I should have gotten the bbq but didn't know people loved it so much until I saw these reviews. First time for us at a smokey... read more

This was our third barbecue restaurant on this trip and our first experience with this barbecue chain. Food compared favorably to the others, with great service, good food, good desserts.

Me , my husband and my teenage son stopped here for a late lunch on a Sunday. We had buffalo chicken sandwich, and burgers. The buffalo chicken had no buffalo sauce or seasoning and was the smallest piece of chicken ever. A mcchicken would have been huge compared to this. Burgers had little flavor and hardly any of the toppings... More

We have eaten here many times. The RIBS are my first choice. All their selections are great. They have a great selections of Draft beer, as well ad bottles. The hot donuts, for desert are wonderful. We have been here with family and friends. Always a great experience.

We live 200 miles from Smokey Bones but always stop here when we drive through Springfield. We are a rib eating family and we all love the ribs here. Always tender and falling off the bone. Friendly and very attentive staff. Pulled pork is also incredible. Just heard they're opening one soon in the Chicago area... Yeah!!! Hope they're as... More

Surprised, that is the word we all had with this place. We love BBQ and are very picky. This place appears to be a chain, but the food does not taste "chain like". We each had something different; Pulled Pork, Brisket, Sausage and Ribs. The best was the Sausage, the others were just a little behind. If I were to... More

Arrived in the middle of dinner on a Saturday night, but the wait was faster than the 20 minutes they told us. We enjoyed having Todd as our waiter. He was very adaptable as we needed a lot of time to look through the menu and then my wife wanted to change her order after we placed it. He checked... More
