I had seen many positive reviews but was not prepared to look for a parking spot in the very crowded parking lot. There wer 7 or 8 people in line when I walked in to order at the take out counter. It was a little difficult to figure out the varied menu so I settled on one pulled pork sandwich... More

If you are looking for great BBQ this is your spot. Has a cool hole in the wall vibe but is amazing and super fast to get you your food.

This is by far my favorite BBQ dive in Utah County. Located off Geneva Road. Come Hungry. My personal favorite is the Brisket

My son is a rib lover! He LOVES these ribs. We have to go back every time we come to town. I love the pulled pork with the sweet BBQ sauce. The cornbread and the potato salad are great as are the fries. Not a big fan of the coleslaw, just not my style. Ribs run out early, get there... More

This place is about the average local BBQ joint. The atmosphere is fine and the staff were friendly. Good fries and the pulled pork I got was good but was cold. They did have a long line though so maybe that was why. I will probably eat there again but wouldn't necessarily go out of my way for it.

The 4 of us enjoyed brisket, chicken, beans, Cole slaw, mac & cheese, French fried potatoes, garlic bread, and corn bread. We enjoyed the house bbq sauce with the meal. IMHO the tasty food was a little dry but definitely tasty. The Cole slaw was the best for me even though the French fries were from fresh cut potatoes an... More

First rate BBQ-every time; it's the only BBQ place I'll use when I cater events for business. The pulled pork is amazing and the brisket is the best I've ever had. Their sweet sauce puts it over the top!

My parents have tried it before and took us to Five Star last night for our first time and we loved it. My parents said they had ordered the lean brisket before and thought it was dry. We tried the fattier brisket last night and it was delicious. Moist, flavorful, so good. There were so many choices of sides and... More

The ribs were very good, the pulled pork excellent, and sadly the brisket was dry. Their sauces are also very good, as were the sides. Having spent a lot of time in the South, I am very particular about my ribs. I will go back, but can't say that is the best I've had.

We phoned in our order, picked it up and brought it home to enjoy. We ordered beef brisket, chicken and pork and it was all good. I didn't care so much for the mashed potatoes or the macaroni. The mashed potatoes would have been fine, except they were seasoned with too many herbs. The macaroni tasted smoked, which was confusing... More
