It is hard to beat a first impression. Our first was no one to greet us. You have to have at leat 2 people there in a place this size. Impression 2 being lead to a booth with a chusion with a couple of rips in it that were paper thin and uncomfortable. Service was great and food was tasty... More

I am normally an easy going guy. My fiancée and I went to SB for a drink and some light food at the bar. The bartender, a young lady came over after about 15 minutes of waiting and said, Sorry it took me so long to get over to you, this is my first day, and the manager left me... More

Stopped in early on Sat. night. Waited 20 min. which didn't bother us. We looked around & saw in our section alone there were more than a dozen empty tables & booths. At least a 1/3 of the tables & booths in the place were empty & yet they were making people wait to be seated. When our food arrived,... More

Not fond of chains, but this is a consistently decent meal at a reasonable price. Stick with the sandwiches and burgers. Pasta dish is alright too. But the salad dish is a no-no. Service is a little quirky at times. I know they train the staff well and make effort. But the waiter who sat down at our table with... More

Stopped in for dinner and tried the combo with ribs and pulled pork. Very good! Choice of three sauces are all yummy. Had a nice wheat beer and ate way too much. Highly recommended!!

Had been to a smokey bones BBQ before and always enjoyed it. It was especially busy and slow the night we went. Manager was very apologetic and ended up taking two entrees off our bill and offering us free dessert. The hot bag o' donuts is the way to go. Delicious. I'd go just for the donuts. Love it!

Saw Smokey Bones & had to eat there. The one at home is the best and everyone I take there returns with their friends. The waitress just stared at him with his accent. I translate that he is having everything I order. So we both will have the Baby back ribs, baked beans & celery seed cole slaw and iced... More

This is the place for BBQ when you are looking for a sit down restaurant as opposed to a small BBQ stand. What makes this place stand out are the sauces. On every table are 4 different types of BBQ (Chipotle BBQ, Carolina Mopping Sauce, Mustard BBQ and Sweet & Tangy) so there is something for every type of BBQ... More
