We like going out to different places to try all different types of food. Tonight we decided to stick close to home and try a local BBQ place for our Friday night dinner out. What a disappointment ! Our waitress was not interested in actually doing her job. Not only did she never actually bring me the drink I ordered... More

I had the ribs and chicken and both were very good. Not as good as you might get in Kansas City, but really good for western New York! There are a number of sauces on the table and we had fun mixing them and creating the perfect sauce for each cut.

On the recommendation of friends we took the drive out to Batavia twice to eat here. The place certainly is interesting with numerous seating options. Downstairs, upstairs balcony looking down, or deck overlooking courtyard. We made reservations for the deck on a Fri. night when there would be a band playing in Jackson Square. That was fun except for the... More

Our daughters friend really wanted steak, and although there is not a steak option on the children's menu they made one for her at a very fair price! The food was delicious and the... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant is very friendly. The food, on the other hand was not very good. I ordered the 1/4 chicken and it was very small, over cooked, cold and dried out. My husband had the three selections of barbecue. He had ribs, pulled pork, and brisket. The ribs were very good, but the pork was extremely dry... More

We stopped here on the long drive home between Sterling,NY and Youngstown,OH. We try to find local places to eat, not chain restaurants. We arrived on a Sunday night just as they were opening, and we were not the only ones! Within a half hour, the place was half full. It speaks well of a place when the locals practically... More

Had a slab of ribs and the sampler dinner and loved the food. Ribs were moist, and fall off the bone tenderness. Pulled pork was good, smoked kielbasa was great, the beef brisket had great flavor and was moist and tender. The smoked chicken was toughened dry. Beans were good, slaw was good, and the cornbread was very good. Very... More

This is the first time we have tried Center Street Smoke House after hearing good things about it. We found it to be a delightful local place to eat. We were seated immediately and in no time had our drinks and appetizer brought to us. The staff was very friendly and diligent in making sure everything was ok. We chose... More
