Great spot for late night eats!

We tend to end up here when eating out late night. Always great service even at midnight. Some of the food options aren't always available but that's completely understandable at that time of night!

Smokey Bones has an extensive menu but I always seem to gravitate to my favorite - the Pulled Pork Sandwich. Although I think they have "down-sized" the portion - it is still plenty of food for me and it really is very good. Their coleslaw is creamy and delicious. My date had the Cuban Sandwich - which has become his... More

This was our second time in a few months at Smokey Bones. We had consistent food and service. The loaded nachos are amazing. The smoked wings are my husband's favorite (love the pick 3). The mashed and gravy is homemade and the nutty salad is excellent. Will keep coming back. Attentive waitstaff made the experience A++

Ate with a group of 20 or so attending a conference. We were able to be seated in a private section of the dining area. The service was very good and the food quality was excellent. This was my first-time at a Smokey Bones restaurant but it won't be my last.

Smokey bones has great bbq. We have been there twice now (a little further from home than other restaurants ) but worth the trip! Was much much better the second time around after they added a few other things to the menu!

Since Quaker Steak bit the dust in Baldwinsville for all you can eat wings these guys do it on Monday night's starting at 9pm. No plastic chairs here or parking problems like The Lube though! Beers are substantial for even the seasoned veteran. Staff is fantastic and there is little to no turnover that says a lot about the managers... More

We got fried pickles and the smoked wings to start. The wings were amazing and I usually hate dry rubs. This one wasn't too thick and I loved the flavor. The pickles were amazingly crisp, but oddly didn't have much pickle flavor. We got a few drinks including the pumpkin cider (awesome), dragon slayer (okay, but I wasn't a fan... More

I visited Smoky Bones with my dad. We both ordered the 2 item combo: We both chose pulled pork but he chose the bbq chicken and I chose the beef brisket for our second choice. I was very happy with the way the beef brisket came, in several square pieces with sauce poured on top, instead of slices pulled off... More

We ate here again as a group from work, and once again had another great meal. I had the full rack of baby back ribs, which are meatier and more moist than the St Louis variety. Once again...YUM!!! I also enjoyed the roasted corn dish and the cole slaw. Heck, everything was good, and the service (Elvis) was helpful and... More

We recently travelled to Syracuse, New York and made a point of trying out the Smokey Bones BBQ and Grill in Liverpool, NY. The food was delicious and the service excellent. My husband had a pulled pork sandwich and I opted for a nutty chicken salad. We were particularly impressed with the menu, especially since the number of calories was... More
