Huge portions, great flavor. No one left with an empty belly or unhappy with their choices. The ribs are HUGE! Don't miss out on this one!

Our first time at a Smokin' Joes. Fun atmosphere and busy place over lunch. She ordered the Spicy Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and black-eyed Peas. I wanted to try several things so I ordered the 3-meat dinner. I requested Ribs, Pork Loin and Link Sausage. They delivered her meal without the mashed potatoes. They delivered my meal with Brisket instead... More

Overall the food was okay. Servers could have been more friendly. It took them forever to prepare a table for 8 people. The turkey meat was very dry and had no taste.

We were a big family group and considering that, the food did take awhile to come. My brisket deluxe sandwich was huge and moist and tasty. The bread was okay. Most of our party didn't like the Parmesan on their salads. But we enjoyed the portion sizes and the ribs had lots of meat on them.

Excellent food, large portions. I had a bbq salad with pork. I could only eat half. Score of 4 because of the five meals ordered, mine was delivered considerably later than everyone else's hot food. They were all being courteous and waiting before starting to eat. So while my salad was being made, their food was getting cold. Other than... More

The BBQ brisket was very good. I had a hot link that was added to my sandwich. I was pleasantly surprised at the hot link. I thought it might be hot but it wasn't. It was very flavorful. I would go certainly go again.
