Great Bbq

Great food and ambiance. Good prices. Plus for kids they've got a tablet on each table for kids to play selected games for $1.99. I had the baby back ribs which was falling off the bone. My husband had the bbq chicken which he couldn't finish. Their Cole slaw and grilled corn sides are fantastic.

After my experience at a small Texas-Style restaurant in Broward county (I won’t name names), I decided to try the Smoked Brisket at Smoky Bones. The ambiance was Chilis-ish but less hectic. The host was nice and directed me to the Take-Out part of the restaurant. No one was manning the register and a handful of waiters and waitresses passed... More

Outstanding BBQ, large portions, wide variety on menu. Beer selections on tap were varied, they even had a Lagunitas IPA special but since I'm from CA that isn't that unique, so I tried a local brew.

Most eateries in this area other than fast food and the occasional diner are closed by 9:00 PM around here. Smokey Bones serves to 2:00 AM every night. Always great discounts via coupons, survey bonuses, after 10:00 menu items and "Bones Club" affinity card. Food is tasty and service friendly. Smoked wings are outstanding.

Visited here for takeout and took right home to eat. Very disappointed as my ribs were so dry and hard I couldn't eat them. The chicken wasn't quite as old tasting but was not fresh at all. Sundays are very busy here so I was surprised that they tasted leftover from the night before. The baked beams are always so... More

I love this chain.. always had very good food here. It is busy so unless you go on off hours you may have to wait for a table but it is worth the wait. The ribs are excellent. Enjoy!

The food was of good value and very tasty but the service was slow. We waited 20 minutes for a server and the restaurant was very quiet. After making an order she disappeared. I'll try it again since the food was good maybe the server was just having a bad day

Went with a friend and we were both disappointed. Two waitresses arrived to take drink order. Second one seemed very put out that ours had already been taken. Took 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive. Never did get our glasses of water. Very slow service. When appetizer arrived after about 30 minutes, it went flying on to the floor... More

Came to the bar to have some good wings, ribs and beer to kill a couple hours. Not even through my wings and the bartender, who wanted to leave early, was cleaning the bar with bathroom cleaner. While I am glad they keep the bar clean, does it have to be done at 8:30 pm and why not ask patrons... More

We stopped here after noticing it from the road as we drove by. Who doesn't like good bbq? Our very helpful and friendly waitress/bartender helped us with our order. I had the brisket and my wife who has to eat gluten free ordered the ribs and we both had a couple of adult beverages. We both enjoyed our meals very... More
