Although the building looks small the taste is not. Smokin Bar-B-Que located in the heart of Dayton, Ohio is a small, quiet Texas BBQ joint. No table to choose from just a front and back counter. Even though it may not look like much it will surprise.
The menu is just like any other barbecue restaurant… only bigger. Almost every cut of meat is available in three sizes (sandwich, dinner, or by the pound.) Cooked in house for hours the meat seems to not only fall apart, but liquefy in to a grand juncture of meat, fat, and flavor. The meats are served dry with sauces available on the counter. The sauces themselves, both the sweet and the spicy, are made in house like almost everything.
The interior is small but the service is fast enough that even on a busy day it doesn’t feel crowded. The kitchen is open to the “Dinning room” and one can see all the fixing that are being used to make a meal. From simple bread to spices nothing too fancy at this location.
Located across from the Neon Movie Theater Smokin Bar-B-Que is a great place for a pre movie meal, a great lunch or a hearty dinner.
Quick Tip: Order ahead for whole cuts, like full chickens or even duck.
