After many years of skiing SLC and loving Sugarhouse BBQ, we thought we'd revisit Pat's - we ate here around 10 years ago. It's a classic BBQ shack, pretty much off the beaten path, even in Salt Lake. Bench seating works well in such a...More

Pats burnt ends are very good & their ribs are usually pretty good, but not this time. They must have cut the smoke time short- sad for us. Their potatoe salad is not that good, but the corn bread is very good. Ask for honey...More

The best bbq I've eaten. This beats out bbq in Austin and Memphis. We tried pulled pork, brisket, and ribs.

We really enjoyed our late lunch, with great food and great service. The ambiance was better than I expected, and I liked the nonstop music on a quality sound system. The unique smoked meatloaf was super. We will return.

Loved the smoked sausage and brisket. Disappointed in myself for ordering a salad as my side instead on the gumbo. Will do the right thing next time. Good bbq.
