Nice treat

I first visited Smokey Joe's in Kenting the year before, so I thought I would try the Kaohsiung restaurant, The food and service was good, just like Kenting's restaurant. The neatest part was the decor, with the large wall art and statues.

Been twice to Smokey Joe's, both times was a pleasant experience. The menu is large and includes a good range of TexMex food from Nacho's and Cheese, to Chimichanga, Quesadilla, Fajita, and Buritos. They also specialize in Ribs, which I found to be cocked great, but the BBQ sauce could have done with half the sugar. It was more like... More

I ordered nachos, the classic homage to cheese and salsa. Weirdly it was buried in a few centimeters of lettuce for on apparent reasons, perhaps in case I wanted to pretend I ordered a salad? It was average , at best. For a main course I had a burrito, which again featured too much lettuce and not enough salsa or... More

Been living in Kaohsiung for six months and this is where I come when I crave a burger like back home in the States. Beef has that grilled American flavor I can't seem to find anywhere else... It is a little pricey for Taiwan but it's worth it if you're in the mood.

It's american Mexican and Asian and Italian mixed. The owner of this chain owns other chains in the city. The food is great I enjoy eating here a lot. Good atmosphere and large to fit a lot of people. Great food always had a good time there

For a local chain the Mexican os decent for Asia. From one resturant to the next the quality is the same. I could not tell which location I was in. I have only ate the Mexican dishes, so I cannot comment on the other food styles. The margaritas though are not to be desired.

There is limited parking in front on the restaurant. The restaurant has additional validated parking on a side street. The restaurant is very large and has an extensive menu. The restaurant has several drinks that you would find in a Mexican Restaurant in the United States. The dishes we ordered were very tasty. The Pork Ribs were very tender and... More

Smokey Joe's restaurant has been well-known in kaohsiung for many years. It has a unique decoration, dim and cozy atmosphere- kind of like what anyone would expect in a western pub. I ordered their smoked salmon alfredo fettucini the last time i went and i must say that i have had way better spagetti elsewhere in kaohsiung. The noodles were... More
