South Street Smoke House keeps their smokers stoked all day long. The slabs of St. Louis spare ribs and baby backs fall off the bone. The sides are very good, especially the baked beans and cornbread. Don't miss the large pots of homemade sauce to mix and match, from sweet to hot hot. Best in town!

I go here at least twice a month. It is so good. The brisket is my favorite. But the pulled pork is really great too.

Stopped for late lunch and we were not disappointed. Chicken, brisket and ribs are delicious. Six choices for sauce. May have to wait if you come at busy hour.

Fantastic little place for great BBQ and brisket. The sides are awesome, too (get the southern greens!) Perfect for lunch. I've used them to cater an event, as well...you just have to pick it up. Nice, nice, very nice!

I ordered 2 meats to go, brisket and pulled chicken. Both were very moist; however, I did not like the sauce that they pre-mixed with the chicken. I would have preferred it plain, but understand that they likely pre-mix it to keep it from drying out. I would suggest that they mix it with a mild bbq sauce, just enough... More

This is the best bbq in Lafayette, it is above average compared to bbq you can find elsewhere. Can be hard to get into at lunch and supper times, best to go in at off hours.

This review is in relation to my visit during mid-February 2017. I was at Purdue for the BCM Career Fair and made a point of heading over the Lafayette upon completion in order to get the glorious food from the heavenly place known as South Street Smokehouse. I graduated from Purdue in December 2006. While I was still attending school,... More

One of my favorite Lafayette restaurants! Definitely shabby but wonderful BBQ ribs, brisket and chicken. Uniquely prepared side dishes are a must have; excellent fried dill pickles and onion rings (hand battered to order). And an assortment of homemade BBQ sauces....mild to super hot. Wash it down with sweet tea, the best! Enjoy the blues playing in the backround.

I really loved this place. It was my first time and I was blown away. It is really a hidden little secret. Not much space to sit but, food is more than worth it. Prices was good as well. A must eat.

Thank Moe L
