Solid barbecue in Willits. We enjoyed brisket (choice of lean or fatty, or both), ribs, and pulled pork. Try the fried pickles appetizer. Saw a review about gourmet cuisine and I would only say that this is barbecue, not French fusion cuisine. Arrive with the...More

Went back to Smoke tonight for dinner. We shared the three meat combo. We had wet ribs, sausage, brisket and the sides were spinach and burnt end mac and cheese. It was good and we will go back.

While I did not specifically note the availability of gluten free options, Aspen and down-valley restaurants, like those in El Jebel, are usually aware of dietary preferences for their customers. Have you looked for online... More

We are a neighborhood-oriented, made from scratch, casual restaurant. The feel is young, hip transcending the perception of BBQ restaurants past. Serving a variety of draft and bottled microbrews representing local breweries and popular brews from great BBQ regions (Texas, the Carolinas, Memphis/Arkansas and Kansas City) we feature an approachable wine list and a full line of spirits. The menu is driven by the chefs and their Southern roots, the Great American BBQ traditions as well as seasonal and regional products.
