We have been purchasing BBQ from Smokeys since moving here in 2003 I can not count how many times we have picked up the Family Pack when we had people visiting. The meat is consistently tender and we love both the white and traditional sauces The side dishes are also excellent. We have tried every BBQ place around and keep... More

I've been there myself and this time I took two coworkers. This place is OMG good. Staff is nice and food if off the chain.

When we lived in Madison we used to go to Smokey's all the time. It was consistently good and they provided catering to many events in which I attended. There was never a down day on any of the catered meals. In this case I had a BBQ chicken sandwich. It was just not that good, and I'm not a... More

We are new to the area and systematically trying the many BBQ joints in the area. Smokey' has now taken over the number one spot in our mind. While the wait was a little longer, the food was hot which isn't always the case when picking up BBQ. The ribs were meaty and stood on their own dry. Pulled pork... More

Bbq is pretty good and love their baked beans which contain bbq meat. Very reasonable prices. Discounts for military, firemen, and police.

I've eaten here several times, the meals are not consistent sometimes the meals are great and sometimes there below average. They need to hire more mature workers some times the young people who work there are playing around and not serious. But given the right manager this place could be much better.

Went to Smokey's for Sunday lunch. Upon ordering, we were told that the baked potatoes would not be ready for another 40 minutes. Instead I order a pork sandwich. My side was french fries. My companion's side was Brunswick Stew. The staff did not pay enough attention to know that the order was ready and the sides were not as... More

The BBQ is just the way I like it! Only gave 4 stars is cause they need to update the facility a little in my opinion, but the food is more than worth it.

Been eating at Smokey's for several years, after relocating to the area. Always great food, with many selections. All their entrees are great, from the BBQ right down to the southern fried catfish. Smokey's sauce is the best I've had. (I prefer the mild red sauce, but they offer a spicier version, too.) Great selection of sides. Always friendly and... More

I'm not real particular about BBQ, they pretty much all taste the same to me. I like Smokey's, I've never gotten a glob of fat that I can recall. I do like their potato salad, I've stopped in to get just that to accompany a home meal. The service is always quick and friendly.
