“Excellent quality BBQ in out of the way location”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We went on a motorcycle ride in Howard County and came upon this great place. Very friendly wait staff, and really superb bar b que. This was a Sunday afternoon, and the restaurant (in an exurban strip mall) was packed with families and sports teams. Prices were most reasonable. We'll be back -- it's funny how the best BBQ spots are out of the way like this.

“Delicious food - friendly neighborhood atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

My sister and I grabbed lunch at Smokin Hot while I was visiting, and I was so excited to have the opportunity to try all nine of their barbecue sauce options. My favorite was Honey Sun.

The pulled turkey bbq was delicious and surprisingly moist and tasty all on its own.

All in all, a great lunch and I would love to return when I visit again!

“Great food & service”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Although a relatively small place in a shopping center in a rural area, the food and service were excellent. We were especially impressed with the salads with fish - salmon & tuna. Additionally, the service was excellent, checking on how everything was and providing additions as desired. We went primarily because of a Groupon and will certainly be back.

“average pit beef”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Ate dinner here while in the area. The decor is not much to look at and the place was very busy on a Thursday night. I did get a table quickly. The server was attentive and the food came out without much delay. The pit beef sandwich was OK, nothing special. They have 9 home made sauces which are all very good and all very different. The sweet potato fries where excellent but the vegetable of the day was soaked in butter. Overall not a bad place to grab a quick meal but would not make it a destination as a got to go.

“Love the Sweet Potato Fries”

I love the pulled pork and sweet potato fries. Service friendly, can be a little slow when they are busy. Nice neighborhood place
