Wine out of a plastic beer cup, no Budlight Draft so poured from Bud bottle into a plastic cup so it looked like Draft. Unattentive bartenders-spent more time on the patron side chatting. Nachos weren't that great. Just a disappointing night all around, won't return!

Enjoyed it for sure. Got ribs, Apple coleslaw, mashed potatoes and the Mac n' cheese appetizer with pulled port & chicken. We got it all as takeout and enjoyed it very much.

The mac & cheese is delicious. $3.99 for a giant side that tasted like my childhood. Mmm. The catfish and grits were also tasty.

Even though we arrived only minutes before they stopped serving dinner, their staff graciously admitted us, took our order, and promptly brought out a pile of tasty vittles! The portions are generous, and the food was worthy. We ended up ordering too much food, but it was almost just as tasty warmed up the following night.

We were in the area visiting our new grandson and wanted to eat before traveling home. We found the Smokestack BBQ, heard about their BBQ and decided to try it. We were seated right away around 5:30, had a Jack Abbey and a special Margarita. My wife decided on the Combo Platter (chose chicken, pulled pork and ribs) with a... More

My friends, wife, and I went here for dinner to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Our anticipation was peaked as we smelled the smoking meats as we walked down the street to the restaurant. Our dinner did not disappoint; it was fabulous. We sat in the bar which had a great atmosphere (nice music selection, loved the steel tub chandelier and... More

All the shouting was not justified. Nice venue, good service and BBQ without a clue. No smoke flavor, no zip to sauces (ok if you like sugar). Beans were mushy; no crunch to cukes. Came for the fried pickles and they were among the worst ever....bad pickle to begin with, then a batter with zero flavor

For my husband's birthday bash he wanted to go to a restaurant with a robust meat menu. We found it! Found this restaurant highly recommended on TripAdvisor. The appetizers were sensational -just the right mix of flavors. The staff suggested the Fried Pickled and wings. They were over the top. The menu has something for everyone and an extensive drink...

I love this place and go regularly. My kids love the bacon BBQ burgers and my wife loves the brisket sandwich with the green apple slaw.

We were a party of five who, due to having theatre tickets, were pleased that the Urban Smokestack accepted reservations. I had wanted to try it out for some time. First, it's in a trendy (but busy) neighborhood where there are a lot of things to check out. I enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant - hip, trendy, with a... More
