This is THE WORST place to eat in Buffalo. The "barbecue" is enhanced with Liquid Smoke, the sides are bad (our coleslaw was way to the left of spoiled that it was bubbling it was so fermented) and the owners are downright liars and cheats. I am not sure why anyone goes to this place. Seriously. Drinks can range anywhere... More

We stayed in Buffalo for one night, and stopped into this place for dinner. It was a good experience. We both had brisket, which was very good. Local beers on tap for $4. Service was friendly. We got plates, and total came up to around $40 including premium sides and beer, for 2. Not cheap, but a fair price. Place... More

The ribs are fantastic. So is the cole slaw. Dining inside can be problematic (except in the winter), but the back patio is a great place in the summer. Tiny, tiny insides, but worth it if only for the ribs!

Sometimes it can get annoying trying to find a place to eat when you're vegetarian... Especially in a very small town. Luckily, this delightful, delicious restaurant gave both myself (veggie) and my boyfriend (carni) great options! Fair priced, and good beer. It's also located in what seemed to be an old house, so it does get pretty cozy!

If i could give 0 stars, I would. We're locals and like to support local businesses, but this is one I would avoid. We had a bad experience at this restaurant two years ago that involved them charging us $15 for a plate of chips and passing off a frozen pizza crust as their own. We explained our extreme dissatisfaction... More

Michael, dishonest just doesn't apply. I did respond to your last complaint and apologized because there was obviously a mistake on the $15 charge and it wasn't a plate of chips. The extra charge for the mac and cheese is stated plainly on our menu. We charge extra for this side because of the cost of the ORGANIC products we... More

It is an obvious favorite with the locals as it was packed and loud. We were able to find a table and tried the bruschetta appetizer, which was good. They serve local beers that are also gold. The pulled pork was delicious, the brisket a bit dry and the Mac n cheese is out of this world.

We ate on the patio which had alive band - it was extremely loud - we could not have any conversation, We shard the fried pickles which were very good and a Pizza which was also very good. Just couldn't hear ourselves think!

Up In Smoke has a surprisingly impressive scotch selection. There's lots of local beer options, from Jackson Hole to Sheridan to Ten Sleep. Food was just OK. Lots of great characters for people-watching. I saw a mustached man with a hook hand. I bet he's a regular.

Terrible service. Food arrived while we were still waiting for silverware. We came here because of a local recommendation, but other than a great selection of local beer at the bar, it was not good. The brisket was dry and flavorless, and the chicken much the same. No amount of bar-b-q sauce could salvage this meal.

I admit to being a little biased having ate at some great BBQ places all over America. The service was good But the Food was not. The Ribs were bland, sauce was flavorless, and the slaw should be avoided completely! As with most pet projects, narrow vision prevents greatness. I suggest swallowing some pride and touring some really fantastic BBQ... More
