Had a desire for ribs

Recently had dinner at this restaurant and was very pleased with both the service and the food. The ribs were amazing in flavor, the onion rings, the cole slaw, one of the best meals I have had in months. Try it you will enjoy it

Was on a business trip and happened upon this place and decided it looked pretty good. The ribs were some of the best I have ever enjoyed will definitely be stopping in Smokey Bones again!

We're on a roll with the Smokey Bones in Citrus Park. To insure that we have a great experience, we just ask for Tammy as our server. The food that comes out of the kitchen is always great, and Tammy completes the dining experience. All of the items which are needed to truly enjoy eating barbecue, appear at the table... More

It is a chain and therefore it is usually reliable. It is a big place and took no time for us to get seated. We have eaten in this location twice before and the service has been always good, now it is faster with the little computer to call the server/pay. My favorites are the pull pork and the ribs...

This was a normal chain restaurant that had a nice clean looking area with stylish decor. Our waiter, AJ, was excellent and actually seemed like a professional in the hospitality/service industry. Way better than expected. The food was of average quality. I'm perfectly happy with average as by definition that's the quality of most of the food I eat at... More

I went with family for lunch and we all ordered a variety of items. The fried pickles are uninspired and served with ranch dressing. the fries and garlic bread served with my bbq pork were not crisp. That said the bbq pork was good and the beer was cold
