Service was fast and food was excellent. I had the new pulled pork sandwich and would definitely recommend it.

“Staff was really nice but food was just average”
Reviewed November 29, 2010

I love BBQ and i have to say, especially for Texas this was just average. They said the sausage was the best and the ribs were very popular too. They were decent, but nothing to write home about. Same with the sides. The staff was really nice and we had a nice chat. Its just too bad the food wasnt better.

“TX Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed November 27, 2010

Our family has been going to Pok-E-Joe's for several years and have never been disappointed. If you are looking for awesome bbq, Pok-E-Joe's is a must! Our picks: Three meat plate with brisket (order the Moist variety), sausage and chicken; baked potato casserole; either mac & cheese or jalapeno corn bread and LOTS of regular sauce, sharing is optional.

“Progress is a good? thing.”
Reviewed July 24, 2009

IT IS SAD THAT PROGRESS HAS TAKEN A GREAT PARTY PLACE FOR REAL TEXAS BBQ.
This was the most popular of the locally owned chain and run by Sam, Big E and Karl, with an awesome staff that served Great Texas BBQ with a decor that is all Texas. They offered Barbecue by the pound, Barbecue plates, and Catering.
Since 1979, Pok-e-Jo's Smokehouse has been feeding barbecue to Austin, Texas and fortunately, for us all there are still four in Austin and one in Round Rock. They are still offering the same great variety of barbecue plates to choose from and even a veggie plate to appease your hunger. When the weather was nice you could sit out under the Giant Texas Flag designed tent or at the sand volleyball court or inside the three sided “barn”. This location was perfect for large outdoor groups up to 200 and a landmark for SXSW events.
