Nice service; excellent smoked ribs; BBQ sauce was adequate, but not outstanding - the well smoked and flavorful ribs did not need BBQ sauce anyway ...

Immediate seating upon arrival. Competent, courteous, and friendly waitress, greeted us, served our drink order immediately. Our food order was taken and delivered amazingly fast.
Everything I've ever ordered has been high quality and tasty. The ribs are ABSOLUTELY above compare. It breaks my heart to see people putting barbecue sauce on these ribs. They are AWESOME right off the pit. The dry rub is perfect.

Fabulous ribs!! Best all around!! Hands down - best I’ve ever had. However, the green beans were just canned & no taste. The sweet potato rolls are amazing! It’s a really loud atmosphere, so don’t go if you want to talk & hear what others are saying.

Appetizers were great. It started off good but our food sat for over 5 minutes at the window. When the waitress came by to check on us we asked if our food was the food that had been sitting there she said no and did not check. A few minutes later another waitress said it was our food. When we got it it wasn’t very warm and the brisket was dry. Flavor on food was good.

The pulled pork platter was delicious. Their sweet potato muffins and pecan butter are GREAT! I just wish they would get an IPA on draft.

We enjoyed the drive out in the country to a new restaurant for us. The wait staff was very helpful and friendly. If you like smoked food I would highly recommend.

i love your food but this time, i had the Piggy Back sandwich. and the pulled pork was cold. The last time i got it it was not that way and was very good and hot. . Also my bacon was cool as well. The other couple that we had with us had the 1.2 rack and they said they were cold as well. Fries were hot. Mac was luck warm. This does not stop us from coming back but hopefully this will help in future. Our reservations were for 6 and at that time not very busy but it was getting that way as we were eating.

Thanks

Service was great, and quick. Still have a limited menu, I want some Texas chili!! The ribs seem to improve every time, and I thought they were the best the first time. Awesome fall off the bone tender, moist, delicious!! Everybody says the barbecue sauce is outstanding, but I have yet to risk messing up the flavor of those dry rub ribs just like they come off the pit. All the sides I've had are great, also. If you haven't tried 'em, you'd better!! Friday night only.

Food was excellent, but kitchen/service was chaotic. Appetizer came with entrees, queso wasn't put on the side with queso burger, onions/tomatoes mix-up on tacos, no muffins brought for 2 entrees.

Excellent ribs!! Loved them!! Best we’ve had anywhere! The muffins were ultra delicious!
The Mac-n-cheese & smoked mushrooms weren’t as tasty. We’ll definitely try different sides the next time.

Short staffed I think. We waited a half hour before waitress came to table, and that was after we went and asked her. I think she thought we had already ate. It happens. Not upset.

We came for rib night and all eight in our group enjoyed our meals. The quality was outstanding, portions generous, service excellent and, having a reservation we had no wait at all for our table. Even the next day, our leftovers were delicious! We’ll be back!

Steak ordered med well, bleeding when cut. Returned to cook Came back to table cold and still bloody. Mushrooms as side where cold and really tasted as it was marinated in liquid smoke. Very expensive lesson. I do not recommend this establishment

They were out of ribs for the evening with no fare warning. Service and food was slow. Food was a little cold like it had been sitting ready for a while before it got. Delivers. The server was very nice though.

Several dishes on the menu were not available. Wings were overcooked and dry, pulled pork was served cold and very greasy, pit beans were also cold. Fries were cold. Brisket was fatty and the smoked chicken was dry. Very disappointing experience. This was my second visit. The first time was very good. Today, not so much.

We apologize if it was a disappointing experience, and we’ve addressed your comments with management and kitchen staff. We hope that you decide to join us again – we have Rib Fridays twice a month and brunch once a month that we highly recommend. Please give us a call if you have any questions, we hope to see you.

As usual, the BBQ at Eddie Joe's Icehouse was fantastic. We tried the Tex-Mex enchiladas with brisket and they were great. Highly recommend. I'd stay away from the tacos, however, they were just so-so.

Noise level was fine. It's a "pub" with the sports going on tv and just general conversations of the locals. Food was amazing. The smoke mushrooms were awesome!!! The waitress was very kind and attentive. EJ's has a great relaxed atmosphere for anyone. I'll be seeing you again soon!

We had a large party of 11 (3 were children). We were told the kitchen was understaffed. They brought the kids food not long after we ordered but the remaining 8 of us didn’t get food until a long time after. Not a big deal to wait, but when the food came out it was cold. A wait isn’t an issue if the food is good, but the food was just ok. I’ve eaten here in the past and really enjoyed it. So I’ll put this up to a bad night.

Made reservations last minute on a Friday night and table was ready when we arrived. Brisket was wonderful as was the service. Have been many times and will definitely return again! Short drive from Lafayette makes this our favorite smokehouse destination.
