I ordered take out and the girl was super helpful. I waited a short amount of time and received a well packed meal and a free refill of my beverage.

Just off the Interstate 81 freeway, the restaurant is set inside a giant shopping mall/outlet center. This is a welcome and reasonable respite for the weary traveller. The food is what you would expect, big menus of mostly the same things (shredded pork, beef, chicken) but packaged in different combinations. The portions are large. And in case there's not enough...

We stop in Wilkes Barre on frequent trips to Boston. Explored restaurants and decided to try BBQ. Easy to find, ample parking, quick seating, quick service. And we enjoyed great and tender pulled pork and ribs. Service was good, BBQ sauces good. We will stop here again on our next trip.

We drove by this restaurant on our way to another. The wait was too long at the first restaurant so we back tracked to Smokey Bones. It was our first time at one of these. Service was friendly and efficient. We had nachos to start. Good but could have used a little more cheese. Entrees were a chicken sandwich and... More

Only one small issue. Server brought entree's BEFORE salads. Apologized and remove salads from the bill. But still disappointing to not have your salad BEFORE the entree......but would go back..

Yes, we love the Ribs here. They are consistently meaty and fall off the bone. Of course, we also enjoy a steak on occasion. This is a fun place for the entire family.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We were not disappointed. Their smoked wings are amazing. We had the garlic parmesan and spicy garlic buffalo, good choice! We also had the"double trouble" rib dish. Two types of ribs...both delish! Lots of menu choices, Burgers look amazing. Easy location to find. Not busy on a Monday night, Waitress was... More

In town on business and needed somewhere to eat. Glad I chose here. Was seated immediately and almost as fast server was at my table. She was knowledgeable about the menu. Food came at a good pace. The ribs were great! There were definitely different levels of flavor. I could taste the smoke that was infused over a number of... More
