“Best sauces in town.”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

they have the best sauces in town. Everyone can find something on the menu they would like, Excellent variety of smoked food. Great Live bands. nice staff and owner. the only drawback is the babyback ribs on occassion don't have a flavor. I eat here about 4 times a month, so I am familar with the Babybacks. never figured out why.
Excellent place to take a date or your whole family.

“Only Smoq is better”
Reviewed July 13, 2011

Loved this place for years but being closed on Sunday really soured me to it. It's one of the two days i had the time to go. Regularly have live music on Saturdays. Great food. Crappy neighborhood.

“Very good BBQ for the area and owner is very friendly”
Reviewed November 19, 2010

The service was great. We had a group of 8 and they waited on us hand and foot. They really take pride in their place and are very personable. They know that word of mouth keeps their place going and they cater towards that. They do everything hickory smoked and its pretty good, especially for this area. Now ive had KC BBQ and it doesnt stack up against most of that, but hey, this is Cincinnati. The wings were very good. Ribs were decent but could have used a little more spices. Didnt care for most of the sauces except the spicy garlic. The pulled pork, beef and chicken are all good. Sides are pretty good. All in all it was good BBQ. Not sure if id go back though since there are other places to try.

“Excellent BBQ”
Reviewed March 24, 2010

We went for the first time yesterday. I had the brisket and my wife the ribs. Both were wonderful. The sides were very good as well. They had several sauces to chose from and they were all very good.
