Stopped in for a couple of appetizers and a drink (Rye). Misled by the reviews. It has the appearance more of a steakhouse than a BBQ place (nice booths, table cloths, etc). Food came out really quick (too quick?). Burnt ends were on the dry...More

We tried smokehouse for lunch. Jim had a pulled pork sandwich which was a large helping on a long sandwich roll. I had a rib and burnt end platter. This was the first time to this area and the burnt ends here were not as...More

This seemed to be the typical BBQ place. Nothing really stood out as special other than the cole slaw was really good. Besides the food being average, the service was average as well. Food was good, but like I said nothing spectacular.

I ate the burn ends (beef) and sliced meat combo for lunch. The servings were ample, and the meat soft and well-cooked. But the BBQ sauce--which was added to the meat, not served on the side--was too pungent and overwhelmed the taste of the meat....More

We were searching for some really great BBQ and found it at the Smokehouse! The babybacks had great smoke flavoring and were meaty and juicy. The sauce was very much to our liking also. I loved the baked beans and cheesy corn also. Service was...More
