casual....great ribs.....mediocre service from teenage dudes who are "totally" focused on the music being piped in that they do not really dig...rather than bbq customers....?

We were so busy we were not able to get to Smokey J's until the last day of our Groupon, which happened to be July 4. And sure enough they were sold out of ribs, which is why we bought the Groupon. While trying to decide if we wanted the chicken, which looked good, the owner noticed this was the last day for our Groupon. He informed us that he would extend the Groupon date for we could come back and get the ribs. We said okay, and he wrote on Groupon extension. We came back the next day and had the ribs. Well worth the extension. Owner was gracious to extend our Groupon and we thank him for that. So give Smokey J's a try!

The chicken was amazing. Looking forward to trying some of their daily specials like Taco Tuesdays and the smoked mac and cheese.

Ribs are to die for, the hot links are the absolute best & they are so friendly & kind I've seen them give less fortunate/needy extra or free food on multiple occasions. They have a raffle going on to help buy new equipment, $5 a ticket or for $20. 1st place winner will receive $25 free bbq EVERYDAY for a year!

From Our Editors

The cooks at Smokey J's prep handmade, slow-smoked barbecue dishes, making their own sauces and sausages in-house. They rub meats with brown sugar and a secret house spice rub. Pulled pork and brisket are slow-smoked for 12 hours in a medley of maple, mesquite, and whiskey barrel wood chips, and collard greens and baked beans simmer in a chicken and pork broth. Zesty spices and sauces augment many of the meats, such as the piquant North Carolina sauce and the house dry rub.
