    see above

    I have loved this restaurant for a very long time and I have never gotten a meal I didnt like. I love the baby back ribs but with the KC sauce...the house bbq sauce is good but not as good as the KC. The Mac and Cheese is in my opinion the best in the city. No matter what I order, I always get the jalepeno hush puppies...they are too good for words. Cant wait for the next time.

    Lucky 13th

    Just had to put my 2 cents worth in after reading a few bad reviews. Had dinner here on Friday the 13th. The service was warm and friendly, and if we waited a bit for our meal, hey, the place was packed (what would you expect on a Friday night?) and more to the point, when the main dishes arrived, it was worth the wait and then some. I've had real southern slow-cooked bbq, and this is as good as any I can recall-- so tender you don't even feel like you need to reach for the dental floss when you're done! We ordered the "Rhapsody in 'cue" sampler, plus a half-order of the Memphis-style baby back ribs. The sides (cole slaw, sweet-potato fries, and cauliflower) were all likewise wonderful, and the desserts delish too. I look forward to a return visit.

    Love the Ribs

    After reading so many disappointing reviews of Blue Smoke I just had to review. I have been to BS about 4-5 times now, all for dinner, and every time is better than the last. I absolutely love the Rib Sampler and mac and cheese. All of the ribs are prepared differently and each has it's own unique flavor, definitely worth getting the sampler. The wait staff isn't impressive but have never had to wait long for the food. Best dessert ever: Sticky Toffee Pudding!

    Not recommended

    Stay away. It's just not worth the money or time. We went for lunch before 3pm on a Saturday and could only get the Dinner Menu. It took 50 minutes to get our food despite the restaurant being half empty. The staff were slow, unattentive and had poor knowledge of the food. I counted 5 other tables that waited as long as us for their food. The food itself was just as dissapointing. My ribs were dry and had hardly any meat on them, the burgers were barely warm, the vegatabes cold and wilting. The mashed potatos runny with water. Even our drinks (2 beers and 2 bloody Mary's) took 25 minutes to arrive. Stay away, New York has so much more to offer.

    Takes for Ever

    Blue Smoke has good food that is to expensive and the service is horribly slow. There is no such thing as a quick lunch here. The food takes a good 30 minutes to arrive at your table and that was when the place was empty so who knows how long it will take if they are busy.

    Decent Place

    The wait is fairly long on a friday night. The ribs were tasty and the pulled pork was good. The mac and cheese is very dense (not watery) but is better than average. Certainly not the best mac and cheese. For the money and the food I would not recommend Blue Smoke.

    So good I almost cried

    I am rarely impressed to the level that I was last night at Blue Smoke. We decided to avoid the short wait and sit at the bar, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our bartender/server was very attentive and noticed when my order was missing something I had asked for even without me haveing to mention it, which he immediately retrieved for me. My food-the pulled pork platter was amazing. cauliflower-amazing. beans-ok. my friends burger-amazing. mashed potatos-great! we were so happy with ourselves for deciding to eat there finally and would have been satisfied enough but decided to order dessert. the sticky toffee pudding was absolutely incredible...we almost cried. All around it was the BEST choice for a fun winters night and we will definitely be back soon!
