A quick bite

Never has been one of my favorite places to eat but its hard to beat a $5 burger on Wednesdays. Located on a very busy stretch of University Drive in Plantation.

Stopped here for lunch. I got the smoked sausage, delicious !! The staff was nice. A good variety on the menu. The value was good. Oh get the warm donuts for dessert. They are worth it

Went to a smokey bones for the first time and I'm sorry to say it was not the best experience. We were pleasantly greeted by the hostess. Then we were seated and noticed that the dining room was warm and getting warmer. It took a while for our server to get us drinks and I ordered an iced tea and... More

I went in the first time and it was a bit unwelcoming, not many people around, and no one around, everyone was around the bar area. So I went that direction, grabbed a seat, it took about 5-10 minutes for the bartender to acknowledge I was there, needless to say the person that was sitting a stool over got irritated... More

I went there as an invitation from my wife who had visited previously with her sister. The food was not bad but left much to be desired. Someone once remarked to me that you can smell aromas from real steak houses and barbecue restaurants once you get out of your car. Of course you can because they have real smokers... More

The food isn't bad it's just average. The service was good the day we were there so I can't complain about that. The BarBQ ribs were not the best. They had a liquid smoke taste.I am not sure if they used that bit it did taste like it

Everytime I talk myself into going, I regret it. This last time I went with a friend and my 4 month old baby. I overheard my server argue she didn't want my table because I had a baby and wouldn't tip her. Seriously? How frustrating and she didn't even greet us. Food took forever. Wasn't great. Pulled pork sammy was... More

We had dined at this restaurant a few times because a couple we go to dinner with like to eat there. We went for dinner with them and had an average dinner. Not bad, but not memorable. Our server was very pleasant and this would have been another average dinner. We received our credit card statement and we were billed... More
