Pat's Barbecue & Catering

155 W. Commonwealth Ave. (2125 South), Salt Lake City, 84115
801-484-5963
Barbecue master Pat Barber has been featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, so you know there’s something uniquely delicious about this Southern-comfort-food joint. The specialty at Pat’s is Texas-style barbecue, all served up with Austin-style surround sound. And what could go together better than live music and barbecue? Shows typically start around 7:30 p.m., so arrive early for prime seating. The barbecue combo plates are popular, especially the award-winning pulled-pork and beef-brisket combo, but the barbecue chicken and pork ribs are also delicious. Look out for the weekday specials. Add a cold beer, and you’re all set!

I've been to a few BBQ places around Salt Lake City, and I must say I have no idea why there is so much hype surrounding Pat's. I've been to Pat's three times in the last year and was amazed at the long lines and and high prices for such mediocre (at best)food. The only reason I went back is because my boss bought the lunch. I had the three meat combo, $14, what a rip off! The ribs are lacking much meat and are shriveled up  and stuck to the bone. The chicken was under cooked and at least 50% inedible, the beef brisket was plain.  The "burnt ends" which my boss had were similar to jerky. My experience was the same each time I've been there. This has to be one of the biggist jokes in the resturant business in Salt Lake. I am stunned that people reall go there. I know I won't even if my boss is buying.  Don't waste your time and money!!!  

    

THIS IS THE PLACE!!! The casual ambience and free live music is like being magically transported to Austin or Memphis, but with Cutthroat Ale on draft. Outstanding ribs, brisket and pulled pork, with a long list of delicious down-home side dishes. Make sure to ask if bread pudding is on the dessert menu - it's the goods!
