This is a great local BBQ restaurant. I have eaten here about 5 times in the past few years, and have never been disappointed. If you like smoked and BBQ, this is a place to stop at. The also have a bar if you would like an alcoholic beverage. They also have lunch specials.

My niece and I had lunch together this afternoon. We ordered salads and the chicken bacon ranch pizza. The pizza was extra good. Our waitress kept our glasses full and brought us a to-go box for our leftovers.

We were traveling and spotted this on Trip Advisor. Since we love BBQ, we stopped. We discovered that they have a little more than BBQ on the menu. Deli items and such makes it a great place to stop if you are looking for variety. Food was better than average, although not my best BBQ stop. Décor was fabulous. Prices... More

This is a "take a chance" resturant. You take a chance that it's open and you take a chance on the food. There have been times when the meal was good and plentiful, and other times it was bad. The service is so-so. I've been there 3 or 4 times but I don't go out of my way to eat... More

We have eaten here a few times and have tried different things each time. Everything was very good. Good sized portions. The downside is they don't have much of a selection of BBQ sauces compared to other BBQ places we've been to, but over all the food is good.

We selected this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. On our first night out on a recent road trip, we were looking for great BBQ and found it here. The previous reviews are fairly accurate overall. The menu has a good variety of typical selections for a BBQ joint and a few surprises; my wife and I... More

I am not a BBQ eater so, it may be good, but other food is below average. Long waits, slow staff, pricey, weird hours. Been here 4 or 5 times. Don't get pizza.

A combination deli/catering/order out place that also has a few cafeteria style booths and tables for eating in. It's a couple of miles out of town and very unassuming but the food is great. All sauces and rubs are their own creation. Our waitress Ashley was an absolute stitch. Everyone in our party was very happy with their meal.

Witts smokehouse has seasonal hours. They vary from what trip advisor shows. I posted a picture showing those times. Check that or call ahead before driving out of your way.
