Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Reservations
Description: We are a neighborhood-oriented, made from scratch, casual restaurant. The feel is young, hip transcending the perception of BBQ restaurants past. Serving a variety of draft and bottled microbrews representing local breweries and popular brews from great BBQ regions (Texas, the Carolinas, Memphis/Arkansas and Kansas City) we feature an approachable wine list and a full line of spirits. The menu is driven by the chefs and their Southern roots, the Great American BBQ traditions as well as seasonal and regional products.

“Good stuff! Jamie makes it happen!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Smoke is a consistently great place to eat. The meat comes out cooked perfectly to temperature, the service is on point, and the owner, Jamie, is almost always there to make sure it's all going smoothly. The mac n cheese is well done, the burgers juicy, and the ribs just right. The only thing I haven't enjoyed was the brisket which, for me, was pretty dry the two times I tried it. Overall, very nice work guys!

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We suggest you request the "fatty" brisket next time as it is super-moist, and the true "brisket lover's" cut.

“Always fabulous!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Smoke is one of our all time favorite restaurants! The food is amazing - especially the gourmet mac and cheese specials. Jamie and his crew really do a spectacular job of providing an incredible dining experience at a convenient midvalley location!

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Great BBQ
Great side dishes - cheesy grits and baked beans are my favorite
Fried chicken Monday nights
Brunch on the weekends - very good
Prime Rib was excellent
Mac and Cheese of the day
Not many beers on tap but they switch it up often.

The only bad thing is that its small and the tables can fill up quick prime time because everyone loves this place.

I go here once a week

Always consistent. Quaint & inviting. The food sections are amazing. The signature BBQ selections do not disappoint. Excellent draft options as well.
