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

Ask any local, this place is awesome. The staff are a friendly bunch of guys that busy their butts to get you fed and back to work ASAP. They get it. The food is consistently delicious. Catering with smokey joes is a breeze. I hope they have much success.

This is a great place for all types of BBQ including pork, chicken, and beef. They also have some great specials during the week such as beer can chicken, spaghetti, and beef burgundy. This is a small hideaway, but can fit family and friends for a small party or group. Also serves chili, soups and desserts.

So far I have had the sliced beef and sliced pork sandwiches with slaw. Both were good. I like the jerk bbq sauce. The corned beef is excellent. Not as much meat on the bun with the corned beef but I understand since it a more expensive cut of meat.

It's a local place but the portions were small and food average. I like BBQ and this place seems to get a lot of hype but performance was average. (I was disappointed especially since BBQ is not cheap).
