Had takeout from this place recently. It is located in an old strip mall. The inside decor looks like a traditional bbq place though. Got the half rack of ribs with beans and Mac. It comes with a half slice of garlic cheese bread which...was good but doesn’t travel well. The ribs were decent. Not the best I’ve ever had but not the worst. They seemed a tad dry. Loved the sweet bbq sauce they put on the side. Mac was great but beans were kind of bland even though they had a little kick to it. Inflation has really hit this place as I paid about $24 for this meal which seems about $5 too high.More

I’ll start by saying I usually don’t write reviews. We came from Washington State to visit relatives here in Missouri. We made it our mission to try BBQ from lots of BBQ joints. We have eaten BBQ 5 times on our trip stretching from Kansas...City to St Louis. We had not been impressed until we came to Smokee Mo’s in Arnold. Best BBQ we have experienced in Missouri. We had the 5 meat platter. We had ordered similar plates at other BBQ joints but they have not been able get all 5 meats right. They would be good to great on 2 or 3 of the meats, but not all 5. So I can honestly say that I was not expecting the meal we got. Another point I’ll make about the BBQ we got…..no need for any sauces. They do have a nice variety and I did sample them but there was no need to utilize any of them. The BBQ was that good. Home run guys.More

I was traveling through he area and found this listing on the internet. I was unsure of what to get but the friendly and approachable staff guided me in selections. I had the pork steak special. It came with two sides and the cheesy potatoes...were recommended. I chose the baked beans as well. The food was neatly packaged to go. Everything was amazing. The meat was tender and flavorful. The potatoes and beans were excellent as well. This was absolutely a great restaurant meal and overall pleasant experience. I would say it was an absolute value for the quality of food you get. It was real food, freshly prepared. Easy parking out front.More

I see many good reviews on this place. We must have went at a particularly bad time. We bought two dinners totaling $35.00. Ordered burnt ends and received a small cup of what looked like pulled beef au jus. Gave that to the dog. I've...had burnt ends at other BBQ establishments and this was NOTHING like that. The mac N cheese was cold and probably two days old as it was blobbed all together - that's the best I can describe. We wanted the pork and beans (on the picture they look delicious) but there was only about 15 beans in the serving tray and my husband said they tasted like paste. The cole slaw had a very metallic taste. Took one bite and was afraid to eat - had to throw it out. Husband ordered 1/2 slab of ribs and he said those were just OK. Certainly will NOT go there again. It was a total waste of our $35.00.More

Tried this place after reading reviews and being in town with family. The pulled pork sandwich was very good. The bun was toasted and sauces were great. Sides were just average. Mac and cheeses was ok. My husband got the burnt ends and said they...were fantastic. They also serve Pepsi products and I’m a Diet Coke girl.More

I had the pork steak platter and it was amazingly tender. Really like the Smokey with a kick barbecue sauce. Also really like being fried corn. The beans were average as was the mac and cheese.

Stopped here to eat lunch, we called in our order, waited about 10 min for 3 Mo's Meat platters. The food was excellent, the meats were tender, sides were great & the cheese garlic bread was perfect! Worth it to drive a little out of...the way.More

But that’s about it. Meat was served in a ball wrapped in wax paper, not on bread and it sure didn’t look like a large one unless it’s just the meat that makes it large. Didn’t deserve the tip either. I understand at this time...businesses are doing what they can to stay afloat, but this didn’t even look appealing. Threw half of it and the frenchfries away😢.More

Pulled pork platter. Meat was cold and lacked flavor. Mac n cheese was dry and mushy, don't ask me how that's possible, but it was. cheesy bread was like biting into a block of styrofoam. I basically paid $15 for good fries and cold water....First time and last time. Sorry.More

My wife and I went there with the idea that it was going to be ok. Boy was I ever WRONG. This by far was the best restaurant style BBQ we have ever eaten. I have travelled all over the US trying BBQ and NONE...of it can compare to Smokee Mo's. This is one of the hidden gems that you must try.More

The meat is good and well cooked. Melt in your mouth. We had brisket and mo meat platter. Brisket was good but crust was peppery. Mo meat was great. The sides were little overcooked. The garlic bread didnt taste like garlic bread it was more...like cheese bread. The sauces are ok but different from what we used to. The place is clean and atmosphere great to sit and eat with friends.More
