Great food. The ribs are heavenly. The smoked turkey is moist and delicious. The sausages are perfection.

What a treat, I enjoy good BBQ while traveling and seek out great places. Well Bam Bams is now on the list. The brisket is excellent good rub, great smoke and literally melts in your mouth. The mac and cheese is interesting but notbreally worth it when the meat is so good. If you are looking for plates and silverware... More

I am a Texas BBQ aficionado. This was as close as it gets to home. Great brisket - juicy, flavorful, beautiful smoke ring with bark. The pork ribs were better than average but not spectacular. The Sauces are good, not great. Overall, fills the need. Worth the drive. Skip the chains because they are horrible here.

Bam Bam's has by far the best BBQ in Utah. The brisket is my absolute favorite & the turkey comes in at a close second! The mac & cheese is my favorite side dish too!

I have been going to Bam Bams for about a year now. I am a huge fan of the brisket, in fact, that is the only meat option from the menu that I order. The great thing is even though I haven't branched out beyond the brisket there are still many choices. They have sandwiches, meat with sides such as... More

Heard it was a great BBQ place but was disappointed. We arrived and they had no ribs. The BBQ sauce isn't labeled on the tables. The sides are very limited. The pulled pork was average. I personally can bake it better. The beans just tasted like hot sauce. To top it all off they don't serve alcohol.

We often buy meat here (on Saturdays) to be the core of our Sunday dinner; the brisket is so tender and full of flavor. We pass on the sides so we can indulge more on the brisket.

We ordered brisket nachos, brisket sandwiches, side of potato salad, and a side of beans. positive: brisket and roll was tasty, sauce was good, nachos were flavorful and big enough for 2 people. negative: pricey for what you get(sandwich combo $11, nachos $12) Potato salad was terrible, it tasted like straight pickle juice with potato chunks mixed in. We could... More

Some have complained about the sides (potatoe salad too mustardy) and the lack of selection, if you are about the meat, you will not find a better place. The beans and. Ole slaw were good and that's about all I need. The brisket was lean yet very moist. Just a bit of hot with a nice smokey flavor. The sauces... More
