Smokin' Joe's is a great mom and pop restaurant that offers excellent food, a very pleasant ambience, and great prices. Their BBQ pit is situated in front of the restaurant, so when you are driving through Townsend towards Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you can't help but pick up the aroma of BBQ on the grill. Their hush puppies are an absolute must. We recommend ordering them as an appetizer and sharing with others at the table. You will want to order at least 2 sides with your sandwich because they are the tastiest sides you will find in any restaurant in the South. I always order the baked beans and potato salad. There is no doubt the hush puppies are the best you will find anywhere. Smokin' Joe's is a must stop on your travels to the Smoky Mountains. The service is somewhat slow but well worth the wait.
