I love BBQ...so I am always ready to try a new BBQ place. Smokin Joe's was VERY good...but it just didn't make the bump to great. The sides were great...the meat was great...but the sauce was just very good. I like a little sweeter sauce.

Excellent menu for bbq, sandwiches, salads and sides. Fresh and flavorful! Service is great and takeout is available. And, it's a family friendly place with room for large groups.
