Wonderful!

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... read 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

Best BBQ in Central Massachusetts! Down-south atmosphere with extensive BBQ food options. The BBQ aroma hits you as you enter there restaurant. Food did not disappoint. I had the Pulled Pork dinner while my wife ordered the ribs. Both were very good. A large selection of beers on tap. TJ, our bartender, was personable and prompt. Affordable Saturday night out....

First visit and we were looking forward to it! Friday night, 6:30, no wait so off to a good start. Our waiter, Dave, was great - attentive without being overbearing. Our son (9) is a VERY picky eater and ordered a hamburger off the kids menu. Our daughter (12) ordered the pulled pork sandwich from the regular menu. Both earned... More

I wasn't really thinking BBQ in Worcester. Gave it a try and sure glad I did. Fun bar area with high tops or dining room in back - we chose the front. Friendly staff and good service. I'm not a fried pickles fan but these got very good marks by my mates. Wings were crispy and tasty. Brisket done very... More
