I've been to Red Smoke several times and it's always good. Try the spinach salad and add pulled pork. Very good. Salads and sandwiches are great. The cookies are huge and delicious. Recommended.

I had a very nice meal consisting of some top shelf tri-tip and some excellent sides. Spent some time talking to the owner and was impressed with his passion to provide an excellent product. I'll definitely be returning.

The best little secret eatery delivers every time. We can arrive half hour before closing and be served the same delicious food as early evening. My favorite is the half chicken combo plate. Save room for a cookie. The best feature is that the taste of the food is enhanced by smoke not overwhelmed by it. We visit at least... More

I've been to Red Smoke several times. The pulled pork sandwiches and the salads are very good. We frequently get food to go as it's close to a work location for us. The chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies are fantastic and can definitely be shared. Recommended.

Went there for a late lunch and got their version of a chicken Caesar salad. It was very big and very good. I highly recommend it.

Food was good. You order at the counter and then pick it up. Plenty of room to eat in the restaurant. I had the combination platter with three meats. It was $19.99 and comes with a choice of two sides. I chose the coleslaw and the baked beans. They were both good. The Tri Tip was very good and had... More

Average strip mall restaurant. Staff not very knowledgable about what they were serving. Order and pickup from counter. Burger meat not listed or priced as grass fed but staff after asking around finally claimed it was. When asked if they had a smoker, several of the staff had no idea or didn't know what one was. Finally claimed they did... More

I have read many reviews of this small Ptown deli/restuarant, and was disappointed. The BBQ tritip sandwich was more well done then medium rare, MR is what I prefer. My business associate suggested I say something, so I went back to the counter. I will admit that I had taken 3-4 bites on the sandwich. The person behind the counter... More
