We tried Smokey Bones when they first opened many years ago. My friends and I agreed that the ribs were meaty, but the taste was too smokey, so we did not return. Taking advantage of a $10 coupon, and kind of remembering a possible change of management, we tried it again on a Sunday evening. Here goes! 1. Tot Tini... More

I visited Smokey Bones for the first time, last Saturday afternoon. My cousin and his girlfriend gave it rave reviews. Upon arriving, we noticed the restaurant wasn't full at all so we figured we would be seated quickly. We weren't even acknowledged until about 5 minutes later but I figured maybe the hostess was busy so I would give them... More

Most people dine there for the BBQ items, however, I prefer the seafood such as salmon. Great food and excellent service. Order the onion rings; they are excellent. However, if you are by yourself, order the appetizer size rings as you will be unable to finish the whole order.

We recently tried this restaurant on a visit to Florida and we were so happy we did. The skillet cornbread is a must try. I had the smokehouse burger which consisted of all the things you would expect (bacon, great beef, fresh produce, crispy onion strings, cheese, and a bun that stands up to the goodies). Two of their sides... More

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.
