This is a very good barbeque joint. You can eat in or take out. Both are fine, but I'd probably prefer takeout given the utilitarian nature of their "dining room." Everything was tasty. Good baby back ribs and pulled pork, both of which are specialties....More

The staff was courteous and friendly, the food was good and had some flavor, but for someone who takes BBQ very seriously, it could have been better. The location was clean and my son seemed to have liked it as well.

I had read the reviews & decided to give it a try! I got the pit beef, fries BBQ beans. When does Van De Camps pork & beans qualify? I don't waste food, but 3 bites & it was trashed. Huge disappointment!

Smokey Joe's is a must visit every time we come to St. Mary's County. NC barbecue was spicy, vinegary, and juicy even without sauce. Also love the fresh cooked potato chip fries.

Smokey Joe's meat are always cooked to perfection. A great combination of smokey flavor and perfectly cooked meat. They never overcook the meat and it is never dry. A tasty moist piece of perfection every time!
