Let me start by saying that our meal was all but ruined by the loud and raucous family reunion/get-together we had going on across from us in a very large dining room. There was a table of about 8-10 children ranging in ages from ? to 12 who were left unsupervised the entire time. As for the next table of as many or more adults, they weren't any better behaved but we thought, well they are having a party. As for our dinners, not much to say here except do your research and find a "local" establishment for real barbeque because you will not find it here. The sliced turkey breast, chicken breast, thigh/leg quarter & barbeque were of the quality you can find in a local supermarket on the refrigerated or frozen aisles. The only high point of the dinner was the baked potato and baked beans, sadly. Go elsewhere, though I don't know where in this city.

If it's GREAT FOOD YOU WANT (taste, price, presentation, value for money), GREAT SERVICE LIKE NOWHERE ELSE, Satisfaction always - then you need to go to SMOKEY BONES in ROANOKE VA! This is our most FAVORITE PLACE EVER and has been since it opened several years ago. We have NEVER had a bad experience at all there - only GOOD TIMES, GREAT FRIENDLY STAFF, UNBEATABLE PRICES, DELICIOUS FOOD!!! Give them a try! :)

Good barbeque, fun attentive waitstaff, clean, nice variety. Little on the pricey side for what we got I think.

Typical franchise food. Cranked out for a decent price to satisfy the multitudes. Staff was friendly. OK for a place to get a beer and fill your stomach, but don't expect any gourmet wow factor.

I love Smokey Bone's St. Loius ribs with the memphis rub & glaze. It's the best of both worlds. Had a great waitress and they got us in and out in a hurry, which was great since we had a time crunch.
