As a third-generation restauranteur, the goal for Jim and Debbie Leany with their new restaurant Tru Religion Pancake & Steakhouse in Orem is to create a destination breakfast spot serving locally-sourced food made from scratch while launching a purpose-driven operation to support the community. A portion of the profits from Tru Religion will be used to sponsor an individual looking for a second chance, providing employment, education and living expenses.

Jim is so dedicated to the experience at Tru Religion Pancake & Steakhouse he sources meat, eggs, butter, cheese, flour, honey, salt and sugar, from local farms he has personally visited so he knows the quality. Syrups are prepared in house with fruit as the main ingredient. Jim is proud Tru Religion is the only breakfast house serving prime beef, through his partnership with Costco.

If the interior of Tru Religion Pancake & Steakhouse looks familiar, it’s because most of the restaurant’s booths, tables, chairs, bars, doors and woodwork comes from the historic Lamb’s Grill in Salt Lake City, which opened in 1919. When it closed last year, Jim purchased the furnishings to carry on the beautiful Art Deco style through Tru Religion Pancake & Steakhouse. He also bought the candy counters from the former ZCMI Center in Downtown with plans to incorporate those into the restaurant.
