“Not a place for a vegetarian but the jazz show was amazing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We went to see a jazz show a few days ago- the menu is not so vegetarian friendly (Dah I know, it's a BBQ place... Should have checked that out) so if you are a vegetarian check the menu before. And go see the jazz show it was amazing :)

“BBQ Ribs Palace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Very crowded at dinner. Bar is a social attraction. The St. Louis fried ravioli is yuck. KC style ribs are the best. Also Texas style, big beef type and also Memphis style with mustard are offered. Very noisy but good for families.

“I miss my Pappy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Always consistent and very good quality barbaque. Kansas City BBS ribs are the best ones to get. However, i am a little sad. they no longer carry their special batch Pappy Van Winkle.

“Great Food, Great Music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Once you walk in, you'll get hooked on the BBQ aroma. Though there may be a wait time for seating, it is well worth it. I have come and returned many times to Blue Smoke. Great for friends and family, with live music in the basement. The Chipotle Chicken Wings are a must-try!

“"Rare Miss"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I visit this location of Blue Smoke regularly and the food and service are always excellent. On my last visit, my coworkers and I ordered burgers. All of the burgers were overlooked. We didn't complain because we were in a rush but we told the waitress when she asked how everything was. She apologized but did not offer new burgers. At the end of our meal she insisted on giving us free dessert, which was nice.
