It's a place worth a visit. Generous and delicious, you will be satisfied and wish you could try more. Nice seating with good lights. Service is casual but good.

White tablecloths in a BBQ restaurant?! Located in Greektown, convenient to casinos and locals as well. Delicious ribs and brisket. Sides pair nicely. Cold beer. You gotta try this place.

Red Smoke is casual and friendly, an unpretentious place where the food really does all the bragging. Not only were the ribs and pulled pork succulent, but our servers couldn't have been more kind and attentive. A fine first meal for the family.

I came with a friend on a weeknight. The place wasn't super packed but the service was really slow. We sat at the bar and still couldn't get good service for refilling our drinks. The food was ok.

Brisket was very good and love all the BBQ sauces. Best of all was the sweet potato fries. Some of the best I have ever had.

We went to Red Smoke because I like to try BBQ wherever I go. The Mac and cheese was good but a bit runny. The brisket was excellent. It had a nice atmosphere and good selection of beverages.
