The Sugarhouse Barbeque Company

At Sugarhouse Barbeque Company, our signature style is Memphis style barbeque. If you’re expecting ribs laden with sauce that masks the true, delicious flavors of the meat itself, you’re in the wrong place.



True Memphis style barbeque focuses on enhancing the natural flavors of the meat through a process called dry rub. A special blend of spices is rubbed into the meat, which is then slow smoked for several hours. It may be time consuming, but the payoff is worth it: the meat is infused with amazing flavor, and you’re left with the best slow-smoked barbeque you’ve ever had.



Casual dining with full bar & patio available.

"The waitress was great, and recommended we try vanilla cream in our dark beer. Sounded a little different, so we tried it and it was like the adult version of a 'root beer float'. Only this one had alcohol in it! We will be back, and will definitely have the 'beer float' again."

"Best BBQ in SLC. And the ambiance is amazing. Hand made bar and booths out of 100+ year old barn wood. This place was obviously built by master craftmen. Great for family, friends, or date night anytime, day or night."

"Went for the first time with friends that were regulars. Got what was pretty much a meat sampler to share with the hubster. Best part was the ribs! Delicious, fall off the bone, fantastic ribs! Try all of the homemade sauces and find your favorites (I really liked the bbq sauce and the Carolina style) to put on the rest of the meat - they will need it. The other cuts of meat were well cooked, moist and nice, but had no smokey flavor and needed a kick from those homemade sauces. Other people in my party really enjoyed the pecan pie for dessert. I was also a bit disappointed in the sweet tea; it was lacking in the sweet department. Maybe I was hoping for too much on the authentic southern bbq place front (I moved here from southeastern VA), but overall it was good and I will be going back for those ribs!"
