This place is great! The atmosphere is nice and clean, and the food is all great! The BBQ is well above average. Great glass of iced tea! This place is well worth the trip!

“Great ribs and an amazing Chicken-Fried Steak”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We dined on a very busy night with about ten family members. Everyone enjoyed the award-winning food. Ribs were delicious, wet or dry, and a full rack will last into next day. They have a wide selection of vegetable sides. Service was a bit spotty due to the crowd. Our server was friendly and accommodating, but definitely overextended by the end of our meal. The Chicken-Fried Steak - a huge serving - is the best I have ever tasted. Granted, the ribs are fine, but the CFS could make them famous if more people knew. Smokin' Joe's is a perfect spot for family dining in an informal setting. Interior has an interesting train theme as well.

“Best ribs in NW Arkansas”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

I ordered 1/2 rack of baby backs, dry. Wife ordered BBQ smoked chicken burrito, father in law ordered 1/2 rack baby backs wet.
Ribs = delish!
Burrito = delish
Coleslaw = delish
Service = good! but could have been better.
If you are looking for fancy, this ain't it. Plenty of TV's to keep an eye on sports. Interesting decor with old RR and highway signs. Beer is served but not wide selection.

“Great ribs”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This restaurant has great ribs! Also try their macaroni and cheese! Good stuff! Sometimes there are a bunch of teenagers working there, so service is nothing to brag about, but the food is great!
