We had really poor service from our waiter. Not friendly, disappeared most of the time, and came off as we were disturbing him. I am sure this could be due to labor shortages and hard to keep up, as it was busy for a Monday. However, the service and how someone shows up should not be impacted by this and felt by the customer. The food is great, the environment is great and will go back.
I wasn’t blown away. Atmosphere was really nice but food and drinks were just ok.
My opinion may be skewed as we happen to be there when the Cowboys played in the playoffs. We were in the covered patio space, and it wasn’t that crowded, but we had to yell to hear each other. The staff was not particularly friendly. Food was yum and unique.
Ate inside where it was comfortable and quiet
We actually left the restaurant as not a single staffer was following the face covering protocol and felt unsafe with the dining hall at full capacity. There is live music this night so it’s noisy. This was a business dinner so the noise level was unacceptable for such. Lots of kids and I’ve been here for lunch before and had a nice experience. Dinner is a different scene. The lighting is too bright and while the decor is fine, the layout cold and odd. Didn’t get to the food portion of the review this time but wanted the staff to know we will not be returning until safety (or At a minimum the impression of such) measures are in place. It’s a good place to take kids apparently and has a giant patio in better weather. The parking situation is annoyingly all valet which is uncalled for in East Dallas
We will give another chance when the world returns to its axis. I suspect a lot of what I witnessed was a result of staff shortages
New Year’s Eve we wanted a restaurant with a live band somewhat away from the larger crowds during Covid. We arrived at 8:00 pm and the band had apparently taken a break and didn’t come back! Oh well…we enjoyed the outdoor vibe of the restaurant very much. I appreciated valet service! The Appetizer Nachos and Queso were delicious—hot and spicy. We ordered the Turkey and Beef Faghitas which were delicious; but I felt for the price, there weren’t a lot of Faghitas on the tray. Maybe they were running out! Anyway—the Faghitas were wonderfully flavored and the meat mix was tender & delicious. My husband ordered the Fried Brisket with mashed potatoes and green beans. He said the brisket was tender and he enjoyed it very much.
Great neighborhood bistro/smokehouse.
Average BQQ….very dry and over cooked.
Food and vibe was great but took over an hour for our food to be prepared- kitchen staff was backed up. Management did give us complimentary appetizers since the wait was so long.
We are delighted to have a neighborhood restaurant that has great food. The extensive outdoor dining area makes this a wonderful choice for dining.
Will recommend Smoky Rose to friends…excellent food, service and love the atmosphere! Sean was our server…5 star!
Great place to sit outside and being with friends while enjoying good food. One of our favor places!
Food was great Staff was great Atmosphere was wonderful. BBQ could almost melt in your mouth. Will go back again!
Very consistent and solid barbecue and smoked meats. Great environment for a group. Outdoor dining a plus.
Good food, good bbq, great patio. Great space for families.
Our first time at Smoky Rose and very pleased with the food & drinks. Fabulous restaurant!
Great place for a fun, relaxing evening. Lots of activity and a place for the kids to run around.
The salmon was WAY overcooked and dry. The green beans were good. Its just a really loud place.
We’ve had good experience here until this time. Took over an hour to get our food, over 30 minutes to get our check, and I had to hunt down the server to get my credit card back. The manager was bee dismissive when I tried to talk with him. I’m done.
We had a 5:15 reservation we did not get food till 6:45. They were very busy and I understand with covid that workers are hard to find but this was a little more than Covid issues. Their were people leaving past 7 that had never got food and had been there since 5:30. With a reservation one expects to not have to wait over an hour for food. If this is their normal it should be told to patrons. Than we had to wait another 25 minutes for our car from the valet. We had an event to be at and we were late
i had reserved for Indoor dining but when we arrived, were told there was no indoor dining available; so we had to sit in the open/outside area and had to deal with the very cool evening.
We were seated promptly. Our server took our drink and appetizer order, then gave us plenty of time to look over the menu. Delicious deviled eggs. Good salsa. The Smoky Rose cocktail is refreshing.
Mains - Reuben, Turkey BLT, Smoky Cheddar Burger were all really good. Barbecue beans outstanding, as was the sausage link made in-house.
Love this place! Best patio in Dallas!!
Beautiful texas atmosphere. However very loud. Servers were moving chairs and tables by dragggggging across the floors instead of picking them up. Not sure well go back
Food was excellent. Had very good server and appreciated the valet parking.
Atmosphere was great and booths had a lot of room. Enjoyed the meal and staff was warm and friendly.
Our server was friendly, super professional and engaging. He was gentle with my father, who has advancing Alzheimer's. We were celebrating his 84th birthday and he went out of his was to make it special for him. Thank you for your service, kindness and attention to detail. Also, the BBQ is freaking amazing! Love your place!
Hubby and I have been dying to try this spot. So we invited some friends to join us for a couples night out. Unfortunately, it was a big disappointment. The only thing they have going for them is the ambiance and drinks. They have a large cozy and inviting patio. The weather last night was perfect. The food and service was terrible. I had the salmon, which was very dry/bland and my green beans were still hard. Hubby and Marissa had the Brisket & Homemade Sausage their Brisket & Sausage was cold/bland and hubby's potato salad tasted store bought. After bringing it to the managers attention he offered to correct the problem. He took there food back and instead of them getting fresh hot food they reheated their food and it still came back cold. Management did apologize, but I expect to get A+ service for A+ prices. The parking was another issue. They only have valet parking. The parking lot is so small that it's a mess getting in and out. Then you have to wait 10-15 min to get your car if they parked it at another lot. So at the end of the night there shuttling the valet drivers back and forth to pick up cars from the other lot. If we go back it would only be for their drinks and take a hard pass on their food.
Great atmosphere and excellent food, and all at great rocks. Highly recommend
Smokey Rose did not disappoint! Pat was our server and he was a great salesman. We ordered the Full Board, with 3 of us dining. Let’s just say we had enough food to take two meals home, which we later finished that night. The ribs and brisket were our favorite but all the meats were good. And the baked beans! Oh my. Will be back to dine when in Dallas.
Recommended! Expansive outdoor seating, great selection on menu of expertly smoked meats. We enjoyed Slice Prime Brisket, Collard Greens, Cole Slaw, and Deviled Eggs as appetizer. Attentive and knowledgeable service. Kid-friendly area. Full bar with premium liquors. The Smoker Master, Rob, is very friendly and excels at his craft.
I made reservations for a special dinner with my college student who is home for the holidays. The rude hostess placed us in an awful spot when I had requested a window seat. When I asked to be seated in the open window seat she stated that the table was reserved for a group of 6. Within 5 minutes a couple sat down. Two people without a reservation. Then we waited for 10 min to be waited on. While we waited for our dinner, a fight broke out behind us with two drunk tables. I live in Forest Hills. I’m a neighbor and I will never return.

Service excellent and the food was great. Nice evening on the patio
Restaurant itself was wonderful! Great ambiance and atmosphere! Food was delicious. Service was mediocre but think our server may have been new to his job. Overall it was great except for the service
The food was and has always been great. I like the fusion of the entrees with BBQ and traditional styles. The burnt end porkbelly is one of the best meats I've ever had.
The semi-pickled deviled eggs will be a part of my order from now on. I
like the casual outdoor dining experience and the pace at which the orders are served.
Beautiful setting and ambiance. Unfortunately kitchen was 45 minutes behind, and while the waiter had a charismatic disposition, he kept forgetting what we asked for (plates, utensils, the check).
Disappointed with our server. Overall the food was good.
