Killer BBQ Lunch

Had a working lunch there this week and came away super impressed with the establishment and the outstanding food therein. My accomplice had a pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw (Huge!!!). He was hungry and devoured the entire thing in record time. I had the beef brisket wrap which consisted of... read more

The pulled pork BBQ Sandwich with two sides was great. The baked beans were excellent and the fried okra was plentiful and fantastic. My wife had the chopped BBQ pork sandwich which she really liked. With baked beans and collard greens. We had fresh made apple pie for desert. Very small restaurant with great BBQ. We will be going back... More

I have been here several times and it is pretty good. The ribs are better than the BBQ but it's always consistent. Service has always been good as well. The place is small so I usually do take out.

Smokin Joe's is a great little BBQ joint in Yorktown. Variety of sauces available to smother your preferred meat. I always go with the pulled pork and the Smokin Joe regular sauce or the sweet & mild sauce. They also have Cajun, East Carolin and Smokin Hot.

Our family has always had a good experience here! Get local BBQ spot to stop along Rt 17. Kids meals are good too! Reasonably Priced.

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!
