Arrived around 8:45pm - near closing time. Elizabeth was great! Great service with a smile and happy to serve even that close to closing time! The beef brisket was fabulous! And the chicken BBQ was just as awesome!

Expectations. As a native Texan, I consider myself somewhat spoiled/jaded when it comes to BBQ. Smokin' Jakes did not disappoint me. I would recommend it to anyone and will definitely patronize this restaurant when I return to South Boston. Location. The restaurant is easy to...More
