    There's better barbecue elsewhere, certainly better service around the corner at Goodfriend. The appetizers and drinks were good; but only outside on the patio. Inside the ambiance was way less than good. Plus there were a lot of flies.

    The food great. Every item ordered looked and tasted great. But our service were impeccable. Antonio, our server, did a great job keeping up our large group (party of 12). We had small children that need food asap, he handled it. Drinks never got low or empty. We will be back.

    Went here for a birthday with a reservation and noted birthday on the reservation. Shown to a table that seemed to be in the overflow section with no decor or ambiance at all. Music was so loud we couldn’t talk, so had to search for an employee to ask for it to be turned down. Table service was beyond slow. Never mentioned birthday. Food was fine, but nothing memorable. Valet is free, but process is confusing. Not likely I’ll return or recommend it to anyone.

    I was really hoping to like this place but it was a huge disappointment. We went for a birthday dinner and it was terrible. The drinks where trash- Smokey old fashioned was not smokey at all and cucumber mojito was actually a margarita with a slice of cucumber. We had the driest brisket tacos that tasted like it was sitting for hours. We asked for sliced avocado but they gave us guacamole like we wouldn’t notice. Later they said they have no avocados. So how did they make guacamole? Or did they just buy from the store and charge us $2 for a quarter size cup. We first planned to come back for bbq but after this experience we will never come back.

    Had a reservation for indoor seating at 12:30. Host assured me that the patio was cool with fans. Not sure why I was not offered an indoor seat. It was a very warm lunch sitting out there. Could not wait to leave.

    Celebrating my daughter and decided to go here for a nice dinner. We’ve been here before, but this time food just wasn’t up to par. Half-Chicken tasted like it had been sitting out for a day or two. The brisket queso had barely any brisket, but yet still paid a premium for it. Overall, just not what we were all expecting.

    I’m a Realtor in Dallas and I decided to bring my out of state clients for a lunch between showings. The staff took AMAZING care of us! My clients were so impressed with the food, drinks and vibe! I also love sitting outside on the patio for brunch, this place is everything 🙌🏻

    I’ve been to Smoky Rose numerous times since they’ve opened (20-30x?), service has always been so-so, but the service during my most recent visit was awful. Once seated, we waited over 20 minutes for someone to take our drink order. Then, waited over an hour for our dinner, and waited another 45 minutes for our check. The restaurant was not crowded and other customers were visibly and audibly annoyed by the lack of attention from the servers. We will not be dining here again.

    Great food and vibes, live music wasn't too loud. Great spot to chill. I must say that our waiter, Ethan, was awesome! He's very personable and enjoyable and really made our group feel welcomed! He says to ask for him when he's home from college and back working at Smokey Rose during his school breaks, and we definitely will! ;)

    Service was absolutely horrible. They made a drink wrong, took it away from me to remake, and still charged us. Multiple things were wrong and we had to go to the bar to ask for a water refill, twice. We’ve been here multiple times and the service gets worse and worse. When asked for an itemized receipt and they told us no.

    We had a reservation for 5 people but they sat us at a 4 person table. Plenty of open tables available too! Then after 45 mins they told us the next party had arrived and we would have to move to a different table. We opted to take the bill and leave. So bizarre to 1) put our party at a small table and 2) ask us to move.

    Valet system is very unorganized entering. After being seated and waiting 10 mins. for a server, asked the hostess to please send someone to bring us water and take our drink order. Waited another 5 - 10 mins. for a server. NOT a good customer service first impression. Food was very good.

    We always enjoy Smoky Rose. Love the patio and the yard. However service was poorly executed. It took over 25 minutes to receive water and drinks after we were seated. I went to the bar to get us water myself. We received the appetizer quickly. I had eaten a little later in the day and ordered dessert for dinner while my companion ordered an entree. I requested that the dessert be brought out with his dinner. It was not and we had to ask twice for it to be brought out. The food never disappoints here and was great.

    Food okay. Server was friendly and attentive. August is not a good time to dine there since you sit under an arbor with fans. Prices were high. Will go again since it’s in the neighborhood but will wait for October/November.
