If you’re in Nelson or driving through Nelson and you’ve had enough of the vegetarian/hippy business, stop in at Smokewood BBQ and get your meat on. It’s probably one of the better BBQ joints I’ve been to. Low key, fast service, good pricing and the...More

This is a fairly small restaurant with a limited number of tables. Food is fantastic with a good portion size. You order at the window and it gets delivered to your table. Take out is available which might not be a bad idea given the...More

Glad to see their A frame sign on the main street or we wouldn't have found this hidden gem. Great meal overall. Ribs were fall-off-the bone and sooo good. Got the BBQ box and the meaty mac and cheese and shared both with my son....More

I went to Nelson and here for the first time. I ordered the chopped brisket sandwich, cornbread and a root beer and the food was awesome. If I go to Nelson with friends, I am suggesting this place.

For a BBQ place, food was average. Ordered full ribs to share with 2 sides. Ribs were large but not very tasty & a bit dry. Beans were good but cornbread was dry & hard in the middle, like it was over baked.
