I must tell you that this BBQ joint is very aptly named. When you eat their food you are going to exclaim BAM!
I tried their pulled pork sammy...BAM! I tried their beef brisket...BAM! I tried their potato salad...TRIPLE BAM!
BAM BAM'S BBQ is located on South State Street in Orem, UT. Although the exterior is unique and appropriately styled, it is possible that if you drove by, you might miss it. However, I guarantee once you have tried the food, you will miss it even more and long to come back again and again.
The inside also has a cool vibe to it. The walls are adorned with chalk-like drawings int he theme of their pig mascot. There is also a world map where customers can stick a pin in showing from where they come. Naturally, the heaviest concentration is in the U.S., although the whole world is represented.
I chose to sample the pulled pork and potato salad at the recommendation of a few of their workers. When I mentioned that I would come back to sample the brisket, they also gave me a little sample to try. The very cordial server prepared my food right in front of me, which I love. No mystery here!
As you can see in the photo above, the food is served on a tray with a piece of paper lining it. IT IS NEEDED because this food makes a most delicious mess. (see post eating photo below)
I have eaten a lot of BBQ from all over the U.S., including Texas, but I have never eaten BBQ so tender and so delicious as was this perfectly presented pulled pork. The chunks of meat were huge, the bread was so FRESH and the sauce(s) was fantastic.
I then tried the brisket. After eating the pulled pork I didn't think anything could be better...but I was WRONG! (So what's new?) The THICK slice of brisket was perfectly cooked, smoky flavor, which exploded when you added one of their 3 sauces. It was fall apart TENDER, so much so that it was hart to eat without it falling apart. I ended up eating it with my fingers!
I couldn't finish the potato salad after eating what felt like 10 pounds of BBQ'ed flesh. But I did make a mess on my tray. After making a pig of myself, pun intended, I had to take a picture with the BAM BAM's pig.
If you live ANYWHERE in the Orem/Provo area and you have not been to Bam Bam's BBQ, then shame on you...and more BBQ for me! I highly recommend this restaurant to you and I give it 5 pigs on a scale of 1 to 5. If you don't like it, let me know and I will recommend a good doctor for you!
