    Went there for brunch yesterday, there was a wait time however the food was worth it. I want to try them out for dinner. Awesome location as you get a backdrop of the skyline. All in all worth it.

    The oysters were delicious. The menu is small but the portions were generous and delicious. The fries were AMAZING!! The atmosphere and service were impeccable.

    Everything is delicious. The pulled pork was awesome. Had the family meal, which came with extra thick smoked bacon, very flavorful. Their drinks are superb, especially the Bloody Mary and the 901

    Get the brisket, get the brisket. Cabrito dish is savory and very unique too. Be sure to get your free dessert for first time check-ins. I recommend the key lime merengue pie. Oh and GET THE BRISKET!

    This is a more upscale BBQ experience with a broader offering of starters and sides than most BBQ spots. Try some great cocktails to pair with your meal.

    delicious. had fantastic omelette and great, really different bloody mary. loved the pickled stuff. didn't care for ginger dressing on the salad that accompanied my omelette - seemed out of place.

    The Hash was delicious. Great eggs Benedict too, but the hash really takes the cake. Try the Bloody Mary if you're feeling like you need a drink

    Don't miss the burger with fried egg and thick amazing bacon. Hands down the best burger in Dallas. Try all their signature sauces. Take an after dinner stroll next door for the best view of downtown!

    Brunch: First of all, you MUST get the pancakes and brisket hash. Also get a side of the bacon. Trust me. You've never had bacon like this before.

    Hardwood-smoked ham or paprika and fennel seed beef sausage or bacon! Tim Byres (Chef/Owner) knows what's up for breakfast. BTW This is also my favorite BBQ spot in DFdub.

    Not bad... $4 mimosas. I went with the Farm Eggs Your Way and got their grits & biscuit with homemade jelly. Yum!

    As the name implies, there is plenty of barbecue-from brisket to ribs to real Carolina-style pulled pork. Read more

    You can catch me here either for drinks or Sunday Brunch mostly. Sundays are made fun days starting out at Smoke for Brunch then heading over to Bar Belmont next door for "just one more."

    Get ready for some of the biggest, fluffiest pancakes you've ever encountered, alongside house-smoked sausages and a ton of smoked brisket.

    Trying to eat healthy and enjoy Texas BBQ? Get the FRESH squeezed-in-front-of-you grapefruit juice, and the fresh fish for lunch- halibut today. BBQ craving satisfied in a BIG way!! I <3 Smoke!!

    It's Smoke, Peggy Sue's, and then The Orig Sonny Bryan's BBQ.. in that order. At Smoke, you must try the "Big Rib" (their claim to fame), or pulled pork or spare ribs.

    Ask your waitress if the Big Rib is available when you are seated, and she can reserve one for you before the rest of the table orders!

    Chef Tim Byers takes the farm-to-table trend seriously. All of the butter and jam is homemade, meats are smoked on premises, and liquors are infused in-house. Read more

    Brisket, sausage and ribs, oh my! Must not leave without trying the lime pie (at least one bite, if you can possibly push away)!

    The big rib is the way to go. Make sure to bring that bone home to fido. He'll be forever in your debt.

    The spare ribs & brisket are great, and you get a good amount of food for what you pay.

    Don't plan on a productive afternoon after filling up on handmade biscuits and sausage gravy or smoked salmon eggs florentine at Smoke.

    Slather on some of Smoke’s house-made jam and you have some down-home—albeit artisanal—eating.
