Isn’t the name alone enough to visit this place? We went here on New Years Eve while visiting friends in Provo, Utah. This was less than an hour after I picked up food from The Smoking Apple. They love the place and that was enough to say “let’s go!”
Apparently, the place is so popular that you typically wait for over 15 minutes just to order. So much so that they recently expanded into the space next door. It was very quiet on New Years Eve however. This made it nice so that we didn’t have to wait long for this highly recommended food.
Cubby’s has a few salad selections and many sandwich options. On this night, we were not here for a salad. The sandwich menu does have a couple burger options. One of these is the Dragonslayer: Bleu Cheese Burger with Spring Mix Red Onions, Tomatoes, Pickles, Bacon and Buffalo Sauce. Sounds delicious and it was good. It wasn’t however the world’s greatest as I might have hyped it up to be.
Rachel ordered the Rip City Tri-Tip Steak Sandwich: 6 oz. of Dry Rubbed Tri-Tip, Drizzled with Garlic Butter, BBQ Sauce, Caramelized Onions and topped with Smoked Bacon served Cali Style (with Avocado & Cheddar). It looked like a work of art. It tasted that way also. Talk about a home run. Every ingredient was a 10. The steak was very tender and delicious. You won’t go wrong with the Rip City Tri-Tip.
Another item that won’t disappoint you is from the “sides” section of the menu: Bleu Cheese Buffalo Fries. Make sure you have a nice tall glass of ice water when you eat these. They have some real fire to them. Wherever there is fire, there is flavor and these have fire.
Cubby’s is definitely worth the stop. I look forward eating there again soon.
