Smoqued BBQ Fries

What can we boyfriend and I absolutely love this place. In the past 4 days, We've visited Smoqued 3 times. We can't get enough of the BBQ fries substituting the fries for Tater Tots and the pulled pork for the Brisket! We consider ourselves to be a Tater Tot connoisseur and these are by far the best we've ever had! The Burnt Ends and Avocado fries put a great finish to our dining experience! We are looking forward to the Holiday gift donation in hopes of making it into the Mug Club! Wish us luck!

1/2 Chicken Plate

I LOVE the 1/2 chicken plate! Most BBQ chicken can be somewhat dry- NOT SMOQUED! So tender and nice smoke flavor! Teams up great with a side of green beans and bacon! BEST! Don't forget burnt ends! They are my favorite menu item! Salad you want? The Cobb salad is the best!!!!!

Mac & Cheese Shepherd's

My favorite dish here. I have had this dish at least 5 times. It combines the best side dishes at Smoqued and really tasty meat. I always put extra of the hot bbq sauce on it (not because it needs more sauce but because the sauce is that good!)

Burnt Ends

Crave these on the regular. Best bbq dish I've ever had. Crispy burnt ends of the most delicious pork. 420'mac is also to die for. 100% come try the burnt ends though!!

We love smoqued! My husband always craves good bbq and I'm a vegetarian so you'd think this wouldn't be a good common ground but smoqued is amazing for anyone - I got the taterquilles and literally had dreams about it later. 🤤 Great sauces, beer, bbq, sides... you guys have it all!

Candied Bacon

I couldn't pick just one! Candied bacon & avocado fries are both excellent. Other places try & fail, in comparison. Smoqued is consistency delicious & just writing this has convinced me that this is what's for dinner tonight! Yummm 😋

Mac & Cheese Shepherd's

There are really no words in the English language to describe how perfect this dish is. In fact, I've been coming to this establishment since 2014/2015 to eat this exact dish. I've already told multiple family members that this is to be my last meal. The meat to cheese to pasta ratio is unbelievable. The meat is perfect every time. I've brought almost every date to eat here because it's that good. I've had almost everything on the menu but this will always be my favorite.

Best brisket you can find in So Cal! It can be so difficult to find good BBQ, but Smoqued satisfies all cravings for classic BBQ. Every menu item our family has tried has been fantastic, you can't go wrong with Smoqued!

Smoqued BBQ Fries

Another legendary dish from these meat cooking legends! When you are here, this is a must have! The fries are super tasty, especially smothered in their bomb cheese sauce! The meat is always tender and flavorful and the jalapenos vary in degree but are always fresh and add an extra zing to the dish! You can choose to smother these in one of Smoqueds amazing bbq sauces, or have them as is; either way your taste buds will thank you!
