The Smoque Shack

New meat restaurant alert!!  The Smoque Shack recently opened up in the market and people are flocking to it, so tonight I got to see what all the fuss was about.  Basically, this place specializes in BBQ’d meats.  As if that reason alone isn’t enough to love it, it turns out these BBQ’d meats are extremely delicious.  The whole evening there was great – the worst part was having to make a decision about what to order. I’ll be back because I have to try the ribs!  But in the meantime, have a look at some of the Smoque Shack’s delicious creations…

It all started with the homemade lemonade 🙂  They had Arnold Palmers on the menu too!

It wasn’t long before we were onto the meat course.  Pulled Pork with Tangy Coleslaw to be exact!

Chris had the pulled chicken.  I got a bite, and it was awesome.  Note the toasted buns…love that.

Very solid sides included spicy fries and crispy, thickly breaded onion rings.  MMMMMM!

I could have eaten 100 of these!

This place will definitely be added into the restaurant rotation!


The second visit was just as successful as the first.  To prove it to you, check out the meaty, saucy rib tips we started with:

I had a huge 8 oz burger seasoned with a homemade spice blend….strong in the pepper and cumin flavours.  It definitely worked!  The smoked bacon and cheddar didn’t hurt either.

Sample platter included ribs, brisket ( I think…) and cornbread.

Last but certainly not least was the mac and cheese side dish.  The cheese on top was sort of crispy….awesome.
