Only place we get BBQ

Fortunately, we live in Conway and it's about a 5 minute drive. We get take-out at least once a month. There are only two of us and we usually get loads of food and eat on it for a couple of days. Their ribs are falling off the bone good. (This is an improvement since new management). The whole... read more

Have eaten here several times. Decent barbeque, especially for a BBQ place in Arkansas, a state which is not known for having good BBQ. The sliced brisket is good as well as the ribs, the side of beans isn't bad, but the slaw and potato salad can use some work. The salad with pulled pork is good also. The wait... More

A co-worker and I stopped on the way through for training. We got there around 4:30. There was only one other table. We waited so long for someone to greet and seat us that we nearly left. My co-worker even opened the door a second time so the bell would ring again. That didn't even work. Finally she sat us.... More

I went to Smokehouse while traveling through the area on business. Decided that to try this restaurant after reading some web reviews. The staff were friendly and provided great service. I had the ribs and chicken and both were good, although I did not care for the potato salad or cornbread. Overall it was not the best BBQ I have... More

We had dinner here tonight. The food was amazing! The chopped beef and chopped pork were so smokey and lean. The service was fast and the waitress was so friendly! We will recommend to family and friends and will be back soon! Yummy!!

We have a son that works at the local BBQ place (not in Conway) and their BBQ is really really good so we're a little biased by that BUT i tried the sliced beef, chicken and ribs with corn, pintos and texas toast. The chicken was pretty typical, its hard to screw up chicken. The beef was tender (not fallin... More

We've only been once and picked up our order in drive through, but the food was exceptional. Best I've had yet. There was a problem with my credit card being overcharged but it was resolved the next day. 5 stars!

I have been dining with 3 generations of Smith family BBQers since the middle 90s. Part of the reason for this is not only the incredibly warm and friendly atmosphere cultivated by Cletus, son Don and Don's three sons who worked at the restaurant at various times, but the work of their "Pit Man", Mikey, who has worked for the...
