The deal there is,,,,if you just go for lunch, you're going to take food home. The portions are very big. Best part is, it's all delicious. Everything on the menu is damn good. I would give 5 stars here but they don't have alcohol.

Was a bit disappointed. The Mac and cheese is great. The hot sausage is super but the brisket and ribs were a bit dry for me. I was expecting better. I will be back to try again and hope it was an off day.

Today I had the ribs. They were delicious! The sides tasted good too and the service is consistently great here. I love this place! You can't go wrong with eating here.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch as we do every so often. We had to change tables to get the wait staff to notice us. We ordered the lunch special, roasted pork loin and smoked sausage. The pork loin was so dry you couldn't chew it and the sliced smoked sausage had been cooked so long they were... More

I have eaten at Smokin Joes for over 20 years now. It is still the BEST dry rub ribs in town. The place isn' fancy and the address is definately not in the greatest part of town. Still, it is more than worth it. The ribs are just that good!!

This BBQ is by far the best around. It is even better than well known Hot Springs BBQ places. The wait staff are friendly and attentive and the food can't be beat. I love the meat and the variety of sides. The rolls are wonderful too. We will be back!

Well went back to Smoking Joes on Sunday and we were ignored by the wait staff. At first I thought they were just busy - but when the tables before us emptied out and we still had to ask for service I thought something was different. apparently the first tables at noon totally wore out the servers. we were there...

stopped in for lunch while visiting customers. Ordered the BBQ sandwich special that comes with two sides. I thought it would be a bit of pulled pork on a roll, typical lunch fare. I found out you can get brisket for the same price so I thought I'd try that. I don't usually because most brisket I've had is dry... More

Great BBQ restaurant. The service is good, atmosphere is good. I like the brisket sandwich. Has couple different BBQ sauces that are pretty good and fit the flavor profile you are looking for. French fries are pretty good with BBQ sauce on it.
