The brisket was pulverized and smothered in sweet BBQ sauce.

This place does not mess around with their barbecue!!! I got the brisket platter and it did not disappoint, I even grabbed a bottle of their multiple award winning BBQ sauce,. I can not wait to use it on my own brisket. Check this place out,I passed it up twice before I finally stopped in and I am a better person after my experience!

My bud living out of town, got his dream job in Alaska. He drove 5hrs down to WI where he had a DAY to say good bye to family/friends. He called in ahead and picked it up a tons of food from here. This place was his FIRST stop. He THEN came to visit us, insisting we all taste this BBQ as it was the main reason for the drive.This food is good. They know their BBQ. I'm picky with potato salad too, I annihilated it. The meat is tender, not rough or dry. The BBQ sauce is good flavor over spice. My bud is now in Alaska but I like to think this place and their food got him prepared to adventure in the wilderness. Thank you Smoky Jon's!

I had the Smoked chopped pork sandwich platter on my first visit. The pork was what you would expect from a place like this, smokey, tender and full of flavor. For my sides I chose their creamy coleslaw and golden fries. The coleslaw was fantastic by itself but the real move is putting it on your sandwich and then slathering it in their amazingly tangy bbq sauce that you get a warm side of. Their sauce is glorious on the fries as well so get an extra cup or you might as well buy a whole bottle to take home since you have that option. I will return.

Still the best BBQ on the Northside! Don't believe the hype about that other BBQ place....Food is tasty and the portions are generous for the price point. Staff is friendly and responsive.

Smokey Jon’s is truly the best BBQ I’ve ever had. We have been loyal customers for 30 years or so. The smoky tender meat falls off the bone and the sauce is sweet and spicy. You can pick up their sauce in store or at Hy-Vee Grocery. Great on everything!!

I had the beef brisket Sandwich... It was good...the fries were excellent... Big steak fries perfectly done to a nice golden brown ... The baked beens were very good...smokey with a little spicy kick...the brisket was chopped/pulled very fine...a little too mushy...I tend to like mine a little more course...I tasted the brisket before adding sauce...it was a little light on smoke flavor...I was hoping for something a little more bold... But the house BBQ sauce was great and made up for the lack of smoke...I will definitely go back... But next time I'll try the brisket dinner and have it slabbed instead of chopped/pulled...I think I'll like that better...all in all the dinner was good and worth going back!

You only get one type of sauce, but that sauce was the only one you need.

The food can be better but the people and the atmosphere is good

These ribs #1 and their staff never fails to make me laugh! Bring back the t-shirts, I want one so bad.

Smokey Jon's is a Madison institution. Friendly staff, easy going homey atmosphere, and unbelievably good BBQ. You can't go wrong with ribs or brisket but anything you order will be delicious, free refills on soda if you buy a dinner. For sides the beans are out of this world, but the corn... oh the corn! Wear strechy pants, and have someone else drive, its on!

good sauce, the meat was amazing, the sides were a little on the small side and left some to be desired, but good experience all around! Also the server behind the counter was pretty cool!

Have been here with family twice now. Both times, the service was awesome and the food stellar. Smoky Jon's is the first BBQ place my family has genuinly enjoyed north of NC (and that says a lot). Would definitely recommend giving it a try, as its now our favorite spot in Madison🙂

Smoky Jon's is definitely on my recommended must visit list. The sweet and tangy bbq sauce is delicious! We had the half slab of ribs with sides. The food was filling and well seasoned.

Very good midwestern/KC style bbq with a slightly sweet, spicy, tangy sauce. I had the half rack dinner plate, fries and slaw. Best BBQ I've had north of Omaha!

Always a generous amount of food! The bones falling right out and the barbecue sauce has great flavor! The baked beans also have great flavor and are barbecue baked beans. They also play great blues music in the background
