Do not let the building appearance fool you. This is some of the best BBQ around. You might have to wait a bit to order/get your food (there is often a line) but it is worth it. It is not a chain, the staff is...More

Very good pulled pork BBQ. I was not impressed with the beans but I'm a bit fussy about my beans. I will be back though. Maybe I'll try the brisket next time.

Smokehouse is a local BBQ place not a chain restaurant. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. The banana pudding is homemade like Grandma's!

The pork sandwiches were just OK. The bbq sauce was pretty good, however the potato salad was not good at all.. The staff was friendly..

Walk up to place your order and then take to sit picnic style in adjacent building. Generous portions at reasonable prices. Authentic smoke smell and taste. Probably not ideal for a date. But perfect to satisfy a craving for good BBQ for lunch.

I've never dined in here because the only option is a shed. However, they are remodeling a nicer building next door. Their menu is very simple. No fries, okra, or macaroni like other places. Mainly BBQ with the basics (slaw, chips, etc). However, that's all...More

Don't let the facade fool you. If you're in the mood for barbecue, go here. Everything is very good. We got pulled pork, chicken, beef, slaw, brunswick stew, potato salad, and baked beans. The whole family was pleased. You can taste and smell the smoke...More

The Smoke House a great place to bring your family, friends or business associates. Friendly relaxed atmosphere. Doing food right for 40 years. The BBQ is smoke with hickory for 12 to 14 hours, everyday. Sides, sauces and desserts are all made in-house, from scratch, daily. We are not fast food, but we do serve great food as fast as we can. So, come and relax and enjoy!
