If you are looking for a no-frills, fuss-free dining experience with only good food on the menu, Smokey’s BBQ is here for you. Marinated by a secret dry rub that is tangy but not overwhelmingly so, the fresh rib meat soak up the special homemade BBQ sauce like a sponge.

My other third home!

Other than The Garden Slug at Telok Kurau, Smokey's is another place that my wife and I simply can't get enough of! 

We love everything about it. The fact that it's situated in a quaint little corner. The fact that it's in Joo Chiat. The salt-of-the-earth waitstaff. The almost authentic American diner feel.. (sports constantly playing on TV? Check. Greasy plastic tablecloth? Check. Kitschy wall ornamnets? Check.)

They do their grilled meats very well, and we always go for the steak and the burgers. The wife always orders the buffalo wings as a starter and while I didn't quite like them at first, I think they're starting to grow on me. I personally feel they could extend the beer selection (even bottled will do, not fussed!) so I always end up having the Archipelago Summer Ale.

We love that the staff are older folk and seem to know what they're doing.

I haven't had a chance to meet the owner but I've a feeling the place has been around for awhile. Very grateful that a place like this exists in the East and we hope they live long and prosper!

Went to the Joo Chiat branch of this place, as it's one of our friends favourite places.  After visiting for the first time I can see why.  Very good quality baby back ribs, succulent, with meat that melts in the mouth, with a delicious, and not too sweet, BBQ sauce.  

The restaurant has a good vibe to it, with plenty of outdoor seating.  Good choice for a group of friends or for a local night out.  Service could have been a bit speedier, but they were very busy on a Saturday

I'd like a wider selection of draft beers, the Archipeligo ones are OK, but they can taste a bit 'home brew' at times.

Booking in advance through HGW recommended - it gets busy at peak times

Celebrated my birthday there. Surprised to find a lively place that is somewhat in the middle of nowhere. I love al fresco dining so it was a great find for me and the bf.

Great service staff. Especially love the steak! Can't wait to visit again :)
