We popped in on a Monday evening and had a fantastic meal for the two of us. We ordered half chicken and some ribs and boy were the portions huge... our advice, order quarter and half! Lovely food and beautifully cooked 😀

Went here with a group of mates for some food and drinks. Didn't disappoint at all despite some of the negative reviews I've read on here. The food was out of this world. Exactly what I'd been told by my fellow diners who frequent this place. I had a southern fried blowout chicken burger. It was absolutely lovely and juicy... More

My partner had the pulled pork which she said was very tasty. I had the slab of ribs which were enormous. They were very tender and the meat fell off the bone. For me the meat lacked flavour. It needed more dry rub on them and there wasn't enough BBQ sauce over them. I'm comparing them to the ribs I... More

We visit smokeys every time we come to brighton and are yet to find any fault in this place. The food is amazing with massive portions for a great price. The service is superb and staff deserve the added charge. Will be visiting again.

This restaurant is affiliated to the hotel where I was staying so I had breakfast and evening meal here. I had 10% discount off the food in the evening due to being a hotel resident. I chose the vegetarian spicy bean burger with sides of coleslaw and fries and a pint of cobra beer which came to £12.53, which was... More

Fantastic food. But be warned the portions could feed a small army. They also add the service charge on without asking. But well worth it anyway. Highly recommend it.

We went to Smokeys and Had a Hamdog it was bloody delicious it is exactly what it says on the tin a burger cut in half with a hot dog running through the middle. We got 2 sides and the portions were incredibly sized enough to feed 4 or 5 easily. Loved this place,

Spent Saturday in Brighton with friends, and spotted this joint as we wondered pass. I made a mental note to pop in later, and I am so glad we did. Very friendly and courteous staff. Very clean restaurant. But the food ... WOW!! Some of the best Brisket and Baby Back Ribs I've ever had! Cooked to perfection, fell apart... More
