I've been to the Brandon location many times and the food and service is always great! I think the portions are generous and the staff always comes around to check on me. \r
The only bad thing is the traffic ingress / egress, with the

My son picked Smokey Bones for his birthday dinner because he wanted ribs. First, we requested ribs with no sauce and they came with sauce. We sent them back and then the server brought out a new rack of ribs....so she said. We are certain the cook wiped off the sauce and through the origianl rack on the grill to cook/dry out the remaining sauce. Unfortunately, the ribs still had sauce on parts and we mentioned it to the server. Seh said all the ribs are cooked wih sauce (we thought they were smoked) so they don;t dry out. Here the kicker...the ribs were extremly tough and dry. So much for the sauce preventing them from drying out. Tonight was a upsetting birthday meal fro my son. We will never go back..

I thought the food was excellent during the day time, but at night they seem to be missing a good cook. They really need some better management, they are rude and not very attentive to guests. I would recommend eating here, but only during lunch time later in the week, seems the best time for me. The service sucked, but I enjoyed the Salmon and the Smokehouse Chicken, that's the only reason I go back.

I don't think they have ever cleaned the grill, my food had black "Grilll Marks" that were from burnt grease.
I'll never go back to that location! Most places provide bread foor free, they charge $7 for 4 bread sticks.

Pros: The iced tea is ok.

Cons: grilled chicken breast was gross, traffic is terrible

Although customers complained about the loud music in the Brandon location, the manager refused to lower the music to an acceptable level (where customers can hear themselves talk). When asked about this, the manager indicated that this was the type of environment that they are trying to create. Well, if you are trying to create an environment where customers literally walk out of the restaurant because the music is too loud and the management has no consideration, then the store will get exactly what it deserves; an empty store!!! I really wanted to rate this store at "0" but could not submit without at least one star.

Pros: None

Cons: Management at Brandon do not consider customers

I was at one time a big fan of Smokey Bones. Over the years though the food quality and service has gone down considerably. Recently several friends and I had the pork and it was so salty it was not eatable. We asked for the beef instead and it was dry and not much better. When we advised the waiter that the food was not good he asked what he was supposed to do about it. We then asked for the manager who was equally rude about the situation. It is Smokey Bones loss as I nor any of my friends will go back to this restaurant.

The food was O.K. average for a run of the mill b.b.q. Typical service, Collage student that is slow and distracted by coworkers and boy friend sitting at another table with friends. Food was just average and lacked real flavor. If you do not know real Ribs its good but if your from the south and enjoy B.B.Q stick with the home grown.

The decor of this restaurant is great and they have speakers at each table so you can hear whichever tv you want. This is great because you don't have to listen to everything, you can still hear the scores of the games you want, and it makes the place quieter than places where all the tvs are trying to outdo each other. The food is great, nice selection and not too expensive. Plus if you watch, you can find coupons in the paper every so often. They also have a bag of donuts which is one of their specials. The restaurant is clean, the servers were very nice and the food was served quickly.
