For a chain restaurant the food was amazing. We ordered from the ceate your own combo, I ordered smoked wings and smoked ribs and my husband ordered ribs and brisket, everything was so delicious. We visited a second time and ordered the slow-smoked spiced sausage which was incredible. Their mopping sauces are yummy too. We sat at the bar and... More

I've been here three times now (once with my kids, twice as a date night with my husband.) The food has been consistently good here for us each time. My only complaint is the service. Our first visit, it was outstanding. The other two times, mediocre at best. Both times we were put in a corner and our waitresses stayed... More

Visiting the area and we always like to try new places. Can't go wrong with BBQ. Got the BBQ pulled pork street tacos. Really good. The BBQ sauce had a nice kick to it. Waitress was friendly and on top of things. Must try the kids Bubbleade!

Food awesome and service okay. We were there to celebrate birthday...received coupon for free dessert and had a coupon for $10 on at least $25 purchase. Past years we allowed to use both coupons. We chose a dessert to go, and our server came back to let us know they couldn't take both coupons. We told her nevermind the dessert... More

This was the first time at Smokey Bones that the food hasn't been very good. I had a hamburger that looked great but basically had no taste. The meat was overcooked with no grilled flavor at all. I ordered it with a "lettuce bun" which was actually a pretty nice option. Our server was very nice and extremely attentive.

Last visited three years ago and this visit remided me why I stayed away from Smokey Bones. A young waiter was our server and I use that term loosely. We began by ordering two coffees. So the coffees arrived ; MINUS spoons & sweeteners. I had to chase two other waiters for the items. Since people today have an attention... More
