Awesome food, Awesome service. Our group was large. But Pokeys was very accommodating to our sometimes loud and happy group. The food was spot on

Just 4 minutes off I-90. Don't let the simple front fool you, it's a nice place. Very clean, saw them disinfecting surfaces often. BBQ pork was nice and smokey. The brisket was very wet. Great onion rings. Nice bar, quick friendly service.

They have a salad bar from the old days when every restaurant had one. I love to go and have a soup and salad for lunch, or enjoy some of their amazing smoked meat for dinner. Delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good food & service. Good portions and very attentive waitress. Did not try the python on the menu. Nice to know it was an option though...

Love Pokey's which is locally owned/operated and they smoke the meats on the premises. Best catfish ever on Mondays. Great service and staff.

Found this one on Trip Advisor and tried it. Great pulled pork and even had real sweet tea way out west.

The brisket is juicy, tasty, and highly recommended. Unfortunately the ribs could have used a LOT more time in the cooker as they were tough and not done well at all. Skip them.

Most people like Pokey’s. I have made a point to not go back after being served undercooked chicken. This may very well be a great place... just not for me.

Hit their little shop that was being used at a convention we were at, WOW! Great flavour, great service. Well worth the visit.
