Decent meal, well flavored meat, no stand-outs

My husband and I ate here for lunch on a Saturday. I got white meat grilled chicken, green beans, and coleslaw. My husband got a large barbeque sandwich on texas toast with french fries. The flavor of the meats were excellent. The chicken was dry but this is typical in most restaurants. My... read more

This without a doubt used to be the best BBQ place around.............. thats why me and my wife many times have driven over two hours to eat there. We have been in love with the place ever since the owner took a stand against Sonnys for his Christian Faith. Spring forward to yesterday and that has definitely all changed. Yesterday... More

Great service, fairly good food. Lunch special for $5 (plus a drink). Modest portions. Simple. I would return. Local firemen were eating here, too.

Visiting friends in the area and they suggested we meet at The Smokehouse for lunch. From what I understand it used to be a Sonny's BBQ. I had sliced BBQ on garlic bread with BBQ beans and fries to eat. The service was fast, the BBQ had a good flavor, sliced thin, large sides and drink for the price of... More

This restaurant used to be Sonny's BarBQue. It still has pretty much the same décor. The menu is similar to Sonny's, as well. The big difference is the prices. They are lower here at The Smokehouse. The food itself is very good. My wife and I both had the pork BBQ sandwiches with fries and sweet tea. Our total bill... More

Service was horrible and took forever to get our food. When we did the ribs were so tough they almost pulled my teeth trying to eat them. Sliced beef was cold and bland. The baked sweet potato tasted odd...can't explain it any further than that. Never refilled our glasses. I suppose it was a manager at the register with the... More
