This place is hands down the best BBQ I've ever had and I've been all over the south at all the "best bbq" joints you've never heard of and this one puts them all in their place. Best brisket and ribs anywhere, sauces are great, not that you'll need them. Awesome sides too; Mac'n cheese and potato salad will change your life. Awesome service and incredible food what more could you ask for?

Tritip Sandwich*

This was our second visit for lunch, and both times were fantastic experiences. The food is second to none. It came out quickly and was delicious. Our server was friendly and attentive. We ordered some additional sides to-go, and they were brought out immediately. The restaurant is very, very clean and, overall, it is a relaxing and welcoming environment. I have recommended this restaurant to many people and will continue to do so. Looking forward to another lunch soon.

Brisket Sandwich

I judge a BBQ restaurant by the brisket and the ribs, so I had to try the brisket sandwich. I was impressed by how much brisket was on the sandwich and it was juicy and full of flavor. The bun was toasted which made it even better. The potato salad was homemade and tasty. Not the traditional mustard based potato salad but still very good. Overall a great first experience and I'll be back try the ribs!!

Brisket Plate

I went to this place because i found it on Google. It had good reviews but it's here in Arizona and I'm from Texas. So i thought I'll be the real judge of this. LOL! To my surprise that brisket transported me back to Dallas at a family barbecue with music, cards, and dominoes going all at once. Man oh man was i happy. Everytime I want barbecue from a restaurant i think of this place. I live an hour away so i don't get to visit as often as i would like to. Keep up the great work guys. See you soon.

Holysmokinbutts is the best thing that's happened in Tucson. We order 4 Lbs brisket every week for our sandwiches and dinners. It's so juicy and tender makes your mouth water on the first bite. Great staff, friendly and service is very fast. Highly recommended.

The Coyote Sandwich Brisket/Pulled Pork

This is a true diamond in the rough! Drove past while making another stop and then circled back for lunch. Seated as soon as we walked in and drink order was taken by someone stating that they were helping out the busy waitress. Our server, Sara, showed up moments later with a very helpful attitude. Discussed a few items and then both ordered the Coyote with baked beans and the mac & cheese. Seemed like we blinked and the food arrived. Generous portions and served on a toasted bun! Food was outstanding to the point we added a lb of brisket and an lb of pulled pork to our order for takeout. Sara did a great job and that resulted in a surprise cash $$ tip for her. Live quite far from this location but already talking about the next visit. Heads up - closed on Sunday and Monday.

This is some mean BBQ. Hands down the best in Tucson. The brisket melts in your mouth and definitely competes with what I used to get when I lived in West Texas. Thrilled to finally have a real BBQ joint in the Tucson area! I will be back again...and again!

and Beans and potato salad and pulled Pork sandwich. To start with the ordering was excellent, a great website and very easy to order and maneuver around in. Food was excellent no complaints and the beans and potato salad were very very good s was the BBQ sauce. We did take out. Maybe next time they should wrap the ribs in tin foil to keep them warm. Will definately be back and order again. Wayne K

I was born and raised in Texas. I know good bar b que. This is great bar b que! My favorite is their brisket. I get both moist & lean. I don't really use sauce on it because the flavor of the brisket is just that good. I've tried all their menu items. The ribs are remarkable; pulled pork is my husband's favorite. I can taste why. We also like the pork belly and turkey breast. The sides are fresh and tasty. It is a clean place with a real friendly staff. The service is always good.

Pulled Pork Sandwich

I love barbecue and have tried many places in my native Tucson. This is by far the best I have ever had. I have been to their food truck before, but the restaurant is even better if possible. The pork was moist and tender. I had a side of coleslaw and it was the perfect size with a lot of flavor. I loved that bun was toasted and crispy also.

Perfect mix of fatty, tender and chewy without being dry. Bun went great and was very filling.

Actually we had the brisket, pulled pork, smoked turkey and tri-tip.... we wanted to try ALL of it! Everything was AMAZING, perfectly cooked and delicious. The beans are the best we have ever had, nice big pieces of smoked meats throughout. Definitely the best side dish ever!

4 Bone Rib Plate

Ate here for the first time today, and it blew my mind. I had been watching Guy fieri's "Diners, drive ins and dives" show earlier today and saw he ate at a couple of bbq places. It made me crave some bbq myself so immediatly i looked up bbq joints in Tucson and Holy Smokin Butts caught my eye. As i sunk my teeth into the ribs, Guy Fieri came to mind and i believe he would approve and love the ribs being served here. They were meaty and fell right off the bone with ease. My mom tried the pulled pork sandwich and she said it was Amazing. Everything on my tray, from the meats, to the sides, would definitely recieve the "FlavorTown" approval from Guy! It definitely did from me

I always get tritip because it has less calories than other cuts, but it is so deliciously prepared here that you would never know!

Turkey Breast Plate

The turkey has the right amount of smoke flavor and is very moist. Beans with coleslaw is an awesome combo. The sausage is incredible!

Jimkennedy1949 5 months ago


Had the giant beef ribs. Best ribs I have eaten, meaty, flavorful. Juicy texture, flavor stands on its own even without sauce. As good or better than small Texas barbecues I have eaten at in Austin and rural Texas areas. Wish they had them everyday instead of just Saturday. Eating barbecue for over 50 years and I know the real deal.
