We have been eating at Smokehouse for many years. The service is generally very efficient and always friendly. The BBQ is very good as is the fried catfish and shrimp. It is one of the few places left that offer liver and onions, and theirs is really good! The portion sizes are large and very tasty.

I had the Sr. Lunch. A 4 oz. steak, side salad, and cole slaw. Everything on the menu was great portions, tremendous and prepared well. Extremely reasonable pricing and the wait staff was awesome. Obviously they have learned some great customer service skills. By the time we left there was standing room only and a long line waiting for tables.... More

This place had been here for many years. It's an old school mom n pop place that serves bbq, chicken fried steak and burgers. There's nothing fancy about the decor but the food is good and the price is right. Today I had their special which was St Louis ribs. There was plenty of meat and the flavor was good....I... More

Maybe it was just our luck to not be served a good meal here tonight but it was probably the worst bbq I have ever had. BBQ sauce no better than a glorified catsup, food came out luke warm to cold, dry toast with very little butter, mac an cheese congealed glop. We had senior portions and the portion size... More

Not the best I've ever had, but not bad at all. The servers are always nice and friendly. You get a lot of food for the price. The beef is good. The one time I tried the sausage it was a bit tough. Good beans, so-so potato salad.

While waiting on the motorcycle shop next door to change a battery, we wondered over for a sandwich. Busy place, tables were mostly full and the staff was working hard. Ordered sliced beef sandwiches that were maybe a couple of cuts above average. Bottled sauce on the table was better than average, service was brisk and down to business. Check... More

Great menu selections coupled with excellent and friendly service make for a very good local restaurant. Portions are generous. Locally supported and well established. Not the least bit fancy, just good food. There is no reason to leave without fully satisfying your hunger.

What a good feeling, throwback to at least 15 years ago we used to eat here. The décor has hardly changed, but maintained. It feels like everybody knows someone. Family owned, very friendly, locals and nearby towns people come to celebrate and enjoy good ole' barbecue. I hear the pies are absolutely wonderful, saw coconut crème as it passed by...yummy....

I have been visiting the Smokehouse in Denton for years now. Ever since I came to Denton in the early 90's, and one of the cool things, or scary things, this place never changes. Well the servers do, but the decor doesn't, the menu doesn't, which is not really a bad thing, it just is what it is. The food... More
