More Than Ribs

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

I was in the mood for barbeque and so we went to Smokey Bones. I ordered the spare rib and brisket combo. My dinner arrived and half of the brisket on my plate was fat. I cut it all away and the remaining meat had no smokey taste to it at all. It certainly was not barbeque except for the... More

The facility needs a good overall cleaning. The food is mediocre, the service was indifferent. We (3 adults) were there for a celebratory dinner and found it very disappointing. Iced tea was served without lemon. My son requested water with lemon that arrived without lemon. We asked for beverage refills once which were delivered, then another round was delivered-at the...

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
