We had a large group of students (110) that we needed to feed within about a 1/2 hour. Holy smoke BBQ catered our group. They delivered the food exactly when we needed it. The food was VERY Yummy. They brought everything we needed-plates, napkins, forks, serving spoons, sauces,etc. We had enough food and salads so that there were not a... More

Two for work lunch. The smell of smoked meat is throughout the space. It is a small space with a capacity for 37 seating. We each got 3 ribs for $5.00 and then a side for $1.99. Choice was macaroni salad, beans, coleslaw, potatoes salad, and a couple other choices. The food is placed on a piece of paper on... More

A greasy spoon located in the industrial part of town. The smell of wood smoke is apparent once you get out of your car. This is fantastic, tender, slow cooked meat. A little pricy but super good. Lots of custom squares to add if you choose. Be prepared to use a bunch of napkins for this juicy indulgence. If only... More

I ordered delivery through "Skip The Dishes" and when it arrived, the order was wrong. Instead of baked beans I received corn bread and there was no sauce for my sandwich (ordered it unassembled so it wouldn't get soggy). Wrong side and no sauce even though it was listed on my receipt. I checked afterwards whether the restaurant was still... More

We showed up on our way to the hockey game only to see when we walked up that they closed at 6 and it was 5 after. The staff working unlocked the door and invited us in. We ordered for 6 people the food came out fast and hot as always. There was no hurry at all, they just carried... More

I have had lunch many times at Holy Smoke. The food and the people are great. We have also ordered ribs for take home when we are having a crowd over and never been disappointed.

The meat portion of the regular smoked beef sandwich was good. The bun was boring, and could have been exceptional if toasted. There are several bottles of sauce that you can squirt onto your sandwich, or onto your plate for dipping. The sandwich consisted of a bun, plenty of delicious meat, and a slice of pickle. No sides included, but... More

I've been to both Holy Smoke locations. I prefer the one on Manhattan Road. It has a more authentic smokehouse feel. The one on 16 Ave NE is a typical strip mall takeout joint although both places have seating. Yea, this is Alberta style BBQ but the food is very good. I had a regular size beef brisket sandwich with... More

Very gluten friendly, great sized portions (not gargantuan) and good selection of saucy condiments. The brisket sundae was fabulous, but pulled pork a little bland without saucing it up.
