Excellent smoked chicken, pulled pork and brisket sandwiches. Tried to eat here twice before and always a wait , but Went for lunch time and only about 10min wait . Well worth the wait and the money . Home made baked beans are excellent ,along with everything else and right around $10.00.

I learned about the restaurant from Food Network's Diner's Drive In and Dives! Decided I would visit the next time I was in Brooklyn. Came in with the family for lunch. We were a party of 7. Didn't have to wait long to be seated. I ordered the fried shrimp as an appetizer with a barbecue aioli. It was Delish!... More

Stopped here after the coffee and tea expo. Delicious food. Had the pulled chicken sandwich and my wife has the joint dog with pulled pork. Both were delicious. Worth the stop.

Right proper good brisket here, y'all. I like. You could use some work on your sides dishes, though. But overall, when I want a brisket sandwich, this place is pretty dang good. Decent sauce, too.

Everyone raves about Dinosaur BBQ, but The Smoke Joint definitely one (or two) ups it! Order the pulled pork sandwich and mac and cheese, especially on a cold day.

This place is small and quaint, but has exceptional flavor in its meat. I had the pulled pork which was excellent without any BBQ sauce added. My son had the brisket and it was wonderfully tender and flavorful as well. The seasoned French fries were very tasty. Loved the seasoning on them! The wait staff was prompt and pleasant. I... More
