I had the pulled pork and ribs. The pulled pork was very dry and over cooked and the ribs had very little meat on them. The service was good.

Cheers type of atmosphere (w/o knowing your name), rooming, bright restaurant. Lots of menu options EXCEPT for the non-pork eater (brisket served after 4/4:30pm only - we went for lunch), several different chicken variations. My husband had some mac and cheese dish which was AWSOME.

Most of meal is fine. A chain so you know what you order is consistent. But the first time I ordered the beans, I thought it was a "sample". Like when bars give you a taste of a beer. ... and I love beans. What 2 ounces maybe. Since you can order two sides, I had to order two beans... More

A friend of mine and I ate here last week for lunch. He'd never been here before, but wanted to try it, based on my recommendation from a previous visit. We arrived about 11:40 am, so we were among the first lunch guests to show up. We ordered the corned bread (FABULOUS), he had an order of wings (FABULOUS), and... More

Today my lunch included the amazing pulled-pork, the grilled corn, and the warm cinnamon apples. It is always pleasant, and the noise level allows conversations while savoring the meats. Give the place a try if you have not done so before.

This place is OK. Nothing really special about it. I don't even remember what I ate there. it was just food on a plate.

Everything about this place is awesome. Especially during the winter, my husband and I stopped for dinner on a snowy evening and Smokey Bones was one of the only restaurants open for business. There were very tired looking men who had plowed the snow all day and night having dinner. The wait staff as well as the greeters are smiling... More

Start with the positive. The food is amazing. I had 1/3 rack of St Louis ribs and pulled pork. Meat was very tasty and portions were adequate. I had mashed potatoes and fire roasted corn, and garlic bread came with also. All very good. Now the bad...took us about 20 minutes to be seated which wasn't the problem. When we... More

Very busy Friday night, we ordered the pulled pork and it wasn't up to standards for there food. Dry, allot of hard ends and just not what I was expecting. The ribs my wife ordered also (combo) were dry and real tough! For them being so busy I wouldn't have expected this type of food quality. I just don't like... More

We received a recommendation for this restaurant from a local college while on a visit. It did not disappoint as far as bbq food goes. There were 5 of us, and we all loved our food, including my two kids. Unlike other reviews, our waitress was great. She came by numerous times (but not too much), our food was exactly... More
