I'm a local Alpharetta resident and this is our go to barbecue place. Great atmosphere, awesome food and drinks. We've been loyal to Smokejack for a very long time now. I always order the pulled pork and my hubby the ribs. YUMMO! All the sides are great too.

I love the burnt ends here. It's an easy going, friendly restaurant in downtown Alpharetta. The fried pickles are excellent as well and really any of the meats - brisket, sausage, and chicken. Well worth it. The only nit - not a lot of BBQ sauce options.

Thank you for the kind words. We do offer 4 distinctly different BBQ sauces and I invite you to ask your server for a sampler upon your next visit; the Bama sauce is a hidden gem on the chicken! We look forward to having you again soon! More

Visited Smokejack on a snowy night in Alpharetta. They were one of the few restaurants open and no wait for a table. Our meals(combo platter and cue bano) were very tasty and waitress was attentive and very friendly. Mac and cheese and corn pudding are great side selections too! Live music in the bar was another plus. We will be... More

I work nearby and walked to Smokejack twice in one week. I and my coworkers are always warmly greeted and seated. The food is fresh and tasty. We had salads, sandwiches and BBQ meat platters. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

More of an american menu than BBQ meca. Food is average. Standard fair. My business partners love this place but I cant seem to share their passion. Not better than three stars. Bar is upside and good hangout place. Otherwise I'd go to Dreamland for the meat. Will not return, sorry.

I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the food as much as your co-workers. We do offer a diverse menu to satisfy appetites that aren't craving BBQ, but we do pride ourselves on our in-house smoked meats. I'd love to find something on our menu for you to enjoy if you would be willing to give lunch or dinner another... More

This place has got some great BBQ and has Gluten Free option. Used to eat the fried Pickles before going Gluten Free and I have to say they are awesome. Outstanding ribs and love that they have a KC style BBQ. My favorite. Also have another sauce available it you aren't in to sweet BBQ sauce.

We popped in last weekend after driving back from TN. My husband and son said the baby back ribs were absolutely AWESOME and so tender! My daughter had the burger and loved it. I ordered the catfish tacos and was pleasantly surprised by their "taco shell" which is actually made out of a wonton. What a great twist! Will definitely... More
