Park City Budget Restaurants: Eat like a local at these restaurants for anyone on a budget

Park City is famous for its enticing selection of fine dining establishments. What was once a sleepy mountain town is now a world-class resort mecca. Budget restaurants are hard to find, but reasonably priced options do exist to serve the ski bum population.

El Chubasco

This small restaurant in a strip mall in Prospector Square draws locals and visitors alike for the authentic Mexican dishes as well as the salsa bar, with at least ten salsas varying from mild to very hot. Here, you order at the counter, and they quickly bring your meal to the table. The enchiladas are a favorite, as is the creamy chipotle salsa.

Fat Kid Pizza

Locals know it as the best pizza in Park City. This extra thin, New York style pizza comes in a variety of creative styles from The Godfather (mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta, goat cheese, and sun-dried tomatoes) to the Eddie Would Go (Italian sausage and pineapple). Order a pizza for delivery for $20, or you can get it by the slice at the Sidecar Bar for about $4.


Technically it’s a bar, or as they say in Utah “a private club for members”. On Tuesday, it’s locals’ night, where you can get $3 garlic burgers and fish bowls of draft beer. It’s one of the few true dive bars in Park City. Look down the bar and you’ll see a lot of goggle tans, proof that most visitors here are Park City locals.

Davanza’s Pizza

Another great pizza place in town, this restaurant is popular with families visiting Park City. They serve pizza with a thick layer of cheese and lots of toppings. It’s not all pizza, though. There’s something for everyone, from burgers to sandwiches to salads to tacos.

Main Street Deli

In the middle of some of Park City’s most expensive restaurants sits this unassuming little deli. They serve not only the typical deli foods – hearty soups in bread bowls, meatball sandwiches, bagels – but also café favorites like smoothies and breakfast burritos. It’s a great place to stop for a bite while you’re strolling Main Street in Park City.

Nick’s Greek Café

Removed from the activity of Main Street is Nick’s Greek Café, situated in a strip mall near the Park City liquor store. Here you’ll find authentic Greek favorites such as pastitsio, dolmades, and of course gyros. It’s not as fast as Burger King, but the Greek owner will more than likely stop by your table to chat.
