There are about 70 locations of this Orlando-based chain, and it has diners lickin' their fingers. Smokey Bones seems to be gunning for the Ale House demographic: men who want to hang out with buddies, have a few drinks, watch the game, and, most of all, eat meat. With the culture of BBQ being competitive and finicky, diners either love Smokey Bones or hate it. Some BBQ fanatics say that Bones isn't authentic, while others hail it for doing a decent job of bringing 'cue to the masses. Menu standouts include sweet potato stix, hand-pulled pork, and baby back ribs. It's clear the bar is a big part of the biz -- they promote cheap Guinness and Jäger shots, plus concoctions like the Long Island Light Fluid (with four kinds of liquor) and Smojito (a mojito with Sprite). Events -- like a trivia night -- are kind of unusual for a chain and help differentiate it from a Chili's or an Outback.
