The Smokin' Ox is an exceptionally good barbecue pit. Ambience is very plain, but the food is GREAT! They have quite a menu with all styles of barbecue. The facility is clean and pleasant. Well worth the visit. The restaurant is seasonal so call first.

This casual boite has amazingly good barbecue, a solid list of beer, and a fun crowd. It is small and can get crowded and noisy but worth it!

This restaurant has a perfect setting just of the square and always draws my attention as we walk down town. Unfortunately the food does not live up to the setting. One would expect excellent smoked meats based on the name of the restaurant but they...More

I went there for lunch one time and had the brisket, pulled pork and sausage. I wasn't impressed with it. Don't get me wrong.....it's good but not great. I ALWAYS hit BBQ places when I go to a new city and with the name "Smokin'...More
