Really fun and relaxed vibe. Excellent options in BBQ sauces. I would definitely visit again. The other rave reviews seem a bit generous. Surely the bes BBQ in Galax, but that's a small pond. I would go there again.

We ate here a few times while staying in Galax. Food was good as well as service. We would definitely return if ever in the area again and would recommend others try it. We were not disappointed.

I grew up in Galax and wish the Smokehouse was around back in those days. Only get by during the Fiddler's Convention but make it a point to stop by every year. Super friendly staff and the sauces are excellent, have to stock up on...More

After reading such raving reviews on TripAdvisor we decided Galax Smokehouse was a must do. Our waitress was excellent and friendly. We both ordered the pork tips. They had a good flavor, but were tough. The fried potatoes were like home cooked potato chips, but...More
