Good Little Barbecue Place

Stopped by for dinner - had the 1/2 rack ribs, pulled pork and sausage. The ribs are served wet. The sausage was excellent. The pulled pork was average. Overall a good place to eat.

First off, the service here at Smitty's was great for a BBQ joint. Otherwise...the baby back ribs were small and not very meaty. I buy ribs at my local grocery and smoke them myself...the meat on ONE of my ribs makes 3-4 of the ribs at Smitty's. The sausage was grilled, not smoked. I don't think the beef was brisket... More

Smittys is a great bbq joint. The taste of their meats are excellent as you can really tell that all the meats are slow smoked and you can see the smoke ring. Great meats and homemade sides. We will return to Smitty's when in Panama City later this year.

Directly seated, had no wait time. Good atmosphere. Menu was very unique but easily understood. Watestaff was pleasant and very informative. Wait time on order was very fast. Food quality was top notch. First time going and will make this our weekly lunch place. A definite stop in is advised.

Salad bar was good. Not great. Cold baked beans on the salad bar. Lettuce was fresh. Had meat with the salad bar. Chicken had a good flavor and was tender. Pork was good. There were a lot of rules about how many visits to the salad bar, etc.

Had just a short time between meetings and they did a great job of getting us in and out. Becca was a great server and very attentive to refills on our tea. Our ribs were a little dry but had an excellent flavor. Loved the coleslaw and the sweet potato soufflé was more like a dessert it was that good!... More
