An old time BBQ place has moved up in the world with a new building. Many folks have driven by the old place and was in such a hurry to get on up the road they probably never knew it was there. Worth a stop,...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.

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!
