The decor is fun and typical for a modern BBQ restaurant - there is corrugated metal, brick and the like. Good thing is, that the bar and most of the restaurant are two separate halves, so you don't get as much noise at prime time....More

I’ve been to Smokestack many times. The fish tacos are always a good option (I get mine blackened) as are the pork tacos, creole catfish, and pulled pork sandwich. For snacks, I like fried pickles. Service has always been good where I have been at...More

Found this gem. Nice staff. Clean environment. Good service. Had the pulled pork tacos (3) and the other half had a brisket Rubin with apple slaw and Swiss cheese. Both were excellent.

Wine out of a plastic beer cup, no Budlight Draft so poured from Bud bottle into a plastic cup so it looked like Draft. Unattentive bartenders-spent more time on the patron side chatting. Nachos weren't that great. Just a disappointing night all around, won't return!

Enjoyed it for sure. Got ribs, Apple coleslaw, mashed potatoes and the Mac n' cheese appetizer with pulled port & chicken. We got it all as takeout and enjoyed it very much.
