Needed a BBQ fix

Am visiting from Texas and needed to have BBQ when I ran into this place. Ordered the 4 rib plate and ended up eating 8! Don't usually like sides as I am all about the meat but I have to say the coleslaw was creamy with a solid hint of hot spice and the beans were full of bits of... read more

One of the best BBQ places I've visited. The foods is delicious, feels fresh and with an eye catching seeing. Staff is very courteous and attentive. Loved this place wish I had one near home! !!

Great beef brisket, kids enjoyed ribs. Good food and service. A little pricey but it was nice to splurge every so often.

Sometimes you can say it was because the food had been on a warmer since lunch and you went to dinner too early. That doesnt work with BBQ. The rib tips were so dry they were like jerky. The brisket was the fattiest I've ever had. The cornbread was mushy. Potato salad and fries were fine as was the iced... More

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. The staff was friendly and helpful especially since we have not been before. They give large portions it is a bit pricy so we will only be visiting for special occasions. Overall we had a great experience.

On a double date and we split the dinner for two between four people. We order two sides in addition and it worked out great. The service was polite and the place was too busy we couldn't get a seat. It wasn't too noisy either. There were many people with families and just a good atmosphere. Good chain style BBQ.

Food was good and quantity was above average. Enjoyed the feast for two. There was enough for 3 or 4 people. Service was quick and polite. If you want a reasonably price BBQ meal in Layton this is the place to go. Located near many hotels and stores.

We visited your restaurants last night and walked away with the feeling that we will never return again. We were greeted friendly and our first impression of the waitress was a good one. But then after we ordered we waited an unusual amount of time and never heard from the waitress again. Finally we asked for our sons drink and... More

Went with a big group of people, service was good and friendly, food was plentiful and tasty. I had enough to be full that night and lunch for the next 2 days! Good value and great food.
