I have NEVER EVER had a bad experience at SMOKEY's. Their pit beef is to die for and my wife feels the same about the pit turkey. The sides are always fresh and delicious and always fill me up. The family run atmosphere definitely makes it a wonderful place to visit for lunch or dinner even if I have had... More

We had dinner and lunch at Smokey's in the past. Typically, it has been pit beef or pulled pork. This past trip we tried the BBQ Chicken and it was very good. Enjoy!

If you liked pit beef give them a try, they have been around for a long time and do a solid job. I really enjoy the sliced pork, hand cut french fries, and ribs. Worth a visit.

Definitely a locals place. They expect you to know what to do, even if it's your first time. Wouldn't order the spare ribs again, but the ocean fries are good. Would stop by again for a quick pit sandwich.

My husband and I just love this restaurant. It doesn't have a large menu but you are never disappointed in anything you order. The beef is wonderful and also the turkey. You can get it on a roll or open face. The chili and crab soup is great and I always order the potatoe salad to go for another meal.... More

Smokey's is tucked away in a shopping center and easily missed. But find it and you'll be sure to make it a regular stop. Their ribs, BBQ sandwiches are awesome. Try them out....you won't be disappointed!

We love the ease of ordering at Smokey's and the fact that the food is fresh. This time though, my wife's medium beef was well cooked and the cashier needs to focus and pay attention. It's not just the little things that turn a good place into a great place...keep trying.

We typically get carryout from Smokey's almost every month. I haven't tried the ribs yet but most of everything else especially the pit beef or turkey sandwiches, and then there is their fries. This a family owned place and we see them all the time we pickup or eat in. They are open 6 days a week and closed on... More
