We arrived in Rockwall, Texas for a conference and had a craving for BBQ. The hotel recommended the Smoke Monkey BBQ so we took a Lyft to this restaurant 20 minutes away. We were kind of surprised at the location off the highway all by itself. It was 2:30pm so it wasn’t busy at all. They offered a Mexican buffet but we were here for the BBQ. The decor is vintage Americana and very casual. I bet this BBQ is packed on weekends.
The staff was so friendly and helped us choose between the pulled pork, brisket, ribs, and chicken. We just loved the meats and as we ate a friendly gentleman came in and sat at the table next to us. He turned out to be the owner, Eddie Dean who also has the big downtown Dallas restaurant, Ranch. He says he has catered for thousands of people at George W Bush inaugurations over the years.

This restaurant is a bit remote for tourists but if you are in the area and want BBQ, try the Smoke Monkey.

We visited tonight because my husband wanted the all you can eat catfish. The food on the buffet was very fresh and was replenished several times when were there. The macaroni and cheese was delicious!! I got the pulled pork sandwich. It was very tender and had great flavor. My only complaint would be that it was a little crowded. We will definitely be back!

Besides great bbq, was on Wednesday they have Tex Mex, including a generous family pack that fed three adults and a child. 8 enchiladas, fajita meat, fresh tortillas, chips, sauces, and friendly service.

This place may not have the best atmosphere as some have complained. But it is all about the Barbecue. This is probably the best barbecue in the area. Usually understaffed and a bit primitive but hey it's a place where we eat meet with our fingers.
The ribs have just the right amount of smoke flavor and they are not too tender they have just the right amount of chewiness that makes them oh so good to eat. The brisket on all the occasions I have ordered it has been tender and moist, a rare combination. Also good beans and coleslaw and huge baskets of French fries.
Try Smoke Monkey I can assure you, you will not be disappointed.
