I have been to Pat's 10+ times. I worked real close. Burnt Ends on Friday are good but I have overpaid for some bad BBQ. Do not order the meatloaf... terrible. The mashed potatoes were hard, cold and lacking in flavor. The coleslaw is not...More

I had a half rack of ribs with baked beans and corn bread. I felt that the beans were out of this world. The ribs I felt were dry and tuff in spots. The bbq sauce was very tasty and spicy.

Their food was very good. The atmosphere is great. They had live music there when we visited. Personally I tried the brisket which was very good. The rest of the party found the food very good too.

We have visited Pat’s Barbecue multiple times and give the food a 4 out of 5 rating; we have enjoyed everything on their menu. Their staff always earns a 5 out of 5 rating and on all of our visits have really been something special.

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
