Yes, I would happily go back and sample more of their BBQ offerings. Great BBQ joint atmosphere, big lunchtime crowd, fast service. Pulled pork was a bit dry for my tastes but otherwise was very good with a good smoke ring and good bark. Brisket was very tender and flavorful, but not terribly smoky. Cole slaw was creamy and crunchy but the green beans were straight out of a can. They had some of the best hushpuppies I've ever had. Two choices of sauce on the table, both similar with one being somewhat spicier than the other. There was a definite tomato component so if you're a "down east" NC BBQ purist you're out of luck.

I would definitely recommend Smokey's to locals and tourists. It is a traditional BBQ joint with a casual atmosphere and good cooking. Both the pork and brisket were very tender. There are a lot of sides to choose from so try a little of everything at your table. Take the time to stop and read the signs throughout the restaurant!

Great NC BBQ, interesting restaurant, casual and out of the way. Restaurant has funny sayings throughout, very casual atmosphere (styrofoam cups, paper plates). Best thing about Smokey's is the wonderful food. I had pulled pork with okra and beans. Yummy!

was staying in the area for a wedding and wandered out in search of Carolina BBQ while the girls did their thing. i'm always looking for good food and Smokey's did not disappoint!

as others have stated the hush puppies are phenominal along with the smoked wings and brisket. even after finishing up my sampler platter, i went back up to get more brisket! service and the owner's friendliness was also over the top! i even bought a bottle of their sauce to take back to ohio. great place to visit!

If you like sticky seats and tables and are not afraid of plastic cutlery, you might have a great time in here.
I had some kind of ribbs that were served with nearly black fries, stonelike croquettes and a small cup of beans, that for sure was cooked over several days.
The best about this location is that I survived the meal!
