Nice cozy little BBQ place. We were created with friendliness when we walked in. The owner asked how everything was. Service was great and the food was excellent. Were from Florida amd have eaten alot of BBQ but in our opinion this place by far had the best food. The brunswick stew is awesome and the vidalia onion.. YUM! We... More

It had been several years since I had been to Smoakies (old location) and wanted to give it a try once again. Read posted reviews and was looking forward to visit. We had a pulled pork plate and a beef brisket plate plus 4 sides to share. Was very disappointed with portions served, especially the meats and the brisket was... More

We had brisket, chicken, ribs, Brunswick stew and shredded barbecue for a family party! Wow. It was all delicious. But the brisket was exceptional- the best I've ever eaten. So tender - no knife necessary. Sauces were also tasty. Can't decide which sauce was my favorite. I need to go back soon.

Good quality Pork Pig Barbecue. Excellent and friendly service. Quickly set up tables for our group of 9 and provided good service throughout the meal.

We read reviews about Smoakies and decided to drive down and check it out. So glad we did. The beef brisket and the chopped pork BBQ were really good, and the house made sauces were delicious. I tried the fried green tomatoes and the potato salad and thought both were super tasty! Not a fancy place by any means, but... More

Smoakies Bar-B-Que is locally owned. From the sandwiches to the ribs, you cannot go wrong. If you are in Cordele, you albsolutely have to eat here. If you are traveling and want good food not far off the interstate, take exit 102 on I-75 and it's right there. If going south, take exit 102, bear to the right, and it's... More

Right off the interstate, newer building with a down-home feel delivers great BBQ and the best fried pies/turnovers you can imagine ... peach is my favorite; the banana pudding is also off the chain!

If you want to skip chain food and have a real local experience, this is the place. The barbecue chicken was excellent as were the fried green tomatoes,onion rings and beans. The fried pickle chips were quite salty and the pork ribs, though good, were a bit overdone and dry. They do offer a selection of sauces. This is a... More

Driving northbound I-75 from Tampa, we found this awesome place on Trip Advisor and we were pleased! The fried green tomatoes were the best my bride's ever had; they had a thin batter and we're crispy but still very juicy inside. The ribs were nicely seasoned with a rub and the meat came right off the bone. The chopped barbecue... More
