“I like decoration and ambiance”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

If you want to taste some southern american food this is the place, I like when chefs are there for you, checking the food and looking for the quality, this is not the exception. The food is good but the ambiance is the best. I love the french fries over there.. congrats

“good place to hang out....”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

If you want something different, definitely have to try smoqe, great Jack Daniels chicken wings, fries and hamburguers with really good flavor. The only turndown could be there is only one person serving tables, so it could take a while to receive your food, even if your meal it's ready on the shelf. 7/10

“Only Good BBQ in Quito area”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

Smoqe is located in the Cumbaya valley below Quito in a plaza with a nice atmosphere and indoor or outdoor seating. I ate there with a group and everybody agreed that the BBQ was excellent (brisket) as were the hamburgers. They also serve a local microbrew which is very difficult to find in the Quito area. So, if you're looking for a great lunch spot or what is probably the best - if not only - southern style BBQ, this is the place.

“great!”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Yummy food, manager very accomodating and friendly. I have food allergies and this is one of the only places in Quito--probably because the owner is American--where they are understanding of this and helpful. Will be back!

“Great Burgers are always a plus...”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

I came back home to Quito for a holiday 3 months ago, my brother introduce to this place and it was so worth it, the owner is an american guy, the place has burgers and southern food from the US. A must if looking for a good burger in Quito even tough is located in the valley Cumbaya about 20-30 minutes away.
