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

After having a difficult time placing a to go order, he was very unprofessional and didn't seem to know how to do... 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...

The very best BBQ around. I'm a local and we eat there at least once a month and sometime more frequently. The service is always good and the BBQ is best to be found in the area. The spicy sauce is excellent, with a little bit of a bite. Ribs are excellent and pulled off the fire at 5:00 pm... More

After reading a few reviews my wife and I stopped in for a late lunch. My ribs and chicken combo was smoked to perfection and literally fell off the bone. The lid sauce was suite with a lite spicy bite. My wife had the smoked pork sandwich and she said it was as tender as soft butter. Rolls were good... More
