We lived in Texas for 10 years and we know good barbecue. ("Barbecue" there is slow cooked meats as opposed to "barbecue" in Utah being grilled hamburgers and hotdogs.) Bam Bam's does brisket right - it was tender and tasty. My husband always asks for the cut off the wet end meaning the fatty end. Any cut would taste good... More

Went for a lunch, expected it to be a bit yummier than it reality it was. I do not think I would go back again! Not my favorite.

Friday night I felt like barbecue but my wife was sick. I left work and decided to try Bam Bams. I had brisket and beans to take home. I also bought a bottle of their special rootbeer. Everything was great. Can't wait to take my family. Love iy.

We took our Texas friend. He gave it a thumbs up. So if the Texan approves, it must be good, right? Seriously, this is the best BBQ I've had outside of Texas. The meat just melts in your mouth. I agree with someone who said the sides need work. I think the potato salad is just store bought. And I'm... More

I have had BBQ in Kansas, Texas, and a few other states. I ordered the pork ribs at Bam Bam's thinking they would probably be overcooked and hoping just for a decent experience. I was blown away. These are some of the best ribs I have had in my life. I went back 3 times in the next couple weeks... More

I really, really, liked the meat here. It was delicious! But I would love to see sides (mac n' cheese, baked beans, salads, etc.). Also, better beverage options would be great.

You know you are getting good BBQ when you order it by the 1/2 pound and there is no salad option. I love their chopped beef! To me, their bbq has the perfect amount of flavour. If you are on any sort of diet, this might not be a good place for you considering the paper it is wrapped in... More

Served on butcher paper and complete with two slices of white bread. This ain't Elgin, but to find this food and ambiance here in Utah... it's five stars. Even have the long picnic style tables. But, my food cooled a little too fast after heating, so it's a four star. Could be pricey: 1/4 lb brisket, pork and 1 link... More
