Foursquare Tips

  • This Castleberry Hill spot opened late this Fall and is already a contender for some of the city's top barbecue. Go for ribs, brisket, jalapeno cornbread, and cocktails like the boiled peanut martini.
  • Love love love trying all the Vodka drinks :)
  • Try the wings and the eggs!!
  • First time having BBQ where the smoked flavor is SO good that I don't want ANY sauce on it! Pork belly and creamed corned is amazing!
  • Excellent pulled pork sandwich and the brisket melts in your mouth! Very cool atmosphere to grab a bite or a beer!
  • Brisket burrito!!! Yummmm!!
  • Have You Ever Had a Boiled-Peanut Martini Surrounding by Finger Licking Good Serious BBQ on Saturday Night? Smoke Ring is here soft-open this Saturday in Castleberry Hill.
  • Small touches like Edison bulbs, barstools and chairs with a hint of steampunk, Mason jars, and bits of moonshine machinery fill out the sprawling place.
  • The fried pickles were yummy :)
  • The name implies a smoking lounge, but it is actually a pretty good barbecue joint within walking distance of the office.
  • Wow! This place is my new favorite BBQ place! You have to try the mac-n-cheese!!
  • Good start for a tasty local pub. Mini ahi taco, fried green tomato, and teriyaki infused fried ribs go well with beer.
  • Try the Show Stopper--delicious! The staff is really great as well.
  • Jordan is the chef and makes a mean pulled pork sammich!!
  • Great BBQ.
  • Ok, you have to try the smoked wings! No, seriously! These wings are like "CHANGE YOUR LIFE" kind of good..."SLAP YO MAMA" kind of good and don't fool around and have a Shiner Bock with them! Daum!
  • Everything is good.
  • BBQ is good. Desserts are good.
  • Good BBQ and large portions.
  • Potato salad side was actually really good. Also recommend the pig sty nachos. Whoa! Try the tea cocktail too - it was a crowd pleaser!
