The pulled pork was fantastic! Corn bread delicious. This is a chain. Look for it in your area if you like BBQ.

Food was good, but presentation was even better. Fries and sweet potato sticks were both good. Beans okay - just not as good as my favorite BBQ place at home. Good service even though very busy.

Smokey Bones is fantastic. Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food. This place has awesome deals especially of you look in the newspaper for their 10 dollar off specials.

Our group of 6 arrived on a Saturday night at 7 and had immediate seating. This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and guests receive 10% off. Service was good and could have been outstanding with a little more attention to drink levels and details. My burger was done as requested and flavor was fine but the loaded... More

Good food, nice selections. A little pricey, but still good. Waitress was a little clueless and never checked on us.

Had dinner here on our first night in town. It was a Friday night and the wait was less than 30 mins. Once seated, the service was great and the food was very good. Liked the baby back ribs better than the St. Louis. Roasted corn was very tasty as was the macaroni and cheese. Only negative was the noise... More

This is the second time that we stopped at this place. We were seated right away and had drinks within 5 minutes. We each had different entrees , two of which were combos. Everything was good. Drinks were always full, pace of the meal was good. Save room for doughnuts. Consistently good food throughout the menu and very good service.... More

Stopped for lunch ordered a Appetizer and it was good, for main course I ordered a Pulled pork BBQ sandwich and wife ordered a chicken sandwich. Both of our meals had good flavor and this place has 5 different BBQ sauces on table for different taste buds or for mixing to create your own flavor. Large parking lot and good... More

Family of 3 ate here and all reported good meals. Salads were good, steak was good along with the sandwhich that we had. It is a sports bar, so nothing fancy but we enjoyed it.

We just went there for Father's Day dinner. We had party of five. They were a little busy when we first got there but not overly because our wait was only 10 minutes. We got seated and had our drinks right away. We were off to a great start. I ordered the Smokehouse Chicken off the Father's Day menu that... More
