Worst BBQ we've ever had! Signature Sandwich Pork Tenderloin tasted like boot leather cooked last week. Everything else was straight out of a CAN. Probably had something to do with teenagers running and managing the place, with no adults to talk to about the food. Couldn't even eat the food, and the floors were very sticky.

I ordered the riblet off the appetizer menu, full of gristle and small bones that are not normally served with ribs. Parts of ribs were really tough. The pork tenderloin was ordered by someone at our table. They said it tasted OK, but was very dry. The only one in our group that was happy with meal with the chopped... More

I ordered a stuffed baked potato with pork barbecue. I asked for cheese, bacon, butter and sour cream as toppings. What I got was a dry baked potato with dry chopped pork and bacon, and cheese. They forgot the butter and the sour cream, and for some reason they assumed that I didn't want any sauce either, which was never... More

We took a large group to lunch while we were working on the wild game supper at (Fin Feather and Fur) church. The food was great and the service was better we will go back.

Easily accommodated a group of approximately 12 with semi private seating. Good food & service were excellent. Afterward, the owner/manager came out to our table & personally thanked us for visiting the restaurant.

This was our 2nd time to eat at Smokehouse. The first time we were very impressed with the great food, and even more impressed with the great, friendly service. When it came time to plan a dinner for a large group, Smokehouse was our first choice.From the very first call to set up the event, the staff has been extremely... More

Took family here for dinner. Was pleased with the fare and will probably go back. The choice of BBQ Sauces range from mild to sauce you may not be able to eat it's so spicy. I like the spicy stuff and had the NO SURVIVORS (Habanero) sauce. After dipping one piece of meat in it I found it hard to... More

It's been a year since the smokehouse has gotten new owners. They have cleaned the place up. They put in free wifi. The kids liked that. Even though all the staff says the bbq sauce hasn't changed. It still doesn't taste the same. They put it in bottles on the table. It doesn't taste the same. I just don't like... More

Have eaten here several times. Decent barbeque, especially for a BBQ place in Arkansas, a state which is not known for having good BBQ. The sliced brisket is good as well as the ribs, the side of beans isn't bad, but the slaw and potato salad can use some work. The salad with pulled pork is good also. The wait... More

Fortunately, we live in Conway and it's about a 5 minute drive. We get take-out at least once a month. There are only two of us and we usually get loads of food and eat on it for a couple of days. Their ribs are falling off the bone good. (This is an improvement since new management). The whole or... More
