stopped here for some BBQ. server was OK, food mediocre at best. wife had ribs and Tenders, ribs were over cooked, no seasoning, brisket was an embarrassment for any BBQ restaurant. completely overcooked, no smoke ring, drenched in horrible vinegar sauce. no smoke flavor, looked like it was boiled in the oven rather than smoked. a sponge comes to mind....

We stopped by on a fairly busy Friday evening, but there was no wait and we got a great, large booth. Food was delivered fairly quickly and was good (ABUNDANT portions). However, our server seemed hurried and eager to leave for the day, so the evening could have been a bit more enjoyable with a more relaxed and friendly server.

My boyfriend and I recently went to Smokey Bones for dinner with our one year old. Normally, dining out with the baby is a stressful and exhausting experience and we leave feeling like we have ruined everyone else's night- from the servers to the other people dining. Not at Smokey Bones! Our sever, Bobby, was great and I highly recommend... More

I stopped by to watch the end of the Daytona 500. Sitting at the bar, I ordered a glass of Merlot. The bartender quickly told me they were out of it. So I went to Sticky Fingers BBQ. They had the wine!

Just got into town and found this place within walking distance of our hotel. There were only a few people eating probably because it was a Thursday night, and there are restaurants everywhere in this area. Still, service was top notch with both hostess and waitress being very friendly and helpful. Food was served piping hot and quick. Brisket was... More

On the positive side, the restaurant is clean, the atmosphere was pleasant, the decor nice, the music was hip-hop but at a low enough volume not to be obnoxious and the server was friendly and efficient. However, the food was not good. My meat had a lot of fat in it and was actually crunchy. It tasted like it had... More

We went to Smokey Bones for supper. We were looking forward to some good BBQ. We had a good waiter, his name was Lane, a young man, very pleasant and attentive. We started out with a drink, they have craft beer, Lagunitas IPA on tap, and man it was good, my favourite. My wife had a glass of wine, she... More
