Good but disappointed

Like the atmosphere and decor. Ordered beef brisket with some burnt ends. Based on other reviews I was really expecting greatness. Well I was disappointed in the meat. It was very tender but not as flavorful as I expected. Sauces were good but major flavor to dish. Sides were great - Mac & cheese... read more

I know this is a barbeque joint, but I just wasn't in the mood for barbeque. My son had the Bama chicken sandwich which he really liked. I had the Brunswick stew and a salad. The stew was good but not remarkable or memorable. My wife had the smoked chicken Cobb salad which she didn't like very much. There was... More

Had supper here during a business trip, I got the Brisket with Mac N Cheese and the Grilled Vegetables. The brisket was moist, juicy but didn't fall apart. It had a very nice smoke ring! The Mac N Cheese was nice and creamy but had some of the top browned layer which I love and the Grilled vegetables had a... More

Having lived in Memphis for 4 years, I know what good barbeque is. We went here based on my cohorts reviews on Tripadvisor. I could not have been more pleased. WARNING! The portions are HUGE! If you think you need the larger size, think again. I ordered a full rack of ribs as most of the other "barbeque" places I... More

Absolutely best BBQ in this area. Delicious & huge portions. Ribs with Memphis rub and burnt ends are our favorites. Mac & cheese is fantastic!

I recently had a business lunch here. I ordered the fried green tomatoes, a green salad with sliced brisket. Wonderful all around. The fried green tomatoes were crunchy, flavorful. The salad was fresh, crispy greens with a wonderful house dressing. The sliced brisket melted in my mouth. Great atmosphere; great place to be with friends. I can't wait to go... More

Whether it's BBQ pork or chicken dishes or salads you choose, you won't be disappointed. Very cozy and rustic atmosphere in both the restaurant and bar area. Try their fried pickles, among the best in the area. Located in the heart of downtown Alpharetta, right across the street from our new City Hall. I tried the BBQ salad. Enjoyed the... More

Smokejack is a really upscale BBQ spot in Alpharetta. I tried the combo plate with smoked pork shoulder, smoked wings, burnt ends, pimiento cheese grits and corn pudding. The burnt ends and wings were really excellent. Neither needed any sauce or extras (though the bleu cheese sauce was nice to mix things up). The pork shoulder was the reason this... More

The atmosphere is fun. My husband and I ended up here on a Saturday night. We were happy not to see an overcrowded, loud place. They had a decent crowd. We sat at the bar and had a Smoke Jack BBQ sandwich and fries. It was good. They have a decent selection of beers on tap. I liked the flavored... More

Went for dinner with friends. Everybody enjoyed their meals. The pimento cheese appetizer was yummy. Service was good. I will be back.
