“Awesome tacos!!”

SMOKE barbeque taqueria
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 February 2017 via mobile

Met a friend here for dinner! It was awesome. Had about a 45 min wait. They text you so you have options. We sat at the bar and it was nice. Pretty good brews on tap.

We ordered pork and the chicken and apple tacos. Also got a side of corn and broccoli. The veggie was amazing. Must have been a ton of butter! So good. Wasn't what I expected at all. It was like a cream sauce and a light bread crumb crust then baked and it was so hot!!

The tacos were both unique and very tasty and the soft shells didn't fall apart. Nicely loaded.

Unique atmosphere and a fun, cool vibe. It was nicely busy for a Friday night and the text your cell approach avoids big lines.

Check it out.

My experience at Smoke was great. The wait was long as they do not take reservations but, the food was well worth it. I got the Braised beef sandwich with cheese corn bread. The only complaint is the tables are very small and you don't have much room. Otherwise everything was great.

A warm inviting place , specially on a cold day, the Smokehouse offers a variety of BBQ items! Whether its a dip or a crunchy bite, you can be assured of good food! Lisa, the friendly wait staff, was very helpful indeed!

Recommended eatery for tacos. Friendly, efficient staff, comfortable table & bar seating although very chilly as it needs a separate foyer in colder weather! Varied menu of sandwiches, tacos, entrees, sides & appetizers. Imo overpriced for amt & quality offered. My macaroni salad tasted like Giant Eagle's...taco was tasty & fit in my palm...could've had 2. $45 for a few beers, 3tacos, 2 sides seemed pricey to me.

....but once you find it, you won't be disappointed. To help you out, it's right next door to the movie theatre. As soon as you walk in the door, you are greeted by the aroma of the smokers and cool music. It's a rather small venue that had a very nice lunch crowd when I visited. I imagine it could get crowed for dinner.

We had the Burnt Ends and a Brisket sandwich that were extremely delish. Try the mac and cheese side dish. The portions were very nice for the price. Actually an appetizer and a shared sandwich are probably perfect for a couple having lunch.

As a plus, even though this is essentially a "meat" place, they have some surprisingly decent veggie offerings.

My only knock is I thought the wine was a big pricy. Seriously, a $13 glass of Drumheller is a bit over priced for a BBQ place in Lawrenceville.

Oh, and by the way....it can get probably get pretty loud there during busy times. It was loud at lunch.
