This informal BBQ restaurant has everything it takes. Not a large menu but streamlined for BBQ realist. Ribs, pulled pork, and brisket plus the main sides. If possible go on Friday for the burnt ends. They are KILLER!

I went back twice. I couldn't help myself. It was mouthwatering, simple, fantastic food. Just as BBQ should be.

great bbq sandwich. Beef was great. Nice place to visit and staff was exceptional. Great smell from the outside that invites you into the establishment. Check times because a couple of days they close early

Food and service was excellent! Didn't care to much for potato salad. Didn't really have a taste. But everything else was great!

The sides that I tried, including the beans and slaw were delicious, excellent accompaniments for the fantastic dinner. For dessert we had the banana pudding - simply perfect. We spoke with... More

I like barbeque, but usually I don't pay much attention to it, it's all okay. So when I heard that Smoking Gold was really good, I thought, yeah, fine, I'll try it. Well, it really is very good! The sides are good, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Okay, I am a BBQ snob and I admit it. We try BBQ places all over the place, and do it often. This place has a great downtown location, is nice if you are visiting and walking the area, and just need a BBQ fix. Staff was very nice and attentive. It has okay BBQ, and okay sides. They do... More
