California Tri-Tip Sandwich

The mac n cheese sauce makes the sandwich. Add some house BBQ on it and the sandwich becomes a "had it, loved it".

Avocado Fries

My family and I love having lunches to celebrations here. They have the best smoked meats, and their customer service is always top notch! We drive over an hour to come and dine!

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!)

Chili Con Queso

Very addicting!!! If you have a big group definitely order 2 of these bad boy, so freaking good!!!!

BBQ Beans

Quickly became my go-to side. Great balance of smokey and tangy. The beans still have some tooth to them...not mushy at all. Probably the best beans I've had outside of the South.

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.

Brisket Plate

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!
