OPINION: Grabbing grub after graduation

Graduation is right around the corner and one of the most important parts of planning a party is the food. To help out with your celebratory plans, here are five of the best places to eat in Ogden after graduation.

First up, the Union Grill, located on 24th Street, has something for everyone. The menu has a variety of options, including vegetarian dishes.

“It’s just a great place to grab food. The service was top-notch,” Shane Chase, a regular customer, said.

With a welcoming atmosphere, good service and outdoor seating, the Union Grill is a great spot for a post-graduation meal with friends and family.

Another popular local spot is the Sonora Grill, a Mexican restaurant on Kiesel Avenue. The brick walls and exposed beams create a warm, friendly atmosphere, as do the restaurant staff. Though the menu is pretty standard for any Mexican restaurant, customers practically sing their praises to the flavors.

Bailey Butler recently visited Sonora Grill to celebrate with family and friends.

“The food was absolutely delicious, and our server was so kind and went above and beyond,” Butler said.

If you happen to be looking for something a little more laid back, The Pie Pizzeria, located on Harrison Boulevard, is definitely the way to go. There is plenty of seating, including an outdoor patio area for those warmer weather days.

The Pie offers a variety of pizzas, pastas, salads and desserts, including gluten-free and vegan options. If none of the specialty pizzas happen to catch your eye, try the Build-Your-Own to make your own custom pizza.

Not only does The Pie have great food, but customer Jesse Leubner also pointed out the hardworking staff members.

“Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful,” Leubner said.

For those who enjoy a more traditional Italian feeling, Stellas is the perfect place to grab some grub after graduation. Down on 25th Street, Stellas is a bit more expensive, but its charming atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food make the prices worth it. Stellas offers a variety of soups, salads and sandwiches, as well as pizzas and pastas.

“Stellas is outstanding. Every time I visit this restaurant, the service is wonderful and the food is so delicious,” Dylan Mathews, a regular at Stellas, said.

Overall, Stellas is one of the highest-rated restaurants in Ogden.

Finally, the Golden Jade Restaurant on Harrison Boulevard is a great choice for any fan of Chinese food. Though the restaurant itself could be described as quaint or unassuming, the staff members are friendly and service is quick, not to mention the delicious food.

Offering a variety of traditional Chinese dishes, including vegetarian options, Golden Jade was described as “the best Chinese food in Utah,” by customer Cory Anderson.
