Great LunchSmokin' Betty's never disappoints me. My colleague was impressed by the "cool factor" of the restaurant. Staff was helpful, but not pushy when giving guidance about menu choices. Service was fast, but not rushed.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Really great food! The bbq ribs are some of the best ever had.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThank You Betty!We stopped at Smokin Betty's on the recommendation of my daughter - a Temple student. We were extremely impressed with the service and the quality of the food. Definitely a neighborhood gem that I would not hesitate to eat at again, The quality of meat in their burgers was outstanding and their bread pudding (which I do not normally eat) was amazing. Great service - great food in a laid back atmosphere. Advice - if the menu item is preceded by the word Betty's try it!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFun, casual spot!I went to Smokin Betty's with a big group last night and it was perfect. They were so accommodating, they didn't rush us at all, and the food was yummy! With a big group looking for something fun I would definitely recommend it!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, good valuePassed this restautant many times, but after dining here will definitely return, love the menu. The tacos were delciious, had a nice beet and goat cheese salad which was large enough to share between my husband and I (loved the extra touches of carmalized shallots and pistachios). The grill salmon was excellent with the best sweet potato fries in the city, skin on and not greasy.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPost broad street run: perfect!!We had a group of 10 and were nicely accommodated by smokin Betty's. Brunch menu is delicious and prices are great! Good for groups and great comfort food. Every member of our party was satisfied with their order. Service can be a tad slow, but if you're at brunch with friends it doesn't take away from the overall experience.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first barbequeThis was my first barbeque foray in Philadelphia since my recent trips to Kansas City and Dallas. This was as good as Dallas but not nearly up to Kansas City. I enjoyed chicken and ribs (chicken was very good, ribs were good) and my partner had fish taco's that were good (I thought the sauce was very good). The chicken was small but juicy and flavorfull. Ribs were crispy outside but the sauce was boring. I couldn't find the smoke ring that was evident in Kansas City ribs. The cheese steak egg rolls were outstanding (and a surprise). The home made ice cream was delicious. I found a terrific beer on tap - Alagash White. My only fault is that the entres were served before we had time to eat the egg roll4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed ourWe thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely return. If there is any negative, it is that the noise level is quite high.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMService very good especiallyService very good especially in view of the fact that our group of 5 had to get to the theatre. Nice the restaurant offers a discount for theater-goers. Great food choices and excellent value for money. Several of us found appetizers ample for dinner. Do not much like the "sticky" veneer of the tables but otherwise a good choice for a bite to eat. This is our second time visiting and we anticipate using Smokin' Betty's regularly for our pre-theatre dinners.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food as always.Delicious food as always. I was slightly disappointed by the happy hour food "specials", as it appears that the prices simply correspond with a half-portion of food, not any real discount.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a group - went forGreat for a group - went for my birthday and had a few adjustments to the headcount at the last minute... Added people, removed people, etc. They were totally flexible. Open Table doesn't let you add more than 10 people, but they can definitely handle larger parties - just call!
The food and drinks were delicious - especially for the price point.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter Every timeWe always enjoy this restaurant and our waiter knew is stuff4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the food.This was my second time visiting. Service was very slow, and waiters seemed disinterested in checking in with their tables other than for orders ad checks. The new hostess up front was the only person who had a sense of urgency, quickly cleaning and moving tables, etc. I actually watched a server watch the hostess clear his glasses and then grabbed his tip...sad behavior for a server! I hope management catches on to this and addresses it because the food is good, but as a customer, most people are return customers because of service and experience. Fish tacos are amazing!!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoyed my brunch at SmokinI enjoyed my brunch at Smokin Betty's. The staff was very nice.
My french toast was good, not great. The drinks were very good. I wasn't blown away, but would try it again for lunch/dinner.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for brunch. The menuWe went for brunch. The menu had good options for vegetarians and meat-eaters. I had the Betty Burger and loved every bite.
We had 3 small children with our party and the staff was accommodating and friendly.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here knowing next toWent here knowing next to nothing about this place with so colleagues while in town for a conference. Everyone in our party loved the food.
This will definitely be on my list to return to the next time I am in Philly.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPrices were reasonable. VERYPrices were reasonable. VERY pleasant staff with good service. Food was good, not fab, but very acceptable. What's not to like? I will go back. We were there prime time on a Friday night, and the noise level was higher than I would have like for dining, as opposed to a bar experience.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. but LOUDEverything about this restaurant was great except the noise level. Our food (BBQ sliders and mahi mahi tacos) was fantastic, our server was flawless, we were seated immediately, and every staff member we encountered was friendly. We just could not tolerate the noise level. Not sure if it is always like this on a Friday night, but we had to scream to be heard by our server, and even at our tiny table for two, we were yelling just to try to have a conversation. We ate quickly and did not order dessert, which was a shame because the dessert menu had several great looking items. Also disappointed that they were not offering the beer flights shown on their online menu.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter MenuOMG..I ate way to much but it was so worth it! I had the Easter menu and it was awesome. Greek yogurt with granola and a ton of fruit. I also had the crabcake benedict....delicious!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMglad i found yougreat overall service, amazingly good food, I had the Burger Betty, cheese quesdillas and and a salad. my partner he had the Buffalo Chicken sandwich... fun atmosphere and Cabernet Savuguion was a great tasting wine!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME! waited a bit forAWESOME! waited a bit for our drinks, but we were a large (30) group. Food was awesome - one mom and daughter went back the next night because they were so happy!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitress was very attentiveWaitress was very attentive and food was delicious. We both had ribs and they were very tender. The thin mint bread pudding was huge and yummy.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSignature Betty Burger thumbs up!Smokin Betty's only has a selection of about 5 burgers; we thought it was a burger place.
The Betty Burger is worth every dime. If you are looking for a well prepared delicious burger, this is the place to go.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
