For the first time ever we went to the Smoke Tree Barbecue Restaurant, located off E. Palm Canyon Dr. south on So. Sunrise Way, a short half-block behind Giuseppes(great Italian Restaurant and happy hour lounge) after I developed a craving for ribs and we weren't disappointed. We ordered take out Baby Back Ribs 1/2 Rack for me, with 2 sides, coleslaw and BBQ Beans, and Pork Burnt Ends and Onion Rings for my wife. Took only 6-8 minutes and the food to go was brought out hot with small containers of pickles and onions, 2 different barbecue sauces(one very hot), and a small container of ketchup. Food quality and flavor was outstanding with generous portions. The pork ribs and burnt ends are cooked with a dry rub, and wood that offers a great flavor.This was some of the best pork BBQ we've ever had.

Restaurant has a very small quaint bar and offered a small dining area. Again the food quality was high, prices moderate, and the food is great for taking back to your timeshare, motel, or home. We'll certainly be returning.

We enjoyed our meal here, and the service was very friendly. My husband and I ordered burgers, and didn't know that they are typically cooked medium unless otherwise specified (don't recall the menu saying anything to that regard). Where we live, ground beef has to be cooked well done to avoid E. Coli, so we never thought that we had to specify. Our burgers were dripping red juices and neither of us could eat them. We mentioned it to the waiter and he immediately took them away and brought us our two more that were fully cooked. SO good of them. And the burger was great!

My wife and I have been in Palm Springs for six months and have eaten BBQ once. I had a craving for ribs/pulled pork. We threw a dart at several offerings and STBBQ&G was the winner. And what a winner it was. We split a full rack of ribs and a full dinner of pulled pork. Four sides came with the two dinners. We chose baked beans(excellent flavor),cole slaw(delicious, even though it needed a bit more sauce),potato salad(very tasty), and mac&cheese(not as creamy as I prefer, but okay). A choice of four different sauces add to the already delicious meat. My favorite was a nicely spicy XXX Texas savory style while my wife enjoyed the same plus a S Carolina style mustard based sauce. Service was very attentive and prices were very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food we enjoyed. Two thumbs up from us.

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch here. The House burger with blue cheese was big and juicy and cooked to perfection. The pulled chicken sandwich was tender flavorful chicken actually pulled from the bone and placed in the bun and not the usual shredded chicken in bottled bbq sauce.
The service was fast, attentive and very friendly. We'd definitely eat here again.
Their house bbq sauces are fantastic. We enjoyed dipping the best garlic fries we've eaten in all of them.

BBQ choices in Palm Springs are slim but we loved it here.
We shared a full rack of baby backs and a pulled pork dinner. We loved our choices.
My only comments would be the Mac and cheese was dry and prefer a more creamy cole slaw. The flavor of the Cole slaw was delicious with a touch of horseradish.
Really the next time it will be 5 stars with the right sides.
