The big Rib was very good and was shared between two of us after appetizers. All of the dishes were outside of the norm...ex: the pulled pork was a pullled pork... read more

We had the ribs and the brisket and it was very good. I like a lot of smoke in the meat and it was perfect. It had a good rub and sauce.

I attended along with a larger party, we sat indoors, there was enough snow outdoors to make sitting outdoors an untenable proposition though i could see it being pretty vibey in the summer! The exterior is unassuming but inside it is warm and inviting. Staff are knowledgable and attentive and there is a good variety of beer available. As a... More

The style of this place is not typical Texas bbq. They have matched meats and sides, instead of choosing a meat and sides as one pleases. My daughter had the cabrito in masa, which was good but the portion small. I had a combo of ribs, pulled pork, and beans. The ribs okay, the pulled pork mushy, and the beans... More

Overall, I enjoyed my meal, but I'm not sure this would be my first choice for barbecue. I enjoy the ambiance of this restaurant. It has nice soft lighting and the tables weren't too crowded together. The wait staff was fantastic and very knowledgeable. I got ribs which though tasty were much drier then I would have preferred. My companions... More

Well thought out menu. True TEXAS cuisine but the way BBQ has blown up they need to step up their game. I know they're never going to be Aaron Franklin but if you're gonna call yourself "SMOKE" then learn how to SMOKE meats without drying it out. My wife had the brisket, I tried the pork chop and both needed... More

I've been in Dallas for totally 4 days - spent two nights in the new Smoke restaurant in Plano. Really liked the atmosphere, on Friday night the restaurant was packed, we had to go and eat late at around 10.30pm. Although the place was busy the staff were doing a great job in the front and the back of the... More

We had awesome brisket and pork ribs with yam and potato salad. Service was great. We are coming back with the kids for brunch and try breakfast items.

If you want a good atmosphere and fantastic food, go to Smoke. The restaurant is a half way between fine dining and a pub. The food was absolutely phenomenal. The short ribs, amazing. Beef brisket is tender. The Big Bone BBQ. Huge. All the BBQ was moist, cooked perfectly and just amazing. The BBQ was so good, it took away... More
