Everything I have eaten here is prepared with love and the freshest, quality ingredients. Everything is totally delicious: pulled pork, ribs, chicken, burger, wings, Cassava fried. It is a small little place , not open Mon, Tues. If you get a chance to go, you will be very happy. They serve soft drinks in bottles and have beer as well.... More

My boyfriend and I went to this place for dinner tonight and were really impressed. The decor and atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable, the place is small but clean and cozy. I had the burnt tips _ OMG they were FANTASTIC!! The meat was super flavorful, and so tender. Just the right amount of heat - I could have eaten... More

Best pulled pork I've had and the burgers are stellar. Nice little dive with a competent and curious head chef.

I've been to Shmokey's several times and have not been disappointed once. I've tried everything from the burger to the ribs and can guarantee that it's the best BBQ in the city!

We love this place. Its hard to find somewhere that appeals to both parents and kids. The menu changes with different daily specials. We try to visit once per week. Highly recommend.

My son has enjoyed numerous meals here so we all went for a late supper. The restaurant is a tiny little informal place in a mall I have never visited before. Who knew? The food was very satisfying. I had the pulled pork and it was just ok. I keep looking for amazing pulled pork when I am out (it... More

Wonderful, authentic BBQ with extremely friendly ownership/staff. Just love the food. The location is a bit of a drag, but they seem so busy that I'm sure they will be moving in the not-too-distant future. I suggest eating there as the wonderful food needs to be eaten fresh and hot. We've taken it home a couple of times and it... More

Just ate a Pulled Pork Memphis Style and it was just perfect. My girlfriend had the Po' boys (shrimp) and it was awesome!

Exceptional brisket. Burnt ends are a must. Casava fries are the perfect side dish. I am addicted to this hole in the wall.

Tucked away in a small space in an unassuming run down shopping center that has seen better days is Shmokey Rob & Sons. The owner is often there and very friendly and talkative to customers. The food is delicious and simple, the way southern BBQ in a traditional sense should be. Their sauces are delicious and they use nicely toasted... More
