Why Do U Have To Be So Mean?

I wanted to buy 1 pound of the brisket along with a bunch of other items and eat it in their dining room. The "rib nazi" lady said we... read more

Their barbecue and sides are delicious and the place is cute and welcoming. The chicken is so delicious you don't even need sauce. Their sides are generous, eclectic and varied and it's fun picking and choosing with each visit. The staff is very friendly and helpful, there's plenty of seating and it's just a great local place to have a... More

We order out from Smokin' T's at least once a month (which is a lot because we are not a big order out family) and we love it. My husband loves the Angus Beef Sandwich and I am addicted to the Southwestern Chicken and Tortilla salad. The cilantro lime vinaigrette salad dressing is green but don't let that put you... More

Labor Day weekend. Beautiful weather. Fun casual day. Looking for a fun, casual restaurant and I had passed this place while driving a bit away from my geographic boundaries while on business last week and thought I had the perfect pick! The place was cute and while walking from the parking lot, it smelled great! Nice outdoor seating area. Looking... More

Went for lunch and the cheapest sandwich on the menu was a pulled pork sandwich for $9.95, with three pickles slices; nothing else. A side order of cole slaw is $2.50; it was good. The sandwich was good, too, but all in all, this place is way too expensive. Choose another place unless you like to overspend.

We eat in or take out every month from Smokin T's. They have great smoked meat - chicken, ribs, pork, or beef as well as homemade chips that are addicting. For those more health conscience, they have great salads (we love the lime cilantro dressing) and soups, even offering quarts of great soups to go. The kids love their macaroni... More

Great Q with a nice selection of sauces. Come hungry as they have good portions. Great place for groups or families. We have brought our German Shepherd Dog club and judges from Germany here and never been disappointed.

Amazing BBQ, and they get it to your table quickly. The pulled chicken sandwich with the sweet heat sauce is great, and they have my favorite mac and cheese. People complain about the prices being high but I think ten dollars is a fine price to pay if it's for a good sandwich.

Went here with my wife last night, and had a mixed experience. It looks like they do a lot of catering and takeout here, and I was a little confused when I walked in whether to seat myself or wait or order at what looked like the takeout counter. You order at the counter first, then take a number. The... More

Smokin T's is one of our favorite BBQ places in the area. The meat has great flavor and some of the sides are yummy (cornbread, Mac and cheese). We like the different sauces, my favorite is the white sauce served with the chicken. The best part of Smokin T's is that when kids dine in they eat for $.25! That... More
