The Smoke Joint

Been going to Smoke Joint since they opened. Best ribs and pulled pork in the area and excellent BBQ sauce. Love the sides - fries and Mac n cheese never disappoint and just discovered the collard greens which I have been craving ever since. I have never had problems with the service. They are always super nice there, and lunch on a warm spring or summer day with the doors open is great.

I am a big fan of BBQ, I'm not a complicated eater and I love delicious food. The first time I went here was for my bday in August. My friends and I were in love. All my friend can do is talk about their shrimp. Now we are regulars and known by the workers. I dont understand the posts that have experienced bad service because we raved about how fast the food is served and how nice the workers are. A busy restaurant is going to make mistakes. Mistakes can be fixed. Many people are just too uptight. I love the place and so do the many people that keep the place packed.

I was in the Ft.Greene neighborhood and decided to have some BBQ. I was in the mood for pulled chicken so I ordered the pulled chicken sandwich and a side of potato salad. The chicken was really more chopped pieces than pulled but it didnt matter to me. The chicken was moist and in a really yummy mustard based sauce. On the side was a little cole slaw and homemade bread and butter pickles. That sauce really made the difference. The potato salad was really delicious as well. Definitely will be back again.

BBQ is what I live for. Biggest complaint: All meat dishes (baby-back, chicken and links) were dry. In addition, the sides attempt to be too daring, and ends up tasting experimental. Server was friendly, but not the most efficient. I love the rustic decor, but I hate when this doesn't translate into comfort. If I want shabby-chic, I'd go to grandma's. The coleslaw was yummy, but the pot. salad, mac & cheese and baked beans were just blah. I would go back with friends, knowing they'd probably not be as critical as me. Sitting there, all I could think about was making the trip to Manhattan for some "Cowgirl" BBQ. BTW, you made need an extra glass of ice to down the limeade.

I love BBQ, and b/c this is the only place to get it near me, I gave The Smoke Joint many many chances before officially giving up. Their food is not bad, if you get what you ordered. And if you get that, good luck having a hot meal. They advertise "Delivery" but they don't really deliver. If you get take out, you may as well order at 10 am if you want dinner that night. In addition, sit in service is poor. They serve about as slowly as they roast pork. When they make mistakes, which they will, you better believe they are the last to apologize (if they acknowledge it at all.) Unfortunately, Smoke Joint is a waste of time and money.
