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

We frequently get take-out dinner from Smokin' T's. The food is all fresh, tastes home-made, and is a great value for the price. We just had them cater dinner for a casual party at our home, and the amount of food they provided was HUGE and incredible. All of our guests LOVED it. Their newly expanded dine-in restaurant is cute... More

My wife and I split the Angus short rib platter. It was very good. Juicy and tender, the meat was also nicely seasoned. The Mac and Cheese side was good. There were 3 house BBQ sauces on the table. We tried all three. We preferred the original over a Chipotle, which had a small kick, and the Carolina. Never have... More

I got the BBQ pork sandwich to go and a side of corn pudding which came out to just under $13. The sauce was mediocre, the meat was average, and the corn pudding was sub-par. There are much better BBQ joints in the area. Next time I'll drive the extra time it takes to get to Real Urban BBQ.

My wife and I had dinner here. It was a bit difficult to find, as the parking lot was strange. As soon as you walk in you place your order. Once you place your order you go to a seat at a table and they bring you your food to your table. Smokin' T's Bar-B-Que is a cozy place with... More
