We opted for takeout and went in at 5:00. By 5:15 we were heading back to the apartment with two bags containing beef brisket, onion rings, dirty rice, and salad, all enough for two with some left over. This was our second visit and both times we had enough for a second meal for both of us. Good food, good value.

The restaurant is right on Route 3 just before Lolilita's. It looks small from the outside be it's roomy inside and nicely furnished. They have a small but extremely well stocked bar. The servers are very polite and have a good command of english.

I can't say enough nice things about the Smoke House BBQ!

Food is great. BB RIBS, beef brisket. Macaroni and cheese not mushy. Onion straws. Creme brulee and peach cobbler. Love the sweet little corn muffins.

Look up Lolita's Mex and follow directions. SHBBQ is in same strip on N end of strip. Close to Fajardo. Just after the Leaving Luquillo, goodbye sign when driving S on rt 3. Parking area is quite a slope.
They close early many evenings. Call head if going out late.

Thank You for your review! We have sent multiple emails to trip advisor to change the map and they have yet to change it. Very sorry for the directions, we are still trying to have that changed. Thank You for your review.

So glad we tried this during our stay in PR... I just can't put into words how great this place was. From the food, to the friendly and attentive service, to the homemade deserts and the atmosphere, the dishware, and glasses, it was just A+ all around. We ordered the family meal for 4 and we are so glad we did. We are big eaters and we couldn't even come close to finishing it. Each person picks a side item. The mac-and-cheese might be the best we've ever had and the dirty rice and slaw were top notch too. Even though we were full, we couldn't say no to the homemade peach cobbler with ice cream and another ordered the brownie ala mode. I've never seen my family eat to the last drop, but at Smokehouse BBQ, we did. Server Gustavo was flawless and friendly. If you are anywhere near the area, this is a must try.

For a change of pace from traditional Puertorican food, try the ribs or brisket from the Smoke House. The restaurant is fairly new, quite comfortable and clean. The food plentiful and mouth-watering delicious! The owners are friendly and eager to please. They might have plucked this place right out of Tennessee and dropped it on Rt 3 in Luquillo! We could only eat half of our dinners, so we took the rest back to our condo for another night. They packed our leftovers carefully, with the sides in separate containers. They even gave us little cups of additional sauces!
