The Smoke Ring Reviews & Ratings

  • Smoke Ring is a great place to come if you’re going to watch a game at the MB Stadium. They have a Game Day menu. Lots of the favorites and they are all good. The fried pickles are a must. They are perfectly fried and the sauce pairs with it perfectly. I ordered a pulled pork plate and the pork was well seasoned and juicy. It is a large portion of pork so you will not be disappointed. I chose fries and Brussels sprouts and they were all good. My partner ordered the Show Stopper and boy is it one big sandwich. The bread is not going to hold all that food so don’t fight it. It will be messy and delicious. My friend got the wings and he loved it. Verdict: If you’re looking for a good BBQ near the stadium, this is it.

  • Highly disappointed with the food in Smoke Ring. First of all, customer service was excellent. The waitress was very attentive and nice. Many of the food items were unavailable though. There were no wings, no 1/2 chicken or there very popular corn on the cob just too name a few. They apparently had a couple of busy nights in a roll and sold out. This was understandable so I decided to stay. I ordered the pork belly and BBQ pulled chicken with Mac and cheese and baked beans as sides. Both the pork belly and pulled chicken were dry and had no taste. The pork belly slices were also thin and chewy. They did have a white mayo BBQ sauce that was delicious though. The Mac and cheese looked beautiful but tasted okay. I did enjoy their sweet baked beans. My wife had the brisket which she did enjoy but couldn't say the same about the pulled chicken or the Mac and cheese. It was probably the day I visited but It was very disappointing especially when your visiting.

  • It was ok!! I have had better at Fox Bros or Fat Mack's. The turkey was great! The greens had too much tomatoes in them and the mac and cheese was runny! Cool vibe and had great service from our server Derrick!

  • I was craving some southern barbeque so I looked up this place and saw great selection for meat and sides. And it was sunday, so they were doing bottomless mimosas, and very generous ones ;). Most importantly the meat was rubbed well and the sauce was tangy and spicy. They also have a small outdoors patio which is great to enjoy the heat. Would come here again!

  • Came here before a MLS game. Place was packed with a wait. Hit the bar ordered drinks and food... Brought the food to an outside table which was cool with the staff. Avoided the wait and got to eat a very tasty pulled pork sandwich with Mac n cheese. Everything was on point and the service at the bar was great. Next time I go see a game... It's likely I'll eat here before.
