Met family for a weekday dinner. Nice clean restaurant, corn bread rolls were great starter. Pulled pork was tender and very tasty. Sides were great also, come hungry large portions. Plenty of parking. Very inexpensive also.

Great southern barbecue and great service! 3 sauces to choose from, all very flavorful. They do a great job on the fried green tomatoes! I got the pulled pork sandwich, comes with a side of homemade potato chips, very generous portions. Service was spot on.

We went to SmoQ to celebrate my daughter's birthday. I wasn't sure what to expect. I had heard great things about SmoQ. And they were all true. They have an expansive menu, and their slogan is true, "If it's legal, they'll smoke it". I had...More
