“Outstanding for Utah Valley”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

We go to Smokehouse at least once a week, the food is outstanding, especially the burgers! Be sure to sample the homemade sauces, and the house salad dressing. Customer service is above and beyond. Recently moved to Orem Center street across from Target.

“Average fast food BBQ”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

The Smokehouse is located in a strip mall, but the reataurant is clean and inviting. Plenty of seating. Service is fast food style. You order from a menu at the counter. However, staff brought our order to the table and cleaned up after our meal. They serve pork spare ribs rather than baby backs. The meat was tender and well seasoned, with only a light smoke taste. I prefer a little stronger smoke flavor. The ribs were quite fatty and somewhat difficult to eat. There are several varieties of barbeque sauce. Corn bread was good and sweet. Potato salad did not taste fresh and the potatoes in the salad tasted rubbery or undercooked. Prices were reasonable: one meat platter with two sides for $9.99. They have a sandwich, chips and drink special at $5. In all, an average fast food BBQ experience.

“Was worried with only 3 reviews, but I'm adding number 4 with rave reviews for absolutely outstanding food!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

The beats the new BBQ chains like Dickeys and Sonny Bryans by far! And it's more than BBQ. The buger menu is gourmet! My father put the smokehouse burger in his top three ever! Ribs wee moist and juicy with good portions. Pulled pork was really good. The dinner salads I saw pass my table are giving me another reason to come back. This a strip mall gem!

“$5 full lunch? Woohoo!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

$5 gets you a sandwich, chips and drink for lunch... Woohoo! Add free wi-fi. Come on, I can sit here with my iPad, each lunch, mix my own soda with the perfect combo of diet and regular Dr. Pepper... These guys have figured it out. They have lots of different barbecue sauces... Sweet, hot, oh my heck hot... Right? Finally a great little place for a load of saucy protein for lunch... All for five bucks. Please folks, try it out. Make sure these guys stay in business...I want my little South Orem lunch place to stay around.

“This is real barbeque”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

The first clue to what to expect is the barbeque is served without sauce. Several are available if you want it but the ribs, brisket, pulled pork are moist, tasty, and real barbeque without. The chef/owner says barbeque should stand on its own without having to cover it up with sauce. That is what he delivers Sides are excellent; my favorites are the slaw and beans. Order the ribs on your first visit, then get a blue cheese burger the next time. Excellent value. This place is as good as my favorites in Texas.
