About Smokey's BBQ - Joo Chiat

In the heart of Singapore’s Joo Chiat heritage conservation district is a restaurant that is distinctly un-Singaporean. Smokey’s BBQ is an American smokehouse and grill, one of two in the city. This branch, along Joo Chiat Place, has a sister in Sunset Way, but both are equally committed to the cause of American cuisine: home-smoked meats, big portions, and US-style table-service. Read on for more on what makes Smokey’s BBQ special.

Happy Hour from 11.30am to 7pm and 10pm to close.

More about Smokey's BBQ - Joo Chiat, Singapore

Singapore’s Smokey’s BBQ imports a special blend of mesquite and hickory wood chips to use in their custom-built smoker units, in which tender cuts of chicken, beef, pork, and seafood are slowly roasted for up to 20 hours in the traditional American way. From there it’s a quick trip to your table – diners at Smokey’s BBQ Joo Chiat can enjoy gingham-tablecloth outdoor seating along Joo Chiat Place – where the freshness of your food is shot through with that unique smoked flavour. Top it all with a Smokey’s BBQ sauce – try their homemade barbecue sauce or the piquant blue cheese dressing – and you have an unbeatable flavour sensation.

Smokey’s BBQ have been perfecting their brand for years now, and they’ve certainly hit their stride, with an executive chef homegrown in the US laying out a feast fit for Independence Day, every day. After warming up with Tex-Mex starters and slider, St Louis spare ribs, chicken legs, prime beef brisket, baby back pork ribs, Angus beef, southern fried smoked fish, and Dutch veal ribs duke it out down Joo Chiat Place with insanely ambitious burgers and smoked sandwiches, grilled steaks cooked to perfection, as you like it. Put it this way, Smokey’s BBQ’s menu demonstrates the doctrine of manifest destiny in ways other American restaurants in Singapore do not.

Good food, nice and quiet environment. Wait staff had been helpful though one of them looked like she was not in a very good mood that day.

Really good spot for outdoor BBQ style restaurant. Portions were almost too big, but the food was VERY good. Our meal consisted of - Wngs, Pulled Pork sandwich, Burger, Jug of Belgium Wit. Wings were generously large, and ours (spicy) had just the right amount of flavor. Pulled pork sandwich was second to none, and probably the best I have ever had...and I have tried BBQ in many countries, including the U.S. Buns were large enough for the amount of meat in the sandwich but not so thick to distract from the main item! Meat was heavily smoked (and I don't necessarily like smoked) - THIS WAS REALLY GOOD! And the beer was served with frosted mugs - hit the spot VERY nicely. Service was pleasant but a little slow. We will be coming back and bringing some friends with us.

I have had a meal at Smokey's 2 previous times over a year ago, and each time was great food & service . With my family being from the US my wife requested Smokey's for mothers day in which our party of 7 included my wife, son age 13, son age 19 & his girl friend, daughter & her husband, and my self. Our reservation was @ 7pm in which we were seated fairly quickly, and order was taken fairly quickly as well. Shortly after ordering the waiter came to our table to explain that the fryer was down so they would be give us salads instead of French fries. (No problem) Then 15 minutes goes by and our party sees waiters delivering plates full of fries to tables around us some of which arrived well after our party did. So I asked the waiter if our table could get some fries as well. Waiter said he would try. Then 25-30 minutes goes by and I ask the waiter for a update on the food and he said he would check. He returned with fries and said the remainder of our food would be out in 20 minutes. At 8:45 our food finally arrived after see people served that were seated way after our party had ordered. Now the food was good but then to top off the night my sons girl friend had a piece of metal (like a staple from the packaging) in her burger. Luckily she did not bite on it to hard. We notified the waiter and she gave him the piece of metal. To end the story they tried to charge me extra for the plates of fries that were suppose to come with the meals, and then after some debate they removed the fries from the bill then offered a 10% discount ( which barely covers the cost of the meal with metal in it) on our almost $300 bill for the incontinence of waiting for 1 hour 45 minutes for our food to show up, and having metal in it.

The prices seemed to have gone up since my last visit but lovely food - service is good too. It's a great spot to sit out and enjoy Joo Chiat ambiance and experience al fresco dining. The beer is super - had the Brooklyn lager and the Connors stout. Also shared a bottle of Spanish red which was very reasonably priced at $51. Two of us shared the huge beef short rib ($46) and chicken wings ($12) while another had the Monster burger with beef chilli ($33). A really pleasant way to spend a Sunday evening.

It is here that you will be able to find the true american bbq (ribs, pulled porc, brisket, buffalo wings, etc.). On the sides they are missing out on a fundamental: mac n' cheese.. not even sweet potato fries (which are also a personal favorite).. Nevertheless, it's worth it. Service is totally not up to US standard as stated in their website.. We had to bother to ask for them to take our order.. Tables were not very clean.. Which is always a "no no". We didn't get any of our ordered drinks refilled.. I guess they're leaning on the food, hope that lasts.

The food was incredible! We had the baby back ribs, the St Louis ribs and the Brisket.., the St Louis was cooked to s "fall off the bone" standard and the brisket just melted in my mouth! Washed it all down with an awesome Archipelago beer. Service was great and friendly as well. My folks were very happy with the place and left with the intention to come back again for more!

Food is great and they do give you American portion sizes so from that aspect it was a great experience. However, service is terrible! Just really bad - not attentive, no empathy like you ordered ribs with fries and coleslaw so you might need utensils and napkins, or ice water... never checking on the table if everything is alright although we did end up paying $400. Nothing, service is just horrible.
