Great BBQ!

Their ribs are fantastic, as is their BBQ. I like the Taster's Choice platter which comes with your choice of 3 mini-sandwiches and 2 sides (there are 13 sides to choose from). All of their sides are excellent also. Husband loves the ribs and whole chicken. There are weekly specials and a... read more

Stopped at Smokey Joe's for a BBQ sandwich lunch. Fantastic sandwich. The only other thing I could mention was that it was way too much for me to eat at lunch. Highly recommended for good, fast, and price.

Ample parking. Pleasant, helpful staff. The food was absolutely delicious. I mean every bit of it was tasty. Would recommend and will visit again if I am in St. Mary's County.

Smokey Joe's is definitely worth trying for a quick and good meal. We did lunch. I had a NC pork BBQ sandwich and my wife had the taster's choice. So much meat neither one of us could finish it there. And all good. The prices are fair or low considering the quantity and quality. Plus the service was fast and... More

After eating at the other BBQ place in town we decided to try this place. The menu was limited, but the flavor is good. It is a little pricy and indoor seating is tight. Plenty of seats outside in warmer weather.

While visiting the area, I was really excited to try some Southern Maryland BBQ. I opted for this local restaurant over the proven Mission BBQ only a mile away. I will be begin with stating that everyone at this restaurant was very friendly. It was my first visit to the restaurant, but I was treated like family. I ordered Baby... More

This bunch has it down pat. Reliably good (finger-lickn'), traditional stuff-brisket, pulled pork, etc. The sides are just OK-the sliders-gotta try 'em once so you can home in on your fave. The sauces are thin but tasty. Pleasant service, no ambiance-lot's of take out going on here. Go across the street? No, don't waste your time. This place is like... More

Best Q in town, although Mission BBQ is a close runner up. Nice southern charm, small menu, but filling portions.

Certainly not an overly fancy place, but that isn't the draw here. While they are known for barbecue, I had the jerk chicken sandwich. It was by far the largest piece of chicken breast I have ever seen. I took three bites of just meat before I hit the bun which was an average size hamburger-type bun. The meat was... More
