Ribs are what we are talking about. When you come to Louisville make sure to check out the best red neck ribs available. Meaty with just the right amount of fat.

My wife and I chose this spot based on recommendation on Trip Advisor. We travelled from Maine 2 days ago and wanted to try "real BBQ". We were not disappointed! Unique, quirky, eclectic, extremely welcoming, and not stingy with their serving sizes. I had the Brisket Sandwich with sides of Mac and Cheese and a Cabbage Salad, while my wife... More

Chicken and ribs. Flavor is on the mild side, so the meat shines through the way it should. Sides are tasty, and most are vegetarian friendly (go ahead and bring your friends that don't mind watching you enjoy tasty animals). Staff is friendly even when overworked.

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!!
