We are new to the area and systematically trying the many BBQ joints in the area. Smokey' has now taken over the number one spot in our mind. While the wait was a little longer, the food was hot which isn't always the case when picking up BBQ. The ribs were meaty and stood on their own dry. Pulled pork... More

Bbq is pretty good and love their baked beans which contain bbq meat. Very reasonable prices. Discounts for military, firemen, and police.

I've eaten here several times, the meals are not consistent sometimes the meals are great and sometimes there below average. They need to hire more mature workers some times the young people who work there are playing around and not serious. But given the right manager this place could be much better.

Went to Smokey's for Sunday lunch. Upon ordering, we were told that the baked potatoes would not be ready for another 40 minutes. Instead I order a pork sandwich. My side was french fries. My companion's side was Brunswick Stew. The staff did not pay enough attention to know that the order was ready and the sides were not as... More

The BBQ is just the way I like it! Only gave 4 stars is cause they need to update the facility a little in my opinion, but the food is more than worth it.

Been eating at Smokey's for several years, after relocating to the area. Always great food, with many selections. All their entrees are great, from the BBQ right down to the southern fried catfish. Smokey's sauce is the best I've had. (I prefer the mild red sauce, but they offer a spicier version, too.) Great selection of sides. Always friendly and... More

I'm not real particular about BBQ, they pretty much all taste the same to me. I like Smokey's, I've never gotten a glob of fat that I can recall. I do like their potato salad, I've stopped in to get just that to accompany a home meal. The service is always quick and friendly.

Smokey's is a bit of a unique place. While it is a BBQ joint, they have awesome burgers (the Smokey burger) and unusual options like cornbread/greens and fried okra. The ribs are decent also. This is a regular visit for me and my wife. While we love the food it is not the cleanest place. It is usually run by... More

Had lunch here today. Got the combp platter, 1 St. Louis style rib (wet), pork and beef. Two sides of onion rings and okra. All was good but felt the meats could have been a bit more smoke flavored, although still better than many I have had recently. The fried okra was spot on though an a lot of it.... More
