“Best BBQ in London”
Review of Shmokey's BBQ - MOVED

Shmokey's BBQ
Cuisines: Southwestern, Barbecue
Description: Here at Shmokey's, we specialize in smoked brisket sandwiches, pulled pork sandwiches, smoked chicken, and anything else we feel like smoking, from ribs to wings to fish. Come in for our take on southern comfort food. We believe in big portions, big smiles and big messes. If you don't end up wearing part of your meal, you didn't eat it right. Shmokey's is a cash-only restaurant.

These people really care about their food. The ribs are terrific, the pulled pork is fantastic and the desserts are delicious. The place is a little hard to find; inside a run-down mall, but once you've found it you'll keep going back. Go for the food not the decor; lunchtime with friends not a romantic dinner.

I went with a friend who had raved about the place after his first visit. There is really no street front other then one of those big neon roadside signs outside the tiny mostly vacant old mall in which it is located. Once inside it really feels like a greasy spoon my dad and I would have gone to when I was a child in the 80's, everything is neat and clean it's just very simple. The location and space is fine however because this place is all about the food. I was pleasantly surprised too see Steam Whistle on tap as well, I've been to supposed fine dining restaurants in London that don't have a single decent premium or craft beer. We took suggestions from the server and shared a brisket and pulled pork sandwich with mild spice. I would warn against much spice, I usually like things hot but I wouldn't have enjoyed it much hotter than this so I am happy we erred on the side of caution. The sandwich's with all the recommended toppings where unbelievably delicious, the kind of meal you think about the next day and try and figure out the best time to return. We can't wait to get back and try the brisket ends!!

Think I've tried everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. The specials vary day to day and always tasty with more than adequate portions. Great fare for the money. Gourmet chefs are always friendly and one is a Garth Brooks impersonator on the side. They are available for catering as well. You can try them out at Gate 7 at the Knights games at the JLC.

This is a small restaurant in the old London Mall on the inside next to the Sears outlet store. They specialize in southern style cooking. The pulled pork is fantastic! If you like your food a little spicy, just as for some "heat" and you will be in heaven...mmmmmm! The other items on the menu are also good and if you get the chance to try the mango cheesecake, go for it - it is the best I've ever had. This place is not anything fancy, but they sure do have great food.
