“Best BBQ EVER!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Smokin' J's is fabulous! You can't go wrong with anything you order-it's all delicious. The Ranch beans are so flavorful, the potato salad is better than any I've ever had. The service is extremely friendly. They have a hot sauce and a sweet sauce, and both are terrific (I like mixing the two - YUM!!). The prices are very affordable for the quality and quantity of food. This is a "words can't describe it" kind of place - you have to experience it for yourself. You will not be disappointed!!!!

“Awesome Texas BBQ-Great Sauce, Ribs, & Cole Slaw”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We've been going to Smokin' J's Real Texas BBQ in Gulfport for about 2.5 years and love it. They have well priced Ribs, Pulled-Pork, Brisket (all your meat favorites) and side dishes such as Cole Slaw (this is perhaps the best Cole Slaw I've ever had)-it has an addictive flavor that wants you to eat more. They also have good pot. salad and baked beans. We had Smokin J’s also cater one of our family events and they did a great job organizing the event, being on time, and providing great quality food.
