    Went here on a whim while driving through the area. The outside is unassuming but don’t let that deter you because you won’t regret it! The service was incredibly friendly and they brought out some real good bbq. Putting this on our recommendations list! 11/10 would come here again.

    Long live Smoky Jon’s! That grill master they got back there has got some talent. Says he’s been doing it 23 years. That’s a national treasure if you ask me :)Best BBQ in Madison, possibly in Wisconsin. I haven’t traveled enough around here yet to know. The ribs are probably the best I’ve ever had.

    Some of the best BBQ around. They have a ton of awards and I can see why. The brisket was done to perfection. Tender and juicy the sauce was not to sweet or spicy. We will be back!

    This is the best barbecue in Madison, bar none. Why are you bothering with any place else? Sweet, tangy, spicy bbq sauce and tender meat smoked for hours and hours. No brew but I honestly didn't miss it, the meat and sauce were so good. Big portions, reasonable price, old-timey decor like a Texas roadhouse. Highly recommended.

    Very pleased. For the amount of food given at the price listed on their menu, which as not changed since new ownership, you're getting an outstanding deal. I ordered mine as a tentative "to go" as I was meeting a friend after work but it was so delicious I could have finished off the (what I consider a large meal) in one sitting.Now I have to go explore the rest of the menu!

    Family member likes coming here, ordered for me and I love it, so does my buddy. Sauce is perfect sweet, with a hint of spice. Brisket was juicy. Would bring the family here sometime. Hard to believe people hate it, but the truth is, everyone is different, like me and most americans, loving ketchup on fries, but my 20 year old daughter hates ketchup.

    Hadn’t been to Smoky Jon’s in a few years, so happy we trekked in to the north side today. Staff was very friendly and helpful with ordering off the large menu. We had ribs and the shredded pork with sides….absolutely outstanding. Put together just right-no need to ask for more sauce and portions were perfect. Can’t say enough about the staff and the food. O and it smells awesome in this place. Didn’t try the brisket so maybe next time but it’s going to be hard to get off them ribs.RIP Jon.HIGHly recommend.

    I was fortunate enough in 2014 to drive past Smoky Jon's on my way to work, it just so happens I have relatives that live near Madison where I was working out of town( I am from MN) at the time. My friend and I bought $100 worth of food... We went back the next day and spent even more!! Absolutely one of the best BBQ places in all of my travels anyways! The original barbecue sauce is absolutely AWESOME!! I literally put it on almost everything! I have just received my second case(12 bottles each) in two years lol!I would STRONGLY suggest you give Smoky Jon's a try if your in the Madison area!!

    I travel throughout the US and go to a lot of bbq places, preferably the hole in the walls and not the bbq chains. At this time the ribs and brisket sandwich was both dry. Half the ribs was not edible, to hard. The sides were ok. The service was great 👍the gentleman who brought me my food was awesome. I will give it another try next week. I will update.

    Pulling up to this place with the family, I was a bit skeptical. The location isn't fantastic and overall, it looked a bit dive-y. The staff is very energetic and stand behind the restaurant and all they do, which is a good vouch for the company, however, it can be a bit abrasive while trying to have a meal with my family that I won't be seeing for months. I'm trying to eat, man. With my family...With all that being said, the food is MIND BLOWING. And I don't say that often. Not a huge BBQ guy. Not a huge meat guy. My mother got a burger, my wife got chicken, I got a brisket sandwich. Holy EFF! it was so good I have dreams about it. My brother and I both bought a bottle of sauce to take home and I'm rationing it like it's WWII.I will 100% be going back here. I past it to go to work twice a day. Love love love it. They deserve all the awards littered all over the walls. They deserve the title #1 BBQ. 🥇🏆🥇

    Food is amazing, everything our group tried, from the burger, chicken breast, fries, coleslaw, Mac and cheese were all amazing.I didn't expect the burger to be so good, but somehow it was.All the meat was very tender and flavorful.Finally somewhere that gives you enough sauce on the side.I even bought a couple bottles to take home.If I wasn't from out of town, I would definitely be a regular here.Prices are extremely reasonable as well.
