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

Smoked wing's, beef rib, baked beans and Spanish rice. The food is great and the spice and sauces are just right. Not to spicy or to much sauce. I'm glad I made this choice.

We had read the reviews for Smoketown USA, so we expected good food, but upon driving up to the restaurant, we were a bit skeptical. The neighborhood isn't great, and the outside looks a bit sketchy (bars on the windows, etc). But once we entered, we were wowed - the inside was fun, artsy and vintage, and the smell was... More

Fell into this FABULOUS little place while on a quick trip to Louisville. We were in love the instant we opened the door ! The smokey scent of whatever greatness was smoldering in the happy little kitchen reeled us on in to sit a spell and enjoy at terrific lunch ( brisket, ribs and Cuban sandwich) . When I say... More

Great little diner in a not so great part of town. Had the best BBQ dinner! Owner was great. Came around and sat with us for a few minutes to see how everything was, where we were from, etc. and told us about how he and his wife started the business. Funky decor. The food was down home BBQ along... More

After reading good reviews of Smoketown, the wife and I had to try it. After all we are good BBQ addicts. Being from VA and NC we love the downeast stuff but have grown to appreciate fine Louisville BBQ too (FABD's, Hammerheads). Sadly Smoketown isn't either one. The meat was essentially flavorless on it's own (ironically no "smoke" at all)... More

Ribs are great. Sides are awful. Friendly wait staff. Strange atmosphere. Should have turned around when we got to the restaurant

My wife and I stopped here for dinner recently. First, I have to say the service was as friendly as we've ever received anywhere. They also did a really good job on the refurb of the old building. The exposed brick and black ceiling work really well. We each had the "Three Amigos", basically 3 sliders, one each of chicken,... More
