Had lunch at Smitty's and just wasn't impressed. Portions were on the small side and staff was very slow and seemed disinterested. Salad bar was nice with a good selection. The empty parking lot should have been a clue.

The crew at Smitty's BBQ is top notch. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the brisket; it was flavorful and juicy. My Mother had the ribs and man oh man were they delicious. The potato salad was excellent and Mom really enjoyed her peach cobbler....More
