While staying at a nearby hotel, we walked over to Smoke for dinner. The bar was full at 5:00 but we were promptly seated. I ordered the Q Combo with brisket and jalapeño bison sausage with sides of hash browns and mac and cheese. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. Both plates were generously portioned... More

We had a great experience at Smoke! Food was excellent and portions were HUGE! Service was excellent as well. The only drawback was that the resturant was noisy, hard to hear others in our party.But....Great Food!

I ate here twice, because the food is really good for the area and also very affordable. You can't go wrong with the barbecued meats and the mac and cheese. They also have great coleslaw variations and fried okra. Nice bartender and friendly people.

I took my 3 children out for lunch. We ordered our meals and I ordered a basket of fries for everyone to share. The fries came out first which should have been a red flag. We all started to eating them. Our meals came and my daughter said "Mom, there are toothpicks in our fries!" I looked in the basket... More

Our favorite place for barbecue. I love the pulled park. My husband always goes for the ribs. My other favorite is the pork/green chili macaroni - its "to die for".

Reasonably priced and nice atmosphere. It is a bit cold but if you sit at a booth, it is okay. Great food, especially the coleslaw. They should put up a plastic barrier at the front door for the winter

I love going to Smoke. The food is diverse lusciously tasty. Multiple types of BBQ sauce and a very full menu. The atmosphere is friendly and lively and the owners are extraordinarily community minded.

We just picked this restaurant based on reviews of other customers, and the ratings were accurate. The food was great with generous portions and the pricing was reasonable. If I had to do it over, I would have made a reservation. We arrived at 5:45 and had to wait 45 minutes for a table. It was worth the wait, thought... More

We are a neighborhood-oriented, made from scratch, casual restaurant. The feel is young, hip transcending the perception of BBQ restaurants past. Serving a variety of draft and bottled microbrews representing local breweries and popular brews from great BBQ regions (Texas, the Carolinas, Memphis/Arkansas and Kansas City) we feature an approachable wine list and a full line of spirits. The menu is driven by the chefs and their Southern roots, the Great American BBQ traditions as well as seasonal and regional products.
