The food is good and there is a lot of it. Just don't expect it to be a typical NC BBQ joint. They do serve pulled pork but they also have Kansas City or Memphis style BBQ. I have been a few times and tend to get the brisket or ribs. Both are very good.

If you are looking for BBQ and in this neck of the woods then try it out, food was fantastic, beef ribs cooked to perfection, place has character, little shack, to be honest you would think you were out in the sticks. Place was mobbed with locals even next counties law enforcement turned up for eats. Defo seal of approval.

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 dinner hours.

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
