Friday is National Breadstick Day, and Utah County is a great place to celebrate. Whether you like your breadsticks brushed with garlic butter or smothered in cheese, here are seven of our favorite places to snag an extra cut of carbohydrates.
The Brick Oven in Provo has been serving pizza and pasta dishes for more than 60 years -- and they have great breadsticks to eat alongside them.
Their breadsticks come with the restaurant's dipping sauces.
Location: 111 E. 800 North, Provo
Fat Jack’s Pizza
A local favorite in Payson, Fat Jack's dine in and takeout menus are loaded with delicious specialty pizzas and salads. But, the restaurant is known for its breadsticks and cheese sticks.
Their Famous Cheesestix are breadsticks doused in garlicky butter and melty cheese. Dunk these breadsticks into the homemade Creamy Italian dipping sauce and you may just forget to share with the rest of your family.
Want even more kick to those breadsticks? Go for the Western Stix -- Cheesestix topped with bacon, tomatoes, onions and green peppers. And if you're brave, add those jalapeños, too.
Location: 30 S. 100 West, Payson
Firebird Pizza and Pasta
If you're not over your yearly allotment of carbs from the pizza and pasta alone, grab yourself an order of their loaded cheesy bread. Rather than your run-of-the-mill breadsticks topped with cheese, Firebird Pizza's loaded cheesy bread is covered in cheese, topped with bacon and garnished with diced tomatoes.
Location: 340 S. Main St., Pleasant Grove
Hungry Howie's Pizza
At Hungry Howie's, you can snag some Howie Bread -- hot, buttered garlic bread sticks topped with parmesan cheese. They also offer 3-Cheeser Howie Bread, Asiago Howie Bread, Cajun Howie Bread and Cinnamon Howie Bread.
Location: 1549 N. State St. Unit 105, Orem
Lucy’s has breadsticks that are flavored with garlic butter and seasonings and served with Lucy’s delicious marinara dipping sauce. Its Cheesesticks are really garlic breadsticks, but covered in mozzarella — which let's face it, never makes anything worse.
Location: 59 S. State St., Orem
If a person goes to The Pizza Factory and somehow does not order the restaurant’s famous breadtwists, did the visit actually happen?
The breadtwists come one to a stick — in easily tear-able portions. You can get them in two flavors: garlic Parmesan and cinnamon sugar. For a dollar extra you can opt for a dipping sauce, which come in the following flavors: ranch, marinara, alfredo, honey butter, sweet cream and cinnamon.
