On a trip to Lincoln Library and Museum Unfortunately Smokey was the best part of trip. Museum was a big disappointment but this restaurant saved the trip. Ribs were scrumptious

I've eaten here twice in the last month. The Texas brisket was excellent. The wings, regular ribs and baby back ribs were just ok.

Located adjacent to our hotel, we walked over to grab a bite to eat. The place was packed with lots of people waiting for a table. Rather than wait, we sat at the bar and were promptly served with a cold beer and our meal. We decided to split an order of chicken tenders that turned out to be somewhat... More

Good place to go for bbq and have a cold one to wash it down. The pick two or three entrees is very reasonably priced. If you like chicken, it is very good. Go for the ribs and chicken, you can't beat it.

We had a large group, and the staff was extremely accommodating. The food was good, and our server was great.

Their pulled pork has always been among my favorite. Brisket's good too. Four sauces to choose from. Now they have a build your own mac 'n' cheese entree ($11 I think it was). You can add meat, extra cheese, even toppers like tortilla chips and popcorn! New dirty rice side is not bad either.

We had to wait for about 20 minutes, but not a bad wait time to get a table. They must be well-loved in the Springfield area. The seating was spacious and comfortable. The atmosphere was more sports bar than family setting, although, I'm sure it's great for a group. The waiter ask, "Would you like for me to bring out... More

24 people in our group on a very busy night and all of us were served promptly and with great food. The signiture drinks are a must try.

Never do we go to our local Smokey Bones that it isn't busy! Probably because both the service and the food are excellent, without fail. You can count on their hot wings, ribs, pulled pork, smoked turkey, nachos, salmon salad, chopped chicken salad and mini doughnuts to be among the best you have ever had. We like to eat at... More
