The food is wonderful and flavorful. Set apart from the usual country cooking in Pigeon Forge, this place offers a refreshing different culinary experience. Think outside the box and try something different, you might be pleasantly surprised. We had empanadas, steak, and fried pork chunks. Have a picky eater - they have chicken tenders and hot dog on menu. Love... More

There is very little seating here, but we were getting food to go, so that was okay with us. Staff was friendly overall; I had never had Cuban food before and asked what an empanada was, and was told it couldn't be described and that was it, but luckily another staff came up and described it perfectly. I would have... More

We were in pigeon forge for a family weekend and planned to have dinner at Smokies, as we always do if they're open. Being of cuban heritage and they being the only cuban restaurant in the area, it's a no brainer for us. Pricing is relative to the area, so be prepared. All of our party enjoyed what they ordered,...

We saw the reviews on trip advisor and we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed!! The food was fresh and tasty. We had the Cuban and fries. The portion of fries were huge as was the sandwiches. We highly recommend.
