Typical modern American cuisine. Ribs, burgers, onion rings and fries. Serviced by good, experienced waitress. Enjoyed food, good for a quick bite.

Had the Sammy BBQ sandwich with baked beans. Lots of pork piled on the bun, and the baked beans were sweet. All washed down with one of the many draft beers they had on tap. Will go back!😋

My wife and I ate here while I was in the Springfield area on business. We were staying just down the road at one of several hotels and had a taste for some BBQ. I have to say that it was great. The place is big and looked really clean. The service was really good too. Reasonably priced for the... More

Packed, and there was a wait. Our server needed to go back to training school. Called everyone "sweetie" and would disappear to get a refill, etc, and not show up for long lengths of time. She had lots of excuses. There were 7 of us. Our meal arrived in 2 and 3 entrees at a time. The span was so... More

First time visit to Smokey Bones. Had to wait for about 20 minutes on Friday night. Our server, Brandon, took a lot of time to explain the menu to us and was so personable. Our food was brought to us in just a short time after ordering. The food was delicious, but truthfully we have had better BBQ. However, the... More

This is a popular steak and ribs place which have some of the best barbecue ribs in town. It is moderately priced and their food is consistent every time and worth visiting.

I stayed at the hotel across the street, so came over for some barbecue and a drink. Miranda was a great bartender who made my yummy sangria. Although they were busy on Saturday night, her service was excellent. I had pulled pork; it was very good with the slaw. I'll be back!

We enjoyed delicious beer, wings and ribs after a long day of touring. Many TVs to watch your favorite sports team. This was our first visit and our server, Tracy, was happy to recommend the type of wings and ribs that she likes the best. She was correct! They were excellent.
