I had friends visiting from Denver and these ladies were ready for a meat date! Specifically Burnt Ends. I googled Burnt Ends and Pat's came up. When we got there we were told they were sold out. My friends got pretty sad pretty quick. When he found out they came all the way from Denver for Burnt Ends the Manager... More

I have hit a lot of BBQ joints in Utah and this is still one of my favorites. I love variety and unfortunately Pats doesn't allow for that! Not that they don't have variety but I can't get away from the 3 meat combo of Pulled Pork, Ribs and Brisket with a side of jambalaya! One day I'll make it... More

Brisket and Ribs were very good. BBQ beans were solid. Mashed potatoes were good / ok. Sauce was good. Corn break a bit cold and plain. Cool BBQ atmosphere and live music. Service was friendly. Would go back and try again with some other dishes.

Had a nice lunch with friends at pat's! The service was friendly and quick! The portions are large so make sure you are hungry. They have two sauces on the table and I definitely preferred the sweet sauce over spicy on taste. The cornbread wAs really good - did not see any butter or honey though... The restaurant is very...

I don't understand what the hype is all about. This place is far from being a great BBQ restaurant. The two stars go for the side dishes only. Every time I ordered the chicken it comes as if it's not cooked well. Last thing you want is a chicken that has a raw feeling to it. And when I informed... More

We had 7 people so we ordered a mix of things, pulled pork, brisket, ribs and the meatloaf. Everyone was very pleased. Had plenty of food and it tasted great.... More

The Barbecue meats and Corn Bread are great here. Try the mashed potatoes and gravy & the meaty gravy and rice. The prices are a little high but the quality of the food is worth it.

Went for lunch with my girlfriends as we wanted to try out some local BBQ. Brandon was our waiter. Excellent service. Fun vibe and delicious food! If you're looking for off the beaten path, amazing BBQ and non chain restaurant, this is definitely the place to be. It's a funky place on a dead end street. Guy was right!!!! We'll... More

Delicious bbq, great service, and good vibes. At first you find yourself wondering if you're in the right spot but it's a hidden gem. Delicious pulled pork and ribs, the honey on the corn bread tastes like it was straight from the hive.

I usually don't go to barbecue restaurants because I can make better at home. Pat's is one exception. Get a combo plate for variety. They also have a great variety of sauces.
