Best BBQ in Northern Utah

I love this place! Its the BEST BBQ around and its local - not some nationwide chain. The signs inside make me laugh and they have some bands play sometimes, which is fun. On weeknights, I can get a free bbq sandwich with the coupon they currently have on a local website www.godavis.biz. I love... read more

Came here the first time with my wife. Loved the ribs and the chicken. Potato salad was nice too. I'll be back.

Went to Holy Smoke BBQ for the first time ever tonight. The food was excellent and price was good for the amount of food we got. The owner came out and greeted us and explained the menu to us. The seating is a bit limited for all of the people that were eating there. But for a casual dining experience... More

The best BBQ I've found in Utah. Doesn't quite match up to BBQ in the midwest or south but the best here. The owner and staff are the best you will find anywhere.

They provide average, fast BBQ at a reasonable price. None of their multiple sauces really have wowed me, but they have a few that are pretty good. I do like the shot of green jello and the mini cornbread muffin that comes with each meal though. The staff has always been nice and the food is prepared in a timely... More

The BBQ is pretty good....actually about the best we've had in Utah. Our friend from Louisiana said he'd give the food a 4 also (and he knows great BBQ!). The Staff was friendly and helpful. I wanted to try the okra, but no one else at my table was feeling adventurous so one of the servers (maybe the owner?) brought... More

Prepare yourself for a ribs, beef brisket and out of this world customer service. This eating area is a little small but what it lacks in ambiance it makes up in quality of food. The pulled pork is juicy and when you add a side of Blaine's Beans your mouth will say thank you.

Holy Smoke is a good little local BBQ spot with fair prices and tasty food. The good: they have a great selection of sauces that you can choose from--get a side of fries so you can sample them all! They have free peanuts while you wait. The food is pretty good. The staff is super friendly. The bad: It tends... More

This has been the best place for bbq so far. Of the limited places here, this one has my vote. It is the only bbq that my family and I will go back to. Brisket, great taste and smoke. Ribs fall in the same category. BBQ sauces are good. Didn't have to use them to make anything taste better. Just... More

We were in Layton for some Anime convention & across from our hotel is Holy Smoke Restaurant. It is one of those a hole in a wall kinda restaurant with family oriented feeling. I love the peanuts and the funny puns around their sauces. (Very catchy!) I ordered the burger and I was suprise that there was a jello on... More
