They prepare the food with no passion at all. The Thai Squid salat sounded so interesting, but what we got was loveless slices onion with squid. Nothing Thai about it. Chicken wings soaking with oil, BBQ sauce so smokey: tasting like licking an ashtray. On...More

My wife and I really enjoy the food and service whenever we visit Smokey Joe's. The quality and service is above and beyond. We love Mexican and American style grill, so it is the best place for us to celebrate special occasions.

I first visited Smokey Joe's in Kenting the year before, so I thought I would try the Kaohsiung restaurant, The food and service was good, just like Kenting's restaurant. The neatest part was the decor, with the large wall art and statues.
