Ribs, Wings, &
Smokey's Bar and Grill0
Why locals love it
It's only been open since summer 2014 and already is very popular. The wings come in orders of 12, 24, or by the bucket. But if you are a meat eater then you really should have the ribs. These are local, not imported, and BBQ is done on the spot. Service leaves something to be desired but that is more than made up for by the food.
Why you should visit it
The long walk up the stairs to the top of the building is a hassle, but think of it as burning off the calories you're sure to consume. Good options (other than local ribs) are the pulled pork sammie (9 USD), Pad Thai with BBQ'ed shrimp (12-15 USD), or rib eye with smokey's rub (27 USD). BBQ sauce options include spicy, passion fruit, and guava!
If you are driving, they have a private lot on Rue Lamarre.
