This is a fabulous dry rub BBQ restaurant. Owner hand selects wood for smoking, lots of cherry and apple from the wonderful smells circulating through town. Meat is very lean and tender. The smoked turkey is my favorite but also love the burnt ends. Sides are really tasty, slaw is hands down the best I've had. Really friendly place and... More

A good choice for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. Daily specials & good desserts. They also have a family dinner that will feed at least a family of 4 for people on a budget. They are Closed on Mondays.

I used to come to Smokey's all the time when I was in Wellsville as an exchange student. The food was so delicious, and something I'll never forget are their mozzarella sticks 😍😍😍

Ribs are tender and fall off the bone, turkey was moist and succulent, mashed potatoes and gravy were outstanding! Couldn't ask for better service! Cowboy Poppers for appetizer dipped in rib rub before cooking... AMAZING!

I grew up and lived in Wellsville until I was 10 and every Sunday after church we'd have lunch there. Best bbq I've had even to this day.

The BBQ is great. The owner only uses lean cuts of beef and other meats. The sauce is good. If your a BBQ fan don't pass this one up. It's located just off I-35 about 20 minutes SW of KC at exit 198. It's worth the stop.

Good value for BBQ near KC. Kids meals are very reasonable, and include one type of meat, one side, drink, and Oreo pkg. I love the smokeys salad, the BBQ ranch dressing is awesome! Husband got the 3 meat platter, burnt ends were a little dry but the corned beef was really good. Apple corn bread, frickles and beans are... More

We were driving towards Kansas City in I-35 looking for a place for dinner. I read the reviews about this place and drive right to it! I have never had fried pickles and would never have tried them if not for speaking with the owner, Rene. They are so light and addictive! I had the burnt ends (perfect) and my... More
