Good bbq

Delicious bbq and sides. No wait. Downsides: The temp in the restaurant was freezing. The parking lot did not appear to be cleared from ice and snow. Very slippery. Most of our group parked cars out on the street as they couldnt get in the lot.

You may come here to eat the delicious BBQ but you will leave here knowing how to prepare luscious foods. The owner visits every diner in the establishment and seems genuinely interested in the customers. He visited me twice and when I asked for an explanation of how he prepared his ribs he disappeared into the kitchen, came out with... More

Found this little place off the beaten path and what an amazing meal. The sampler is a carnivores dream. What a feed of amazing food.

There are few things in life that bring people together more than food. And BBQ might be the king of all food. I can't even write this without my mouth watering like a, well, like a hungry man's mouth in front of a BBQ joint. While you don't get the valet parking and the live string quartet, Smoketown USA is... More

Excellent service. Great food. The staff was friendly and didn't try to rush you out the door. The brisket sandwich was fabulous. The cabbage salad was better than what my grandma used to make. Give this place a try you won't be disappointed.

Great BBC. The sides are ALL good. Delicious fish fry on Fridays. And Eric, the owner/chef/host is the sweetest guy you'd ever wanna meet.

A little off the main drag near downtown Louisville, this renovated restaurant offers Smoked everything! Our group tried several including Beef Brisket, Smoked Chicken, Pulled Pork, Wings, and for our Vegetarian, a Portobello Sandwich. Love that the many sides are mostly vegetarian as well. Soul greens offer a kick without additional hot sauce! Cheesy Mac n Cheese and both the... More

I have travelled around and always try the local cooking. Having been to many BBQ places all over the south though I would give this a try. Boy were we surprised. This place knows their stuff! Everything we had was great! If you are near the area this place is a must stop! Don't cheat yourself and go somewhere else... More

In a nondescript though inviting corner location off the beaten path lies this wonderful little gem. Step inside, find yourself a table, a get ready to enjoy some delicious BBQ. We all chose the half rack of St. Louis ribs each of which came with two sides. I loved the greens which had just a touch of heat. The cabbage... More

Its not often that I try something new that is so good that I curse out-loud when taking the first bite. When we tried to pick up the ribs by grabbing the end of a bone...it slides right out and leaves the big hunk of tender rib meat just laying there. First class ribs and the sauce is so good... More
