Liked the name, wanted BBQ, but when I saw it I said " franchise". Went inside, yep, franchise, 8 page menu with everything from AToZ! Ordered ribs, came swimming in syrup, brown sugar, honey etcetera, beans were the same . Ribs very small, but tender. Expensive for the portions. Will look up a mom pop bbq next time?

Food and service was excellent. Amber was my server in the bar area and very friendly and nice. I have never eaten at Smokey Bones before and she told me a little about where they are located and helped me make a menu selection. Planned on eating there a second time but never made it. Would definitely eat there again... More

We ordered carry out and they did a great job putting it all together. I had Alaskan salmon that was very good. My wife had smothered chicken that was excellent as well. It was a very busy place and when we return to Springfield we will stop in again.

We're on vacation and it was getting near dinner time. We couldn't make up out minds about ordering pizza for delivery or going out for pizza or going out for fish or you-name-it. We stumbled on this restaurant searching for local eateries, looked at their website, decided it had something that the two of would be happy with. My wife... More

I got a full slab of ribs and had no chance of eating it all! It was bigger than the plate it came on! They we're fall off the bone, no fork or knife needed!

My wings were burnt, the service was slow....SLOW. I MEAN SLOW. It really was just ok. I wouldn't go back for any part of my meal, but my kids liked their chicken, burger and fries. Eh.

Atmosphere is amazing and the energy of the staff was a great start. Both baby back and st. Louis ribs were outstanding. Mac and cheese was also good. Price is comprobable to places around. Great beer selection and fun place to eat.

Excellent BBQ. We ate there twice while we were in town. We ate the meals with 2 or 3 meats so we could try different ones. They were all good! LOVED the fresh mini donuts with chocolate or raspberry sauce. Had a little issue and the manager made it right.
