Ogden >Utah Noodle Parlor
I work at Utah Noodle. I happen to work at Utah nooodle so sorry to tell you we don't even have a combo that expensive our most expensive combo is 16$ and it comes with more than enough food to feed two people. I have worked at timbermine and other resteraunts in Ogden and happen to think utah noodle's kitchen is a lot cleaner and more organized than the other places I've worked at. But it is true we are kinda pricey so if your cheap don't waste your time. Us waitresses work hard for our money and don't need to hear people complain about the prices. If you dont like it its your opinion keep it to yourself. We do have alot of people that come in at least once a week and they love the food and the enviorment i say if youv'e never been there at least try it.
an old family favorite.
Up front I have to state that I can't imagine others enjoying this place as much as those of us that either A) grew up on this place or B) were forced (ie. marriage, parents, small firearms) into eating here regularly.
I know the place is kind of a hole, the waitress outfits are clearly 1950's design fashion, the service is so-so, the cheerfulness of the staff is dismal and the price is way too high. But for all the negative. . . let me say that this place is a staple establishment in Ogden.
I've going for over 30 years. My mother, who moved out of State nearly 20 years ago still craves Uncle Leo's #1 combo and wants to go each time she visits. And while the bad things do exist and are substantial enough to drive me away from other eateries, this place sends me to the freakin' moon. From the guy in the hallway door that is mashing the shrimp, to Uncle Leo hanging out in a wife beater in the kitchen, to the massive breading around a teeny-tiny shrimp to the neon glowing signage on Washington Blvd. This place is absolutely iconic. I realize this review will likely drive more people away than entice, but for those few of you out there that are looking for a "unique, unlike the other guy" spot, this is it. Enjoy!
Horrible, horrible, horrible.
My husband and I went to Uncle's Leo's, given the previous positive ratings and the general absence of noodle parlors in Ogden - this being the only one. We went. The menu was overpriced ($5 for a side of tomatoes). I paid over $18 for a combination of two fried shrimp that was a soggy mess of fried batter that lost the miniscule in comparison enclosed shrimp, fried rice that was bland and undercooked, and pork noodles that were an uninventive use of sparse ingredients-and not worth the drive it took to get there.
This restaurant was a major disappointment. In comparison to the numerous noodle parlors in neighboring cities, Uncle Leo's doesn't measure up. Don't waste your money.
