BBQ in southington, CT

Wondering if anyone has been to Smokin with Chris in Southington? Looking to go out with 2 other couples casual night out. Other suggestions greater Hartford area casual good food good beer establishments?

  1. A coworker gave it a meh....Near Hartford try Flagstead in Farmington for bbq, or J Timothty's Plainville for casual, beer selection and wings

    1. If Middletown isn't out of range, consider Taino Smokehouse on South Main Street (a.k.a. Route 17). It's in the plaza across from Pameacha Pond next to Ace Hardware and we love it!

      It's a small spot, I should mention, but great food and they do serve beer (though not an extensive list).

      1. I really like Smokin' With Chris. I'd definitely recommend it. Flagstead is super casual (great but casual)....i.e. your night out will end 15 minutes after you've eaten. Smokin' has a full bar, bands sometimes and a much fuller menu.
