Great BBQ

Smokey Bones is on of my favorite places to go for lunch. We always get the combo where you can pick two meats and it comes with 2 sides. My go to picks are pulled pork and chicken fingers. They have great natural cut fries and their fire roasted corn is delicious. Their are numerous other... read more

This was our first visit to this restaurant. Our group of 2 grandparents and a granddaughter each had the touted Smoked Brisket Sandwich. We were served some mystery meat that was half, yes half, fat on a small hoagie roll with a few peppers and onions. I've had BBQ brisket in at least 5 states and this was not brisket.... More

We used to love this smokey bones, but last few times we were not happy with our food. Ribs were tough. Top sirloin is grizzly 2 out of 3 times. Service is usually very good. Staff are friendly, but the food just hasn't been hot & consistent. Very sad since we are "members". We are going to take another break.

I am not a fan of this restaurant's food; I've given this restaurant 3 tries. It's a little worn (especially the carpet), and I find the tables a bit sticky. I had dinner here last night because my son wanted to play darts. The place was only half or less full, so service was great and friendly. As usual, the... More

One of our frequent favorite places to eat, I have never had a meal here that I did not enjoy. All of the items I have ever tried have been tasty and well prepared. It can get busy at times (they cater to sports fans) and loud, and sometimes the food service might not be as fast, but their BBQ... More
