Emmett and Ethel’s Old Fashioned Burgers, Shakes and Hot Dogs is a new hamburger restaurant in Lehi, Utah. Located on Lehi main street I had to make sure to visit this new burger joint. I was very excited for this new place and have watched them build the building, install the benches, put up signs and then open the doors.
Now that the doors are open I’m proud to say I ate it. The bad news: it wasn’t worth the wait. I tried their primary cheese burger meal and the entire ordering process was painfully slow. Obviously they are brand new so perhaps they are still working some kinks out but the service was slow, the food was “ok” and the wait between ordering and eating was nearly 20 minutes (and there weren’t that many people in line). There were plenty of staff members but no one in charge.
The fries are heavily seasoned which can be good but the fry sauce is also heavily seasoned and to me, that’s not a good combination. The burger itself was also “ok”. In all honesty there was nothing special about Emmett and Ethel’s but I’m sure their shakes are good. My recommendation is to have dinner some where else and end it with a shake at Emmett and Ethel’s.
Overall Rating: MEDIOCRE (C)
Service Rating: SLOW (20 minutes between ordering and eating)
