOT pay that price for it! Therefore, the Great Value brand from Walmart wins out and will continue to be our go to treat for a swiss roll/Ho-Ho style treat!
