Cozy spot serving slow-smoked barbecue meats & Southern-style sides in rustic environs.- Google

The food was cold. Normally my friend and I would have said something. I couldn't tell you why we didn't. The beans were good. The pulled pork was dry and so was the brisket. I'm sad to say that Dickeys (a chain) is better. I wish the cornbread was warm, it had a good flavor. I love AJ Bombers but this sister restaurant does not live up to my standards.

Fun small spot. Though sometimes they run out of food at night. Every experience I've had here was good

Amazing food. Can be a bit pricey but worth it. No reservations so think about the day you want to go and when to show up. During the summer the outdoor space lends itself to more guests without a wait. Otherwise try the bar seating. Parking as usually is horrible so plan for a few block walk or paying for a parking garage.

So good! The decor, the smell, the friendly service was all really good. This is a special treat to have in Milwaukee. I had a brisket sandwich and it was tasty. They leave the sauce up to you, so it comes out dry which is a good call. They also give you a ridiculously huge cinnamon roll for free during brunch.

Decided to try the smoke shack for lunch on Halloween, after hearing rave reviews regarding the food there. Both my wife and I ordered the beef brisket sandwiches with mac and cheese. the meat was tasty but luke warm, the bun was gooey, and the bar-be-cue sauce was very average, maybe below average, and the mac and cheese was soup-like and watery with very little flavor. The sandwiches were $13.50 each (The waitress was nice and explained that the sammiches were only 1/3 of a pound) and the mac-w/o-cheese was an extra $2.00. So after a bill (with one soda ordered) arrived at $36.00, I left still very hungry, and my wife wasnt feeling well probably due to the mac w/o cheese. After a $40 lunch for 2, (with tip) and with nothing extra served with the lunch (no pickles, or beans or cole slaw), I obviously decided 100% that I would never be back. IMHO a total rip off and one in which I have had better lunches at Applebees for half the cost. Live and learn, but overall I give this place a zero. (I also used to be a front line cook back in the day and know what a decent lunch should cost, and this place was pathetic at best).

You will have to wait but it's soooo worth it. Sample platter is a winner if it's your first time.

The atmosphere is really nice and homey, and the staff was very friendly. Had the brisket sandwich and the burnt ends (special on Weds it seems). Both were very well prepared and had great flavor. The available sides though didn't do a lot for me. I'm a Kansas City native, so I guess that I have certain expectations. No regular fries kinda bummed me out since I don't like sweet potato at all. The beans just had too many peppers for my tastes, but the kettle chips were great. Also, it's a bit pricey. $13+ for a pretty standard brisket sandwich is high in my experience, and the burnt ends were also costly for the serving size. I'll most likely go back, but I really need to figure out a side on their menu that will satisfy me.
