Review №2

Best BBQ in Southeast Missouri!! I recommend everyone stop by for delicious food and and their super friendly staff!!

Review №3

Great pulled pork and tomato cheese soup

Review №4

The food was great and the folks running the place were sweet. They took great care of the seating due to covid and it was nice to try a new place for our first outing in weeks.

Review №5

Absolutely amazing food and super friendly staff. I work near here and usually have the big tex meal 2-3 times a week. The best bbq meal I have ever had!!

Review №6

Most excellent food. Nearly all home made fresh by miss Eileen. Friendly staff. Terrific specials. Try the French dip or burnt brisket ends with daily cut french fried potatoes and choice of two kinds of slaw.

Review №7

I called to get a order of ribs to pick up and she still had a whole hr until close, I couldn't get any ribs!

Review №8

The Meat was Awesome!!!!Fries andMac n cheeseNeed a lot of help.The meat alone is enough to over look it.Definitely recommend to others.

Review №9

Best BBQ in the city of Cape Girardeau, home of that chain issue just hometown locals making it right and the best potato salad I've ever eaten besides from moms..of course

Review №10

Great BBQ. Love the potato casserole

Review №11

Try the baked potato casserole and the corn nuggets. The ribs were really good too.

Review №12

Suggested if you haven't dined here, it's a wonderful little gem with pit smoked meats. Our party of two had the 1/2 order of ribs.Wow, the meat was the most succulent, tender, mouthwatering we've consumed in recent memoryThis restaurant is rather small and cramped for space. There is limited outside dinning available.On each table, they have available, at least three squeeze bottles of their house bbq sauces.The only negative would be on this visit, the fountain coca cola, had a very nasty carbonated taste to it, very flat, with no fizz.Price wise menu items $$

Review №13

Enjoyed the Pulled Pork Nachos, topped with everything. Baked beans were on it, a nice surprise!Staff.... except for owner, never felt that they were helpful enough with menu guidance.

Review №14

Great bbq great service

Review №15

Best BBQ in the area! ️️️️️

Review №16

Very good food, prices are a bit high in my opinion as a 6-inch sandwiches combo meal was priced over $9. You do get what you pay for though and the meal was definitely delicious. Their zesty sauce was fantastic;

Review №17

Phenomenal! My new go-to place for bbq. Food was SOOOOO GOOD. The pulled pork was so flavorful and moist and prices were great. Very relaxing, home-touches inside. Staff was very welcoming.Seriously-bypass all the others, and make a straight shot to their door. Hands down, best in the area. Will DEFINITELY be back!

Smokehouse 61, located at the NE corner of William and Kingshighway (in Cape Girardeau, Missouri) has a great selection of meaty sub style sandwiches and sides. If you took a regular sub-shop and then filled it with some great BBQ and smoked meats and added fresh sides and some very friendly faces then you'd be describing Smokehouse 61. Their brisket and BBQ are excellent, the prices reasonable and the sauce selections are amazing. There's a broad variety of sandwiches options, which sometimes makes ordering difficult. I recommend checking out the specials. The French Dip is nice, but my current favorite is the Northeast Smoked Chicken. As far as I'm aware the meats are smoked locally and taste wonderful.

Review №19

Ate there twice. Got sick both times and is overpriced.

Review №20

HOLY SMOKES !!!!! The premiere bbq joint in amd the potato casserole, forget about it....... it's amazing!!!!

Review №21

Meat might be good not sure girl forgot to put any on my nachos had to ask for it then got less on a full order than my husband did on half of his sandwich! First time visit. Wouldn't go back. Felt like we were a bother to them.

Review №22

I enjoyed the food when this place first open. There baked beans were literally to die for! I have bought many quarts of them. However haven't been in this business for the last 6 months cause ever time I go in I'm less and less impressed by their food, it is not as good as it once was. And don't get me started on their ordering system it has always been extremely poor. If you are going by yourself and it is slow then it is not a huge deal. But I took my family and we all ordered something different. I was stuck up there the hole time while they cook/made our order. Meanwhile, everyone else sat down. I had to tell the staff multiple times what side paired with what sandwich. Then you're allowed to finally pay after your food is done. Not being able to sit down and relax at all still needing to get your own drink too. It is just weird, when I tell you my order PUT IT IN THE COMPUTER AND MAKE A TICKET. Don't try to memorize it on the front end, hold me hostage while it is being made, and make me repeat it on the back end when you actually put it in the computer so I can pay.

