Wisconsin does more than dairy right, this place is ridiculously good. I had ribs, brisket, fries, and baked beans. All were super good and cooked to perfection.The ribs fell right off the bone. Brisket was tasty and moist, but not to the point of being greasy. Fries were good and crispy, and the dipping sauce they included was so good!If you are looking for a great bbq spot around Madison your search is over.

Hidden gem! It’s off the beaten path and may seem small, but this place is the real deal! I’d HIGHLY recommend the pulled pork shoulder dinner with Mac n cheese. I got the beef brisket, which was good, but tried my husbands pork and it was amazing! I also love that they generous apply BBQ sauce that looks homemade and is very flavorful! The potato salad was excellent as well. HIGHLY recommend!

The staff was VERY helpful and knowledgeable concerning my boyfriends Gluten allergy! They were genuinely concerned and made us both feel present and heard. My boyfriend will become very sick if he eat gluten. He didn’t get sick! Thank you all so much Smoky Jon! The food was DELICIOUS!!

Amazing, there's a reason for the awards.

Went here on a whim while driving through the area. The outside is unassuming but don’t let that deter you because you won’t regret it! The service was incredibly friendly and they brought out some real good bbq. Putting this on our recommendations list! 11/10 would come here again.

Long live Smoky Jon’s! That grill master they got back there has got some talent. Says he’s been doing it 23 years. That’s a national treasure if you ask me :)Best BBQ in Madison, possibly in Wisconsin. I haven’t traveled enough around here yet to know. The ribs are probably the best I’ve ever had.

Excellent BBQ awesome Pork Ribs and Chopped Brisket.
19:16 29 Apr 22
Some of the best BBQ around. They have a ton of awards and I can see why. The brisket was done to perfection. Tender and juicy the sauce was not to sweet or spicy. We will be back!

Had the 1/3 slab and brisket sandwich combo. It was fire. Can’t wait to come again

A little slice of magic on the northside. Been coming here all my life

This is the best barbecue in Madison, bar none. Why are you bothering with any place else? Sweet, tangy, spicy bbq sauce and tender meat smoked for hours and hours. No brew but I honestly didn't miss it, the meat and sauce were so good. Big portions, reasonable price, old-timey decor like a Texas roadhouse. Highly recommended.

Best sauce in the world!!

Really Really bbq spot. Very friendly staff.
00:11 07 Apr 22
Ribs were good, Mac n cheese was great. Will come back again.
12:55 05 Apr 22
Very good food. A little expensive but worth the money. Their BBQ sauce is also excellent 👌
21:01 04 Apr 22
Food was great!! Service was amazing!! Will definitely go back whenever I go back to that area.

Very pleased. For the amount of food given at the price listed on their menu, which as not changed since new ownership, you're getting an outstanding deal. I ordered mine as a tentative "to go" as I was meeting a friend after work but it was so delicious I could have finished off the (what I consider a large meal) in one sitting.Now I have to go explore the rest of the menu!

Probably the best bbq I've ever eaten 😌 The bbq sauce sweet but also spicy, delicious sandwiches and sides. Will be back :)

Family member likes coming here, ordered for me and I love it, so does my buddy. Sauce is perfect sweet, with a hint of spice. Brisket was juicy. Would bring the family here sometime. Hard to believe people hate it, but the truth is, everyone is different, like me and most americans, loving ketchup on fries, but my 20 year old daughter hates ketchup.

Hadn’t been to Smoky Jon’s in a few years, so happy we trekked in to the north side today. Staff was very friendly and helpful with ordering off the large menu. We had ribs and the shredded pork with sides….absolutely outstanding. Put together just right-no need to ask for more sauce and portions were perfect. Can’t say enough about the staff and the food. O and it smells awesome in this place. Didn’t try the brisket so maybe next time but it’s going to be hard to get off them ribs.RIP Jon.HIGHly recommend.

I was fortunate enough in 2014 to drive past Smoky Jon's on my way to work, it just so happens I have relatives that live near Madison where I was working out of town( I am from MN) at the time. My friend and I bought $100 worth of food... We went back the next day and spent even more!! Absolutely one of the best BBQ places in all of my travels anyways! The original barbecue sauce is absolutely AWESOME!! I literally put it on almost everything! I have just received my second case(12 bottles each) in two years lol!I would STRONGLY suggest you give Smoky Jon's a try if your in the Madison area!!
