I've eaten at Blue Smoke twice and I have to say that finally, someone in NYC got it right. Dallas Jones, Dallas BBQ...whatever, wherever else in New York, it just wasn't real barbeque. I've been to Dallas, I go to Nashville frequently and I have to tell you that the pork ribs (baby backs, I think) equalled what I've had in Nashville. That surprised me...and then I tasted the beef ribs. I have to tell you, I've never had anything so good in my life. The best ribs I've ever tasted, and that's going some, considering that my first stop on every business trip to Nashville has always been Jack's Barbeque. The drinks at Blue Smoke, the salad, sides...well worth the wait...AND the waiting time spent at the bar.

I have gone to this restaurant twice--always at someone else's urging. It has been awful both times. The food and the service are competing for which can be worse. The first time I went, the waiter spilled a drink all over me, and that didn't shake him out of his trance. The food is second rate bbq, if that. They will never see me again,

Everytime I dine at Blue Smoke the waiters usually take forever

Blue Smoke is great. Not only was our food amazing, but the service was exceptional. The waiter we had was extremely attentive and friendly. The ribs were so delicious (although they could use a bit more barbecue sauce) and tender and the smoked chicken basically fell off the bone. The biscuits were just the right mix of salty and sweet and the sweet potato fries, while a bit thick, were delicious as well. The price is totally reasonable for the amount of food we ate, and I've never been so full in my life! I highly recommend the blood orange margarita......to compliment the meal.

To start, the food is quite good, however with all the hype, it's hard to live up to those standards. The atmosphere is casually cool and the waitstaff efficient. I enjoyed Blue Smoke each time I've been there and so has the company I've brought. I will visit again!!

One of the nice things about visiting a bbq joint is leaving with a full stomach. This is not the case at BS.. The rib sampler I ordered came out looking like some minimalist creation. The mac and cheese there was talked up quite a bit and did not come through either. It was a little bland, almost like it was made with American cheese. The dessert was pretty good.. a thick slab of chocolate cake, but all in all nothing special.

I have heard the hype, but my first visit to blue smoke was nothing more than average at best. Average food, although I was pleased to taste the deviled egg appetizer.
