Stopped in Cordele while traveling and ate here for dinner. Cute enough on the outside and the inside was nice enough. The manager was walking around helping his ONE waitress on a Saturday night. The waitress was not very friendly. She was obviously stressed out and running around and just wanted to get done what she had to get done.... More

First - the address on here and Google are wrong. They are off I-75 exit 102 right in the SW corner in Cordele. OMG - had the greatest meal ever!! Had my first fried green tomatoes - AMAZING!! The ribs were so meaty and tender. We tried a sample of the Brunswick Stew - never had that before either -... More

Looked on Trip Advisor for a recommendation and was not disappointed. Beef brisket was moist and tender, and not too fatty. Loaded baked potato salad was not homemade, but good. The fried green tomatoes were some of the best I've ever had! I'm traveling, so doubt I'll have a chance to return, but I would recommend.

Recommended by our Bed & Breakfast we found the BBQ to be very tender and seasoned just right. We ordered the ribs and they just fell off of the bone. Side portions were a little small but we did not leave hungry. They are located right off of the interstate and were very easy to find.

We stopped in on our way through just before Christmas. Their new building is very clean and very comfortable. The service was excellent. We ordered a variety of items from the menu including pulled pork, brisket, onion rings, and fries. The pulled pork is finely chopped, which is the style of this area, and was pretty good. The portion was... More

This place is a great place to eat! We always eat here on our way to Miami. Love the food, place and the small town atmosphere. Definitely a must when traveling!

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
