Okay, You have to give it to them that they are good at what they say they do at Smokey Joes. Their ribs tasted good, their portions where sizable, and their price was reasonable. My One big But, was the smell of the place. Maybe it was just me, or may be it was the original idea, the place smelled... More

We went to this establishment because it advertised BBQ food, but I was disappointed there were very few items on the menu that were actually be considered BBQ. I had a pulled pork sandwich which was very good. Onion rings also were very good. My husband had a cheeseburger which was also delicious. Lots of local beers on tap. Service... More

I was in town for the weekend and craving a good pulled pork sandwich. The corn bread and sweet potato fries were amazing. The pulled pork sandwich was not good. The bbq sauce tasted aweful.

Smoked Joe's was recommended by the Front Desk Clerk at the Clarion Inn where we were staying. We went to watch our hometown NFL team and the Barkeep set up a screen for us to watch the 4PM game. Service was excellent......burger was excellent as was the pulled pork.

Went for drinks and snacks in the afternoon. Josh and Wendy were hands down phenomenal, and made us feel like we were at their home. Warm and welcoming, and attentive. An excellent representation of your business! The fried green beans were delicious, the quesadilla outstanding, but the bleu cheese burger was hands down the best burger any of us have... More

We went here during the Adirondack Nationals car show so it was crazy busy. With that said, we were seated very quickly (lucky timing on our part) and waited on relatively quickly considering how busy it was. The food was just okay other than the ribs which were phenomenal. They were understaffed for the number of patrons that were trying... More

I was in Lake George and was wanting some BBQ...the motel manager told us about this place and it was close by. I ordered a combo plate with ribs, chicken breast, roasted potatoes, and beans. The best part was the ribs, everything else was average at best. The worst was the chicken. It tasted like it was pulled from a... More
