Took a client to Smoke's Plano location this week to give it a try. I've been to all of the top rated places in DFW multiple times, and am on a personal mission to visit all of Texas Monthly's Top 50. So I had to give it a shot. This is not your typical Texas BBQ spot where you pick... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch before flying back home because we heard good things. The brisket would have been decent for Atlanta but this is Dallas. And when places like Lockharts and Pecan Lodge are down the road you probably need to bring your A game. That said I never really saw that Smoke claimed to be a... More

I visited Smoke a few weeks ago for dinner. It's one of my boss's favorite restaurants near the Bishop Arts District. The only negative comment I have pertains to the valet staff. (I'll get to that later.) Upon entering the establishment I was greeted by two extremely nice young employees and immediately I loved the decorum and intimate the atmosphere.... More

Went to Smoke for a lunch with some friends I haven't seen in 15 years. Smoke was able to accommodate our table of 7 without a reservation making me look like a local expert. Thanks everyone. My son ordered The Full Monte; I can't believe he finished it all. I had the All Natural Pulled Whole Hog, NC Style. The... More

Our group of three had appetizers of pimento cheese balls and the hummus. Both dishes were excellent! We shared the roasted chicken and the brisket. The brisket was so tender and delicious! The chicken was good also. Service was good, Tanner was very pleasant. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. The manager has done a fantastic job!

The restaurant SMOKE had been recommended by several people and we actually own their cookbook, so we went for lunch. Really nice place, more a restaurant than a BBQ joint. We had an EXCELLENT waiter, James, who was a sous chef somewhere else previously and because of his cooking knowledge was able to talk very intelligently about BBQ and how... More

This restaurant was right next door to the Belmont Hotel, where we stayed. We had over 40 in our party, so we got the private room and dined family style. Everything was beyond fabulous. The staff was excellent and the bloody Marys were smoky and to die for. I have never had another one as good since! I am anxious... More

Friendly and fast service. Good coffee. Creative breakfast offerings. Had the smoked brisket cornbread hash. Very interesting mix of flavors, smoky, sweet, spicy. Not sure I have anything like it before. My companion had the biscuits and gravy and it was more then enough for her breakfast. Conveniently located next to the very quirky Belmont hotel. Will be back again... More

All of the in-laws, kids and family, had the honor of eating at SMOKE. This was a group of 13! The staff could not have been more attentive and the food was great! Usually, not a big BBQ fan, but SMOKE changed my mind. The best thing was that the pricing was phenomenal along with the atmosphere. Cocktails were amazing... More

This has been the very first restaurant we visited in Dallas, and it was an all-around GREAT experience! The BBQ, which we looked forward to very much, was on point, the bartender was super nice, and the atmosphere was lovely! We highly recommend it!

Thank Melmelmar
