Located just a few blocks from a strictly vegan café, Pat’s BBQ is primarily a southern comfort food joint serving ribs, chicken, pulled-pork and other finger-licking good eats, but the club also caters to music lovers who prefer meals with some good old fashioned blues. Pat’s recently expanded to include Howie’s Hall, a backroom with a permanent stage and seating for up to 80 people.
Meat lovers unite! Bring the kids, but maybe direct non-carnivores buddies to down the street to Vertical Diner. Post-feast, reconvene for live entertainment.
Local and touring acts including The Legendary Porch Pounders, Roby Kap, Jaded and Paul Thorn have appeared onstage, along with other blues, bluegrass, folk and acoustic rock acts. Shows typically start around 7:30, so arrive early for prime seating.
Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives stopped by in 2008 to include Pat’s in its Utah coverage. Now the popular local joint is Guy Fieri-approved!
