On the way to a Friday movie with friends, we were going to eat elsewhere in ValleyView shopping center, but the other restaurants had long waiting lines on a cold Friday in January. Just across the street was Smokey Bones with a half empty parking lot. We've eaten there before, so it was an easy choice to cross the street.
Great meal. We were two well traveled couples. The menu includes a full range of salads, sandwiches and full bar-bq dinners. Even though this is a chain, the bar-bq is prepared in house over a hickory fire. My brisket plate was delicious. Good size portions of meat, onion rings and vegetable.
Our servier, Cole, was attentive and earned his tip.
My only disappointment was in their "crafted beer" selection. I was hoping for some locally produced or regional beers, but all that was offered were the national "craft" brands which you can purchase around the country.
We were in and out in less than 40 minutes and all four meals were great.
The tab for my wife and me came to $40.08 including one cocktail and one craft beer.
