What a disappointment, we stayed in Kenting over the Christmas period to get away from normal life in Taiwan and saw this place highly rated. It was busy and the menu looked ok so thought we would give it ago. We ordered ribs, fajitas and...a salad thinking it would be great. The meat was dry, chewy and overcooked. Salad was not fresh and generally the food lacked any taste. Seeing the reviews it looked like American style with a bit of Taiwanese but honestly it was neither. I was shocked by the price and get it was very bad value for money. Not sure why it is famous. Plenty of other places to choose from.More

American restaurant where you can eat all kind of different western dishes. Food presentation and quality are good and the prices very reasonable. Staff was super friendly.

The place was packed on a Saturday night. Food was of good quality and they had a wide variety of food with pasta, pizza, burgers even Taiwanese food. It was a bit pricey by Taiwanese standards but well worth the price. Portions were huge and...food was authentic. Service was great - the waitress gently highlighted to us to remove some of our orders as she felt we ordered too much food! Highly recommended. We were so glad we made our way behind Kenting Main Street to Dawan Road to get to Smokey Joe. Couldn't find any decent Western cuisine on Kenting Main Street.More

My family of four went out for our Christmas Eve dinner here in Smokey Joe’s. The place was packed and yet the service was excellent and we did not have to wait that long. I admire the courtesy of the waiters. The atmosphere was festive....At one point, one of our orders was messed up. The waiter quickly corrected it. The cook even came out to apologize. What great service. I would definitely come back.More

Good burrito (huge) and loads of food in the kids meals as well. Lots of drink options too. Corona margarita recommended!

I ate the wettest burrito ever. I cant believe they even sell it. The only good thing about this restaurant is the friendly staff, also that they have many vegetarian options. But I would spend my money somewhere else. Dont waste your food appetite and...money here.More

The chef must own a chilli farm as the chivken dish was terrible! The beef dish was acceptable. Service was good.

The hamburger and New Orleans chicken wings are pretty ordinary and nothing special. Price is a bit high, and there are quite strange to have Chinese/ American/ Mexican/ Thai cuisine in the same restaurant.
