Hey, I’d like to share with you a terrific new restaurant I recently discovered in Ogden. It’s on Washington Boulevard at 25th Street and it’s called OJAM Grill. What’s an OJAM? Well, that’s the first letters of the names of the four partners who created OJAM Grill: Otis, John, Anthony, and Mitch = OJAM.
OJAM Grill specializes in food that’s good for the soul like barbecued ribs, chicken, and beef brisket, along with southern style side dishes like candied yams, collard greens, hushpuppies, cornbread, black-eye peas, and yummy homemade macaroni and cheese. It’s sort of like having a southern soul food restaurant right smack in northern Utah.
There’s also a kid’s menu at OJAM Grill with child-friendly foods like chicken strips, grilled cheese sandwiches, hamburgers, and quesadillas. But the fried catfish is so delicious at OJAM Grill that you might even get your kids to eat fish; just tell ‘em it tastes like chicken.
And if you’re an adult and in the mood for good music, there’s a private club called the Wine Cellar just downstairs from OJAM Grill. It’s owned by Mitch – the ‘M’ in OJAM and he features great live jazz and blues from artists like the Legendary Porch Pounders and The Red Line Jazz Quartet, as well as frequent karaoke nights.
So if you’re looking to put a little soul into your strut, I’d suggest heading up to Ogden for rib-sticking southern fare at OJAM Grill.
