Cheap Eats, Utah-style: Chedda Burger gets its TV moment

I heard through the grapevine, or burgerline in this case, that Cooking Channel’s Cheap Eats is going to be visiting Cheddaburger on the afternoon of October 5.

The SLC food scene is famous again!

In case you need a burger refresher course, Cheddaburger started out as a food truck and added a bricks-and-mortar location.


Chef Nick Watts started driving the Chedda Truck in 2012 and his intention was always to push the boundaries of burgerdom. Sure enough, Cheddaburger is a rebel.

We like to think of burgers as “all-American,” like hot dogs and baseball and Happy Days but Cheddaburger is the bad boy of burgers.


 They serve “burgers with attitude.” The walls of the Portland-plain restaurant are covered in graffiti and the company website address is “cheddawasted.”  although he starts with a pure product: 100 percent Angus beef, no hormones, no antibiotics, no BS. 

Now the primo burgers are ready for prime time.

Note: This is only a rumor.

Cheddaburger, 26 E. 600 South, SLC, 602-865-97
