Went to eat here today for lunch .ordered chicken and fries with gravy. My husband ordered fish and chips .we had two beer and our order was 26.00. You order like a fast food restaurant and they bring it to your table when it's ready. Very fast service with the best southern fried chicken I have had since Vegas. It... More

I’ve been meaning to try this place for a long time and finally got the opportunity. It’s a great location, sitting in a busy area of a busy business park with ample free parking. It’s a small and quaint dining area and it’s busy. The service is brisk and bit crusty with the attitude of get you in and out... More

I stopped here for lunch and while the wrap was good, my fries were very over cooked. They make the food in front of you, which I like, but the person making my food didn't use gloves. As someone who has dealt with food safety for years, I didn't appreciate that my food was being made without gloves after touching... More

I've been going here for 25+ years, and while it's getting a bit run down inside & could use a fresh look, the food & prices are still pretty good. Gravy & Slaw are always free, where most others are charging extra. I stick with the basics, Clubhouse & Fries, Chicken & Fries, Burgers, ect. but chances are if you... More

We love Smokey's for breakfast dates. The staff are friendly. It is cafeteria service... with refills on coffee... big servings and super cheap. It is casual and relaxing. They have fantastic turkey dinners around Thanksgiving and Christmas. My boys love the clam strips and chips, husband likes fish and chips. Great prices and fast.

I have had breakfast here several times. Primarily because it is very inexpensive. $5.99 for their big breakfast (including coffee) is a great deal. However, there are several issues with the place. There really isn't table service (somewhere between table service and cafeteria), the food is okay but nothing is outstanding, the portions are okay, the restaurant is dingy and... More

It's around the corner from my work so it is a convenient quick fast restaurant. The staff know you by name only after going a couple of times and the food is good. The have a great breakfast menu and the portions are large. Lunchtime is when they rock and you can get darn near anything you would make at... More
