My husband and I have eaten at the Edwardsville location many times and it just seems to get better and better. If you haven't tried the pork steak you're missing it. We eat bbq all over the country and you can't beat them. It's the best kept secret in the area, but it won't be for long. I hope they don't continue to expand, because I love talking to the owners, they seem to have a real passion about the business. One thing I would suggest is to offer the barbecue sauce served warm.

We have eaten at the Edwardsville location several times and the food was okay. The last time we went the food was bad and the service was poor (we waited 35 minutes for food when others who arrived after us had theirs in 5!) We decided not to go back. Well, today we decided to give them another try. BAD CHOICE! We were seated and waited on promptly and received our drinks. We placed our order and were one of 3 tables in the restaurant. In the meantime about 10 more tables filled up. EVERY one received their food before us. My husband ordered a steak and I ordered pulled pork with garlic roasted potatoes. We waited almost 40 minutes for our food. One table that came in after us ordered, ate and left before ours arrived. My food was ICE COLD. All of it. It sat there waiting on my husbands to get done. I complained and they took it back. They apparantly just popped it in a microwave because it was steaming on the outside but the potatoes were STILL totally cold inside. The owner came to the table and apologized and I was brought a 3rd plate. It again was steaming but when I cut open the potatoes they were STILL cold! This is entirely unacceptable. Worse yet, because I complained totally quietly so no other diner even knew the entire staff was peeking out of the kitchen looking directly at me and saying things and making faces which I though was extremely rude! (the blond with the pony tail was the worst) I can read lips - little did they know. I did not complain a 4th time, but rather finished my pork and the green beans (didn't bother with the garlic bread as it was hard as a rock) and left. The total insult was the waiter didn't even apologize or offer a discount off the bill. I didn't ask because that is NOT was I was after. I just wanted my food properly cooked and served timely. I will NEVER go there again. We have had our office christmas party there 2 years in a row but it won't happen this year because I am in charge of choosing the restaurant this year. This restaurant was packed daily when it opened but now there is no problem getting in - which is a good indication others have had bad experiences as well.

I don't normally take the time to write a review but I was very impressed with Bully's Smokehouse. I, too, had been hearing Frank Opinion brag about their porksteak so I had to go check it out for myself. It was absolutley wonderful. That porksteak was so tender that I could cut it with just my fork. My husband had the chicken and ribs. He's been bragging about those ribs to all he talks to. The portions were very large and I could only eat half of my porksteak. My husband and I both had the baked beans and enjoyed them as well. The waiter could not have been more professional or attentive to our needs. We live in Missouri and are hoping that Bully's Smokehouse will expand to this side of the river. The atmosphere was nice and the overall experience was very good!

I love trying new restaurants and Frank Opinion has been bragging about Bully's Smokehouse so I had to see for myself. Oh my, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. The waitress was so attentive to my family's needs. I drug my husband and three kids out for lunch today (against their will) but we all left happy campers. The portions were so large, I have enough food leftover to feed the kids lunch again tomorrow. It is not always easy to eat out with three youngsters but the staff helped to keep the kids happy. That is always a plus in my book. Again, the food was delicious and my family and I will be going back!

Bully's food is great! Best ribs around.........the meat falls off the bones. The pork steak is to die for, no need for a knife. I love the sides...............great cole salad, potato salad,. broccoli and baked beans. Oh, I can't forget to mention the catfish, it is wonderful. Anyway, I can't say enough good stuff about Bully's food and the service is wonderful!!!

Anyone that loves BBQ should not miss this place. Not only is the meat perfect but the sides are also. Every employee greets with a smile. Their restaurant has moved to Edwardsville Illinois and the food hasn't changed a bit.

PROS: Best food around!!!
CONS: To much food for the money!!!
