I moved to Texas 3 1/2 years ago eager to taste Texas BBQ, coming from Atlanta where the BBQ is completely different. I have his almost all the famous BBQ places in South Texas and the San Antonio/Austin areas. This restaurant has just been expanded, and I find its beef brisket and pork loin to be the BEST I have...

It smells great as soon as you walk in. I got the Frito pie dish, and it was very good. The fact that I got it to go did not take away from the quality. It was my first time there, and the staff was patient and answered questions, they even gave me a sample. I definitely recommend it.

This is BBQ that is good every time. Not cheap, but what good BBQ is? They have stayed open...order from the little food truck on the side..even though they are working hard to finish the remodel by mid Dec. Get the regular pork ribs, baby backs are a bit dry.

I used to think this was the best BBQ in SA. I don't live in the area where the restaurant is, but when I'm in that part of town I try to go there. So yesterday I'm in that area, salivating at the thought of yummy BBQ. They are serving out of a food truck because the restaurant is being... More

The restaurant was undergoing renovation but the food was excellent! Best brisket in San Antonio and I tried enough others to know :-)

We live in San Antonio and have tried several different BBQ places in town, but Smoky Mo's is far better than the rest. I usually get the loaded baked potato with brisket, but today I went with Baby back ribs, buttered potatoes and Cole slaw. Um, um, um so delicious! My wife had pork ribs, buttered potatoes, and pinto beans,... More

There are many hyped barbeque places in San Antonio, but Smokey Mo's may be the the best kept secret in town. Their smoking technique results in a classic taste and their spices are spot on! Their sauce is also great. We buy their bottled sauce to take home and use at the house. I'd also highly recommend thier green beans... More

This was our first ever Texas bbq so I'm no expert. But having said that it was amazing, the brisket was outstanding. If you come to Texas you simply have to have Texas bbq and smokey mo's ticked all the boxes for us.

Food was good and tasty. I got the chicken and they gave me more than enough. Their sauce is great. I would visit again. Also I am disappointed that I didn't get a bottle to go, it's only like 9 bucks for a very large bottle. I visited from out of town. Will pick up one on my next visit
