We had to wait but not long to be seated. It was a little cold at our seat. Overall the food is great every time we come. The wings are awesome. Only thing was they did not have a few things we wanted on the menu like pretzel bones or beef brisket.

It's a chain, so food is consistent. The inside of the restaurant consist of an open floor setting and can get kind of noisy. The food is good and reasonably priced. They do offer lunch specials for around $10. I sat at the bar. The bartender also runs a few tables for lunch.

If you're a chain restaurant fan then this might be for you. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and was disappointed. I wish I would have gotten the salmon because BBQ is def not what this place excels in. I would have gotten equal quality from a prepared jack Daniels rib box from the grocery store.

After trying to get into a few restaurants we decide on Smokey Bones. Overall a good experience. Food was good. I had the double trouble. Family also had steaks and baby backs. Order a large buffalo wing as well. Ribs we great but on the Memphis style I thought the was too much rub added after cooking. Scraped some off... More

Friends took me here for my first visit. The menu was extensive and we all,had different selections....and we all loved them. our server was wonderful and took the time to answer all of my "food" questions as well as my friends inquiries about her "reward card". Since it's a kid friendly place, the noise got a little loud, but otherwise... More

I had the pulled pork and ribs. The pulled pork was very dry and over cooked and the ribs had very little meat on them. The service was good.

Cheers type of atmosphere (w/o knowing your name), rooming, bright restaurant. Lots of menu options EXCEPT for the non-pork eater (brisket served after 4/4:30pm only - we went for lunch), several different chicken variations. My husband had some mac and cheese dish which was AWSOME.

Most of meal is fine. A chain so you know what you order is consistent. But the first time I ordered the beans, I thought it was a "sample". Like when bars give you a taste of a beer. ... and I love beans. What 2 ounces maybe. Since you can order two sides, I had to order two beans... More

A friend of mine and I ate here last week for lunch. He'd never been here before, but wanted to try it, based on my recommendation from a previous visit. We arrived about 11:40 am, so we were among the first lunch guests to show up. We ordered the corned bread (FABULOUS), he had an order of wings (FABULOUS), and... More

Today my lunch included the amazing pulled-pork, the grilled corn, and the warm cinnamon apples. It is always pleasant, and the noise level allows conversations while savoring the meats. Give the place a try if you have not done so before.
