Have picked up several pounds of pulled pork and brisket on two occasions as friends in Arkansas like this place. Pulled pork is good, nothing super special, but the brisket is poor. Rather than intact slices of meat the brisket is essentially ground up roast beef. Not much flavor, very little smoke. Sauces not very good. Super sweet and heavy... More

Good BBQ atmosphere, good service, and really good rib plate. Each rib is huge! I'd recommend it. I went there with my family, and everyone was very satisfied with their meals.

I have to go to N. W. Arkansas often & Smokin Joes is a good place to eat yesterday at lunch it was standing room only that should tell you something I've never been dissatisfied with that place since BBQ is a subjective food it's worth a try

Locals told us this was the place to go and they were correct! Great ribs and Brisket> Incredible side dishes also. Great service. Check it out and compare to your favorite local BBQ places. It's right up there with the best of them.

First of all my husband wanted to do Mexican and I insisted on smoking Joe's. What a mistake that was! My husband ordered the barbecue plate he got three dry pieces of brisket. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries were all soggy and had been sitting so I asked for them to... More

My husband LOVES chicken fried steak. He wasn't disappointed. That thing was HUGE! It almost covered the whole plate and was almost an inch thick. They had to put the mashed potatoes and gravy on top. He said it was the best chicken fried steak he has ever had. My daughter had the bacon cheeseburger which was also a good... More

I ordered two poutines(one with pulled pork) for take out. After 30 minutes of waiting in-store and being asked THREE TIMES what my name was, and what I ordered, they somehow finally managed to scoop some fries in containers, added cheese and gravy. If you go into there to get take out, and wait in-store for it, I recommend you... More

We are from Texas and have eaten at most of the renowned BBQ places. Smokin' Joe's Ribhouse had some of the best ribs we have ever eaten. The rest of the meal was ok, but the ribs made it worth the trip. Portion size is huge, price is reasonable. Three BBQ sauce options, all good. Fried pickles and jalapenos were... More

We visited on Valentine's Day and although packed, we got a table quickly. Family atmosphere, welcoming and speedy service with a smile. The ribs were thick, meaty and deliciously tender, the chicken was super moist, the baked potato salad some of the best I've ever had. We got extra ribs to go since we were from out of town and...

Great place to eat for an out-of-towner. The sampler platters are huge, so prepare to take some home in a doggy bag.
