Sweet and smoky barbecue with a hint of heat is the specialty here. Ribs, brisket, pulled pork and other meats fill the menu. Chicken fried steak and burgers are also available. Very casual; tables and chairs in the middle and booths along the wall. Farmers...More

Travel through small towns and limited cafe choices is daunting. We came upon Smokey Ben's and we're thrilled with the results. The pulled pork & smoked turkey sandwiches were wonderful, as well as the baked beans. The onion rings are superior. The food is not...More

Go for the brisket, stay for the cobbler. It is big enough to share, but you won't want to. Pleasant and reasonable.

This was a business lunch. Waitress was very, very patient, accomodating and friendly. We had ribs, slaw, brisket and french fries. The ribs were meaty and smoked so that the meat almost fell off the bones....absolutely delicious. I got the impression that there are new...More

Reliable, if not out-of-this-world smoked meats are the thing here. Ribs and brisket are the best choices, with sides of beans and slaw. Nothing surprising, but nothing bad. The locals think it's a bit pricey, but it's not, considering the quality and quantity of the...More
