Ruth's Diner

A local favorite since 1930, Ruth's Diner is located up the beautiful and historic Emigration Canyon. In the early days it was located in downtown Salt Lake City, until 1949 when Ruth bought a Salt Lake trolley car and moved it up Emigration Canyon, where it still sits today. Enjoy dining on the patio in the warmer months, and an inside dining room when the weather is a bit colder. The breakfast menu consists of classic Ruth favorites such as breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, salmon benedict, corned beef hash, omelettes, and even vegan selections. Lighter selections include pecan cinnamon roll french toast, buttermilk pancakes, granola and banana walnut french toast. Beginning in April and ending in October, you can enjoy music while you dine. Ruth's Diner was recently featured on the national television show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives".
