With its 100% Hormone and Steroid free Bison Burgers, Choice Angus, and locally sourced Top Dogs, Smacks’ menu includes Chicken and Vegetarian options, daily Chef Specials, specialty Harney & Sons Fine Iced Teas, and inspired Frozen Custard flavors. Smacks’ Fries, a tasty crinkle cut, immediately earned “Best Fries” distinction with SRQ magazine.
