Amazing and worth checking out

What a find! We shared a six person table with another 2 person group as we wanted to be outside and hear the music. On Thurs they have mapleized bacon as a table treat - delicious. We ordered Hurricanes which had a nice kick; for food we tried the brisket and spare ribs. EVERYTHING on our plates... read more

Wow, excellent BBQ, great taste, service was right on and the weekday special tonight is the candied bacon!! 3 very good sauces, only suggestion would be to add a spicy BBQ sauce to the menu. Had the kitchen sink, another had the Cuban, both I recommend! I need to come back and try more dishes! PS the redneck Sunday with... More

I had the combination plate, everything was fantastic, but the mac 'n' cheese was the best I have ever had. The ribs were tender, pulled pork was nice and the smoked chicken was good.

My fiance and I recently moved to Worcester. We have been on a now 4 month long expedition to find and try every top rated restaurant in Worcester. We love going out and have a long list of places to try. We have been around the block, but our absolute favorite, and weekend go-to is Smokestack. Anytime someone new comes... More

The food and atmosphere here is A+. Smaller than their original location, so sometimes the wait is long. Thursday finds FREE candied bacon at the bar area; this ALONE is worth the trip! Favorites include Louisiana Fry (yummy oysters), brisket, and smoked chicken. Very friendly and efficient staff.

Crowded restaurant, happy diners, good ambience. Yet our dinner was disappointing. Presentation was tantalizing, but when we started eating my enthusiasm faded. Fish tacos weren't so great, salty ( I don't use much salt, so I'm sensitive).cornbread wasn't warm or tasty, fries were limpid and not hot, bbq was a rub and not sauce. Thankfully the BBQ beans were tasty.... More

Was in Worcester for the evening and decided to check out Smokestack. I wish we lived closer! There was a 45-minute wait, but we managed to grab a table in the bar and were able to eat sooner. Our server (who's name I, unfortunately, can't remember) was lovely. Explained the menu, offered suggestions, and was just great. The food was... More

Great place to eat - great food BUT they really need to rethink their hours... Went there last night at 8:15. Closed for food - we were told they were on winter hours. Yes - yesterday was May 10th! Newsflash - winter ended a long time ago! BTW - people still eat at restaurants in winter. This isn't a golf... More

The food here was amazing. We live a little over an hour away from Worcester, but after trying it when we were in the area we decided when we want BBQ its worth the drive. Every bit of food I tried there was amazing. We also bought a big container of the BBQ sauce to take home with us and... More

This is a great place and much more fun than the old large location. Their wings with honey habanero sauce are the Best in central Ma and the bbq Mac and cheese is worth the trip alone. Corn bread is excellent and they have a great selection of beers as well. Just a great place with excellent service with a... More
