Being from the south, I'm a sucker for a good brisket. Meat was tender and sauce had a good flavor. Good corn bread, too. Service was excellent! Made the experience even better.

Very fairly priced with huge portions. The brisket was perfect. I also enjoyed the pulled pork and ribs. The chicken wings were not too good. The corn and Mac and cheese were pretty decent too. Fun restaurant. Very friendly staff. I will be back.

This place was an old IHOP, and should have been torn down. The Bayou Smokehouse actually has a quaint interior, but deserves some better food. The first time I came here I swore I would not come back. The beef was try, not very flavorful,...More

My wife and I ate here for a Tuesday lunch (they're closed on Mondays). We got there early and the owner came to the table to ask if there were any questions and to take our order. Usually you order at the counter and then...More
