Went to a wedding where Smokin' Joes did the catering, and it was good food. The pulled pork sandwiches were good, the ribs were okay. The chicken looked and smelled awesome, but I didn't want to be a pig, so I didn't try it. The garlic mashed potatoes were excellent and the cornbread is awesome. I'm sure it's difficult to... More

Wife and I stopped while out on the motorcycle. It took us 45 minutes to get our food. That would have been fine if the food had been worth it, but it was average. We both had a BBQ sandwich, and none of the sauces (we tried them all) impressed. The waitress was nice enough, but our cups were empty... More

We had a coupon but the pricing is good anyway. Lovely staff served us the most superb burgers we've ever eaten! This is more like a cafe but it is very homely, with family photos all around!

Popped in to Smokin' Joes (in Yorktown, VA) on a whim just'cause I had a craving for bbq. Being from Texas and having lived all through the south I do know what I like when it comes to meat so I ordered their Unlimited Feast consisting of a pound of smoked pork and some baby back ribs along with baked...

This is where I go to get pulled pork sandwiches;my husband comes for the ribs. Good, smoky deliciousness with every bite. The array of sauces allows you to customize your plate;ranging from classic North Carolina vinegar-based to Kentucky sweetness, you can tailor your meat to suit your taste. The sides are great, too, with the coleslaw and hush puppies being... More

Co workers and I go there for lunch pretty often and it never disappoints. It's not the cheapest but it's delicious and not just the BBQ, the chicken is fantastic as well! All the sandwiches and sides are great and the girls who work there are always super friendly and welcoming. It is quite small inside but we've never had... More

Was looking for a place for dinner after a day at the beach and decided on Smokin Joe's. glad we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. I ordered he 1/2 ribs/ chicken combo and was not disappointed. I forget what the rest of he family ordered but they also were very happy with their choices.

Something must have changed here since the earlier reviews were posted. We were passing through at dinner time and ate there with my grandson. I think I'm being charitable when I give even a poor rating! I ordered the two meat special ($10.99 +/-) with the pulled pork (not the worst I've had) and the "pulled" beef brisket (which was...
