Nodine's is a one of a kind place. A true smokehouse filled with everything from bacon to smoked duck. The beef jerky is probably the best in the land, as are all the products. The chicken apple sausage is unreal and Mr. Nodine is such a nice man. Go early during the holidays, the line gets long.

Not sure where to start ... You walk into an aroma that instantly gets your belly rumbling. Order a deli sandwich (smoked meats, smokes cheeses ... so good!). Browse the selection .. so much in a such a small space to choose from. We always end up buying more than we had planned. A must ... their chocolate chip cookies... More

Goshen is a wonderful little destination simply because a drive from Litchfield to Goshen on Rt. 63. You feel like you are sitting on top of the world...continue around the rotary, and you come to Nodines on your left. If you love smoked cheeses and meats, then this is a must. Order you ham for Easter.

Pay these people whatever they want. The dine-in options are limited to sandwiches and deli, with outdoor picnic tables, so obviously go on a nice day for a picnic lunch or snack. Then load up your cooler with sausage and bacon. We bought venison and a whole smoked pheasant for the freezer. They also have bison, duck etc. Our daughter... More

My quest to find great bacon ended when I found Nodine’s Smokehouse. I normally visit their store in Goshen. They smoke their own bacon, it’s cut slightly thick, tastes and smells wonderful. Once you have their bacon, you will find it difficult settling for supermarket brands. My favorite is the double smoked bacon. My dog loves their smoked bones.

We live close to Nodine's and stop when we want good, local sausage and bacon. The chorizo is great, the Italin both hot and sweet are excellent. There are many varieties of bacon -Apple smoked, pepper, double thick, brown sugar(Io think). Plus a number of other special meats and smoked fish. They also make sandwiches and soups. Great place for... More

Although this store is best known for their bacon, it's the andouille that reigns supreme. Better than any Cajun store. It's flavor is smoky, somewhat spicy and good quality. Small run business that delivers quickly.

Nodine`s has just about any kind of meat, fish or poultry smoked that you could ever want. When I had my restaurant I would order smoked divi scallops for an appetizer I had developed. Each night I would sell out they were so good. The smoked Duck Breast is so moist, same with the chicken. Nodine started out in a... More

Ive been going here for years and love it, esp their smoked duck or spinach stuffed bread. Today, however, was an exception. It wasnt the usual worker. She gave me a difficult time about my service dog coming in with me then gave me the most tough, grizzly, chewy roast beef sandwich ive ever eaten. Would have brought it back... More
