Our group of 7 was really looking forward to our night out at the Smokehouse. Several local friends had suggested the restaurant. We love the downtown area and usually try to dine there when we are in town. We were seated quickly and our server took our drink orders right away. Smokehouse has a good looking menu with a nice variety of BBQ items and we were all hungry. Our entire table had decided on Rib Platters....that is until our server returned to tell us they were OUT OF RIBS. Really?
How can you expect to be a successful BBQ restaurant when you run out of ribs at 8:30pm on a Saturday night. We all decided to make the best of it and the Manager actually comped our 1st round of drinks. The rest of the evening was a disaster. Two plates of food COLD. Sent back and still not even warm. Crunchy grits. Extremely bland pulled pork and tough brisket. A bone in the pulled chicken sandwich. However, the zucchini fries were awesome and the BBQ Cuban sandwich was really good too.
The Manager had more excuses than sauces.
