Not familiar with area but in the mood for ribs. First went to Sonny's but talked out of eating there from comments made from the folks in line waiting to be seated or even acknowledged. Not a good sign so we left and came upon Smokey Bones. The place looked great from the outside with lots of cars in the... More

My wife and I visited Smokey bones in Lakeland this evening . I had a coupon for a discount from the local paper. It stated that you needed to spend $25.00 dollars to get the $10.00 OFF. WHAT WE ORDERED COST $23.99. I was going to order another side dish for $2.99 ,but since I asked the waitress if that... More

We met family members here for lunch while on vacation. The server was great and fun. The food was great and the place was clean. We didn't have a long wait and we enjoyed our meal there.

I've been to a few different Smokey Bones and it is pretty good BBQ especially for a chain. The food has always been good and consistent. They don't put sauce on their BBQ which is the best thing since it let's me add what I want if anything. The service was good and food came out pretty quickly. I had... More

Went here with a group of 14 people. Food was very good, especially the hot donuts in a bag with sugar and cinnamon.

We arrived at Smokey Bones and we were the only one there except for a man picking up a takeout order. Obviously there was an issue. We could not believe that we stood there for at least 5 minutes without one person greeting us. We were very close to leaving. My husband finally got the attention of the lady working... More

Lots of entrée choices and appetizers at 25% off or so. Ultimate nachos for eight dollars was a great choice. Different types of mac & cheese were enjoyed by... More
