We were the last customers for the night, so maybe that’s why the food came out like warm at best

$23.00 for a very inferior brisket dinner. Brisket was so dry it was crispy, you could pick it up like a chip. Waitress was very nice an$ replaced it but results were very similar. She explained they smoke it overnight but when ordered they crisp it in the fryer to heat it up.

AMAZING FOOD! Brisket was my #1 fave. Pork sliders great, lettuce wraps tacos amazing! They had great group packages available to serve 6-10 people. The place was hard to find walking through Cesar's Palace, but it is on the lower level near Starbucks. Workers at other stands and restaurants didn't seem to know where it was or that it even existed. I have to say there were 7 women in our group and we LOVED it! Food was amazing, service fantastic, so friendly and accommodating! Highly recommend this place!!

One of the best burgers I've had in years! My spouse and I shared the BBQ Madness Burger (burger with BBQ brisket, crispy onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and cheese) along with a side of mesquite fries and a root beer float. Needless to say....heaven! :)

We used a Travelzoo deal and had more food than the 4 of us could ever eat! The nacho appetizer was huge and delicious, we also had the burnt tips, they were good, too! I had ribs, potato salad and baked beans. Simply delicious. My friend’s salmon was very tasty. Desserts were good, not great. We had the brownie and thought it would be served warm with hot fudge, but it was cold. The banana pudding was good, but not great. I had a Long Island Tea, which was tasty 😋
The wait staff and manager were delightful and very helpful. We asked to be seated somewhere warm (it was freezing in Vegas when we were there) but we ended up beside a door to the outside and many people went in and out. We were freezing. Still a great restaurant with great food!

Excellent service! Everyone was friendly, helpful, & personable. It's not a huge strip restaurant, a bit smaller so the prices were reasonable, had great happy hour specials and the BBQ was excellent!

Right in the name it says SMOKED and nothing was smoked. It was cheap low quality presliced brisket like you get at Costco that they charred way past edible and threw BBQ sauce on it. The only good thin was the fries. By far the worst meal I have ever had on th Strip and I'm a local.

Worst meal that I have had in Las Vegas. Had the brisket burnt ends. (They are not ends of anything and they are not burnt.) They chop a piece of fatty brisket in cubes coat with bbq sauce and serve

Brisket sandwich. Slabs of the same fatty tough brisket piled high on toast. Hugely unappealing.

Uninspired sauces and no unsweetened ice tea ( in a barbecue place??!!!)

I actually doubt that the meat is cooked there. No sign of smoker, pit, grill, smoke any where .

I Left virtually all food on the plate to be tossed away. The waitress didn’t even notice or comment that all the food she brought went back to be tossed in the garbage

$62 for what I described and a hamburger.

Don’t be lured by the Groupon a must miss

Food was amazing. One of the tastiest burger I have had. The service was awful. Took 15 mins before someone took our order. We made sure to order everything when the opportunity finally came. Took enough 20 minutes just to get our drinks. Took another 20 minutes for the food. No one came to check in on us. Had to send a SOS just to get the check.

Purchased the all you can eat and unlimited drinks deal for (2).
Food came out so slow that we just have a few drinks and left.
Received all the side dishes but never got the bbq.
Stayed for 1hr then left.
Spent $150+
Wasn’t worth it but bartenders and waiters are amazing!!!

This is a hidden gem for those at Caesar's Palace and/or Forum Shops. Half the fun was finding this casual and fairly inexpensive eatery for being on the strip. Our party enjoyed the chicken lettuce wraps, chili, buttermilk biscuits with fried chicken, and pulled pork sandwich. Everything was GOOD! And the service was helpful and friendly without being over indulgent. We will definitely return!

So this was first time at smoked burgers & bbq. We made last minute reservation we're able to get in for table of 6. The we were there celebrating my birthday and of course to watch few football games. The place is small but the seating is very well placed to view all TV's. It's been open since January so it's fairly new to the forum shops. The food is great if you like BBQ this is the place to go and have a hearty meal. We had the all you can eat brunch and tried the burnt ends, ribs,bbq chicken,wings and Mac n cheese OMG so good. We also tried the chicken sliders with a blueberry sauce yum. You definitely will not be disappointed in any of the menu items. We met Joey the owner he was great. As owner you usually don't see them carryout food, cleaning up or greeting guest. He did all that as was very pleasant to talk to. He kept coming around all the tables making sure all was happy. Being football season he has great drink specials . If you have chance to go by as local I highly recommend this place. Also the forum valet is right outside the restaurant easy in and out. I will be back next Sunday for football watching 😁

Brisket was ok. Burger was good. Fries were very good. Sweet potato fries were soggy. Mac n cheese was bland. We used a Groupon, but if not it would be really overpriced.

We had a burger with mesquite fries and a pulled pork platter with sweet potato fries and aked beans. Both were good. The BBQ sauce was awesome and homemade. I thought the iced tea was over-priced, though.
They have a special going for $15--their basic burger, your choice of fries, and a beer. That's a pretty good value for the Strip.

Great ambiance and staff but it did suck to be forced into a 30.00 min each when others weren't and the reason we booked here was for the fireworks. The view was HORRENDOUS! Had we been told that there were trees obstructing our view and that you could see it better for free right outside the venue I would have done that instead since we ended up taking 75% off our food home anyway and really just had drinks here after all. 250.00 later and all I can say was at least the DJ was awesome and our waitress was always smiling but ABSOLUTELY got ripped off at the idea of front row seats.

Ordered the daily special/"secret menu" blue cheese crumble burger with mesquite fries. After a 20-25 minute wait, was told the main ingredient (blue cheese crumble) was not available (...explanation from kitchen was that the "crumble' was ordered, but they received blue cheese dressing instead...). So, my "special" burger was, in fact, a very regular burger....

we made a 6;45 reservation. Showed up at 6:40. We were told that we would have to sit outside. It was 90 degrees outside. The restaurant should have told us this when we made the reservation. Iy was a saturday night and we were a party of 7 left scrambling for a place to eat.
Just terrible!
