The Big Rib is delicious

We went there with three other couples, the restaurant is crowded, but they still have a personalized service. The waiter went out of his way to explain our options and pointed out some of them that have won awards. We tried the big rib, one for my wife and I, our only regret is that we wished we... read more

Sounded like a gimmick, but darned if it wasn't. In brief the flavor of vegetables as well as meats was equal to the incredible aroma on entering! Smoke flavor, subtle at times and daringly strong in others is well worth the visit and worthy of the name. Of course we will return.

I got the ricotta blueberry pancakes with a side of pork belly "bacon". Fantastic. The pancakes were super rich and tasty, and the pork belly was thick and smoky. My only regret is that I was here alone and couldn't get the brisket hash. Smoke has a great atmosphere that mixes old school Dallas with a fancy BBQ joint. I... More

I had a fantastic meal here. I'm not a fan of bar-BQ but my ribs were so good and the desserts were something special.

Smoke was recommended by a work colleague and I couldn't thank him enough for the suggestion. Smoke is in an off-beat location just south of downtown, but it was well worth the hunt. Great creative drink choices. The beet appetizer was good and a nice compliment to some of the heavier food. We all couldn't resist trying the coffee crusted... More

Booked a dinner table for 11, and Smoke was very accommodating. Appetizers were interesting and tasty. I would definitely recommend the pate and the pimento cheese balls. I had the spare ribs for my entree, and I have to say that I was disappointed. The ribs looked good, but were dry and heavily smoked. Adding sauce helped a little, but... More

I enjoyed Smoke. I do not think I need fusion in TX. Blue Cheese cole slaw. What? Anyway, the meet was good and the restaurant smells like they smoke meat the slow way. The wine and beer are expensive.

Great smoked turkey and pulled pork. Assortment of sauces to choose from. BBQ fries are fabulous! Service is exceptional. Kitchen was kind enough to tweak our selection ( no buns) and individually presented the toppings in separate containers.

This was some of the best BBQ I've ever had. My two friends and I ordered a few entrees and shared them. The Pulled Whole Hog and BBQ Spare ribs were out of this world. The Mac & Cheese and fingerling potatoes were amazing as well

I met friends here since some of us were visiting Dallas on the weekend. What a wonderful surprise. The food was so yummy (I had the Eggs Benedict with BBQ) and so were the Bloody Marys. Others were raving about the pancakes and the brisket. We had brunch and there was a wait, but everyone was very friendly. It's a... More
