We came here again with my parents. They love it here. Nice roast meal, and other food came out piping hot. Good cause for money. Would just benefit by looking a bit tidier on the inside!

Every time we have gone to Smokey Joes we have never had an issue until today. We ordered 2 sirloin Steaks and a mixed grill between the 3 of us. After waiting for about 10 minutes a girl in a hoodie came out of the kitchen and informed us there was only 1 steak available. Her attitude was horrible, not... More

Been there a long time Food cheap and piled high, you never leave hungry Typical truck stop food Home made and tasty The front of house could do with a good tidy up and clean. Staff friendly enough but always busy Avoid Sunday mornings as it gets packed ! Especially holiday season.

We loved our visit to Smokey Joes, this is a proper roadside truckers greasy spoon café but open to and warmly welcomes anybody. There seems to be a fair percentage of locals in there every time we go in so speaks volume for the place. The food is tasty and well cooked and not too expensive. Worth popping in if... More
