Five Star BBQ in Orem, Utah



In other words, y long for good barbecue and baked beans in Utah County.

I've been wanting & hoping to try Five Star BBQ for a few months now, and wishing & praying it was going to be good enough to post. My wishes & prayers have been answered.

Pork Sandwich w/ Smoked Beans & Coleslaw
The smoked beans--oh the smoked beans--I think I'm ready to say that I like them better than our old fave at Sugar House BBQ in Salt Lake. Yes, I said it.

The coleslaw was simple the way coleslaw is meant to be. 
Not only did I eat the coleslaw by itself, 
but I also loaded it on top of the pork on my sandwich, 
and that right there is one of my all-time favorite meals.

Pumpkin Cake
I was worried there would be nothing sweet, 
but then I saw a pan of pumpkin cake & a pan of apple pie. 
Done & done.

Beef Brisket Plate w/ Bread, Housemade Chips, & JT's Brunswick Stew
I had never had Brunswick Stew. 
It was so delicious & comforting; perfect for a cold Winter's day.

Apple Pie
Just look at that homemade pie crust!

Not pictured: My son's mac & cheese, applesauce & cornbread.

  1. Thank you so much for this awesome post! We're glad you came in and loved the food. Next time, we'll grill you up some ribs and sausage :)

  2. Thanks for the review -- we've only ever had BBQ at Wallaby's here in the Provo area, and we were SO disappointed. Have you ever tried The Smoking Apple?

  3. I agree! This place is super good! It's not good that I work 3 minutes away from it. I especially liked the mac n' cheese side as well. Can't wait to go back.

  4. I ran by this place on a long weekend run and made a mental note to visit it again (it smelled like Texas). I'm glad I found your post because I had forgotten about it.

  5. Janey- If you are a lover of Amazing BBQ. I would Like to invite you to try out a new BBQ joint in Orem. It's called D Boys BBQ & Grill. Located at 294 N State St. This place is Awesome and I would encourage you to try it out and see what you think. It has gotten some amazing reviews that you can look up on facebook, yelp and google. I my self am in love with this place and want to share it with every one.

  6. You really need to try Wallabys in Lindon!
