Some of the best brisket that I've ever tasted. So rich and tender and flavorful that I didn't bother even adding sauce (which is unusual for me). The potato salad was just average, so next time I will order extra garlic toast instead of a side dish. And as an added bonus, the staff could not have been friendlier.

We had a very nice experience today. The server/young man was pleasant. He answered our questions and service was swift. We enjoyed the NC pulled pork bbq, not as tangy as we had hoped, but still very good. My husband was disappointed a bit, because we had driven from Deep Creek area for the KC Pork ribs(St.Louis) style and they wer ... read more

O sweet Lord! I've been looking for good local BBQ and it is here! 5 pm fresh off the smoker ribs are hot and ready! Homemade sauces to add to meat are unique and tasty! Ribs come unsauced and "pure". Can't say enough about the food. Awesome staff and bartenders!

When we went it was pretty empty, which was weird for a weekend, but not bad for me! Lol. It was a quiet atmosphere. I really loved the Gouda Mac n cheese! It was so creamy and rich. I would for sure order that again. I'll be honest and say the smoked wings weren't my favorite, and the slice of bread...while I get the idea kinda thro ... read more

Their backyard is great! Bring the kids -- ours had a blast! The service was also great! We came for the oysters and bbq. Raw Oysters were a 5 ... the coleslaw was good, too. The brisket was a 2.

I returned to Smalls for dinner and was pleasantly surprised to find that my favorite item- the pulled chicken sandwich- was placed back on the menu.  Last time I was here I complained to an employee of the absence of my favorite food, assuming that my complaint went unheard.  Instead, I have found the staff and atmosphere to be very ... read more

Great lunch specials the pork belly sandwich is very tender and the pull pork sandwich is really good the best part is that all their pork is just smoked flavor and they bring you a tray with 4 different flavor options of BBQ sauce, from Texas, NC, Kansas city, and sweet mustard vinaigrette and you go crazy on your favorite one.
