We arrived at Smokey Bones and we were the only one there except for a man picking up a takeout order. Obviously there was an issue. We could not believe that we stood there for at least 5 minutes without one person greeting us. We were very close to leaving. My husband finally got the attention of the lady working... More

Eight here with a family of four on a Monday night. Enjoyed watching Monday night football. Arrived late but was pleasantly surprised that after 9 PM they have a discounted menu. Lots of entrée choices and appetizers at 25% off or so. Ultimate nachos for eight dollars was a great choice. Different types of mac & cheese were enjoyed by... More

My husband and I recently ate at this restaurant. It has a very large menu with a variety of items, however their specialty is barbecue items. My husband had a perfectly cooked steak. He did comment on it being quite salty, so I would suggest requesting no seasoning and adding your own at the table. I had a combination plate... More

We were in town visiting family and went for lunch. I had the baby back ribs with original sauce. The ribs just melted off the bone but still had a great crust. The sauce was very good as well. Others had the brisket sandwich which looked good as well. Good variety on the menu even if you don't want BBQ.... More

Great food!!!! Delicious margaritas made by our bartender Cole! Fun, relaxed atmosphere! Miranda was also a very awesome bartender! Pulled pork and chicken were tender, smoked to perfection and melt in your mouth! Glad we stopped by while waiting for I-4 traffic to clear.

I like the food here. The wings are good size and they have many good sauces. I like the brisket sandwich, and the build your own burgers. The interesting thing at this place is that they put pork or BBQ sauce in things like loaded fries, and Cubans. For desert, the donuts with dipping sauce is a must. Good manager... More

We eat here often and enjoy the friendly folks as well as the best onion rings ever! The available hours make this a great late dinner stop as well an after church lunch stop.
