Went for a few drinks and dessert with family. Had great experience - family friendly place, large dessert selection (and menu in general). Nice atmosphere, suitable for couples, solo...just a great place to grab a good western meal.

I went to the location in Kenting and thought the food was pretty good (although the hours are ridiculous...they closed at 8 or 9pm!)...Really good salads and meat dishes. Will def come back when craving western food!

It is not Texan, it is not Mexican, and some of its best dishes are Chinese (Kung Bao chicken is one of the best in town)but what it is is safe. It is a great place for a family, and has a fun atmosphere. My children love it and make us go when ever we can not think of a... More

My boyfriend and I were just there as a "date night" during our holiday to KS. The menu is quite extensive (52 pages) so there are options for even the pickiest eaters! The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Between two of us we shared nachos, buffalo wings, and chicken fajitas. The fajitas for two people didn't come... More

Mexican food is excellent, menu is very large, both Asian and Mexican meals, fairly priced great atmosphere...Service is great and the hours of operation are good as well. Where most places open at 6:00pm Smokey Joes is open early for those who want to eat earlier rather than later...Go visit!!!

I have been twice in Smokey Joe's with my family (wife and 2 small kids) and friends. Both times we had an excellent time! The food is good (with nice South American options), and also the service and the atmosphere (looks like a Mexican place). And, important, we had enough space to get into the restaurant with our baby's stroller!

Enjoyed our meal - service still a bit slow but better atmosphere and nicer food. We stuck to the mainstream menu and we weren't in any hurry.

If you like it hot and spicy, go for the Mexican sausage and rice. Watch out for the sizzlers as the portions are very large. Just right for Two. Great place to go, by yourself or with friends
