BEST GREEK Readers’ Choice
Aristo’s
Located a stone’s throw from the University of Utah, this upscale Greek bistro boasts a sunny patio, a full bar with an extensive Greek wine list and kick-ass appetizers (“mezedakia”). Perhaps it’s the smelts or Greek classics like moussaka, pastitsio, souvlaki and gyros that readers love, or the pine-tasting retsina wine to wash it all down with. Or maybe it’s triangles of succulent baklava or cups of rice pudding made by the owner’s mom. What sets Aristo’s apart from the others—in addition to white linen tablecloths—are skylights that, on a sunny day, can fool you into thinking the Mediterranean is lapping outside the front door.224 S. 1300 East, 581-0888, AristosGreekRestaurant.com

BEST OGDEN MEXICAN RESTAURANT
El Matador Restaurante/Cantina
After more than 40 years of business in Ogden, you could easily say that the folks here were blessed with great Mexican food long before most Salt Lakers knew a burrito from a baked potato. Started by the Hasratian family, El Matador is still family run, and the shredded cheese melted into warm salsa still keeps Ogdenites coming back for more.2564 Ogden Ave., Ogden, 801-393-3151

BEST CHURRASCARIA
Rodizio Grill
This is a carnivore’s dream. Just order the “Full Rodizio,” sit back, loosen your belt buckle, and prepare to feast on a nonstop barrage of grilled meats, poultry, seafood, veggies and fruit. But pace yourself. The guys in the gaucho outfits will keep coming to your table with skewers of grilled stuff until you say “uncle!” Highlights of this Brazilian-style churrascaria include lombo (marinated pork loin), picanha (top sirloin), corac%uFFFDo (bacon-wrapped turkey breast, grilled chicken hearts) and luscious abacaxi—glazed, grilled pineapple slices. Muito bem!600 S. 700 East, Trolley Square, 220-0500, RodizioGrill.com
