Do not let the building appearance fool you. This is some of the best BBQ around. You might have to wait a bit to order/get your food (there is often a line) but it is worth it. It is not a chain, the staff is friendly, and the banana pudding is excellent!

Very good pulled pork BBQ. I was not impressed with the beans but I'm a bit fussy about my beans. I will be back though. Maybe I'll try the brisket next time.

Smokehouse is a local BBQ place not a chain restaurant. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. The banana pudding is homemade like Grandma's!

This is some of the best bbq I have ever eaten. The baked beans are delicious too! Just wish they would serve french fries as a side, then it would be perfect. There is a quaint little building that has picnic tables. After you go up to the window to order your food (they are quick), you can go to... More

The pork sandwiches were just OK. The bbq sauce was pretty good, however the potato salad was not good at all.. The staff was friendly..

Walk up to place your order and then take to sit picnic style in adjacent building. Generous portions at reasonable prices. Authentic smoke smell and taste. Probably not ideal for a date. But perfect to satisfy a craving for good BBQ for lunch.

This is an amazing bbq place. It gets overlooked way too much because it's just a simple place. It's not meant to be a dine in restaurant it's good old southern food and the place makes you feel like you're at a family reunion. The sweet older lady that owns it is wonderful you can tell she puts her heart... More

I've never dined in here because the only option is a shed. However, they are remodeling a nicer building next door. Their menu is very simple. No fries, okra, or macaroni like other places. Mainly BBQ with the basics (slaw, chips, etc). However, that's all you need. I'm a local, and this is where the locals go. The staff is... More

Don't let the facade fool you. If you're in the mood for barbecue, go here. Everything is very good. We got pulled pork, chicken, beef, slaw, brunswick stew, potato salad, and baked beans. The whole family was pleased. You can taste and smell the smoke on the chicken, which apparently is hard to do, as I have not experienced this... More
