Friendly, expert BBQ smokers. First time there wont be our last! Perfect food, great prices. Thx for making our Labor Day weekend great!

Friendly service, reasonable prices, but I thought the BBQ sauce was pretty tangy and the rib tips weren't very tender. They also didn't have brisket or many of the sides available for lunch when I ordered.

Wow this place is amazing!! I was in town visiting family and went here for lunch. I had the chicken tips and chicken wings and my husband had a deliciously huge burger!!! The food was so good with generous portions. You can’t beat the prices either. The service was great. Our server was friendly and on top of everything. The restaurant is the perfect size. It’s. It’s not too big where you feel anxious and overwhelmed. It was perfect. Music playing, patrons sitting at the bar. It felt like home. Familiar and friendly. “Where everybody knows your name” I’ll definitely be back next time I am in town!!!Parking: There is definitely enough parking!!!

The service was great. The food was OK. I ordered a half slab of ribs. They looked delicious and the portion was huge, but unfortunately I couldn't eat them. They were so tough. But our server Jasalyn was very sweet about me sending them back and bringing me something different. If like spicy food this is the place for you.

Very good food with service to go along with it. The young man running the register was nothing but respectful and serviceable. Wish you guys nothing but the best in this journey. All love

They catered a function for a tribute to my late mom this past weekend. The food was beyond excellent, and the customer service was exemplary. Every last one of my guests could not stop talking about how great the food was. The owner is one of the most professional people I've ever dealt with and the delivery service was great! They came a long distance to deliver and the food was still hot and totally fresh. The BEST restaurant in Michigan City, Indiana. The prices are amazing too! Thanks Janika!! You guys are awesome!!

I was remarkably impressed. First class, dedicated but welcoming ownership. Consistently delivered great food and they should charge double for that burger!! Woww!!Chicken Tips

Excellent rib tips and catfish. Sides were delicious. Good selection of beer. I like the idea of no smoking ?

This is the best BBQ...The rib tips, chicken tips and fried chicken are...slap your ma'ma good! Spaghetti and greenbeans are seasoned to perfection. I LOVE THIS PLACE! The staff are so nice and very helpful. I would give them 10 stars if I could. My husband used to get me food from here when they were at the other address, so glad they are even closer now.

Food: 4/5Service: 5/5Atmosphere: 3/5.I really enjoyed my experience at Up N Smoke! You can really taste the smoke with the ribs! I had rib tips, hot links, fries, Mac and Cheese, and red beans and rice. The beans were so good, cooked with meat. The atmosphere is great if you're into the bar scene. However, the restaurant was a bit dark. There was a little bit of a wait, but the service was pure and genuine. The hour drive from Michigan was well worth the food they are cooking in this restaurant!Parking: There is street parking outside the restaurant.

Fancy inside, white table clothes nice! Food was good, not what I expected but delicious, non the less. Service was kinda slow after placing order. I figured it would already be ready to serve. Sauce was spicy for me but my fiance loved it! Rib tips were more bone than meat and could have been alot more tender. Catfish was on point as well as the potato salad. I wish the Mac and cheese was more sharp cheddar tasting or had baked cheese on top but no. Still better than any bbq in Indiana I've tried so far. We'll be back to try other stuff.

Have had Up N Smoke several times. It has been consistently good! Can beat the price for huge portions. My favorite is the wing and tip combo. Chicken tips are awesome! I'll definitely be there again.
