Ate here this weekend on the suggestion of the motel clerk. Food was good, quantities were adequate and the price was fair. The food had flavor, that's for sure. They close early at 8:00 pm, not sure why, but be forewarned. We took our food to go and it was just fine.

This little spot puts out the best BBQ in the entire state! Yep, I know that's a HUGE claim, but one visit to Smoke Shack will have you agreeing. The Prices are ridiculously low, the food portions are extremely large and the sauce.. OMG, the sweet and spicy sauce, made right in the restaurant is to die for. A half... More

Price was great and portions were of good size, but I just have to say it wasn't the best BBQ. Beans had bell pepper in them that put off the taste and potato Salad was so mustardy that I didn't eat those. The meat on the pulled pork sandwich was good but square was too sweet for my taste. Go... More

On a road trip traveling on I-40 and got off at the Maumell exit because it was lunch time. We spotted Smoke Shack BBQ right off the exit and decided to try it. My husband and I both had the pulled pork sandwich with beans and slaw for sides. Probably the best pulled pork we have ever had. The smoke... More

We have been eating at the Smoke Shack for years. It is some of the best. The service is good and the prices are also. My brother in law from South Carolina has come through Little Rock when traveling on business. He stops at the Smoke Shack before he comes to see us. Highly recommended.

Good food, fair prices, great service. What more could you want in a local bar-b-que restaurant? Nothing fancy but awesome food in country setting. I would recommend their nightly specials - ribs are great and bar-b-que sandwich plates are favorites of my family.

Love the Smoke Shack...usually get the special-jumbo sandwich (your choice of chopped meat) 2 sides & drink for 7.95 great deal. The meats are all delicious. The fries are not frozen but fresh cut.

Thank Gmateri
