Garage on Beck has tasty food, and good tunes

Good Things Utah

Garage on Beck is a former auto repair shop established in 1947, that has now transformed into a laid-back roadhouse! They’ve spent the last 11 years serving up amazing comfort food, offering an aesthetic you can’t find anywhere else in SLC. Located 5 minutes north of downtown SLC surrounded by the refinery on State Highway 89, also known as Beck Street. 

Offering a killer kitchen menu, great cocktails, and an awesome patio to hear rockin’ live music. Garage on Beck boasts the friendliest staff, and with one of the most diverse clienteles in town, you never know who you’ll find soaking up the sun on the patio!

A few years back, a fire tore through the building and gutted most of what was originally built, but they came roaring back with a renewed spirit and, returned to their old glory!

The bar is open 365 days a year, 11 am to 1 am during the week, and 10:30 am to 1 am on the weekends. The kitchen is open from 11 am to 11 pm weekdays, and 10:30 am to 11 pm on weekends.

There’s a great brunch menu Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 am to 3 pm, $1.50 tacos every Tuesday after 5, and live music every weekend Friday through Sunday nights! A 21+ establishment.
