Took a road trip and ended up in Rogers, Arkansas. Shalena was our server and she went above and beyond in making our dinner adventure GREAT. Shalena suggested the Baby Back Ribs, Chopped Brisket and Pulled Pork and she was right on. The ribs were fall off the bone perfect, the chopped brisket was flavorful and moist with the pulled...

If you want some good, tasty authentic BBQ, then this is the place. The food is very well cooked and presented and you will go away satisfied and full. Some have said the wait for the food is longer than normal, but we have never found this to be the case even when they are crowded. I have had several... More

Having been a patron of Smokin Joe's dating back to the mobile rig in front of Kmart. This was my maiden voyage to the swanky new place. It's very nice, and very spacious. Many people confuse the name with their specialties, because the "Giant Chicken Fried Steak" is in the top five of any place around here. The BBQ is... More

Very good bar-b-q in Rogers however the facility is in need of a remodel / upgrade. They have great salads with any of the smoked meats which are great! I do recommend.

Took my family of 5, we were all disappointed. Two of us ordered the 3 meat platter, to get a taste of what these guys offered, one had a smoke sirloin, one a pulled chicken sandwich, the last ordered a Chicken Fry. To start - it took quite a while to deliver our meal, the chicken sandwich was delivered a... More

This place has moved a few blocks away to 200 North 8th Street and is no longer on W. Poplar. Wonderful BBQ, hamburgers and sandwiches

Very good ribs and brisket, sides, and sauce. The spicy sauce was my favorite, the meat tender and flavorful, and all the sides I tried were very tasty. The building was typically rustic for a barbecue restaurant, but very nice and clean. Good for families, couples, or whomever.

Food and service is just average, nothing to get real excited about. Regular offerings and regular greasy type food. Service is also average, nothing extra. Cleanliness is pretty good though. Would I eat here again? Yes, and I have because it was choice of friend whom likes quick cheap food.

Great food at a reasonable price. Every time I have company over from out of town, this is the place I take them. And every time they come back to visit, this is the place they want to go for dinner.
