“Hidden gem”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This place is eclectic and out if the way. Break out your gps and find it! Original art on the wall adds to ambiance of the old architecture. Food was delicious and at a very reasonable price. Cuban sandwich and BBQ pulled pork were tasty. Locally owned and Kids under 6 eat free too.

“Atmospheric Food Porn!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

One of the best stops on our way back to NYC. Food was as good as the roadsides in Louisiana, but with a mid-west twist. Well worth the price and our Jewish Waiter, 5 star. Try the fried pickles and soul greens!

“A BBQ Experience”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We found ourselves ready for dinner travelling on I65 back from vacation in SC. Based on reviews we stopped in Smoketown USA for some BBQ. What a gift!! Between the 5 of us we sampled the pulled pork, chicken and brisket. Our sides included southern greens, jalepeno cornbread, spanish rice, cabbage slaw and baked beans. Every mouthful a pleasure! The owner spent time at our table in the restored 1862 grocery store. You feel like you are at a backyard bbq with eclectic art/yardsale items decorating the interior. We made some new friends, filled our bellies with food that smelled as good as it tasted, bought a new piece of artwork and had a free dessert before we were back on the road. You gotta stop in:)

“Good BBQ in a nice atmosphere with very friendly staff.”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Good not super great BBQ in a very casual southern atmosphere. Definitely recommend the sampler plate. Sides are like those of old-/a little mushy stewy bland but fine. Staff and music were very good and I would definitely recommend this for a casual fun evening..
