Great BBQ. I could eat at Smokehouse 2 or 3 times a week. The prime beef short ribs are awesome and the BBQ beans are a must try.

Your stomach starts grumbling upon entry. Must haves: rib tips, beans, more beans, fried cauliflower, Friday $5 Long Island ice tea, and the prime ribs. Eat early like all other BBQ places, but stay late for the drinks. Bartenders are top notch!

Prior to visiting a new eatery I always check their menu. I use Google to locate their website. Usually you will find prices associated with the menu items.
