“Authentic Texas BBQ in Provo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

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 is a great guy and the service is cordial and quick! You will find yourself looking for excuses to return. I suggest it for business lunches. It is just the kind of "hole in the wall" great experience clients love!

“Good BBQ in Orem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

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 is served on butcher paper. The BBQ was good and the flavor was very good. You are spending about $13 per person which for a casual BBQ place in Orem is a little high. But again, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food was good.

“Amazing Brisket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

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!!

“G!reat Barbecue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

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 best I've found in Utah, and I have tried every barbecue place I could find. Maybe next time I will eat them with a sauce of my choice.
