Smoky Junction was OK, simple middle of the road in many ways, nothing special. Guess that is why they closed BUT were taken over by Smokin Joe's DO GO to Smokin Joe's and see my review there.

Was delighted to find that we had a pleasant greeting, attentive waitress and the barbecue and fries were delicious. The best fries we have had anywhere in a very long time.

My steak was tough and tasteless, the salad had brown, wilted lettuce, and my baked potato was hard and rubbery. The waitress didn't come by and ask us about anything until the end of the meal. She then deducted the steak but charged us $6.00...More

We ate here by default our first night in the area. Both my sister and I ordered a steak special they offered, which came with a baked potato and a salad. The salad was very small and quite a bit of wilted lettuce had to...More
