Would You Like Some Mormon History with Your Steak?

My friend Wix was in town last night, so we met up for dinner. He brought along a friend from Cincinnati, who was visiting Utah for the first time. I am assuming that Wix wanted to give the friend a bit of Utah culture, as we ate at Porter's Place in Lehi - a restaurant dedicated to the memory of Joseph Smith's sharp-shooting bodyguard Porter Rockwell. The highlight was a menu that included items such as the "Brigham Burger," the "Prophet Plate," and the "Orson Hyde." It was worth the trip for the novelty and for the Ironport old-fashioned cream soda which Wix accurately described as "the size of your head."
