Best thing to do here is to get the sampler. Get it with what you usually like. The I sauces are on point. Service is top notch, really nice and helpful. They are also on top of bringing you anything you need fast and refilling...More

Smokestack had both my and wife surprised with just how good the BBQ truly is! Nice staff and even better food. Check it out because Worcester doesn't have many options and this is a good one
