I was in the area looking at Purdue college for my son and stopped here for lunch. My son and I both ordered the brisket and were glad we did. The meat was extremely tender and the barbecue sauce was awesome. If your in the area it's a definite lunch stop. Enjoy!!!

We loved this place! The food was excellent, the atmosphere was unique, and the staff was very friendly. The amount of food you get for the price is amazing! So glad we decided to give it a try.

We stopped by on our way back from Florida, based on trip advisor reviews. It was worth the trip. My husband loves bar-b-que, and while he didn't think it was as good as Smoque in Chicago, he did think it was very good. My girls liked the pulled pork sandwich, and we liked the 3 meat plate. I thought the... More

I was in town for the Fiddlers' Gathering. A group of us had done a lunch potluck and I had some leftover kale salad from Meijers and a couple of leftover pita breads. So I decided I'd like to combine them with some smoked brisket for my supper back in my motel room. The brisket was great, although they did... More

This is where I go when I want to reward myself. You get large servings at a very good price. Rolls of paper towels are on every table cuz it ain't pretty after you start diggin' in. I usually just order the rib tips a' la carte and it is more than enough for me (and I'm a big boy).... More

Tucked away between buildings is one of the finest barbecue houses in the region. Wonderfully smoked and prepared the food is top notch. I tried the baby back ribs, just amazing. Prices are excellent, service is fast and accurate. A must stop for anyone. Seating is limited, but usually not a problem.

I love the smokehouse. The food is great. The atmosphere is warm and homey and it smells like you're cooking outdoors. The BBQ rib tips are our favorite.....mouthwatering. The chicken is also good, and the sides are terrific. Best greens and beans ever!! Prices are very reasonable and I would definitely recommend this eatery to anyone!

Great little hole in the wall. Awesome sandwiches, great selection. Not one flavor fits all on the sauce... There's a good selection and you can try them all. Seating can be difficult when it's busy, as it is seat yourself but they are fast and friendly. Been here several times.

By far the best bbq in town. Everything is good. My favorite is the beef brisket and pulled pork. The building is small but the smells are huge.
