I'm still meandering through the ABCs of Dining - my quest to eat at a new restaurant that starts with each letter of the alphabet - and am up to the letter S. The vote was close but smoQ won out and I was pretty happy - especially since I'd just purchased a Groupon for them!
Our Groupon was for the Memphis Sampler ($44 value - we paid $22). If I can remember everything it came with: 1/2 slab ribs, 1/4 chicken, pulled pork, brisket, 2 sausages, cornbread, salad and 3 sides. Wow - that's a lot of food!
sides all sounded so good but we picked brown sugar bbq chips first and these were pretty typical saratoga chips ala Montgomery Inn.
I think you can still buy this Groupon deal - and I have to say - for $22 - it's a great deal. We easily could have shared that among four people. Be sure to read it closely - you HAVE to make a reservation to use it.
Why Should You Go? Well - I have to say - I have a mixed review. I think I've found I'm just not a huge bbq fan. I think the quality at smoQ was good but dry in spots - I just don't love it. I liked parts of it but didn't LOVE the overall experience. The staff was really friendly - which is always nice. Overall - I really liked parts (corn muffins, salad and sausage) but was just meh about the rest of the items.
