Very good restaurant

Excellent spot for drinks and tons of meat. Outstanding pulled pork, brisket, ribs and sides. Sauces are excellent. Bar service a little slow, but otherwise great.

My wife and I came here on a Saturday morning, and I may like this place now more for brunch than for dinner. Good fresh coffee, and my wife was quite happy with her mimosa. My egg-white omelet packed a lot of flavor - mushrooms, pulled pork, and a heavy dose of wonderful goat cheese. We've been here a couple... More

Service was fair. Took over an hour to get our food. Food was way over cooked. BBQ fries were tough as a boot. I found the food quality to be very low quality and way overpriced. Would not go back!

Went on a Saturday and it was pretty busy. We sat at the bar while we waited for our table. The bartender was unfriendly and rude. Seems like she had an attitude like she was working at the hottest club in NYC, not a bbq restaurant in Dallas. This is my reason for the rating, aside from her everything else... More

Recommended by our waiter, being our first time, we shared at the table the board of combined meats and we loved it.

get the scallops. they were quite fabulous. and the bartender should go in to sales. he was so upbeat about the restaurant. only downside? it is the restaurant for the belmont hotel and it doesn't open until 8 am and it doesn't have wifi. in my view, those are must haves for a restaurant that services a hotel where there...

Mimosas were excellent. I had the Pulled Whole Hog BBQ Eggs Benedict with Goat Cheese Potato Cakes, which were very good. My friend had the Smoked Brisket Cornbread Hash with Poached Egg & Green Chili Rajas, which he said was excellent. We visited on a Sunday morning, and I noticed there was no wait time to get a table until... More

I've been wanting to visit and am very glad we came. I had scallops served over a pea and cabbage salad. Very tasty! My friend had the roster chicken and he enjoyed it very much. Both entrees where 24 each.

Expect a wait for the excellent brunch at this Oak Cliff destination. The food (and drinks) are amazing and worth the trip. The atmosphere is lively, the clientele diverse. Recommend Smoke's take on Eggs Benedict and the blueberry pancakes. Also, the Bloody Mary.

I was working in Dallas for a week and ate here often. The food is good but I would fire the managers and most of the staff for having bad attitudes. they think that they are SOOOOO COOOOOL, but they are so not cool.
