Smokey Bones was an excellent choice for lunch. We had the $9.99 lunch specials. The quarter barbequed chicken was moist and delicious. The chicken breast was also superb. The sides were very good. The cost was reasonable. The service was excellent. The staff were friendly and professional.

I did not have high expectations for one of the few late nt dining options in Johnson City. However the dry rubbed wings were not only freshly prepared (and quite tasty) but also generously served, and an inexpensive late nt special.

We went seeking good barbeque but got sub-standard at best. My husband had their "expensive" ribs which was supposed to have dry-rub but was soppy with sauce and not very good. I had a club sandwich which tasted like the bread had been toasted with old butter, oil, or something which I didn't finish eating because it tasted so bad. I ordered their advertised famous mac and cheese and all it appeared to be was boiled mac with melted velveeta. It seemed all their meats were alacarte so you have to order your sides at an additional cost/price. Wouldn't mind paying their prices if we got quality prepared food. I think this place would be described as a sports bar at best with fast food available. We agreed that we would not return to this place nor could we recommend it.

....and Good Food Too. We were in Johnson City for a business training session and figured we would try Smokey Bones. We had a party of 29, and they certainly rose to the occasion. Our waitresses Andy & Rebecca were outstanding!! Everyone got their drink orders promptly, and ALL of the food came out on time - and was cooked exactly as ordered. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. There are many choices in the area, and after a couple of disappointing experiences, we went to Smokey Bones again !! The next time to JC, I will definitely return.
