We were heading to an evening program at BAM. Looking for somewhere nearby to eat, we found The Smoke Joint. It's smaller than some of the bigger warehouse BBQ places, but the pulled pork and beef brisket was top notch! At other BBQ joints, I often get an Arnold Palmer (lemonade + iced tea), but here they have a Tiger... More

THIEFS!!!!! Despite reading a review that someone had eaten here and had their credit card info stolen, I still decided to try it. We enjoyed our meal and the service was ok (not rude like some google reviewers have noted) A month later I have fraudulent charges on the credit card I used to pay my bill here. All the... More

I'm one of those who went there after watching food network. Plus I was visiting NY at that time so totally new with the whole area too. Therefore I had some expectations that haven't been fulfilled. Proper place, though. Stylish BBQ joint with delicious food and bar! I expected slightly bigger portions but overall we were satisfied. The meat really... More

Had high hopes, and while they weren't met, it wasn't bad..... just wasn't great. Collards are good, but a little too "smokey." Brisket was good, fries were good, but a little too "smokey." Mac and cheese was also good, but just ok. My expectations were too high from watching Food Network.

Had lunch here today, bartender recommended an awesome beer "Schofferher Grapefruit Bier"!! I had the beef brisket sandwich with collard greens and my hubby had the pulled pork. The sandwiches were so tender you didn't even need BBQ sauce but the sauces were so good and flavorful you could help but use them. Can't wait to go back!

We went to the Smoke Joint for family dinner, it was an awesome experience. The indoor space is cozy, but family friendly. There's also the option for outdoor dining. We had the beef short rib (full), spare ribs, catfish and sides of Mac n cheese, greens, corn on the cob and cornbread. The food was finger-licking good!!! We were beyond... More
