Highly recommend this place - great food that everyone liked, drinks were very good and not overpriced. Live music was terrific and the outdoor seating in the back has a really nice atmosphere (not out on the busy street) like some other places.

I was excited to try this place because I love BBQ. I had found the restaurant online and went over the menu and knew what I wanted before we got there. Parking is a pain but the guy at the door said there will be a parking garage soon so I'm sure that'll help. We went last night (my birthday!!)... More

Positives: amazing customer service from a waitress from England and the manager. The macaroni and cheese was fresh, homemade, and delicious. The baked beans were delightful as was the pimento cheese grits. The two types of sauces and the chicken wings were some of the best I ever had. Dinner portion sizes were amazing. Negatives: the ribs were so dry... More

Was in the mood for some ribs and headed to Smokejack based upon the generally good reviews. Sadly I was disappointed with the food. The Baby Back ribs were over cooked, tough, and very, very dry, not at all the falling-off-the-bone I was anticipating. The pimento cheese grits were bland. Too bad because the greeting was cordial and my server... More

BBQ items were really good, the chicken was really moist with good flavor. Would NOT recommend the catfish po'boy. I ended up eating some of my daughter's meal as this sandwich left alot to be desire and the coleslaw was lacking in flavor.

Oh man the food here is so good. Excellent choice of beers too. The ribs where the best I've ever tasted, will definitely go again.

Went into the restaurant to grab a cold beer and chill. While sitting there enjoying my beer one of the restaurant staffed members confirmed what I thought I was seeing......Clyde the Glide Drexler (former NBA Superstar) was there enjoying some ribs. So I went over and introduced myself and complimented him on his years of service to the NBA and... More

This was the first restaurant that I went to with my family after moving from the northeast. The hostess was extremely rude and said that she "did not know how long the wait time would be" even though there were empty tables. She was seemed very put-off by my family of 5 showing up without reservations. We left and found... More

We love the food. We've had different meats and it's very good. The veggie selection is excellent too and of course the dessert. Anyone that can make a pot of collards taste good gets a good review from me everytime. The burntends are Yummo! Just upset that the one in Forsyth County closed down. Maybe bad location. Some people thought... More
