This little hole in the wall, that is rarely open has a nice surprise for you if you ever catch them open. Their barbeque is authentic and excellent! They have their own smoker and post when things come out of it on facebook so that you can go and get their burnt ends or whatever you like when they are... More

Alll I can say is if this is a top restaurant in London, then we are in a sorry state! Yes,, there was lots of barbecue sauce but as far as flavour goes it was way off the mark. We sister and I went to try out the place two months ago and found this dark little whole in the... More

Delicious! Definitely recommended if you're in to BBQ. The location is inside the mall and kind of difficult to find, but adds to the character.

If you ever make it to London, there is a small BBQ Restaurant hidden in a mall that houses a Sears Outlet Store and an Asian supermarket. This however makes it a great hidden spot in town. Thier daily specials are to die for especially their Ribs

I've been meaning to review Rob's for well over a year, and every time I go out of town to try BBQ, it can never match up to the value and quality the Rob and the gang have been providing to us Londoners who are fortunate enough to frequent the shop. The burnt ends are the greatest thing produced from... More

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!
