If you like barbeque, you gotta go here

I've been to some good barbecue joints in my life, and I'm happy to say that the one in my back yard is up there with some of the best. South Street Smoke House is good enough to compete with BBQ joints in Memphis and St. Louis. If you go for dinner, order their ribs or chicken. The meat is... read more

A great place for slow roasted meat. I had the Kansas City Brisket that came with cheese and two very delicious onion rings. Not much seating so we always get there before the lunch crowd.

My wife and I recently took a road trip and we were traveling down I-65. We did a search for top places to eat in Lafayette and South Street Smoke House came up as one of the options. It is located about 5 Minutes off of I-65 and you will pass just about every chain restaurant you can think of... More

South Street Smokehouse is truly a local eatery. It is close to my workplace so it's a top pick for lunch with a friend. Enjoy flavorful smoked brisket, bbq chicken, pulled pork and a wide selections of sauces ranging from sweet and smokey to hot and spicy. It's a small eatery, tucked away next to the railroad tracks behind a... More

Great place to get smoked meats, smoked in house! Homemade sauces are yummy and be sure to try the brisket!

Best barbecue in town! As a South Carolinian, I cannot recommend the pulled pork. But the brisket (with horseradish), ribs, turkey... Everything else is great! The cornbread is delicious, and the deep fried pecan pie is to die for. Opt for the Kansas City sandwich: brisket with onion rings and provolone.

This is better than average BBQ, but I've had better. The eat in facility is small and can be very noisy. I would go again.

OK... this place is not quite world class barbecue. I've had barbecue of a variety of styles and renown all over the country, and my current favorite is probably Bogart's in St. Louis. For a small town barbecue joint, however, this place rocks. Their ribs shine the most, although their pulled pork, brisquet and barbecued chicken are all good too,... More

We were driving north on I-65 and was lunch time and we really didn't want to stop for fast food, so I saw this place highly recommended on the Tripadvisor app. I'm glad we got there at 11:30 AM, because all the tables were taken by 12. You order the food at the counter and then pick it up within... More

I'd heard good things about this cute hole in the wall. Went for a family celebration, hoping for delicious bbq. I must say, the guys in the kitchen work quickly and get the orders out, which can be a challenge on a Saturday. You stand in line to order, then pay. They call your number when it's ready. Easy and... More
