When it has to be skillet cornbread, it has to be Smokey Bones. Everything they have is crave able, but I have zero resistance to the cornbread.

I had to take a group of people from work out for a working lunch to discuss a project. The food was great. My staff was happy with the service and central location for the meeting. Plenty of space for groups, I highly recommend it.

We almost left as it took forever to get served because of being understaffed - but those workers there busted their butt! Once we ordered, we were VERY DISAPPOINTED about them BEING out of BRISKET at 5pm.... HOW!??? What we did get was AWESOME.. so, on a non-holiday, I am sure things would be much smoother...

Things were great. The best barbecue I have had I a while. The brisket was amazing and the baby-backs (all I can say is wow!). Great ambiance and great service. The Manager even came by the table to ensure everything was great, and it was!!!

Mommy daughter date night with my little! I wanted to start with something sweet and light, so I got the strawberry sangria and it delivered everything I craved! The food was amazing! We went straight to entrees with the petite sirloin and mashed potatoes. The sirloin was flavorful, tender, and very juicy! We got a side of macaroni and cheese,... More

I have been to this location three times now. The first (last year) was mediocre at best. The second time was much better, in February. Now I can say things are great. There have bee some serious changes here. The new decor is very nice but let's focus on what counts in the restaurant- the food. The brisket was exceptional.... More

Whenever i go to a BBQ place I want BBQ, not something put in a smoker. Thus this is simply a run of the mill average fast food BBQ place, no imagination in the food, did not taste bad, nothing spectacular.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. We were quite disappointed the first time - but we try to give restaurants the benefit of the doubt and try them twice. We will not be returning to this restaurant. We were seated at a booth - the bench seats were easily 8-10 inches away from our bodies. We are not... More

We have been here about 6 times. The food and service were always great. This past time however I was disappointed. First I asked for no sauce. That didn't happen. The ribs themselves tasted under cooked. They did not fall off the bone as usual and it tasted as if the sauce was used to cover it up.

I took the family to this place for Memorial Day lunch. Service and food was average. Beautifully decorated old rustic look. My wife had pulled pork that was great but my brisket was pretty dry. Onion ring batter made the rings hard to eat. More attention to details can make this place one of the top BBQ place in SoFlo.
