I went to Smokey's last night for dinner. Very good food. I had BBQ Chicken with two sides (about $13). A very hardy meal. Everything was really good. I highly recommend this place.
This is a casual restaurant with some outdoor seating. This is the kind of place you can go to after a long hike, and you won't feel awkward eating there. They are also located next to Highway 80. Check it out, you won't be sorry!

Great lunch menu, with a long list of sides. Sandwichs pulled pork, pulled chicken, and brisket. Sides from Onion rings and fries, to Sowest slaw. And if you want Chilli Fries, go for it.

I've been to this place a few times and if you looking for tasty, fast, good, reasonably-priced BBQ food, it's a great choice. It's got a huge menu with lots of main and side options. Also has lots of indoor and outdoor seating.

They had so many different things to eat. Everything was really good. You order at the counter and the line can get a little long but its worth it. I would recommend the ribs and the pulled pork.

When we make our annual two week winter trip to Lake Tahoe for skiing, we are always looking for good places to eat. Recently we discovered Smokey's Kitchen. We used to enjoy barbecue in a small place located in Tahoe City but they closed about 4 years ago. Smokey's Kitchen has now replaced the prior establishment and is a great place to have breakfast before skiing.
The serve breakfast from 7AM to 12PM and Lunch from 11PM to 9PM, 7 days a week. It's easy to get to right off I-8 by the shell station on the west side of Trukee.
There menu is mainly written on chalk boards (they also have menus) and it has everything from barbecue to Mexican. We recently had the breakfast burger which included a fried egg. Runny but delicious. The inside tables are picnic tables and small two person tables, very casual but functional. There are rolls of paper towels at every table, remember, they serve barbecue.
This includes ribs, chicken, smokey (not not) links, pulled pork, brisket, (is your mouth watering yet?) and sandwiches of all sorts. The rolls for the sandwiches are really good and if you are not up to this type food, it looks like they have good specialty wraps and salad wraps including salads and some burritos. The side dishes include potatoe salad, to fries and you can even get a Caesar salad among 3 other fancy salads. They had beer, wine, soft drinks, milkshakes and pitchers of cold water. The prices are a little on the higher side but the food is well worth the price. If you do go early, you can even get a BBQ and eggs combo for breakfast. Enjoy
