Smokin Joes

Reviewed By Smokymist

Ate here today with a group of people. We spent almost $50 for three people to eat, and we all ordered the same thing. We ordered sliced chicken and it was small medallions of what tasted like processed thick lunch meat. It had no flavor at all. We each received 5 or 6 of these and they were really small. We also got the green beans as a side, small cup, maybe 1/4 a cup and most of that cup was full of water, again no flavor. The other side we got, one of us got the obviously pre packaged sweet potato waffle fries which were just ok, and two of us got the coleslaw, again maybe 1/4 a cup and very average taste. Two hush puppies came with the meal , and they left those off my daughter's plate . We ordered two teas and not once did the waitress come to refill them. Very very small amount of food, it was like eating at a hospital cafeteria, yet we spent almost $50 and left the waitress a tip. 11.99 each meal, for less food than a cheap TV dinner. Very poorly run restaurant that needs to treat their customers like they want them back.

The temperature outside was 93° and there was no air conditioning in the facility. BBQ is really hard to mess up till today. Except for the potato skins, the food was very poor quality, without flavor or seasonings. The meat fatty. Baked potatoes inside were hard and not the color of any potato I have ever had. Coleslaw was warm, the macaroni and cheese was gritty. The water was horrible. Miranda (our waitress)was not trained, and did not care that the food was bad. The staff was outside smoking most of the time that we were there.I did tell the staff to please refrigerate the coleslaw, and to bake the potatoes the same day that you serve them. And maybe try tasting their food.

We visited on a Thursday night and it was quite a wait.. about 40 minutes so we had high hopes.. we got a variety of dishes.. our favorite was the boudin balls.. we had never tried those before. It was a lot of food for the money, but it was not my favorite dinner. If I was to go again.. I would try the catfish as everyone seems to love it. The bread pudding also looked very good but we weren’t wanting any dessert.
