If you want decent, American style BBQ in the city centre, then go around the corner to Pitt Bros. My husband and I came to Smokin Bones Tuesday pm (28/3). The meat was cold, the portions tiny and everything was smothered in this sickly sweet sauce that overpowered the natural flavours of the meats. The bathroom was filthy, with so... More

I was visiting Smokin Bones yesterday (25th march) early evening (6) with a group of 8. We had to get here at this time as they don't take bookings and advised that if we came later there would be a wait as its a small establishment. We ordered drinks and food at the same time, about 10 mins after we... More

Absolutely love this place. The food is so fab and with the portion sizes you won't be left hungry. Staff were super friendly and interested too, the atmosphere was perfect for the food we were eating. 10/10 will be coming back.

Stopped by this place with a friend as it had been recommended to us. Atmosphere was warm and friendly, music was great and staff were friendly and informed. Food was tasty and hot, we both had burgers which were 10/10. Good selection of side orders, and generous portions too. Hit the spot for two starving travellers.

This was by far my worse dining experience ever. My group of friends and I sat down rather excited for some BBQ style food. The service was fine, the food was okay, but the hygiene of the restaurant quickly became bothersome. We at first noticed one fly and thought nothing of it- possibly that it was just a warm day...

While the service and food was good, we had MANY unpleasant guests at our latest meal. We were immediately enticed by the menu and decent prices offered by this joint, and coming in we were pleasantly greeted and served. What began as noticing a few pesky fruit flies hovering over our meal soon turned into the realization of an entire... More

At Smokin Bones we believe in doing things the authentic barbecue way, low & slow. We don't rush our meats, everything is slow cooked and smoked to perfection. Come on in and taste the difference. The Smokin Bones Team
