Somebody has obviously spent a lot of time and money into trying to give this restaurant that old west feel. The courtyard is full of exhibits and an attempt at creating a little humour e.g. the old cowboy in the toilet. Full credit to the management for having live singers on stage. A costly expense given the small audience. The... More

Our party of four each ordered different entrees, and we all enjoyed our meals. I am a vegetarian, so wasn't sure what I could eat at a BBQ joint but Calvin T's had a vegan burger on their menu. I didn't expect much beyond a frozen patty (e.g. Boca) and was really surprised by the size and flavor of my... More

Limited menu which is ok. We got the ribs which were very dry and tasteless. The cost was high (47 dollars) for 6 small dry ribs, a baked potato, and generic tasting potato salad. All portions small. My husband tried the cowboy beans which were hard and undercooked. There was a gentleman singing country music from a karaoke machine who... More

Victor S, Manager at Calvin T's Smoking Gun BBQ, responded to this review

I am sorry you did not enjoy your ribs, but in order for this to have been over 40 dollars you had to order two rib dinners not just 6 ribs. We only use true baby back ribs that are 1.75lbs per rack because they are the best and do cost considerably more than your average restaurant rib which has... More

Way way way overpriced "bbq". Brisket was "pulled" instead of sliced. Didn't offer turkey sandwich but accommodated the request. Didn't have pickles, onions or other bbq sides. When we asked for pickles they gave us relish. Didn't have cornbread. All of the bbq sauces were sweet. Potato salad was bland. Beans were undercooked. The owner was friendly just food was... More

I've never eaten there so I can't review the food. I was just happy to see a bar in my hometown. We went in twice, drank, and danced. Unfortunately, it closes at ten, and most of all the patrons we talked to were from Europe and they don't curl up at ten. One day, Southern Utah will get it and... More

Great smoked brisket, chicken and pulled pork. Friendly staff and quick service. Many sides with the meal. Live music at night. OK bar with good selection of Craft Beers. Nice bartender. Went here a few times.

This place has a bar (+), and an awesome outdoor seating area with good decor (+). I feel like ze german and le french tourists would love this place just for that, but it was a ghost town when we went. Impressive singer/guitar player to boot. Bartender could use some practice, and I didn't get to try any BBQ, so... More
