Saw mixed reviews but gave it a try. We got the slow service accompanied by cold food. Very extensive menu. Ribs were quite fatty. Pulled Pork was good as was the slaw. Not worth the prices charged compared to other BBQ places.

Used to be a regular, then Smokey's quality and service went downhill, so thought we would give it try after a couple years-BIG Mistake. After being ignored for what seemed like an eternity, my to go order was placed. The quality and service remain poor. Waited 20 minutes and they were not busy for items that were already prepared. Minuses-Beans were undercooked, ribs were fatty and cold. Pluses-cornbread was food as was the slaw. I was told the Sampler Combo would feed a family of 4- Not sure how 3 ribs, a single scoop of pulled pork, 1 piece of cornbread, and 2 small sides does that. Value- prices have gone up. Not worth the $27 paid to feed 1 1/2 people. Next time I will take the time to drive to Reno for BBQ

Dinner last night in smokeys kitchen. Burgers and ribs. Burgers not properly cooked. Ribs nice enough but expensive ($34). Fries and onion rings over cooked. A family of mice on the outside deck running around! Would not recommend to anyone.

Visiting the kidzone museum and stopped here for lunch. They have good food at a decent price. Just wished that everything wasn't already mixed with bbq sauce. But they do provide a bucket of other sauces to mix in. Family friendly restaurant. Try their espresso milkshakes, it is delicious!!! Nice place and friendly staff.

We came here for an amazing breakfast before a hike. The French toast and blueberry pancakes were perfect. The link sausage and bacon we're also delish. We enjoyed our meal so much, we came back for BBQ for lunch.
