I smile as I write this review. In central Illinois is an infamous meal called "The Horseshoe". If you're faint of heart you can instead order "The Pony shoe". Really! Anyway they don't sell them at the Smokey Bones. BBQ is very good at the Smokey Bones. Sports bar setup with plenty of televisions and good view from the tables... More

This is a frequent visit of mine when I'm in town, but they always change their menu and leave me disappointed when one of my favorites is off. I still always love everything I get. They don't get 5 stars because of their limited options (more non-red meat options please!). But it's always packed, especially on the weekends. And they... More

My husband & I have had takeout from Smokey Bones before, but we had not eaten at the restaurant. We had received coupons in the mail and decided to go. It was a most enjoyable experience from start to finish. Our wait was not long and was accompanied by music we did not recognize but enjoyed. Our server, Maddy appeared... More

Long wait, food was average, but very small portions for what it cost. My meal cost $20 and it was equivalent to a $12 meal in Omaha BQ

Excellent baby back ribs, BBQ Baked Beans and mac and cheese. Excellent service from Kayleigh. Inexpensive and well worth the money. Highly recommended.

This used to be one of my all time favorites. However in the last several months the service and the food have really gone down hill a bit. I am not a picky person and I never send food back but I was completely unable to eat the Loaded Nachos I ordered for lunch. The chips were very stale and... More

Better than I was told. Great big portions. You get your money's worth. The food was absolutely fabulous. My salmon salad was great. Salmon juicy and done. I got a appetizer of onion rings. Oh my it was a huge portion that could have fed 5 people. Please if you come to Springfield Illinois try this place out. This restaurant... More
