Though it's just another chain restaurant with a rather cold corporate feel, Smokey Bones in Plantation remains remarkably successful. There's always someone young and perky at the front door; it feels family-friendly and festive inside; and they're quick 'n easy with the coupons and specials that make it cheap to eat and drink here. With all the down-home ambiance of an Applebee's, Smokey Bones only compensates if you like their 'cue, and that's such a subjective thing. For the most part, it's smoked just fine, but the sauce veers toward the sweet, almost candyish end of the spectrum. The sides are nothing compared to what you'd find at a ma-n-pa joint, but the pork and beef sandwiches are filling, and their ribs have made many a fan.
