This was my first visit to Bam Bam's and I have to say from the moment you walk in the door you want to try what they're cooking. The line moves extremely slow, but the staff is super friendly and willing to help. When we placed or order we found out that they were out of Pulled Pork so we... More

The food was pretty good. I didn't care for the delivery, when you receive your food, you eat it at a picnic table on unprinted news print paper. I personally would like a plate. It was quite messy, guess I'm a plate & fork kind of gal.

I love to walk in and watch the employees tear apart a pork butt with their bare hands! Most tender meat around, the brisket can't be beat.

This place has the best brisket in Utah by far. Make sure to get some of the fatty cut. It sounds weird but it is totally worth getting. The smoked turkey and house made sausage is awesome too.

Family took us to Bam Bam's and I was so pleasantly surprised how good this dining experience was. Living in Texas a few years ago I had grown to understand once I left the state I would have trouble find good brisket. Well I found it at Bam Bam's. Great staff!

This is the way BBQ is supposed to be done. You pay by the pound, it comes on paper instead of plates, and you get as much white bread, onions, and pickles as you want with your order. If you've been to Rudy's down in TX that's what this place reminds me of. The meats are worth their weight in... More

Went here with some friends on the high recommendation of my mother, and it was well earned. The flavor of every single meat we tasted was mind blowing and permeated the meat. I've never had anything like it. My friends had lived in the southern U.S. and quite like BBQ and they were blown away as well. If flavorful, mouth... More

If you like BBQ then Bam Bam's in Orem is where you should be heading! There are other BBQ places, some of them decent, but Bam Bam's is a cut above the competition. The brisket is amazing, but what really surprised me was the turkey, it's phenominal!
