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

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
