My husband loves bbq, so Smokin' J's was a no brainer! We ordered the Dinner for 4, but substituted brisket (and paid more) for the pulled pork/chicken. Good choice. My husband loved the brisket. The ribs were good, but not as meaty as he would...More

This is a fantastic down to earth, real homey kind of mommy’s recipe place. It is family friendly and the food is really fantastic. Good BBQ is not really easy. Many people and companies try to execute it but there is something in Smokin J’s...More

Delicious ribs, brisket and other great barbecue. Always fresh. Sides are good also. They jar their own pickles that are on the tables when you eat and available for purchase also. Reasonable prices.

I had the beef brisket sandwich and my friend had the ribs. Both were good but could have used a bit more heat. Condiment jars, pickles and jalapeños, were very good. Friendly service.

Smoked, delicious, unique flavor. We get the family meal every two weeks and have enough for 3 meals. You've got to get a jar of the pickles to take home-you won't regret it.
