Our family of 4 dined here with friends while in Nanaimo. Our friends frequent George's fairly often and I had seen the restaurant featured on Food Network Canada's "You Gotta Eat Here." Between the 4 of us we tried: the pulled pork sandwich, the smoked chicken sandwich, the beef brisket sandwich and the combo plate. For sides we had the... More

You sometimes think these food network shows might lie a little. How can all the restaurants be so good. Smokin George's was better than advertised. Staff was incredible and food awesome. Order the feast to try a bit of everything. Highly recommended.

This is my guilty pleasure during the week when I just don't feel like sticking with my clean eating plan. The pulled pork sandwich is the best and the fries with the paprika mayo for dipping is KILLER! Love, love, love.

Love this place, food is delicious and staff are always friendly. Smoking George is just as entertaining in person as he was on tv in "You Gotta Eat Here" on the food network! My favourite sandwiches are the smoked chicken and beef brisket...yummy! The fried chicken is the best I have ever had! The fries are perfection, crispy on the... More

If you are looking for some fantastic eats, you gotta go to Smokin George's. There barbeque sauce is awesome. I enjoyed the ribs, & the brisket, make sure you get some extra sauce on the side, to dip the brisket , yummy. Coleslaw was okay, but the beans have quite the bite to them. If you like barbeque you will... More

I've been a semi-regular for a couple of years and know every time I grab a quick lunch, bring in a treat for staff or a FEAST home for the family, everyone will be happy. Favorites - Brisket is buttery, so very tender and perfectly seasoned. Deep Fried Pickles - had many places before but the type of pickle stands... More

This restaurant is located in an industrial area but is well worth a visit; especially if you have a craving for BBQ'd food. They are open daily 11:00 to 7:00. They focus on BBQ and BBQ alone; and boy do they ever do it right. This results in tender morsels of moist meat with unparalleled flavour and texture.
