Melt-in-your-mouth smoked beef brisket! Margaritas made with ”7 Horses” tequila (2 for 1) Ribs were the meat literally falls off the bone. And for those with a HUGH sppetite, get the Prime Rib! (so big it'll remind you of the Flintstones!)

The place to go for BBQ in Ajijic. The food is great, the service is fast and friendly, and the outdoor seating creates a comfortable atmosphere that can be enjoyed all year round in the Lake Chapala climate.

This is the best bbq restaurant in Jalisco, the brisket melts in your mouth and has a lot of flavor. The bbq ribs are perfect, juicy with a good smoke flavor. I’ve tried different bbq restaurants in Guadalajara but nothing compared to Smoke House.
