Went three times had nachos, fries, chicken burrito and ceasar salad. The food was good. Sevice was excelent. One bad thing was they do not have Taiwan beer, they should fix that.

Had lunch at this place and I'd say that is was quite a let down. We orders burritos, Which looked nothing like a burrito, and the salmon wrap - which was way better. You won't be given the sauces stated on the menu depending on which burrito you choose and you'll have to pay extra. The place? Loads of seating... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the food here. The menu is extensive and doesn't seem to have a real identity, however the Tex-Mex options were delicious. The chicken tacos are a great deal at $210nt. The chicken is juicy and flavorful, the taco shells are crispy but not oily. Delicious. If you are in the mood for something different, I... More

Eat at Smokey Joes three times during our visit to Kenting. The nachos and tacos were tasty. The service was friendly and gracious. Will definitely eat here again.

Ordered a burger and small iced tea each and service was great. The burger was tasty but the patty was more like a giant meatball the size of a fist, impossible to eat it all, and while I was happy with the quantity the massive meatball was too much. The small iced tea was huge, the large is enourmous! We... More

This may be quite popular with locals, but as a traveler I found the food cheesy and inauthentic, while the service was uncharacteristically brusque. Besides who wants pappy theme restaurant junk food when there are so many good alternative choices?

Went there for lunch. Good was good and the salad was very impressive. The kids' menu was great and my kids loved it. The only complaint wad the music: it was far too loud and the manager said the volume was preset and could not be tuned down.

I noticed this restaurant was rated very high and we decided to give a try. Waiting for about 40 minutes, we were led to a table, it is about 7:30 p.m. It was crowded and noisy. Although the restaurant is well decorated, i did not feel comfortable and relaxed. We took a bottle of juice for my son, but the... More

We just loved the pork ribs and the pizza. We entitled for 10% discounts since we stayed in the hotel. It's best to reserve instead of walk-in. Once we checked-in, we didn't make any reservation. Once we went down, the line is very long (but they have a very unique waiting room) in the lobby's hotel. You won't get bored.

The service was impressive. We ate burritos and it was delicious. The music is too loud though. We really enjoyed ourselves at Smokey Joes.
