Sat at the bar with my friend so we could watch the Cubs play in the NLCS. Also wanted to watch college FB game. Smokey Bones is a true sports bar/restaurant as all TVs were turned to sporting events tonight. The bar tender was playful and extremely attentive. She put up with our comments and often cleverly responded. Thanks Autumn.... More

We keep going back over the years hoping it will get better, now we just stop for a drink. I feel it is overpriced and BBQ is below average.

My first time at this location and I read some signs that stated they are undergoing construction. It looks great inside. The food was freshly prepared. Baby back ribs were great, French fries were great they did not need ketchup. Only thing were the beans they were not good. They taste good, but taste as if they were taken from... More

Highly recommend the grilled wings, were deliver hot, not greasy and very tasty. In my book, nothing better with a cold beer. Which they have a great selection. Sat in the center area just west of the bar at the high top tables. Very comfortable chairs and great location to view many different TV's. The 3 star rating comes from... More

This place has more types of ribs that the law allows! The ribs was delicious which all kinds of sauces. French fries were hand cut. Onion rings were beer battered. Drinks were plentiful and reasonably priced. The place was great!!
