Dish of the Week » Porcupine's chile verde burrito
$12.95 » There are burritos -- freezer-stored or those stuffed with unnecessarily sweetened meat -- and then there are burritos . You know, the ones that you can scarcely pick up, lest you douse your clothes with earth tones of Porcupine Pub & Grille 's chile verde. But since you're sitting down and the server just brought a fresh round of silverware (the first round was spent on doling out the nachos), you can dig in without hesitation. Porcupine (read the review at http://www.sltrib.com/taste/ci_14456306" Target="_BLANK">http://www.sltrib.com/taste/ci_14456306 ) oozes casual and laid back. And if you choose well, the flavors come out big, too.
