This is no frills but the food was great. I tried the combination brisket/pulled pork platter. The brisket was a little dry but still good. Portions are generous and the price is right. It is a busy little place and obviously very popular. Parking can be an issue during the peak lunch and... read more

We love Smokey's!! The food is amazing, the atmosphere is a phenomenal crack-up and the owner is pretty awesome! On our most recent visit, I had my hands full with 2 little ones and he gave me a free side for my toddler AND carried it all out to the car for me!! You've got to try it out, you... More

I was driving back from picking up something for my daughter when I noticed as I passed Smokeys that the parking lot was full of cars. I drove past and being from out of state and seeing all the cars I thought something must be good there and pulled a U turn and went back. The place was filled with... More

I'm not from the USA but I do travel in your amazing country often. Clients wanted to take me to Smokey's and I loved it so much that we went back later that week and a few months down the line I'm back in Raleigh and could not resist an outing there. If you're going for lunch during the week,... More

Stopped in after checking out trip advisor. Tried the sampler, everything was great. All the meats were moist and tasty. Sampled local beer, which hit the spot. Sometimes simple is best and this is one of those times.

This place never disappoints and the price is unbelievable. I've tried almost all of the BBQ meats on the menu and have never left feeling like the food could have been any better. The sweet potato tots were out of this world! Beware, around lunch the line at this place can be out the door, but it is always worth... More

Good BBQ, I especially like their beans. Restaurant is really busy during lunch. My suggestion is to be there around eleven am or one pm.

First of all, the lady (whose name I failed to get) at the counter was extremely friendly and helpful! I told her it was my first time in, and she suggested the sampler and I'm glad I listened. It came with a large rib, 2 wings, pulled pork, brisket, hush puppies, and another side (I chose mac and cheese). All... More

Had lunch at Smokey's yesterday and it is exactly what a BBQ joint is supposed to be like. It is a non descript place on the side of the road with seating for about 30 so expect to wait at busy times. Their BBQ was really good but the brisket was a little dry. I'm not a fan of plastic... More
