Mexican In Taiwan

Mexican food is excellent, menu is very large, both Asian and Mexican meals, fairly priced great atmosphere...Service is great and the hours of operation are good as well. Where most places open at 6:00pm Smokey Joes is open early for those who want to eat earlier rather than later...Go visit!!!

My boyfriend and I were just there as a "date night" during our holiday to KS. The menu is quite extensive (52 pages) so there are options for even the pickiest eaters! The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Between two of us we shared nachos, buffalo wings, and chicken fajitas. The fajitas for two people didn't come... More

I have been twice in Smokey Joe's with my family (wife and 2 small kids) and friends. Both times we had an excellent time! The food is good (with nice South American options), and also the service and the atmosphere (looks like a Mexican place). And, important, we had enough space to get into the restaurant with our baby's stroller!

Enjoyed our meal - service still a bit slow but better atmosphere and nicer food. We stuck to the mainstream menu and we weren't in any hurry.

If you like it hot and spicy, go for the Mexican sausage and rice. Watch out for the sizzlers as the portions are very large. Just right for Two. Great place to go, by yourself or with friends

Having had the wrong food brought out we kindly asked our waiter to correct the order; however, he sent the manager out who upon refusing, laughed at us and was very rude. We have eaten here many times and the service has gradually become worse and worse. Having now tried some of the nicer, more friendly mexican and thai options... More

To all those people giving this restaurant grief over their 'average' food can I remind them that this is a Rib House and when in Rome... well... the point is, did you actually order any RIBS? I admit on the first visit the food was a little underwhelming and I too resented the tip section on the bill after 10%... More

Smokeys is a place that serves everything. Asian Western and Mexican. You can have it all here. The food is ok but not more. It's a good option if your family can't decide what you want as they have it all. But for a nice dinner I would try something else.

Here you can get all, though not guarantee everything is tasty. You can get really nice Mexican-ish food. And of course if you are craving for Chinese food, they also provide a lot of them. I have been to their chain restaurants many times. Despite poor service, the food is pretty good.
