Nice salad bar to go along with great BBQ

When traveling and eating every meal out, it becomes difficult to feel like you are eating a well balanced meal. The salad bar at Pokey's was great for offering a bit of greenery back into my life. Three of us had the salad bar and we split one Brisket dinner. The Brisket was very good. We... read more

Great sauces and the home made chips they serve you are very good. Sampled the ribs, pulled pork, and brisket. Although they were all OK, didn't get any smokiness in the pork. The brisket had good flavor but was sliced way too thick. Friendly service.

One word-AMAZING! The folks at Pokey's provided us with 3 catered meals while in town putting on a concert recently. The owner and his daughter were both in and out all day to make sure every need was met. The food was unbelievable! They were so thoughtful that they surprised us with additional exotic meats to try along with our... More

Great barbecue public atmosphere was busy but the staff in a timely caring fashion. A lot of folks say that they make brisket but a lot of times it's really not. In this case it's the real deal with good smoke ring good smoke and excellent bite. My sauce was on the side as I like it and was savory... More

In town for the week with family and decided to try Pokey's. We were very pleased. Incredibly friendly and attentive wait staff. Food was delicious. We started with the ample and fresh salad bar and moved to incredible ribs and bbq'ed meat. The pork and brisket were big favorites. We will be back!

I enjoyed my brisket, but my wife ordered the smoke turkey and it was more of a turkey loaf. Not appealing in taste or presentation. Not sure if we would recommend.

First the good: they have good old Southern sweet tea! My sons loved their buffalo burgers, the beans and the slaw are amazing!!!!! Now the bad: the pulled pork is completely flavorless. It might as well have been a pile of rubber bands. The service was so slow, if we had not already had drinks, we would have left.

We stopped in for dinner one night. Our server was very friendly. Menu is pretty extensive, but I thought some of the selection was a tad pricey. They had a kid's ribs meal, which I thought was neat. I had pulled pork, which was decent. My barbecue baked beans were also good. I definitely don't recommend the fried green tomatoes.... More
