“Good portion size”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We ordered spicy chicken wings to share for starter and then a burger each. The portion sizes where very good but we thought our burgers were over cooked (that's just our taste). The curly fries were lovely.
A good theme restaurant and lovely staff.

“High expectations from brilliant previous visits, shattered.”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Me and my girlfriend have eaten at smokeys 4 times before and really enjoyed it, we even wrote positive reviews a few pages down. But today things were alot worse.

We originally took a peek in the ranch grill down the road but decided on smokey joes as im a fajita fanatic. First initial greeting.was good. The table we were sat on was nice but out the.way of any staff view and behind us out the window was rubish a dead bush and.cigarette butts. We ordered our starter and and it.came in okay time. Now i dont know if the staff were eager to.go.home.or what but no one.ever checked if food was okay for the.whole.time we was there.
The starter was okay and mains.were good apart from not being able to.change the rice for fries like i have.been able to.previous. this with very disapointing as the rice.was just a microwave pot rice.
Not once was.we.checked on and i.had to go up and around to bar and interupt their messing about.with.each other to.get more.drinks. in the end i had to.go up to.get bill and wasnt asked if all was okay maybe because they knew a no was coming :/the manager didnt even look at us as i was trying to.catch his eye to ask him where the service was. i feel like i havnt.given my missus a good birthday meal. :( the female manager wasnt available and i feel if she was there things. Would of been better because she was the one in the past with.top notch.customer.service.
Unfortunately not.going again and will have.to.find another fajita hit elsewhere :(
Please check your tables, lower ur price of sweetcorn, offer swapping of sides and make an effort with you customers! Losing them bit at a time adds up fast!

“Yum yum”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Food was tasty and they served a variety of american dishes from burgers new york steaks southern fried chicken to fajitas . Portion sizes were huge. Service was good also. Was amazed by some young men attempting man vs food with giant hot dogs and burgers. Wonder if they managed it? Also stayed at b&b above rooms were spacious and very well decorated. Breakfast was amazing!

Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Myself and 4 other work mates decided to take on the man v food challenge at Smokey Joes louth for a laugh.upon arrival at the venue we were greeted by very polite staff.we were shown to our table and ordered some drinks,after about 15 minutes the food was ready....OMG the size was enormous 4lb of burgers 3 bread buns salad and a double portion of chips...it was huge...all this food had to be eaten in 60 minutes to win the challenge,sad to say nobody did it lol,the food was good the venue was clean and staff very friendly,the normal menu was pretty good too,plenty of choices well worth the visit to smokeys.
