Do you want a good hot meal? Do you want great service? Do you want a great selection of drinks? Then you have to try Smokey Bones. We have eaten here many times and the food is always great. The staff is friendly and the service is great. Anytime I have asked for something special they can do it. My... More

Smokey Bones is a good mid-price range rib place. The service is always very good. We like to sit at the bar on days when a game is on. Their ribs are prepared very good, with several sauce choices.

This place will do when in a pinch. I called in my order and the wait staff was courteous and timely in bringing the order out. I got the BBQ burger and fries-nothing exciting but I did read the reviews about staying away from the fish-n-chips which would have been my preference. A colleague had the Caribbean Salad which she... More

Smokey Bones is fun for a family or a couple. I really like the chicken nachos and they have great salads too. My husband and son like the ribs, my daughter is nuts about the cornbread!

I love the pulled pork, beef brisket and fries (double order) and the mustard BBQ sauce. The garlic bread is very good, but too many calories. You can also still enjoy the BBQ by substituting the chicken for the beef brisket, and the baked potato (dry) and broccoli (no butter) for the fries; and it's then low calorie! Afterwards, it's...

I've eaten in and ordered take-out from them. Always good food at a reasonable price. Never had anything I didn't enjoy. Nice, quieter atmosphere most of the time. Good service and they handle special requests quite well.

Smokey Bones BBQ is good beef, nothing special, but very respectable. We have eaten at this location several times. The menu is relatively limited and it's easy in just a few visits, dining with friends and family, to sample everything on the menu. Smokey Bones does allow for building your own burger and picking combo plates. They offer pulled pork,... More

Delicious!!!!!!!!! Took my MSU student and his girlfriend there for lunch... just up the highway from campus. So much to choose from, we had a hard time making up our minds! The pulled pork was great, and who can refuse a loaded baked potatoe? Great atmosphere, too... loved reading all the thought provoking decore!

I went with a large group to Smoky Bones for New Years Eve. We showed up without a reservation, and were seated within a reasonable time. The food was excellent and the service was good too.

We stopped in for lunch, the burgers were a bit overcooked (we ordered medium well and got very well done) and the mojito I ordered tasted like the syrup mix without anything else added. The wait staff was attentive and polite. We were hoping for a really good burger and it missed the mark, but it was better than fast... More
