This wonderful place has closed down. 6/10/2009

They have closed down. I believe it was around mid-April. I loved, loved, loved their food. It's rather sad, cause this was the only place in town where you could get original soups that were high quality. more

Perfect Soup 3/17/2009

I love big city soup. i can't get there enough though.. i miss the old location on mainstreet. The thai tofu noodle is my favorite. The only thing I suggest is lowering the price and then charging for bread & cheese slice option. Pros: thai tofu noodle, vegan options, location Cons: sometimes parking can be difficult more

Best soup in Utah - never had better! 2/3/2008

Prices are a little higher but worth it! I've never had such good soup. Whenever there's a special occasion or we feel like splurging, we go to Big City Soup - lots of choices and DELICIOUS! Pros: Amazing soup, fast service, friendly people Cons: little pricey more

Okay food, good service, ugly atmosphere. 11/28/2006

I was pretty hopeful with this place since a friend recommended it. Unfortunately, it was quite disappointing. First the good; The women behind the counter were quite friendly and answered my questions politely. The soup was pretty good, better than some soup places. The bread was fairly soft even though it was later in the day, and mixed okay with the soup. They also give you a piece of cheese and a mint with your order. A nice touch.\r Now the bad; What a dump. The floor is horrible, I've seen nicer garage floors. The chairs and tables are badly mismatched, and the window table is supported by cheap galvanized pipe! The ceiling is straight out of a warehouse, the kitchen equipment looks like it was all bought used, and this is a pretty new restaurant too. The paint job is shabby at best. At first I thought they were going for an industrial setting, so it's okay, but they didn't even pull that off, it's in too much disarray. There are large signs on the wall stating the menu choices, but no prices are listed. Prices are on a small sheet off to the side. And there's a reason, the prices are way high. $7 for a bowl of soup that looks larger than it is? $1 for an extra piece of bread? Considering the cheap environment, this price is even more of a shocker. With all the money they saved on furniture, equipment, and design, and probably paying the employees just above minimum wage, the soup should be about $2.50-$3 a bowl. Bottom Line; All you are getting is okay soup for more than you would pay at a nice restaurant and you get to feel like you are eating in your garage. Pros: Service was good, soup was decent. Cons: Price and ambience. Oh, did I mention the price!? more

awesome soup with no frills 3/26/2006

This place is totally authentic. These guys love soup, they don't love decorations, table service, sandwiches or salads (though they have bothof the latter), they love soup. They do one thing and they do it really well. I eat there all the time and will continue to do so in the future. can be loud at lunch when the restaurant is full which is all the time. Pros: the food, location Cons: parking, noisy more

BEST SOUP in SLC 4/28/2005

Thai chicken noodle soup. Roast pork tortilla soup. Both fantastic! Always order soups in the 16oz. size. The best basil chicken salad sandwich anywhere. Try the ginger flavored lemonade. Decor is Early (worn-out) industrial, retro funk. Now that they are open 'til 7 p.m., this is the best place to eat at the Gateway (one block south). And, at this location, there are actually places (some) to park. Pros: SOUP, chicken salad, lemonade more
