Smoke Rack BBQ - Lansdale, PA

Has anyone eaten at this restaurant or had take out? It has been open for about 2 years, but I have just recently found out about it. I was wondering how it stacks up to Uncle Gregs and Smoke Daddy's.

      On Walnut St just off of Main St near the train station

    2. This place only opened up in Lansdale a couple of months ago, not 2 years. I tried the beef brisket and mac & cheese. The brisket was decent, pink smoke ring was visible, good aroma, okay flavor. Mac & cheese was yummy, but miniscule portion size. For $2.50, you got what seemed like a 1/4 cup serving. I prefer Uncle Gregs, but would return here in a pinch.

      1. I know this is an awfully old post so maybe you've already been and decided, but thought I'd throw in my two cents since there's not a lot online to find about this place.

        Don't know about "stacking up" because it's very different. Big menu. To be honest I don't know if they focus as obsessively on the meat and the technical aspects of a single BBQ style so much as making food that they love and want to share. Creative specials, good choices from apps right through to desserts. Sit-down option, BYOB and really friendly, passionate owner and staff. We've liked everything we've had.

            Sampler platter (which has pulled pork, ribs, and chicken) is good; as far as sides go I like the greens and cornbread the best. They had a "Rachel" on the specials board, either brisket or pulled pork with cole slaw and thousand island, on a grilled bun - that was VERY good, pretty big and admittedly messy.

            Pumpkin bread pudding, while not very pumpkiny, was SO GOOD.

            Also on the specials board was a smoked turkey sandwich with stuffing and some kind of cranberry sauce. There was too much to choose from but I am hoping to go back really soon to give that a try.
