Great friendly staff, despite us being half an hour late for our reservation! Can recommend the Nachos, BBQ chicken wings and peppered squid as starters. Go for the full rack of ribs rather than the half :) They even did our desserts to go as we were too full of milkshakes!

As an entrance we had those sausages wrapped in some kind of dough.. sausage in a corn or something Like that, veeeery tasty! We ordered afterwards steaks, large plate, it comes with salad, mushrooms, fries and some kind of onion rings that were amazing! The only problem was that the place was a bit cold, we didn't took our coats... More

I have had the burnt ends, brisket and a burger here before. While the food is good it also seems overpriced. The venue always seems to lack atmosphere.

I had the cajan crisp which was a very,very nice chicken burger. My partner had one of the combos which was nice but looks a bit lost on the plate.... more chips, more meat and some interesting sides would help. We ordered burnt ends as a side which were lovely. Our 5 year old had the hot dog and enjoyed... More

I started a new job today and my new boss told me about this place. I thought id give it a go. The food is incredible! I opted for the smoked brisket, it was a triumph of smoked melt in the mouth beefy goodness! The sweet potato fries were crispy and delicious. As the last spoon of warm pecan pie... More

Booked a table for 12.30, on arrival waiter was very nice and helpful. Sadly that is where the good news ends. The homemade Nachos were ok. the kids hotdog was stale? the squid was drenched in fat? As for the mains, the ribs clearly microwaved packet jobs with a bbq sauce squeezed over the top (dreadful) The coleslaw (home made,... More

Me and my partner visited at 19:00 on Valentine's Day this year. The staff were so friendly and helpful! However, we were given the standard menu and ordered the "big smoker platter" for £44 - a bit pricey but it was a special occasion - but the platter was not so special... We enjoyed maybe half the meal, still of... More

Two of us came for dinner on Saturday night. The atmosphere, food and drinks all complimented each other. I had a burger and my boyfriend had the brisket, both of which were fantastic! We will definitely return.

Went for lunch here as my partner and I had done some training at the track. The restaurant was empty which probably should have set off alarm bells. We had the hot links (not spicy at all and a very small portion size, but tasty enough) and the Louisiana hot chicken wings. I enjoyed the flavour of the hot sauce... More

Authentic American Smokehouse serving homemade burgers, tender steaks and a wide range of meat smoked from 12 - 24 hours. With a fully stocked bar, a variety of cocktails, a fridge full of American bottled beers and even more ales, lagers and ciders on tap, along with many more mocktails, milkshakes and massive challenges; there's nowhere better to release your inner carnivore. Herbivores however, are also both welcome and well catered to, with Chef's Specials, burgers and the best Mac & Cheese in Oxford.
