So good! I'll make this simple, amazing bbq food that satisfied my craving for bbq every time. Nelson is full of gluten free and vegan this and that. This place reminded me I was a man

Smokewood BBQ is "must visit" if you are in Nelson and like good authentic BBQ. Our crew had the BBQ Box of brisket, ribs, pulled pork, beans, slaw and corn bread and the other had salad with pulled pork. Flavours were tasty BBQ, tender meat and the slaw was good as well.
We liked the house BBQ dipping sauce. Salad was fresh.
Definitely recommend and would visit again. Atmosphere is simple - you are here for the BBQ: either at the table or take out and enjoy.
Genuine service.

The food flavor and quality is outstanding.
Great variety plate with Brisket, Rib etc.

Just lacks any ambience to stay and eat - foam containers and plastic cutlery...need I say more.
They spend a lot of time on the quality of the food - time to pay some attention to the service, dishes, and atmosphere.

My husband and I visited this establishment at the end of June 2016. We were craving barbeque. The cravings were met with brisket on a bun and delicious ribs! The portions were exceptional, accompaniments were corn bread, beans, macaroni and cheese and cole slaw (all home made, nothing from a can or from a barrel of any sort. We went to the restaurant at the very end of the night, so there was no problem grabbing a table. Joan (one of the owners) was alone catering to the few of us that were in there. We eventually were the last couple in the restaurant so we were able to have a good conversation with her. She is great, very hospitable, very lovely. It so happened that she shared with us that she too lived in Regina once upon a time. Small world. Her passion for her restaurant really showed as the food was very good, very reasonably priced. One accompaniment that would have gone well with our order was a nice cold beer! Barbeque and beer just go well together. She hopes that soon her establishment will be offering alcoholic beverages.

Do you want a home style BBQ sandwich downtown Nelson? This is a wonderful place to grab lunch or a quick dinner.
