What a great place

I was looking for something new in town and I found this funky BBQ restaurant. I couldn't decide so I got a combo dish which was a very full plate with a couple of ribs and a chicken breast and wing. It was accompanied by two sides of my choosing and a corn bread muffin. The meat was great in... read more

Really wanted to love this place. We love good BBQ and have eaten a lot of it. The reviews on Trip advisor were so good so we looked forward to giving it a try. It is a cute little neighborhood place. Everyone was very friendly and service was good. We tried the wings, brisket sandwich and ribs. The wings were... More

Ate here based off of trip advisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. The neighborhood is a little questionable but the restaurant itself is clean and has a very unique atmosphere. I had the chicken and rib combo which was very good- especially when I used a little of the house BBQ sauce on the chicken. The waitress was very attentive, and... More

Atmosphere is fun and laid back. Great BBQ! Sauce is fantastic! (A requirement for good BBQ!). The owner is a character and very entertaining.

I love this place. Eric, the owner, calls himself "the redneck Jew, and he's a great guy. The food is all good...I esp. like the brisket and the pork...and the sides are great! Well-seasoned and always tasty. Oh, and try the cornbread!

BBQ, I'll start with we cook a lot of BBq ourselves and I would say it's very good, for that reason we usually don't go out for BBQ. However, Smoketown sounded interesting and on a rainy Saturday afternoon we thought we would give it a try. Located in the Germantown section of Old Louisville in an old Livery Bldg, built... More

Had the rack of ribs, falling off bone delicious, beans were also great! Mac n cheese was a touch dry as was the salmon. Staff was all warm and friendly and the owner is brilliant!!! Bbq sauce is one to take home as a gift!

This is one amazing barbecue place it's a little out-of-the-way but it's well worth the trip. Make sure you ask for CURTIS and follow his recommendations he will not steer you wrong. This is one of the best places we have ate. Save a little money and make sure you buy the spicy pickles to go they are excellent
