There was three of us. We all had the Beef Short Ribs. Everyone thought they we're very good. I will definitely be back.

my ribs were perfect but... the pulled pork was too dry... the coleslaw and the beans had way too much sugar... the beer was bottled and only average

This is an affordable BBQ place good for take out or dining in. Very reasonably priced if average taste for ribs and mac cheese which is what I had. Excellent rye and bourbon choices. Not fancy at all and so so service but a good value even if it can't begin to compare to Texas, or even California BBQ. A... More

Our sandwiches were great and the sides especially good. Service was not prompt but the food was good enough to return again and again!

We were heading to an evening program at BAM. Looking for somewhere nearby to eat, we found The Smoke Joint. It's smaller than some of the bigger warehouse BBQ places, but the pulled pork and beef brisket was top notch! At other BBQ joints, I often get an Arnold Palmer (lemonade + iced tea), but here they have a Tiger... More

THIEFS!!!!! Despite reading a review that someone had eaten here and had their credit card info stolen, I still decided to try it. We enjoyed our meal and the service was ok (not rude like some google reviewers have noted) A month later I have fraudulent charges on the credit card I used to pay my bill here. All the... More

I'm one of those who went there after watching food network. Plus I was visiting NY at that time so totally new with the whole area too. Therefore I had some expectations that haven't been fulfilled. Proper place, though. Stylish BBQ joint with delicious food and bar! I expected slightly bigger portions but overall we were satisfied. The meat really... More
