Had dinner at Smoketown BBQ. Great food! The Flintstone ribs were out of sight, and you have to try his Greens. I will definitely be back on my next trip.

We swung by here to grab some food to go. The staff was BUSY but really sweet with a bigger to go order. We had ribs and chicken with sides - the sides tasted home made and were really good. The restaurant was a really down to earth, homely kind of place and the staff acted like we were family... More

This place is not much to look at inside or out, but it sure is welcoming, friendly, clean, and tasty inside! The chicken fell off the bones, the corn bread was great, loved the soul greens w a flavorful bite, and the welcoming helping of pulled pork. They have their own bottled bbq sauce that added great flavor to my... More

Enjoyed my brisket sandwich, cole slaw (wow!!!) and baked beans (OK, maybe Campbells). Overall I would rate this meal OFF THE CHARTS. Enjoy. I got it to take out, but they had a great beer selection.

Don't let the location fool you or the look of the place. The BBQ is some of the best I have ever had. Tender, juicy and large amounts. Will recommend and be back!!

If you are looking for a place that has decent BBQ in Louisville, this is a good place to go to. I thought the ribs were a little on the fatty side but overall a pretty safe bet for BBQ while in Louisville.

We had the dinner meal with 3 things in it, chicken, pork and ribs. They were are great, but if I had to do it over, I would just stick with the ribs. They were outstanding. Parking is next to the restaurant. Service was excellent.

The rub they use on the ribs and chicken are great! They have sauce on the table but IMO it doesn't need it. (FWIW It's catsup based versus vinegar based if you care). The Soul greens have some meat and black eyed peas in it with a little bit of heat that helps kick the favor up a notch. The... More

Tiny little place with a great atmosphere. Staff is fabulous. Ribs and chicken were great flavor and really hit the spot. Some wait but it was after an event so understandable. Went a couple of times for the great food
