Great place for lunch. Love the brisket and beans! Nothing fancy, but a fun place to go. Make sure you read as many of the signs and quotes as possible!

On my recent vacation to Cary, I was determined to get some authentic bbq. My friend took me here, and this was THE BEST! Delicious food, amazing atmosphere, the best friendly counter service too! The man, I think he's the owner, recommended pork bbq, and it was amazing. This place is not at all fancy, basically a shack!, and that... More

If you are in Raleigh area then you got to try this place. Never had this kind of delicious barbecue food before. Very authentic.

Always a great BBQ for lunch or mid-day. Go early to avoid the noon rush :) Can't beat the quality and quantity for reasonable prices.

Living in North Carolina, I have had some great BBQ and this is some of the best. This is an out of the way place. In fact, without trip advisor, we would have never found this gem. We loved it. My wife and I both had the brisket and it was amazing. Word of warning, come early. We got there... More

It was late lunch hour when I put in my to go order; a regular size pulled pork sandwich with 3 hush puppies and a side. The hush puppies were nestled like babies around the sandwich... More

Lucky enough to drive by this little place at lunchtime. I travel all over the south, and this is some of the best BBQ in North Carolina. Will definitely be back for more!

This is a great little place to get some North Carolina BBQ. Expect a line because the food and the atmosphere are just that good. They even have pick nick tables out back if you want to eat outside and many people do. You will not be disappointed.

I tell all of my friends and business associates that ask where they can get some real good barbecue, to try Smokey's. I have yet to hear any thing other than great reports from all that tried it.

Hands down, this is the best BBQ in the triangle. It is often tricky to get a table and eat on site, so plan to carry out. All the food is great. The hush puppies are addictive. Be decadent once in a while and go to Smokeys.
