You step off the bustling sidewalk of Park City’s Main Street and up to a friendly looking building. It’s a little older with a brick façade and a white fenced balcony bustling with chatting people. Through a set of barn doors, white with red detail, you walk into a 60’s era diner — complete with plaid tablecloths and old-fashioned salt and pepper shakers, silver tops agleam. A plastic covered menu full of heart happy (if not healthy) food fits comfortably in small and big hands alike. While you wait for your food to appear you can read world wisdoms on the walls like “Happiness is a 12 incher” and see who can find the most countries on Red Banjo’s wall of bills. When your order arrives, it oozes cheesy goodness, sub or pizza, and you have fries to fight over. The whole family enjoys a meal of warm food and happy chatter.
Red Banjo is one of Park City’s oldest restaurants and the oldest pizza parlor. They play host to movie goers and skiers alike with food around $10 a plate and entertaining wall décor to keep the whole party talking. They specialize in hand tossed pizzas and, after four generations, they should know how to make them. If pizza isn’t your thing, grab a salad, pasta or sub. They do have gluten free options and all their food pairs well with a cold brewski or glass of wine after a long day on the slopes or streets. Red Banjo is a great option for big families or a western date night. Their second-floor patio overlooks main street and makes a spectacular people-watching perch during the warmer summer months. They do take reservations for parties larger than 10, but it’s best to grab a seat a little early on busy nights. Be sure to follow them on social media for promotions, specials and more.
