I had been at the Smoke Shack once before to meet with friends and have a couple beers. The food looked delicious and smelled so good, so when my wife and I were in the neighborhood for business I suggested we have lunch there. We were immediately helped with a table that gave us a good view of NFL preseason football on the two screens in the pleasant outdoor area. When we started to order in Spanish the waiter decided to get an associate who spoke English. It wasn’t necessary, but it indicated that they were interested in good service which is so often lacking in many places. My wife and I both ordered the pulled pork sandwiches, which is not on too many menus in Panamá. We were very satisfied with the sandwiches, the garlic mashed potatoes, and a salad. The pork was done just right, as good as you can get it most anywhere. The service was very attentive. They took care of the little things like providing water without having to ask for it. They also have a two-for-one promotion of Grolsch and Red Stripe which was a bonus. No one was smoking outside, so we could enjoy our food. There is also a small indoor part of the restaurant, but it was a bit noisy with children. The restaurant is near Iglesia Carmen in Bella Vista. We will definitely be back and try some other items on the menu.
