Been here a few times. Will return in the future. Food is good. Service is average. I like the different sauces at the table. All in all its a satisfying experience but nothing fantastic

Don't get the brisket. My wife and I had supper here on a Tuesday. She got the pulled pork sandwich, which came with an abundant helping of moist pork. Collards and bbq bean sides were good. I got the brisket sandwich; I cannot recommend it. Three thin, dry, pale slices arrayed like an asterisk covering about 60% of the bottom... More

Smoke doesn't disappoint! Their fried pickles are made in house and delicious! Their BBQ nachos are enough to feed an army! All of their portions are very generous! Brisket is always tender and delicious! Visit Smoke on a regular basis and never leave hungry or disappointed! Their patio is awesome when weather is nice!

The BBQ is out of this world. The beer is cold and the outside patio is the best place to site and eat.

New to the area, first time trying. Julie was our server and gave excellent service. We shared the brisket sandwich and the pork sandwich. For each sandwich entree you get 2 sides, with lots to choose from! We had the fries, coleslaw, mashed potatoes and gravy and the BBQ beans. After leaving we thought we could have actually just shared... More

Smoke is hands down, a delicious place. I have been a couple times and each time I've tried something different. Each time I've been impressed. The only thing I didn't really enjoy was the greens. It is a little bit on the pricy side when you think BBQ but not outrageous. Plus they give you a large enough portion to... More

Smoke is a very good local barbecue restaurant. The portions are amazing in that you will probably bring some home. The pork,chicken and brisket are all outstanding. Appetizers like smoked devil eggs and texas caviar are fun. It has a nice outdoor patio on a good weather night. Smoke also likes to be involved in the community which makes it... More

Good food with good service. It not the best the barbeque I have ever had, but it is better than most anything around in this area.

We were just in NN for the day and asked a local florist to recommend a great restaurant - and she did ! We loved the BBQ platter at Smoke ! There was enough meat to have another meal at home the next day. The cole slaw was ordinary - nothing special and the fries were good, but not great.... More

Some of my friends from Carolina were visiting in the area, so we met up for lunch at the Smoke BBQ Restaurant and Bar. The service was good, but it took a long time for the corn muffins to come to the table. They arrived after our deviled egg appetizer. The deviled eggs had a little pulled pork and bbq... More
