Smokin' Ribs is visible most days as you drive toward it as the huge outdoor wood smokers billow smoke into the parking lot and across the street. It's really a stop-in and pick-up-to-go place. Inside is small, smokey and not a very appetizing venue. I ordered a slab of ribs which came with 2-sides. I selected baked beans and potato... More

The Bar b que and sauce is great. Always a must for us is the sweet potato pie. A rack of ribs is very expensive, but very good. Right off their smoker in back. No atmosphere, just good food.

I'm a local in this area and just ate here for the first time. Awesome pork sandwich. Best I've had in a long while. My only complaint. I want more of that sauce. It was great. Don't judge this place by its cover or you will be missing out.

Food was very good. Had ribs and wings. Little expensive for what we got, but didn't mind since food was good. It was pretty much take out only.

Not bad, but then again, not great. The chopped pork is tasty, the ribs not so much. Served with a but of an I don't really care attitude. The side (slaw, and baked beans) okay at best.

Ribs aweful! Was throwing up the food. I'm horrified. Please do not eat there. Yuck. I felt sorry for my garbage can when I threw out the nasty 20 dollars worth of food. I will never eat there again.

My wife had a pulled pork sandwich and loved it. I had pork and sausage combo, quite good. But small screened in inside eating area had several flies and just was not a very clean environment. We will go back but only for takeout!

When you drive by this restaurant the smell lures you in. Unfortunately the taste was not good. The ribs were difficult to chew. Our son ordered the pork sandwich and that was very good. I have never returned and do not plan to.

The first time I ordered ribs here they were the best I'd ever eaten and I couldn't wait to return. The last few times we've ordered from here, the ribs were too undercooked to eat - and we've also had them so over cooked and dried out, they were difficult to chew. There just doesn't seem to be any consistency... More

the menu is not as large as we thought it would be.more side dishes and dessert are needed. We all had pork sandwiches. Not bad.
