Great old building

Had lunch at the Smokehouse USA. Service was quick and the restaurant was very homey. The owner wandered by a few time to make sure all was well. Ribs were excellent.

We found a coupon for smoketown USA and knew a couple that had tried it so we went to check it out. The staff was fun and fairly prompt. Even though the area is a little rough, the clientele was not. The manager checked on us which was nice but he made some inappropriate gestures which left me puzzled. As... More

My favorite is the brisket sandwich and soul greens! Good beer selection and very eclectic decor. Easy drive from just about anywhere.

We visited this out of the way place and it was worth the search. The place was decorated very unique and it Was cool. The food was great with the ribs as tender As any ribs could be. The sides are the real star. Next time I am going order every side. The Q sauce is great and we purchased... More

So many great reviews, we had to stop in. The pork ribs were disappointing to me because of the overcooked, hard crusted meat on the top and bottom. The meat between the ribs was wonderful. They used a delicious BBQ sauce. Their cabbage and greens sides were spicy and well seasoned. Order some pickles. They are worth trying - sweet,... More

Consistently great barbecue. Been there many times now. Ribs, pulled pork, brisket, etc., and all the expected sides. (Stay away from the salty and dry corned beef Reuben sandwich ... my error in ordering it.). Usually pretty busy so prepare to be patient getting your order delivered to your table. The owner is almost always there with a lot of... More

Went with a party of ten. Service was good, owner came out and chatted with us. Food was great - we were able to order a bunch of different dishes and share. Brisket was perfect! Pulled pork, ribs were "only" outstanding. Sides were very good. Restaurant decoration is eclectic and many items are for sale. Highly recommended and we will... More

Great spot for barbeque. Pulled chicken was delicious with mac and cheese and the greens. Yummy and worth the trip. Staff was friendly and service was fantastic!

I live in Louisville and I can think of at least 5 better bbq places in town. Not only is it not the best bbq in town it's not the 17th best restaurant. The meat was good, but the service and sides were terrible. I will not be visiting again. Marks and Mama's are 10x better.

Found this place when looking for "kids eat free". The excellent reviews on trip advisor were all spot on. Hubby ordered the rib basket (was more of a plate) but more food then he could eat. The waitress encouraged him to order greens, which he's not a fan of, and he loved them. I ordered the Reuben and it was... More
