We have eaten here several times - never really had much of an issue. Sometimes service is slow but the food usually makes up for that. Tonight however, horrible experience. We arrived promptly at 5 hoping to beat the dinner crowed, we were told it would be a 30 minute wait. Okay no problem - however over half of the... More

Traveling south on Rt. 81 on a Sunday, my wife and I wanted to watch our favorite NFL team. Our smart phone proved to be just that and came up with Smokey Bones. Calling ahead my wife connected to Adam (one of the bar tenders). Adam was extremely helpful with directions and greeted us when we walked into the bar.... More

Good experience last October...just as good this August! Staff is well trained - consistency is always nice. Food was good-to-excellent both visits. Smoke ring visible on both ribs and brisket...multiple sauces are superb - wish they sold by the bottle for take-home. Excellent value and good price points. Get a combo and include the wings!

We had dinner here tonight (Oct. 15th) and when we first arrived we were told a 40-50 minute wait to get seated.. It was very busy being a Saturday evening. Our wait was only 25 mins. Our server was excellent (Alex? Adam? I am terrible with names) He was prompt with drinks, friendly, knowledgeable, and stopped at our table enough... More

Ignored when entering restaurant/no one at hostess stand. Food was OLD, horrible looking and tasted worse. Have eaten at Chantilly, VA and Richmond, VA locations and they were good. The Roanoke, VA location has serious problems. Will never return.

The food was amazing, I had ribs, --the service was friendly, and it was a pleasurable experience!! We had been traveling for almost 6 hours, and decided to stop for the night. We chose this restaurant from the many that occupy the parking lot around the mall. It was a great choice--I personally do not eat large portions of food,... More

Stopped in based on reviews. Baby back ribs were good however the smoked wings were dry. Dirty rice was not really, just rice with some vegetables. Beer selection was good and service was very good