Review №23

Pork steak was amazing, tender and juicy

Review №24

They took most of the good sandwiches off and the hours on the website, google page, ect are all different. Used to love, not so much anymore.

Review №25

I moved down from Iowa, this was one of the 1st places my husband I tried when we moved here. Their Pulled Pork Plate is so tasty, but my favorite thing is home made fries. I always look for restaurants that serve grewtvfries. It is now my favorite place to eat. We sit on patio, and we are able to have our puppy with us outside. A great experience!

Review №26

My lunch order wasn't correct. I also paid for catering that won't happen untill this weekend. Hopefully the catering order will be correct!

Review №27

Roasted pepper soup w/Gouda was delicious and the beef ribs cooked just right!

Review №28

Great Place To Eat , Excellent Food And Service . San Diego Cali.Thank You

Review №29

Delicious BBQ, can't go wrong stopping in at the Smokehouse.

Review №30

Not too bad gotta try more on the menu next time

Review №31

OverratedIf you think this bbq is good or great then you should get out more. This is a fast food joint that sells meat covered in some kind of sauce.Expensive too.

Review №32

The food was good and the staff was very friendly. They even gave me bones to give to my dog. Would definitely visit again!

Review №33

It's OK. Expensive for the portion size. It's cool for cape since we don't get authentic BBQ here.

Review №34

Porksteak dinner was very good. My wife had the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich and it was equally delicious. They also have a goid selection of homemade sauces.

Review №35

Great food and service- they were very attentive to my order, fries were fresh not already done, sizeable portions- overall value was good too

Review №36

Best Bar B Q I have ever eaten. They have a choice of 3 sauces at the table. The potato casserole is fabulous and should be illegal. The baked beans are delicious which I am usually ho-hum about other than my own. Try the pulled pork nachos for something different and delicious. The classic sandwiches are amazing. My mouth is watering.

Review №37

Delicious! I had the pulled pork and it was fantastic - my friend had the pulled pork nachos (soo good)! The cole slaw (with mayo) had me scraping the bowl for more, that almost never happens. Super clean, friendly service, and lots of sides to choose from. So happy we skipped the fast food joints and went for Smokehouse 61!

Review №38

Some really solid Mac and cheese and the bbq is great too.

Review №39

The food tasted really good, but you do NOT get what you pay for. I was very disappointed. I got the half order of BBQ nachos and literally it was mainly chips that's it, I asked for extra mean and spreaders a couple slivers on. They need better customer service and to give you what you pay for!

Review №40

Good food - I had the brisket with potato salad and beans. I actually didn't like the beans due to sweetness but many people will like them. Excellent customer service. My reason for 4 stars is because tables needed to be cleaned off for new customers to be sit. We had to clean/bus the table we chose.

Review №41

The food here is very overpriced and the quality is eatable but nothing special.

Review №42

Went at lunch time. Had ribs, fall off the bone tender. Potato salad was good. And the cornbread was awesome. First time I've been recommend giving it a try.

Review №43

Guess we have different ideas of good BBQ than the reviews I read. Fries weren't cooked in hot enough oil and were limp and greasy. Meat from the ribs was falling off the bones and pretty chewy. The bbq beans were extremley sweet. Doubt if we go back.

Review №44

Great food.Friendly staff.Cozy environment.Greater choice.Eileen, the owner is the best!

Review №45

Ordered a pick up order and didn't receive any sauce on the pulled pork sandwhich, the cheesy fries looked and tasted burnt and very little cheese. Won't order again. Very dissappointed.

Review №46

Some of the greatest BBQ I've ever had! Wow! If you haven't gone, you need to go there! Brisket is great, sauces are great, nachos Will have you coming back, ribs are to die for, and the service is 2nd to none. It's our favorite spot in Cape.

Review №47

Review №53

Clean and cozy atmosphere coupled with amazing BBQ would have earned this restaurant five stars except they were out of their best side dish.

Review №54

Some of the best bbq ribs I have eaten. Baked beans and Cole slaw was very good also. Price is a little high, but worth it.

Review №55

Food is good but seemed to be only chips to go with your sub and they were very limited as to the kind they were.

Review №56

Love the food, good atmosphere, they literally take a potato and make the french fries as you watch. Good barbecue and good service.
