To be fair, this is the only Smokey Bones that I have ever been to. The food, when prepared correctly, is very good!

I can't recommend this restaurant to anyone. This was my third time here and it seems to keep going down hill. My wife and I went last week because it was my birthday and there was a coupon.

My kids took me for mothers day lunch. Fast seating, friendly staff, delicious food. Choices of bbq sauce on the table makes it perfect. I like the carolina style best.
