“AWESOME RIBS!!!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We've been going to this place since they opened up. They have the best St Louis pork ribs ever! They are tender, meaty and surprisingly lean ; ) Throw in a side of beans and cole slaw and we are set! The service is great and the people are friendly.
We WILL be back!!!
Oh, it's also located in the old depot (small museum next door) and the John Wayne Trail runs through on the back side with an interpretive trail if you want to walk off some of that yummy food!

“Brisket is awesome”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

We loved this place. Great BBQ, in fact the best food we ate while staying in neighboring Suncadia. Kind of off the beaten path and back through a neighborhood, but well worth the trip.

Got the sandwich and after the first bite was kicking myself for not getting a plate (bigger portion). Bake Beans rocked as well.

We ate their food at an event on the West Side of WA. They catered the meal, did a very good job in service and food.

“Excellent BBQ in WA!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I didn't think it was possible to find great BBQ in Washington but Smokey's proved me wrong. They make their own sauce and serve it up with moist and tender brisket, pork, chicken and ribs. The sweet tea was just right and not too sweet. They are a little hard to find but definitely worth the trouble. Try the train wreck. You won't be sorry.

“Whistle Stop Barbecue”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Saw the sign as we passed through Cle Elum and decided to try it out; we're glad we did. It's located in the old train depot, adjacent to an interesting state park exhibit about life on the railroad a hundred years ago. You will have to look sharp to find the directional signs through town.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff people gave us good recommendations. Pulled pork special was good, as were the baked bean and collard green sides. Cornbread was well above average! Baby back ribs were average, and the BBQ sauce was a bit short-portioned, although plenty of extra was available for free at the counter. Two kinds of sauces were available: original and pineapple; I preferred the original. Free refills of the iced tea were most appreciated on a hot day!
