Location and contact

Smoky Dreams BBQ uses only the freshest meats and produce. Everything is cooked daily with delectable, original seasonings and sauces. Smoked to perfection . . . Pork, chicken, ribs and even the wings literally fall off the bone. The hash and the vinegar slaw are truly unique and there's creamy lemon and peanut butter pie to top it off.

This is the best BBQ in Greenville. The brisket is awesome as is the Mac & Cheese. You can't make a wrong choice.

Stopped here after getting off a flight and was looking for a local place to get good food. Found this little place and was not disappointed. Chris was very genuine and the food was great. Try the mayo sauce.

I ate here for the first and only time in early August, a thoroughly bland experience not worth recounting until reading all of these rave reviews posted since. The BBQ here is, on its best day, 3-star. The taste is certainly not off-putting, but I...More

No, I am sorry we do not. We do, however, have a partnership with What's on Tap, which is located just behind us. They have a great selection of beers on tap!
