Fairly typical BBQ chain. Fair service - definitely short of help. Good food, Reasonable portions. Very good, fall off the bone ribs. Wine, beer, free parking, outdoor seating, Would be much nicer if the help didn't congregate on the patio and smoke.

This restaurant has done some remodeling. I miss the conversational photos. Typically we sit on the booth side which is usually quiet enough the converse at the table.

First time here. Can't say enough......just the best. I have never eaten sweeter, lightly smoked, meaty and the best sauce. I really enjoy ribs, but have never had better than these. Had the whole rack, baked potato, baked beans and awesome onion rings.....all for 26.00. So much food, couldn't eat it all. Not only the food is great so was... More

Was in the mood for just a good BBQ sandwich and was totally disappointed. Possibly the cook was off the night we went in, and I may try it again, but not for a while. I thought the prices were fine, and our server Giovanni was fantastic, but the staff seemed to be distrait. The brisket sandwich was so burnt... More

Me and the family had the pleasure of visiting Smokey Bones the other night for dinner & as usual they didn't disappoint. We didn't have to wait to be seated and our waitress was very friendly and a great waitress. The restaurant was nice and clean. And our food was great; I had the Steak & Smoked Wings with Baked...

My fellow teacher friend and I ate here. Not only does the restaurant offer a point club card and online/text coupons that are more than generous, but the prices and portions are reasonable that two people can have a drink, small wings, loaded nachos, and split a turkey burger for under $40! OMG, so much food and the wings are... More

Visited last night and got the baby back ribs. They were like candy, so delicious. Not like a rack in Memphis but still really good. I heard the broccoli dish was amazing too but wasn't able to try it.

Second year in a row where I have come for the Prime Rib advertised special and they are out by 6:30 pm on a Sunday evening. I called at 4 p.m. and was told it was available.
