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

End of day and out of a lot of product, the two slices of brisket were good but burnt ends dry and just a chard flavor. Pork was really juicy good flavor, but not much smoke flavor. Had pinto beans and they were way under cooked, and I didn't like the sauce. Over all clean and very friendly staff that... More

Forget any other BBQ joint in Utah County! Bam Bam's BBQ is the most authentic Texas style BBQ in the area and their quality and service are unmatched. I took a hungry bunch of guys from my work after a round of golf. The brisket, ribs and smoked turkey were all hits and the sides were just wonderful. The owner... More

Visited Bam Bams for the first time and was happy with the food and the service. The price was a little high for what it is, but I was not dissatified. They have sandwiches and also sell meat by the 1/2 pound. When they slice your meat they will tell you the weight and charge you accordingly. No plates, everything... More

Their Brisket is better than any fancy restaurant by far and under $10. Make sure you get the fatty brisket not lean the flavor is amazing and it melts in your mouth. I love the meat here but we usually take it home and add our own sides. The owner is so friendly I love when he is working!!

This place is new and far from fancy or easy to find or locate parking, but loved the ribs I ordered. Didn't like the sides and the sauce is lame and limited, and when I ordered the ribs to go, they were wrapped into some old-fashioned butcher paper and handed to me. That said, the ribs were delicious--just about the... More

BAM BAMs is a great BBQ place that serves some of the best brisket I have ever eaten. The owner is very friendly and you can tell that he loves what he does. Having said that, the biggest challenge with this place is that they need to improve their customer service. The meat you order is simply stacked up on... More
