“True pulled pork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is five minutes from my house. They keep the menu simple and true to pulled pork BBQ. You can wet you taste buds from to sweet to spicier flavors. The prices have just barely bumped in the years they have been in service.

“Great food, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Hands down the best brisket I have ever had. Topped with an onion ring and homemade horseradish sauce, and served with baked beans and corn bread with honey for sides and a sweet tea. A meal that is pretty tough to finish for under $10.

“Slap yo Mamma Good !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

I have eaten bbq all over this planet including Oklahoma, Kansas, Az, NY this place is 1/2 hour from my house and beats them all! Get the brisket basket with fries and a bottomless coke, best thing you ever had in your mouth. No joke. Great choice of sauces, just a really good rib joint. The only thing that would make it better is Lightning Hopkins playing the blues live.

“One of a kind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

Don't let the outside fool you. Set off the road as a part of some older buildings, South Street Smokehouse is where locals go for original, authentic barbecue and delicious sides. This is barbecue as it should be. Everything fresh and prepared on-site. Top it off with a variety of their original BBQ sauces. A variety of pork and beef items is available. My favorite is the Baltimore brisket..homemade horseradish sauce, onion, on a fresh bun. The inside is a hodgepodge of various tables and decorations; but no one in the line out the door is complaining. Try to go before the traditional "dinner hour" to avoid the rush. It's interesting in that you see people from all walks of life from the area as regular dining.

“A local staple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Want some good BBQ in the midwest served by friendly biker punks? Go to Smoke House! Best BBQ in town. Nice variety of homemade BBQ's. Good sides, especially the cornbread. One warning though, it always makes my stomach upset from all the grease. If you're cool with that, go for it. But, don't have the sliced turkey or the southern mixed greens. Bleck.
