One of, if not my favorite BBQ place. There sauce is the tomato based Virginia style as opposed to the NC vinegar style. The portions are huge! My wife and I can easily split their sandwich if we get an extra side. My daughter and I like their fried pickles as well. The prices are fair about $10-$15/person for lunch... More

I have had take-out only and have always been impressed. I dont know why I have to write 100 or more characters when I said all I have to say in the very first line.

Smoke on Warwick Blvd offers something for everyone! From the Pulled Pork BBQ sandwiches crowd or the meaty platter big eaters. I'm a big fan of the Chicken! There are veggie options and great salads. We've celebrated more than one Birthday here. Please check with them before bringing your own cake. They were in the process of setting up some... More

Came here often while my son attended CNU. His request this past Saturday, for his graduation, was to eat one last time at Smoke. We've seen it expand over the past 4 years and recommend it to anyone heading to Newport News. If you go, you MUST get their appetizer of pork rinds. These are fresh and made to order....nothing...

Had the Turkey sandwich ( cold) ,I had mine on a roll vice the bread that was stated in the menu, this sandwich was huge, delicious! The portions in general just from me looking at the other plates are far beyond average, prices are very reasonable for the portions served! French fries were skin on, and not oily at all,... More

Whenever we go on vacation we look for venues that host Team Trivia, as this place does on Tuesdays. Their food, service and atmosphere were superb. We enjoyed the BBQ ribs and brisket. Their side dishes were wonderful, including baked beans, mac & cheese and fries. Our server was very attentive and took great care of us all night.

Great casual BBQ place. We had a good idea that things were authentic as we drove around the back of the place and saw the pile of firewood ready and waiting! Service was good. We shared a combo platter with baby back ribs and pulled pork; both were first rate. Sides... green beans were great; potato salad OK. Good selection... More

Upon recommendation I hosted out of town family to the Smoke restaurant. We found the cleanliness superior to most restaurants in the area. Our arrival was shortly after 1300, and the restaurant was most probably between meal-rush periods. Still, the service was friendly and surprisingly concerned about our meal satisfaction. One of my criteria grading servants is the observation made... More

My husband and I went to Smoke on a spur of the moment decision. Although we've been many times before, today was different as the place was quite busy. We ordered sliced brisket and baby back ribs. The brisket was as mouth watering, tender and tasty as ever. If you are a sauce on your brisket person, this is not... More

The food here is not worth the visit. The BBQ ribs were terrible and the sides were NOT fresh. Wasted my money here.
