Smackies - Columbus, OH

  • b

Has anyone tried Smackies BBQ? Apparently they recently opened up off of Hamilton Rd...they have burnt ends and dry rubbed ribs on the menu. I was shocked.

  1. They specialize in ribs. I haven't tried them yet. I had the pulled pork. I'd say a little better than Hoggy's or City BBQ, equal to Pig Iron Skillet. The Memphis sauce was pretty sweet, the Kansas City very sweet, too sweet in fact.

    I guess Sundays 12-5 they have a big buffet w/ brisket, pulled pork, fried chicken, & lots of sides for $12.99. Good place to pig to speak.

    BTW they've moved to 161 & Cleveland Ave.
