The service was good, food was excellent and portions were perfect. The drinks however were a different story. I ordered a fruity drink that cost $7.50 and it came in a tall wine glass but was less than half full. My friend ordered a Sangria...More

I couldn't resist the pork and chicken nachos (I know, I know... dinner of champions). The meat was like shaved and chunked... so good! I tried their berry sangria?... too sweet for me. Burgers were thick and pink in the middle. The guys were happy.

This was the best place for eating out while we stayed in Springfield. The service was very good as was the food. We chose the soft tacos with brisket and pulled pork. I am a beef lover, but the pulled pork tacos were superb.

The restaurant is attractive and inviting with very friendly staff. The service was good but for the price the food was disappointing. I was hoping for food a bit more elevated from typical chain restaurant fare.

Walked across the street from our Comfort Suites room on staff recommendation for dinner at Smokey Bones BBQ and were not disappointed. The brisket was so tender it could be cut with a fork. Baby back rib combo and loaded potato soup were very good...More
