The best BBQ around, this place is cozy and crowded but well worth it. Their tri-tip sandwiches are a crowd pleaser. The rib are fantastic,you won't go wrong eating here.

A year ago, I was all-in with Holy Smoke, but my last two visits have left something to be desired. The meats have been good, but the sides have gone downhill. It tastes like they are beginning to make some cost-saving choices in the kitchen and it's noticeable on the plate. For example, the beans taste like they were smothered... More

Best smoked pork and beef anywhere locally. Not a franchise... one location. Standing room only at lunch time, come early. Not a fancy place, but the food is very flavorful... a lot a repeat customers.

Dad & I stopped here for a little lunch, and it was just what we wanted. Tasty, hearty but not heavy, wide selection of sauces, interesting sides, and a playful, fun, comfortable atmosphere. Keep up the great work, guys!

Stopped here to try their ribs. We got a full rack so we had plenty for now and latter. Boy are we glad we did. Loved the tender fall off the bone meat. Tried several of the sauces and found two really we liked. We will definitely return.

This is a semi-self-service BBQ joint, similar in format to many others. You order the food at the counter and they will bring it out. The employees were all very nice and helpful. All the drinks and sauces are self-serve. I appreciated the number of sauce options. They were all good, but I didn't find any of them outstanding. Overall... More

Visited this place today, fantastic selections, amazing tastes and a Flavour station to add to your food. Had the Brisket and wings with the creamed corn. Very good prices. Delicious!

WSWe stopped by with our son and family and order two of their large platters to share. We have visited before when we were at our son's and the quality of food has remained consistent. They have a wide variety of BBQ sauses which are made in house. Would recommend over other close by BBQ places.
