It is my favorite BBQ place.. Their service is first rate, they've always bent over backward for their customers. The food is excellent.. You gotta love the 2 meat plate.

Thank you for the eggcellent comment. The chef salad at pok-e-jo's has an interesting history and origin for a BBQ place. Whether is it full on 4 meat plate or the sauteed veggies (for the non carnivores out there) we take pride in what we...More

Was directed here by a staff member at my hotel. Although there was a variety of options, nothing was very hot or memorable. I doubt that I will be back.More

Keep trying BBQ places in the area to see if there are differences.. YES there are. Some of the ads for this place are only 5 seconds, once you've been you can see why. Not terribly friendly and certainly not high quality brisket... Not worth...More

Came here for a little back to school BBQ with the goats. Was disappointed. Save yourself the trip and go to Salt Lick or Smokey-Mo's. This is a cafeteria style setup where you line up to order your meal...meat then sides then drinks. They do...More
