“Different from other smokey bones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

I have been to several smokey bones and this one just needs to get with it. The server was great but the food is so inconsistent. It was good yesterday but hasn't been for for months. I sent my ribs back and the next thing I know the female manager brought me a brand new plate and "apologized and said how sorry she was that the first plate was disappointing and that isn't the standard". This is the first time I've had someone come out and care about me and the situation here! Kudos

Waitress was awesome and attentive. took them a few minutes to realize we were at the hostess counter for seating, other than that was overall a very good visit.

“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

After eating healthy food all weekend long, I was excited for a nice steak. Smokey has great steak and their burger is absolutely amazing. Harrison was our server and he was great.

“Bad Chain BBQ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is BBQ from a chain restaurant, and honestly there isnt anything SO bad about that. However, the food is average at best, poor is some cases. The food is also overpriced. Frankly, I don't know how they stay in business. Must be the proximity to a large hotel. Want some ribs or BBQ? Go to Shane's Rib Shack down the street.

“Friendly staff - ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The staff was friendly and efficient. Food is ok - nothing special. Chicken soup had very little taste, pork cuban was good, dessert shots aren't worth the money - just cake in a tiny glass. The staff is the best part of this restaurant!
