I love good BBQ, especially Texas style brisket. My wife craves burnt ends. Both are excellent here! The cold sides 9Potato Salad & coleslaw) are commercial, but one I absolutely would consider home made, they are that good. The brisket is fork tender, fork tender,...(ask for the fatty end) , the burnt tips infused with the smoke and seasonings, a tiny bit on the dry side. All in all, you get more than enough....the Senior Dinner is a bit more than you want, but you just cannot stop eating! This place is nothing fancy, and they do take out as well as inside dining. All in all, a really delicious place. We didn't try it, but we've been told the smoked fish (salmon) is absolutely outstanding....maybe next time, because, yes, there will be a next time.More

Yeah, I used the word “meh.”I’ve never been to a bbq restaurant where the bbq had zero smoke flavor. Zero. In fact, both the brisket ( actually , it was more like pot roast) and pulled pork both tasted like they were cooked in a...crock pot. The meats were tender. No complaints there, just no flavor. Without the sauce, I couldn’t have eaten the meat. They were both so bland. It’s ironic that the building has signage stating the meat is so good that you don’t need sauce. So not true. That’s a shame because great BBQ should have enough flavor that sauce is only a compliment, not a requirement. We had baked beans and potato salad as sides which were both good. Prices were reasonable for two dinners. The food wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t up to expectations of a typical BBQ restaurant. Funny thing is I smell like BBQ from the smoker outside of the restaurant . The previous owners of this place made some of the best pulled pork I have ever eaten, so I was very disappointed this time. On a side note, the honey BBQ sauce tastes mustard based, so if you dislike mustard, be forewarned. Sad to say, we won’t be back.More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Clearwater. The place is easy to drive by but look for the giant smoker in front of the restaurant. It's a non-descript little place that packs a lot of punch. We ordered the combo platter of...5 items (double ribs, brisket, pulled pork and sausage). We ate the whole platter; everything was excellent. There are different sauces on the table and you can request the Carolina mustard BBQ sauce, which is very good. Comes with a few sides. We ordered the fish dip to go, and it was delish; it had a smoky flavor that was great with crackers.More

Visiting the area and wanted lunch. We decided try BBQ and visited this place. I found all was just average. Staff was friendly. We had a Beef and A Pork sandwich. Neither was special in taste or size. We also tried the Mac and Cheese....Again just average at best. Now I’m putting this place up against the standards of Captains in Palm Coast And Shortys in Davie Fl. Both border on being close to excellent. I will try other BBQ restaurants in the area on my next trip!More

Should have reviewed years ago but after having terrible BBQ in my town remembered this gem. Spent a work day a month here for lunch for a number of years and recently traveled down from Tallahassee with the family and made the stop each way....Great casual yet welcoming feel in this simple, clean establishment and they serve up outstanding BBQ, smoked fish and great service at reasonable prices and good portions - Thanks folks! Love the hot BBQ sauce! I travel throughout Florida for work and compare each BBQ place to Smokin Out so there's that for what it's worth.More

Decided to try this place for lunch and was very surprised. The food was very good, not overcooked, over seasoned or over sauced (no sauce on the food from the kitchen but you can add, don't need to though). I had the brisket sandwich, mac...and cheese and green beans. The prices are very reasonable and serving size is just right.More

My wife and I visited at a friends suggestion and ordered 3 items for carry-out. Chicken dinner/fish spread/smoked fish. All 3 items were OK -- nothing worth returning for. We are both very fussy about our BBQ -- and while decent -- we have decided...to try another place next time.More

The decor is quite plain, but the servers are friendly and the food was very good. We had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches with fries and were not hungry when we left. It is on a busy highway, but don't let that stop you.

This is a little local barbeque restaurant that is easily missed on 19. Just South of Moog. But well worth finding. I am from KC where the bbq is delicious. This place is the closest I have found to compare. I get the pulled pork....I have yet to find any beef anywhere around here though. They have great seafood too. I just have not adapted to it yet. Being from the Midwest I am not a big fan of seafood. But for pulled pork, I recommend visiting here. The staff treat you like family.More

We love Smokin Out. We eat there twice a week and taken several friends there too. Now they are also hooked. A good variety of smoked meats and all of their sides are made 'in house' and are excellent.

Nope, sorry- no beer or wine. May I suggest their takeout? The BBQ there tastes amazing at home, too!
