For over 50 years now, Sill's has attracted a cadre of regulars who are served by a staff of professional waitresses in an interactive daily encounter that is the spirit of Layton. Good eats include classic Utah scones, jumbo cinnamon rolls, and hot beef sandwiches.
This humble place is a good opportunity to enjoy Navajo tacos, the sort of melting-pot, mix-n-match dish that characterizes our nation's cuisine at its most exuberant: Mexican, New Mexican, and Utahan with a measure of fast-food brio. On Saturday, Navajo mutton stew is featured.
Hires menu is a classic drive-in bill of fare: a long list of hamburgers including a “New York H” (garnished with grilled onions), a Danish H (with a slice of ham), a Roquefort H, a Pastrami H, and a Big H, which is garnished with lettuce, tomato, special sauce, and cheese. Plus, of course, root beer, available in sizes that range from Baby to Large.
Mom’s offers a full menu, but breakfast is best, for that is when the scones are fresh and hot. The scone is a Utah specialty similar to New Mexican sopaipillas and to the Indian fry breads served at roadside stands throughout the southwest, but generally big enough and weighty enough to be a nice little meal all by itself.
