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!!!).

Great local BBQ place with big portions and a fantastic Holy Trinity. Get there early if you want brisket. You can even order your smoked / deep fried Thanksgiving turkey. Yum!!

Went with my father for a lunch on the 4th of July. The waitress was very friendly despite having to work on a holiday. She was also very quick and attentive. The brisket was delicious. Very flavorful, to the point that sauce wasn't needed. The fries are served in an adorable basket and heavily seasoned (which I didn't mind) to... 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.

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
