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

My husband and I stopped Saturday night after a long day of travel. It was after 10 PM and we wanted to go somewhere close to our hotel and ended up here. We are sure glad we did. Upon entering we were greeted and asked if we preferred a table or booth. We were seated in a booth. Although it... More

We go to Springfield twice a year for the Flat Track Races and always stay next door at Comfort Suites. So as soon as we check into our room on each visit, we always walk next door to Smokey Bones BBQ. I always get the Pulled Sammy and slaw and my husband usually tries something new each time. WE LOVE... More

Seems like a well managed chain BBQ. Great service from our server. Lukewarm entree was quickly replaced. Will return.
