While waiting to attend an event at Clark University (less than 10 minutes away), my wife and I needed somewhere to eat dinner. Found this place on the Find Me Gluten-free app and wanted to give it a go. We ordered the combo platter with brisket, ribs and pulled pork. For sides, we got apple slaw and cucumber salad and...

A great meal. Watched Seahawks v Packers. Had a combo plate. Ribs,brisket and pulled pork. Great flavor. Three choices of sauce, tried them all partial to the Kansas City myself. Chipotle chicken wings were really good. Just enough spice and hood size too. Now for the service. It was ok. We sat at that the bar and the bartenders were... More

Have been here a number of times and keep coming back. We have tried other places and have not been as satisfied as our trips to smokestack. We always get the choose 3 option and always get brisket. The portion is disappointingly small but very good. Also, I don't tend to eat meat on bones but I have trended toward... More

My boyfriend and I are frequent customers at the Smokestack...The steak tips are amazing and the garlic mashed potatoes??? Nice and buttery that they are actually SHINING! If you get a drink from the bar, you HAVE to get the signature John Daly. Whether you get it in the middle of the winter or the blistering heat of the summer,... More

My wife and I were looking to explore outside of the Gardner area and try something new. We saw that this place was on phantom gourmet and were in. The place is right off the highway so finding it was no problem. It is not a fancy restaurant by any stretch but doesn't make you uncomfortable either. The food was... More

Nice atmosphere! The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The sides and desserts were excellent. Nice beer selection and signature drinks look good. Try the cheesy grits, fantastic! I've had the beef brisket, the pulled pork, and the chicken. When I go to a BBQ joint I expect crispy succulent burnt ends right off the smoker. The pulled pork was... More

Was shocked when we went to have dinner at the old location and they were gone. At the time we went there was no sign, so relieved when we discovered they had moved around the corner but no parking here!!!!! Have heard they have solved that problem. Anyway food is generally very good. Best fried pickles, ribs are fantastic as... More

Love the atmosphere of this place. They had great music playing. Seemed very clean. Ordered the pulled pork tacos with a side of mashed potatoes. Flavor was awesome however the food was cold. Little bit of a bummer. My boyfriend ordered a half rack of ribs with fries and a cucumber salad. The ribs were delicious. Meat fell right off... More

My daughter and I visited Smokestack in Downtown Worcester after some internet research. We were seated outside as it was a very warm July evening. I was very pleased to find oysters on the half shell on the menu. The ribs were nothing short of amazing ! My daughter had the brisket mac and cheese which she liked really liked... More
