We are a neighborhood-oriented, made from scratch, casual restaurant. The feel is young, hip transcending the perception of BBQ restaurants past.

They have the best cheesy grits. Even if you don't like grits you'll love them. Kids love the mac and cheese. Super cheesy and yummy. Not much option for vegetarian but there is a couple options.

Smoke Modern BBQ is located among new, sort of modern western buildings, between Basalt and Carbondale. It offers a nice concept: real smoked BBQ served in a nice restaurant rather than a road-side dive. Busy on a Thursday evening, buzzing with a manageable noise level, Smoke's service was prompt and professional. Two of us shared ribs and brisket with mac... More

Smoke is one of our "go to" restaurants. They have great, consistent service and food. Lunch specifically is a great option with fast service. Their southwest salad is one of the best I've ever had - the shrimp make it that great! Pulled pork and sweet potato fries are the best around. All meals can be shared with a girlfriend;... More

Loved our meal at Smoke. Excellent atmosphere and great side toons like Mac and cheese or creamed spinach. A little pricey but perfect for a splurge night.

No wait, great wait staff, reasonable prices, and most of all great food! The Louisiana type items on the menu were authentic (which surprised me as a discerning Cajun foodie). The only thing that I could be critical of is the loudness of the restaurant, but this a stretch considering this is the nicest rib joint I have ever been... More

We were a party of four for dinner on a Sunday night. Two had 2 meat plates while another had the fried catfish fingers. The barbecued brisket, chicken and pulled pork were juicy and had a good smoked flavor. Fried catfish was crispy and came with a large order of sweet–potato fries. Creamed spinach sides were also tasty. I had... More

The Smoke Modern BBQ was a great place that my wife I stopped in for lunch. I had the Green Chile Burger and my wife had the Pulled Chicken Sandwich. The taste of our meals were absolutely amazing. They were both bursting with flavor and deliciousness (I know because I ate part of my wife's sandwich as well). The service... More

One of my customers is located nearby so they suggested this for lunch. I ordered carryout so I can't speak for the sit down service. The server was extremely polite when I came in to pick up. I ordered a brisket sandwich and baked beans. The meat was very good and the bun was solid. They gave me a ton... More
