I was not thrilled to see the words 'Smokey Bones' as a convenient restaurant choice, given I'm a vegetarian. However, the Veggie Burger was just what I wanted, and very tasty. It was very good, and my Honey really enjoyed his Chicken Parmesan burger, as well.

This is one of my favorite places to eat. The variety of choices on the menu will satisfy anyone's taste. You get your money's worth and our server, Elisa is the best. I recommend you go early because the wait can be 45-60 minutes if you wait and go around 7 pm or later. They are not perfect but if... More

We love this franchise: the quality is usually good and consistent. However, they must have had an off-day because both the service and the quality were so poor, we feel generous in rating them as 2 out of 5! Marcus was our server and for whatever reason, he was NOT interested in serving us. The hot food arrived COLD (and... More

This restaurant offers great atmosphere, great service, and the best burgers. There are many variations and all good. Other offerings are also good but burgers top it. Wait staff always friendly and helpful. Price is right.

My criteria for excellent BBQ: CLEAN, inviting atmosphere, decent portions, and a good price. All of these are met by Smokey Bones in Citrus Park. I've tried the other BBQ joints that think that old, dusty, and backwoods-looking equates to great BBQ. Smokey Bones has a mountain lodge atmosphere that transports you away from the palms and beaches to a... More

Great dinner break with family on our shopping day!! Stopped for dinner on our Christmas shopping night. Walked in and our waitress Deanna was wonderful and took excellent care of us! Everything was delicious except for my wings that were raw and my baked potato that was burnt . Our wonderful waitress took both off. Wow! What a great waitress!... More

When it comes to sports, SmokeyBones has a nice setup allowing you to choose what you watch and listen to that specific program. We love going for that reason. The food itself is decent but nothing spectacular and the portions tend to be smaller than usual restaurants that focus primarily on BBQ.

I was in town late and was starving. I happened to be in the mood for BBQ and decided to call here. I was so surprised when they said they were open until 2 am! My kind of people! My friend and I sat at the bar and ordered drinks and ordered our food afterwards. The drinks and food were... More
