Here at Shmokey's, we specialize in smoked brisket sandwiches, pulled pork sandwiches, smoked chicken, and anything else we feel like smoking, from ribs to wings to fish. Come in for our take on southern comfort food. We believe in big portions, big smiles and big messes. If you don't end up wearing part of your meal, you didn't eat it right. Shmokey's is a cash-only restaurant.

Chocolate Mousse Cake II

If you want a second opinion on the Chocolate Mousse Cake ... it was damn fine and yummy, and was a great breakfast with coffee.

Whiling eating my favourite beef brisket sandwich at Shmokeys I asked if they knew where I could get a Chocolate mousse cake for my Dads birthday in a few days. To my surprise I was told I was in the right place. Not only did they bake me a chocolate mousse cake it was by far the best one any... More

The brisket is the best I've ever had. Keep an eye out for the Wagyu burger which is truly the best burger in the world ever even compared to a Kobe burger I had in Japan. The ribs are also so good. The service is friendly. The prices are very reasonable given the quality. There is nice vibe eating in.... More

The food was very good! So if you enjoy amazing mouth watering food this place is for you. It was a bit hard to find and lacking in atmosphere but the food had people packed in!!

First of all, this place was so hard to find. I didn't even realize it was a mall until my third time driving around the parking lot. I shared my meal with my daughter so I just had a burger and fries, but the wife had the pulled pork. The food was amazing! Such a hidden gem! My only complaint... More

The best BBQ in London, located in the most random location! Its not very often you visit a BBQ place with a french trained chef located in an older, run down mall across from an Asian grocery store (I can't make this up). From the fantastic BBQ dishes to the nostalgic pop in glass bottles, to the great signs decorating... More

The moment I walked in the door for lunch the aroma of the food and the Zydeco music had me hooked. My 10 and 13 year old boys were a little nervous about trying something new. There was even something for my non meat eating wife and that is not easy at a BBQ place. This was the first time... More

title says it all. The staff are great. Ribs are far better than any of the more famous Rib Restaurant chains. Wings are 2nd best. Don't miss trying them both

Hidden gem. Walk into the joint and there will be something good and long / slow cooked in a classic BBQ style. There's a definite smoke aroma when you go in. Their hours are kind of strange and you may have to get a clue on their Facebook page ahead of time what they've chosen to prepare that day... when... More
