Brisket and wing is the way to go

We frequent this place but this time I tried a different combo. Brisket and wings this time. Brisket was a little dry and had to add sauce and the wings were done to perfection. Our server KellyM was very good, polite and friendly. I highly suggest popping in here if you are in the area.

Seems like a good concept, but it's just poorly implemented and a one size fits all approach doesn't work. Before getting to the food you have buy into the 'sports bar' atmosphere which entails enough LCD TV's to induce some type of electromagnetic damage at the cellular level. You also have to contend with the barrage of loud audio from... More

We stopped at Smokey Bones when passing through the area late Sunday afternoon. Very nice restaurant. Not overly crowded. We both ordered the ribs and were sadly disappointed. We both had to use a knife to work at getting the bones separated which wasn't a good sign. Needless to say the meat did not fall off the bones and they... More

Wow what a great place, service was excellent and our ribs were delicious. Manager stopped and welcomed us to the area, bartender made my day by carding me. Definitely going back!

Have eaten here several times. Service is wonderful! The menu is a little different than other barbeque/burger/steak places. They also have chicken, seafood, and delicious desserts. You can create your own burger, steak, and mac and cheese by adding a variety of toppings. Reasonable prices and a fun experience!

Some friends took us out to eat here a few weeks ago. We loved the décor and our waitress was very friendly and provided us with great service. My wife is not a big BBQ fan, but she loved their beef brisket. I had their rib platter, and discovered that they have a very good barbeque sauce that they used.... More

Everytime we eat here they are so friendly and accomodating. We usually have a large group either two, three or four booths with young children. Friendly, great service and they are wonderful about bringing the kids meals out asap. We also ordered online, had a family member pickup on the way home and enjoy.

It was very crowded when we came in on a Saturday night, we were told it was going to be upwards of an hour wait (understandably so). We made our way to the bar to get a drink and order food to go, in the process of doing such, we noticed many open table tops in the bar. We sat... More

Easy parking surrounds this mall BBQ restaurant. Service is prompt and friendly. Open late hours, rare in this area. Well prepared standard barbecue food with a choice of four barbecue sauces. A pleasant chain restaurant that executes standard fare very well. Noise level is moderate at the table area and quiet on the patio.
