One of the best barbecue places around. I prefer take out since I don't care for the sauce but still award 5 stars for great barbecue.

Sweet southern hospitality and delicious food. The ribs were amazing and budget friendly. Unlike another comment I read they did have sweet tea during my visit.

My wife and another couple went to the Smoke Shack for dinner. I've been there several times for lunch at work. You can't beat their large sandwich special and they have some of the best fresh cut fries in town. The ribs are great and the beef is always good.

My husband and I were unsure about eating here as we are from the Memphis area so are pretty spoiled to good BBQ! So glad we stopped. The food was amazing! He got ribs and I got chicken. Both were excellent!!! We will definitely be back! The staff are super friendly and even gave us free corn as it was... More

Very good BBQ meat and the sauce is great! The ribs are not baby-back, just regular pork ribs but they are meaty and excellent! Service can be very slow and sometimes on to-go orders, the cashier seems as if he does not want to be there.

Consistently good smoked meat. Can't go wrong if you're looking for good Q. They do a nice job with sides as well. Give them a try.

Smoke Shack has the best bar-b-q in Maumelle. You get a lot of food for the money. The service is not the best experience but the food is awesome.

Smoke Shack Bar-B-Q is a casual joint with good food and generous portions. The prices are reasonable too. The service, while not overly helpful definitely got the job done. Close to home so we'll go back.

Ate here this weekend on the suggestion of the motel clerk. Food was good, quantities were adequate and the price was fair. The food had flavor, that's for sure. They close early at 8:00 pm, not sure why, but be forewarned. We took our food to go and it was just fine.

This little spot puts out the best BBQ in the entire state! Yep, I know that's a HUGE claim, but one visit to Smoke Shack will have you agreeing. The Prices are ridiculously low, the food portions are extremely large and the sauce.. OMG, the sweet and spicy sauce, made right in the restaurant is to die for. A half... More
