Best BBQ in town

Smokey joe is the best place to have bbq in town, no needs to go the chain, is fresh and in a small and friendly atmosphere. We are going to miss this place!

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

Smokey Joes does ribs right! Great ribs, great steaks, great chicken, great sides, great service. Plenty of parking, easy to get there, great!

Smokey Joes is a very good BBQ. I have never sat and ate at the restaurant but typically just pick up the food from them to go.

Ate here after seeing the restaurant when driving by. We arrived during the lunch rush and orders were taken fast and filled with a small wait. They have several BBQ offerings; I went with the French Dip which was a large pit beef sandwich with dipping au jus. The pit beef had a great flavor and was more than enough... More

We stopped here on a whim, not quite sure what we were hungry for, and suddenly seeing the sign as we drove by. It was a nice little lunch spot - not spectacular, but a lunch that was tasty and worth the money. I had the three sandwich sampler, with pulled pork, NC barbecue, and pit beef. All three were...

The BBQ is very good at Smokey Joes. I have been several times and never been disappointed with their food.

Strangely, I've lived in St. Mary's County my entire life and didn't try Smokey Joe's for the first time until about two years ago. It's a favorite of my husband's and mine and it's been a great experience every time. First of all, don't expect much in the way of atmosphere. It's super casual and has a little bit of... More
