I love the food here. It has a great variety of smoked meats and barbecue sauces. They have great lunch specials. My only complaint is last time I checked they cooked fries in hydrogenated oil so that's not good. But it's always great food, and...More

I've been here 3 times- never by my choice and I will never return. Brunch was the last time. They were refilling the pans and placing the spoons that everyone was holding (with their potentially grimy hands) right in the pans on the food. Even...More

Food is very good. Due to it being a "Smokehouse" the meat does have a smoky taste to it. If you are not expecting that, you may not like it. Staff was nice for the most part.

Nice decor, attractive facility with nice ambience. Had the brisket with two sides. Brisket was tender, juicy and flavorful. The sides were really good, especially the cole slaw and collard greens. Final price was very reasonable for two.

Plenty of TV's, lots of beers to choose from and the BBQ choices are excellent. The sauces are really good and easy to get in and out. They have some car shows in the summer as well. Nice place, you need to try it!

The macaroni and cheese is smoked, too. Love the smoked pork and the ribs are tender and very good. My favorite would be the ribs. Real nice atmosphere and accomodating for large crowds and groups. Highly recommend if you like smoked foods!

Casual atmosphere and a good variety of food. BBQ is the specialty but other sandwiches are pretty good. Good house wine.

I have to begin by saying I am competition barbecue chef so I tend to be very critical with my reviews of bbq restaurants. That being said The Burning Oak is average BBQ. Definitely worth a try.
