Smokey Bones Restaurant Review

My handsome husband and I eat out most every night. I am going to try to post reviews of some of the places we frequent. Tonight we went to Smokey Bones on Rivers Avenue.

We decided to eat at the bar and watch some of the Best Damn Sports Show sports bloopers. I ordered a Strawberry Daiquiri and Mike had a Yuengling. My daiquiri was the worst one I have ever had. It was incredibly tart almost like it was mistakenly made with margarita mix. The bartender, Marcus, was quick to tell me that he had made it correctly. He said perhaps I had been given the wrong thing before from a new bartender! This made me laugh, as I have had many daiquiris in my life and made many in my life....this one was not good at all. I tried to drink it, but could not. He offered to make me another one, but if he makes them all the same, that would have done me no good. I just ordered a water. To his credit he took it off the bill!

Mike ordered the Beef Brisket Sandwich with mashed potatoes and a bowl of Brunswick Stew. I ordered the Salmon with Roasted Corn as my side. The stew was delicious. The Beef Brisket came out with cheese this time, it hasn't been on there in the past. According to the ticket, the bartender added this, it was not requested. No big deal, Mike just took it off. The meat had a good bit of fat on it, but tasted pretty good. The mashed potatoes were excellent. My salmon was perfect and the corn was good.

Our total bill was $32.06

Daiquiri (taken off the bill) $4.95
Yuengling Draft Pint $2.00 (2)
Beef Brisket Sandwich $8.99
Flame Seared Salmon $14.29
Soup Of The Day $1.99
Sales Tax $2.79

All in all this was a good meal. It was not even half as good as the previous meal we had here. I am sure we will give it another try and hope for that "new" bartender who served us before! :)

Their pulled pork nachos are awesome. That's the only reason I go there.
