Average Sums It Up

Decent enough place - easy access to the LIE. Not much to complain about here - but not much to rate above average either. 1 order of ribs came out a little too cool to enjoy - but they made good on it when that was brought to the waiter's attention. One of my measures for a bar is their... read more

Picked this place for dinner...well because it's BBQ. It was good. Service was on the slower side, but really wasn't an issue since the food was good and we weren't in a hurry. Pulled pork and ribs were great!

Shout out to this sandwich....I ordered it two nights in a row as I was staying at the hotel next door. Good sauce, nice char, big place, music not too loud, all good.

Great idea looks good. Dirty and not well run. No management oversight seems like a bunch of kids running the place. Menu choice and food quality needs work.

Never had a bad meal or poor service. My one daughter lives in Texas and I would match Smokey Bones to the Texas BBQ. The only problem is if you arrive at the wrong time the line is enormous, the wait is long and there are no reservations.

We went in around 8:30 on a Friday night, we just arrived at our hotel and we walked acoss the parking to the restaurant. It was busy and we did wait at our table for awhile to get service. I believe they were short handed that night. We did have a nice meal and comfortable atmosphere. I would definitely recommend... More

I only get here at lunch, but they do a decent job, though sometimes it can be a little inattentive on service. The food is fine, probably nothing that special. The meat quality doesn't seem that great. They do have a gluten free menu.
