Mmm...BBQ and Brunswick stew!

Lucky enough to drive by this little place at lunchtime. I travel all over the south, and this is some of the best BBQ in North Carolina. Will definitely be back for more!

This is a great little place to get some North Carolina BBQ. Expect a line because the food and the atmosphere are just that good. They even have pick nick tables out back if you want to eat outside and many people do. You will not be disappointed.

I tell all of my friends and business associates that ask where they can get some real good barbecue, to try Smokey's. I have yet to hear any thing other than great reports from all that tried it.

Hands down, this is the best BBQ in the triangle. It is often tricky to get a table and eat on site, so plan to carry out. All the food is great. The hush puppies are addictive. Be decadent once in a while and go to Smokeys.

If you looking for NC BBQ this is not the place. I will say that the food is good. I love mom and pop restaurants. Place is down to earth, and food is great.

Prime barbecue! From the ribs chicken and pork to the sides! Everything under the bbq sun! The prices are beyond reasonable! The atmosphere is great for just hanging out to family gatherings. Can't find anything within 100 miles that compares!

Pulled in during a visit to NC just because it looked interesting. So glad we did. It is VERY casual - come as you are. Very good BBQ, good sides. The prices are good too. It was packed when we arrived which is also a sign of a good place. Will return again on my next visit to NC!

Great road food eatery. We shared a Sampler plate with additional sides. The pulled pork had a great smokey flavor the 1st sauce was sweet and mild. The second sauce was tart with an after burn of heat. The rib was very meaty and well cooked with a tasty rub. The chicken wings were also flavorful. The pulled chicken was... More

This is North Carolina BBQ at it's finest. Order at a counter, pick up your food thru a window, and sit on picnic tables getting BBQ sauce all over yourself (and the food, of course.) The food is priced right and is some of the best eatin' BBQ I've had. Be prepared to wait if you hit right at high... More
