“Delicious...............”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

While in Springfield we again visited Smokey Bones, we do this about every 3 months. The food is delicious, always prepared the way we like it. The chicken breasts are wonderful, and the potatoes yummy. This time, the ribs were melt in your mouth tasty, and finger lickin' great!!! There has never been a time that we have been disappointed with any of the food or service at Smokey Bones. And, WE WILL BE BACK!!

“Just average BBQ and slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Stopped by to check it out and first impression after sitting at the bar was they need more help...service was very slow. Was dining with a co-worker and once we ordered, we waited...and waited, only to find out the turkey he ordered was out....out by 6pm on a weeknight. Sauces were good, and ribs were tender but just on par with average and reminded me of another popular national BBQ chain. And to make our stay even longer, we had requested seperate checks for our expenses but check arrived on one bill, took awhile to get servers attention again to finally do it they way we requested at first.

So if you're in the mood for average BBQ and have time to kill, try it out.
