Usually go here only for supper, but I had friends visit from USA, that i took to lunch. We tried the pulled pork on a bun. They raved about the food and the service. A small piece of heaven in a small commercial area.

First off this is not the Mahle House or any other upscale posh eating establishment. This is like an industrial working folks take out cafe. That is how it looks anyways. It is also located in a strip of industrial type businesses. It has a...More

Another trip to Nanaimo and Smokin' George's complete. Deep fried pickles delicious as always. Tried their smoked Mozza sticks and was not disappointed. Highly recommend a visit to Smokin' George's when you visit Nanaimo

If you are not a meat eater, but your companion is, you can go here. Their veggie Sandwich, under $10., is wonderful. Grilled zuchinni, portebello, and a sauce to die for. You won't be disappointed. Best in Nanaimo in my hunble opinion. Kudos.

Drove out here especially from downtown Nanaimo during our visit. I had the pulled chicken, and my boyfriend the pull pork. Reasonable prices, and the food was melt-in-your-mouth good! Would recommend to anyone. It’s definitely a local spot. Delicious!

I eat here frequently. Food here arrives as an ingredient not a product. The end result is a make from scratch, high quality meal at a good price. I particularly like the briquet sandwich, and the fried chicken. The daily specials are always good. The...More

Good part is that the meat was juicy. Bad part is the chicken is extremely plain. Oven roasted chicken has more flavour than this chicken. The paprika mayo did nothing for the sandwich. Bread used for the sandwiches is too sticky - doesn't work well...More

Hi Lorri, Thanks so much for your comments! You are correct, DT is a troll and Trip Advisor has removed his review and questions. And I agree, the best way to deal with a bad experience is to let management know right away... More

Description
Every city worth its salt has a place that locals talk about… you know, that place that serves up the tastiest, smokiest, most delicious BBQ. In Nanaimo, that place is Smokin’ George’s BBQ!

Every day, we’re chopping up seasoned hardwoods to smoke up the most incredible pulled pork, beef brisket, pork ribs, chicken, and sausage this city has ever seen. We bake our cornbread fresh every morning, hand cut buckets of fries and mix up our homemade bbq sauces and dressings, so every time you step in our door, you can smell those flavours in the air. We don’t screw around my friend. We take BBQ very seriously.
