Usually we either don't go on Thursday or have arrived too late but we made it in time to savor some candied bacon on the house. Got the three meat combo as I normally do, ribs and double brisket. Another great meal but something was off about the cornbread. Normally j really like it but I think they left out... More

The outside terrace has great atmosphere. The indoor seething looked a little like a garage. My pulled pork was a little tough and dry, but the sauces made it more interesting. I would return just for the sides. The cornbread was just delicious. The baked beans were smoky and perfectly cooked. The apple slaw was tangy and crisp. Great service.

Best BBQ in Worcester County, Cant say enough nice things about this place. Love the food, excellent brisket, pulled pork, ribs, the mac & cheese (omg). Great selection of Kraft & regular beers. Try the homemade chips with dipping sauce (sort of milk/blue cheese/bacon) etc, Hard to get into on Friday and Saturday nights. Worth the wait, give it a... More

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 was delicious. Cornbread,... 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
