Smoke this!

A great local favorite. I always like the practice of spending my disposable income on local flavor rather than national chains so if you're in the mood for great smoked meats go chew on the bark at Holy Smoke. Great selection of homemade sides to compliment your inner carnivore cravings. Sounds... read more

Food was great! Staff were great! Easy to get to! Think I liked this place? Had the rib platter and okra with potato salad and sweet tea. The place was clean and the staff attentive. The only minor thing I could find was that some of the fried okra had clumped together. The potato salad was very good and unique.... More

This is a small place that is sometimes a tad warm inside and usually very busy because they have the best bbq in the state. You order at the counter from a small menu then get your own drink and sauces( choose from many) then sit down and they bring your plate to you. The plates are plastic baskets with... More

Had the chance to try the ribs at Holy Smoke in Layton UT. I was pleasantly surprised at the great smoke ring and perfect amount of fall off the bone flavor. The potato salad was light with the perfect amount of dill. The house beans were a bit on the tomato taste side, not bad but I like traditional BBQ... More

Having grown up in the south and attended college in Tx it is hard to find good barbeque that is actually smoked, instead of boiled and slathered w/smoke flavored sauce. After reading all the reviews I was really looking forward to trying out Holy Smoke. We arrived after lunch and were taking longer than the cashier wanted so she sighed... More

Man, this place is good. It's a million times better than Famous Dave's or Dick's. The food is fresh and tasty. Loved the homemade applesauce as well. Definitely recommend this place!

This is one of the best eateries I have eaten at! The food is delicious and hand prepared. We ate there for lunch and to see the locals come in gave us a feel of warmth. The owner interacts with the people and they seem to really feel comfortable there! I can see why this place is always busy!

I've been here many times now on just about every visit I make to Layton. I have to say that while I never really associate good BBQ with UT, the get it right. They have a very wide selection of traditional BBQ meats with all the traditional sides. If you like BBQ you will probably like Holy Smoke.

After reading all the glowing reviews, the wife and I decided to give it a try. We ordered a couple of meat plates. Quarter chicken with fried okra and cut corn. Brisket with jalapeno bites and potato salad. When our food arrived the smokey aroma was awesome and we thought we were in for a real treat. Sadly both the... More

While staying in the area, the name of this place caught my eye and I thought I would give it a try. On a Wednesday night at 6:30, the place was moderately busy with couples, friends, young ladies and good old boys. The restaurant is “decorated” with cowboy themed paraphernalia and the staff was very friendly. The manager made a... More
