Falling off the bone good! After a long day of hiking the Smokies this place hit the spot. Baked beans very good. Didn't like the potato salad but was full in any case. Nice family owned restaurant.

Almost always a wait. Because it's worth it!
It's the BBQ you compare others to. The ribs are wonderful, the pork plate is yummy, the chicken is delightful. The potato skins are amazing!
Get the hushpuppies as a side, they're delicious.
And save room for an ooey-gooey bar for dessert. Have it heated with a scoop of ice cream. You might need an extra spoon to share.

Smokin' Joes (now in its third setting) is the best smokehouse in Townsend. My wife and I are so glad they are back in business. Simple, understated food - can't be beat!

Good food, good service and not crowded. We live in Pigeon Forge, so going out for dinner means waiting a while. So this is a nice place for us to have dinner.

Ate at Joe's our first night back in town. Had a delightful little server - Cheyenne. They were out of ribs but the chicken was a good substitute. Will go back another time for the ribs.
