Typical (and good) american bbq restaurant. They are supposed to be famous for their smoked wings and I think they deserve it. Service was quick and good. A good option in Plantation.

Food is good. Wait staff is good as well. If you order for take out sometimes I have had to wait a bit. Take out staff is usually flustered and not so friendly. But wait staff inside to eat is wonderful

went to the one in Orlando, had a great experience. Tried this one (in plantation), totally opposite...bad service, mediocre food. Thought it might have been an off night..went back a few weeks later...nope same crap service and crap food. Will never use the "points" card we signed up for...really disappointing

I had lunch at the Smokey Bones in Plantation yesterday and the food was very good. Even they are noted for their BBQ ribs, chicken, burgers, wings, I always order the grilled salmon and it is terrific. Comes with 2 sides and you can order the onion rings as a slight up charge but well worth it.

Eaten there several times and found it just okay. The ribs are pretty good but found the whole place expensive for what it is. Not my first choice in the area.

The wing appetizer was crispy. The chicken was tender. The ribs were meaty. The veges were not overcooked. Service was attentive. I'd come back ... soon.

Server was excellent but the restaurant is filthy, the men's bathroom was beyond disgusting and the food was not edible. Had the BBQ chicken and I honestly think it would have bounced if thrown on the floor. Speaking of the floor, there was a waitress walking around with a towel under each foot and sliding along and cleaning the floor.... More
