Walked across the street from our Comfort Suites room on staff recommendation for dinner at Smokey Bones BBQ and were not disappointed. The brisket was so tender it could be cut with a fork. Baby back rib combo and loaded potato soup were very good...More

When we visit Springfield we always eat here. The ribs are to die for and husband had Hawaii ribeye which he said was good. Our waitress was quick and very efficient. We will be back.

Impressive menu and personable waitstaff. Great food and service despite a good crowd on a night offering AYCE special. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and the ribs were excellent!

We went there on a Saturday afternoon for a quiet dinner before the rush in the evening. The booth was dirty and required cleaning and the floor looked very messy as well. There was food and trash particles nearly everywhere we looked. The waitress was...More
