There’s something about Spitz that is absolutely addicting. If you are going for the first time, get the Spitz street cart fries and you’ll be hooked. Even if you aren’t going for the first time, go ahead and get them 😉
What we order
Garden Bowl – As much as I love the street cart fries, they feel a little decadent for as often as we dine there. I love to get the Garden Bowl. It isn’t often you can get something uber healthy that tastes so amazingly good. The crispy garbanzos, pepperoncinis, feta, chicken, hummus, and all the veggies…mouth watering!
Doquitos – This is Jared’s pick. I always explain these as the Mediterranean version of Taquitos (and, that’s the description right on the menu. I obviously took it to heart!). These give the Spitz street cart fries a run for their money!
For the kids
We recently tried the kids wrap for $6. While it’s a nice option, we love Jude to have a little more variety for his meals, so we share some food from our plates. You can get an extra portion of meat for $3 or add a side of fried pita strips with hummus to supplement. These pita strips are DIVINE!
It’s also worth noting that if you dine on Tuesdays, kids eat free!
They serve 2.99 draft beers on Saturdays and I adore their sangrias (the red wine sangria is my choice with cinnamon, cardamom, and orange)
When to Go
Friday and Saturday nights get really busy and can make the wait times rougher if you have hungry kids. You order at the register and then the food is brought out to the tables. If there is a long line, you have the wait of both the line and the cooking time. Get there earlier than 6 or Sundays so you have no idea what I’m talking about 😉
- They have 3 locations and I love them all — downtown, Sugarhouse, and Cottonwood
- Limited patio seating at all locales. When the weather is nice, the patio is the way to go.
- I love following Spitz on social media. They run secret specials every once in a while like giving you double the points on their punch card (yep, they have a punch card!) if you follow them on Instagram or Facebook
- Check out the selection of games for all ages to play while you are waiting for your food. Uno, Connect 4, Cards Against Humanity, Hungry Hungry Hippos, and Jenga. I imagine we will take advantage of these even more as Jude gets older.
