One of the best ribs and pulled Pork we have tasted. Great service as well and affordable. A great place to go if you have a big family like us. I cannot believe they are closed ...

Some of the worst quality "food" I have ever seen or foolishly attempted to eat. I hear it has closed since we ate there last month. Not soon enough, this dump should never have been in business in the first place. Their "Master Chefs" couldn't...More

Was surprised to arrive during normal business hours and find them closed, leaving me holding a Groupon I won't be able to use :(

We saw it advertised on TV and it got rave reviews. On eating there it was not terrible but not eat there again. Maybe we went with to high of a impression of what to expect. We had Beef Ribs which were average and Yorkshire...More

The title says it all: Lots of chemical smoke flavour can't hide poor meat quality. If you want a steak go to a steakhouse. I suspect the food would taste better without all the stuff they add to hide the cheap quality meats and other...More

If I have an addiction it is ribs. I have eaten them in places all over North America. My meal at the Smoken Bones Cookshack had to be the worst rib meal I have ever experienced. The ribs were dry, hard and flavourless. When I...More
