Johnny Utah's Country Fun in Connecticut

Social Media Promotion : Sponsored          

Two Step over the Threshold to Johnny Utah's in SoNo

In the township known as South Norwalk or SoNo for short, is a community of small shops, boutiques, and some of Fairfield county's best restaurants.

We finally were able to make it up to one we've been waiting to try for what seems like forever, Johnny Utah's on Washington Street in South Norwalk.

Why have we been so anxious to try this place?

How about it's a country-western inspired destination that I knew my husband (aka the cowboy) would love - and it serves great Americana pub food with a fun flair that I knew I would adore!

How country-western is it? Try a mechanical bull, a beer can flag wall, deer antler chandeliers, and cowhide covered chairs and booths! And country line dancing on Friday nights!

What? A bucking bronco is not your thing?

How about a swing over the back bar on your way to the outhouse instead?

What ever your thing, Johnny Utah's is a fun destination to grab some great bar grub and have a good time.  Operated by the same management group who oversee Stamford's popular Sign of the Whale at Harbor Point, Johnny Utah’s is a one-of-a-kind social hybrid which embraces its inner Blake Shelton, wrapped in Cowboy Boots, Old No. 7 Jack Daniels Sippin' Whiskey,  Respectable BBQ, Burgers and Brews.

Here's a snapshot pictorial of some of the items we sampled on our visit.

And we really had some fun with Johnny Utah's over the top chicken wings prepared every which way! lightly dusted and deep fried and sauced up, Guinness, Sriracha, house spicy, teriyaki, or even smothered with peanut butter and jelly and served with a Fluff dipping sauce. You name it! They make it!

Burgers at Johnny Utah's in South Norwalk

The true stars of the show that night were the 10 ounce grass fed, certified all natural beef burgers in every shape and form that are available. This juicy, all natural, naked burger can be topped with any number of saucy, cheesy, fried, cold, hot, or even healthy additions. Because a fried egg is considered healthy, right???

Dessert Milkshakes at Johnny Utah's

Believe it or not after all that beef we saved some room for dessert. This dessert came more in the liquid form as in some decadent summer milkshakes. Flavors include Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake topped with Hershey's chocolate bar, Reese’s peanut butter cups, whipped cream and roasted marshmallows, Cookies & Cream Milkshake topped with cookie crisp, whipped cream and Oreos, Cherry Milkshake blended with skittles, rimmed with vanilla frosting and various candies, topped with whipped cream, skittle shavings, a cherry pop-tart and cherry pie, Blueberry Milkshake rimmed and topped with vanilla frosting blueberries, blueberry muffins and whipped cream, Vanilla Milkshake blended with bits of bacon topped with bacon, whipped cream and French fries. (well, maybe we should have tried that one for dinner instead!)

So, embrace your inner Johnny Cash or Brad Paisley or Patsy Cline or Miranda Lambert and head on down to Johnny Utah's for some country western fun and grub!

And, best of all, it's cowboy approved!
