“Sid's not nearly as good as Smoque”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

We went to the new Sid's Smokehouse in anticipation that it was a worthy successor to Smoque, which closed last year. Smoque had big, fabulous, fresh salads, smokey delicious pizzas and more. Sid's may be trying to hard right now. The Reuben sandwich with barbecued pork, cheese and sauerkraut on variegated rye bread wasn't tasty....and, in fact, was surprisinly dry. We also tried one of their salads, which was OK, but not nearly as big or fresh as we remembered. Sadly, Sid's seems to be capitalizing on Smoque's popularity but without providing the finer touches that we loved. One good point: We had $3 house wine during Happy Hour, which was decent, and the 1/2 of a Smokehouse Chicken was tasty.
