We had a wonderful and delightful visit at Smoakies Bar-B-Que as we passed through Cordele, GA. The quick exit off I-75 at exit 102 led to a prompt, efficient, and filling dinner at a very reasonable price. They have two sauces, a tomato based one and a mustard seasoned sauce that was different. We tried the peach tart ala mode,... More

Driving from So GA to Atlanta, saw billboard and decided to stop. Very busy, usually a good sign. Beautiful ramp, a good sign for me, since I am mobility impaired. First, took forever to place order. Once we got ordered, we got plate, we ordered sandwich, bbq pork. Sauce bottles sticky from previous customers, disgusting. Did not particularly care for... More

What a find just off I75. The best BQ and full of southern charm. The staff couldn't been friendlier. We started with fried pork rinds and the best fried green tomatoes I ever tasted. They were lightly battered and fried crispy and the tomato was so fresh. Meals included pork plates, ribs, chicken fingers and the kids chopped pork sandwich.... More

As we were checking out at a local store we told the cashier we were looking for some good Georgia barbecue. She said, 'there's only one place you should go'. She gave us very specific corner to corner directions, but we still drove by this little restaurant. The big sign can be seen from the highway, it is on the... More

Of course we looked at trip advisor to find a BQ restaurant to eat in as we were passing through and of course like nearly all the recommendation was right on. The server could not have been better, she was everywhere, the BQ sandwich was right on and the sauce was fantastic. We used the sweet stuff, I am sure... More

Smoakies is an excellent family barbecue restaurant. The interior is very clean and bright. Service is fast and very friendly. We ate the regular brisket plates which come with bread and 2 large sides. Delicious! Prices are very reasonable and our meals were a great value.

We found this place a few years ago heading south to Florida on vacation. Noticed a sign off the interstate, so we decided to be daring. 6 years later we still stop, well, we obviously haven't in a couple years. The aren't off the beaten path anymore. Great location, wheelchair accessible, nice indoors and same great BBQ. Owner is hands... More

We came for dinner on Friday. The location has changed, and is no longer at the one shown on TripAdvisor - just follow the billboard on I-75: it's on the west side of the interstate now. Great tasting brisket, and the service was incredible, anticipating our every wish. We were taken care of by our waitress, someone who appeared to... More

Great BBQ and Brisket! Bake beans and their BBQ sauces were also great! Also had a great meaty Brunswick stew. Chicken strips were cooked to order. Had indoor and outdoor seating.

And believe me,this is the cleanest,nicest,barbecue restaurant you will ever come across!!The waitresses are top notch,especially the tall sandy brown haired girl!
