Our Historia


Hola - Nice to meet you. We are Jesus and Kim, proud Boricuas and owners of Papito Moe’s.   We moved to Utah in 2013 from the East Coast (New York and Philly) and were having a rough time finding our favorite traditional Puerto Rican Cuisine here in Utah.  We were sad that we could not find one place here that had Puerto Rican Food. We were hungry for our Sabor (Flavor) from home and went through withdrawal.  At the same time, we wanted others in this beautiful state to experience the flavors and decided to start Papito Moe's. 


Fast forward to 2015 we got our start as a food truck and slowly grew into a brick and mortar.  Our focus is to provide great vibes, authentic flavors, and great services. We serve handcrafted and freshly made Authentic Puerto Rican Food the Papito Moe's Way.  Our restaurant and catering menu features island favorites like, Mofongo, Arroz con Gandules, Pernil, Alcapurrias, Bacalaitos, Tostones, Yuca and More.  


We have been blessed to be Featured on Food Network's, Diners, Drive-in's, and Dives and Voted ❤️ Top 3 by Best of Salt Lake and Best of Utah for Best Latin American Restaurant and Best Fast Casual. We are Utah's Favorite Puerto Rican food option. Come try for yourself and Savor the Taste of the Island.
