I hope this is the correct location for Holy Smoke BBQ in Layton, UT. I always go after ribs at any new BBQ joint I encounter and Holy Smoke did Not disappoint! The meat was well seasoned, fell off the bone and had a wide selection of sauces available. We were with a friend who is Air Force and they... More

This place is the bomb! Every time we've eaten here, we are always amazed by the utter deliciousness of their food. Their meat all has amazing flavor and we loved every side dish. They even have a ton of yummy sauces to choose from. We also love the entertaining decor you can peruse while you wait. The owners sense of... More

Four of his ate at Holy Smoke for our son's birthday. We had 2 samplers and 2 meat only plates. The food is delicious and plentiful.

I got 2 meats and even sides with just ribs. Normally ribs have too much sauce on them for my liking. These had very little which is what I prefer.

Good combinations of both meats and sidesPulled pork - made it difficult to decide. I chose the pulled pork and Cajun sausage with fries and fried jalapenos on the side. I would classify Holy Smokes as a no frills, good eats, restaurant. The meats were good and favorable, and sides were fair. The service was quick, fast and friendly. All... More

Absolutely great meal - very friendly staff - great service. Ribs and chicken are outstanding. Pulled pork and brisket are very good. Very casual restaurant- great place and we will be back.

Food was OK. Service was slow! Order at the counter and self serve your own drinks and sauces. Not sure why in the top 10. Doesn't deserve the ranking.

The reviews had me thoroughly confused as to what to expect. I was a bit disappointed. Let's be honest, the owner or maybe manager seemed super friendly and kind but had some lackluster people working for him. Service was slow and the food was good but not great. Definitely lots of options for sides and we sampled many: fried okra,... More

OK but just didn't hit the mark. Great selection of BBQ Sauce. Nothing memorable from our selections.

This place has the same kind of informal atmosphere of the best barbecue places in Texas.The ribs, chicken, beans, & slaw are all first rate. The brisket is OK but doesn't have the masters touch (it may be cooked a little too hot in acquiescence to the health department). They have a good selection of sauces from sweet to hot.
