“The ribs rocked!!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

The way ribs are prepared are def a personal choice. I am from the Midwest and I hear so many diff ways that people "think" they are "supposed" to be prepared. My opinion, to each their own!! I like them savory rubbed and falling off the bone and The Smokehouse definitely delivered. My daughter also had them and agreed they were great!! Love the combo of mustard sauce with the spicy sauce. Easy place to take the family and enjoy a delicious meal in a laid back atmosphere!!

“Great Barbecue”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

After moving here from Mississippi, it was hard to find barbecue that measured up to home. The Smokehouse does just that. Great ribs, chicken, and some wonderful pecan pie. Will be back.

“Dissapointed!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

I got the pork sandwich and I found it extremely dry! My husband got the brisket and he liked it and my son had the chicken wings and he seemed to like them too.. What I really dislike was the service, the server was very cold and in a hurry and we never got a refill on our drinks also don't get the chili! It's a mix of pieces of brisket and tomato sauce and it doesn't come with any sour cream, cheese or onions!! Very plain!
In overall the experience wasn't out of the ordinary!

“Excellent food/service! A new favorite place!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went with our daughter last night for the first time. The food - ribs, wings, chili, HH tacos, chips and dip - were delicious! During HH sit in the bar area! Wings are cheaper and the appetizers are yummy! There is a stage, big TV, and lots of room. The restaurant was clean, neat, and nicely decorated! It smelled amazing just walking in the door. In the restroom, the hand scrub offered was delightful! Service was exceptional too! Only minus? We live too far away!
