Really good que

There brisket and pulled pork are always good. I always love it. My husband says sometimes at the end of the day it can be a touch dry. I don't care, the flavor is still wonderful.

Just finished up a spot of lunch from the South Street Smokehouse. Needed to make this take-away (aka "to-go"). Wanted a good sampling of their offerings, so we grabbed a 3 Meat Dinner with Brisket, Pulled Pork, and Chicken - Collard Greens and Mac & Cheese as the sides. Had several to feed, so we grabbed an additional 2 Meat... More

If you are looking for the best bbq in town look no farther. I am of the opinion that for a bbq place to be good it should be a little rough around the edges and the guy taking your order should be wearing a bandana and kinda look like he just got out of prison. South Street fits all... More

Oh, my...the barbecue is mouth watering no matter what you order. My personal favorite is the ribs with slaw and French fries. Seating is limited, but I usually order take away.

The various items on their "barbecue" menu are very good. I have lived in North Carolina, and presently live in Indiana. It is very difficult to find "eastern North Carolina barbecue" in the Midwest. South Street Smoke House comes the closest in this area at cooking and serving barbecue of this type. Of course, the serve other styles of BBQ... More

Dining in can be a bit crazy. We love to do take out, especially on a warm summer night. Everything on the menu is great and as it should be: messy, messy, messy. Be sure to grab plenty of napkins, although there will never be enough to wipe that smile off your face.

Our experience wasn't one that left us wanting to return. I had people tells me how good their food is. To be quite honest I wasn't impressed. If/when a restaurant smothers their food in a bbq sauce while saying how long it had been smoked is rather pointless (at least to me). How is someone suppose to enjoy or taste... More

We stop here en route to Chicago. Always a reliable lunch (though regrettably closed on Sundays). Professional grade BBQ with a full spectrum of sauces, and all the required sides. Even the slaw is good: not too sweet, not runny. Just the right atmosphere for a BBQ joint without too much Kountry Kuteness.

I love the Kansas City brisket sandwich. I can't even type it without my mouth watering. It's always crowded at lunchtime. I wish they would open another place on the west side!!
