Eat until 2 AM

We were running real late and wanted dinner, and everything was closed so we tried smokey bones because they said they served food until 2 AM. I'm glad we did. The baby backs and St Louis ribs were great. Good dessert and even though our server ended up having a group of about 20 show up right... read more

Service bites. Food is usually wrong and cold. Over priced. Only decent thing is the bar. Have no desire to go back.

Went in, was seated, never got waited on. We waited for 15 minutes, waiters walking by, ask are you are waiter. They said I don't no who your waiter is. Place was not busy when they seated us. There were a couple tables with large parties which they seem to be catering to over us. We got up and walked... More

Favorite things: the ability to try the different bbq sauces on my pulled pork. I like the broccoli option as a side and the flavored ice tea. The waitstaff is always friendly and now you can pay your bill at your table electronically.

I ate here during a recent business trip- just sat at the bar. The bartender seemed a little nonchalant about the service and paid more attention to her regulars than the others around them- had trouble getting ketchup and sauces and ended up reaching over bar to get them.. The food was ok - BBQ sandwich was flavorful and the... More

Food was very good! Service was also good. Our first time there. I don't normally order ribs but decided to and I wasn't disappointed. Had the Memphis rub for my ribs. Very good.

I've ate here probably 10 times hoping to get a good meal (Because I love Bar B Q). Of those 10 times I only had one good meal. Bad food and terrible service! I can't believe this chain is still in existence.

Pulled Chicken Salad was very good, although there was a bit too much dressing on it. Service was a little slow, but otherwise an enjoyable meal.

Over the last year we have eaten at Smokey Bones probably three times. Once with a party of 11 so I understand the long wait. Two other times we dined with just our immediate family of 5 and waited on our food for just as long. I can't quite seem to put my finger on the problem. Our family ordered... More

We love Smokey Bones. We do usually go when we have a coupon, because it makes our dollar go further. Staff is very friendly, since we usually go in for lunch. We always get a seat right away. It has a big bar, with lots of TV's and sporting events on. Even though it is a bar atmosphere, there is... More
