This is a really good bbq spot in Salem. The portions are huge and they have some unusual sauces. I recommend it.

Solid BBQ/Smokehouse place...good food, good service! We went as a large group of 30 or so (adults and teens) during a visit to Salem. We all really enjoyed Adam's Smoke House...our favorites were tri-tip, beef ribs, brisket...as well as great Mac n' Cheese and coleslaw!...More

This is the BEST BBQ in town. The meats are cooked to perfection, the sides are great and the ice team is cool and refreshing! Seating is limited but the service is quick and efficient.

Good menu variety, 6 of us ordered something different and all were satisfied. Hubby really enjoyed the tri tips - generous portion. Brisket sandwich and Mac and cheese were good but not excellent.

They will cater and so bring the food and set it up. We used a taxi to pickup from them and deliver what we'd ordered for our company picnic. Did not go smoothly because the food wasn't ready when they'd promised so we had... More
