Horrible customer service!

My party of 12 reserved the private backroom for my birthday party. The restaurant double booked the room and when the other group showed up, after we had already been seated and ordered food and received our drinks, the owners daughter stormed in and told us that we had lied to her and that we... read more

Service is good. I've had better BBQ elsewhere. I didn't have the opportunity to partake in the salad bar, but it looked pretty good.

Ordered the full rack baby back ribs. Very dry. Seemed like they were cooked yesterday. One other thing, any Chef/Cook in his right mind will know that you DON'T/ DO NOT leave the membrane attached to the bone side of the ribs, it ruins the ribs. Seems the cook has no clue as to this simple task. Salad bar was... More

My husband and I love Pokey's. The salad bar is yummy with a lot of options. We always order the BBQ brisket sandwich..... so delicious! The waitresses are always friendly and prompt. Good value for great food.

Pokey's is a great place to go for some good BBQ. The salad bar is amazing and the service isn't too bad either.

I love bbq so I was excited to try Pokeys. The salad bar was great and the sides were different from the usual fries and coleslaw but the bbq itself was just average. For the price, I expected better. On a positive note, the atmosphere was nice and the service was good.

We stopped here for lunch today and really enjoyed the food and drinks. My brother had the buffalo burger and I had the pulled pork plate. Also we both had sweet potato fries.

I may have to move here so that I can continue to enjoy Pokey's. We ordered the platter for 2 and enjoyed all of it. The ribs especially are tasty. I like that the sauce is on the side so that you can add what you want. The wait staff were great about refilling my tea. They also have exotic... More

My husband and I shared a BBQ plate with smoked turkey, brisket, pulled pork, and babyback ribs, for sides we had fried green tomatoes and baked corn. We got homemade chips for free, the homemade sauce was all delicious and the BBQ was the best we've ever had...and we've eaten BBQ in Memphis, Kansas City, Texas...all over the place really....
