Customer Reviews

  • This is a super cute restaurant in a small little town. When you are traveling from Liberal to Pratt (150 miles) there are NO restaurants. If you are heading through Meade and want to taste something new and refreshing stop in at the Smoke Hoss.

  • I am a tea fanatic and I LOVE the tea here. It's a cute place and I'm happy to see more variety in Meade! I can't wait to eat there again! Also, I love beef jerky, so next time I'm there.. I will have to try it!

  • I love the variety of flavors available on the menu. The sandwiches are tasty, attractive, and affordable. Nice to have a quality place to eat close to home. Half-priced drinks from 2-4 is great!

  • Smoke Hoss has a wonderful variety of gourmet sandwiches, including gluten free options, which is important to me. Their jerky is unbelievably addictive! Wish I lived closer, I'd be there all the time. OH, I almost forgot to mention my favorite part, the coffee! The have an extensive selection of flavors, including holiday favorites, that can be made any way you like it, iced, blended or hot! Surely puts Starbucks to shame!

  • Great menu selection for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Not a lot of options for a place to eat in Meade, so Smoke Hoss is my go-to. The restaurant/bistro offers a nice sit-down atmosphere and good prices for a relaxing lunch in the middle a busy day. I usually get some jerky for an afternoon snack :)

  • Today was my first time driving through Meade, KS on my way to Liberal, KS. I saw a sign that said SMOKEhoss! As a, let's say "BBQ Professional". I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered a brisket sandwich with "NO SAUCE" (I always let the meat do the talking) It didn't have the heavy smoke flavor from liquid smoke that I expect from other sites of its size. It was properly prepared and the pieces melted in my mouth. Here's the surprise, "THE BUN" i'm not sure where they get it (or if they make it in house) but I'd be tempted to return tomorrow (out of my way by an hour) just to order two different sandwiches with "THE BUN"! If I do get a chance to go back i'll try the two versions of sauce and let you all know. Thank you Mrs. Doney for a pleasant surprise!

  • Great! We stopped there driving from Iowa to Arizona. The beef brisket and pulled pork were delicious! Definitely worth visiting. Fun decor and atmosphere as well!

  • I'm a trucker, I drive through Meade almost every week. The food here is excellent. The meat must be locally procured it's the most flavorful meat I've ever had. I'd eat here every week if it weren't for my co-driver, who prefers Mexican food. Smoke Hoss is truly one of my all time favorites.

  • I have been to Smoke Hoss many times and there is no better place to eat in Southwest Kansas. The workers are pleasant, the food is great, and you can't beat the prices. It fits any type of traveler's need, from truck drivers wanting a quick meal to families looking to sit down and rest for a while. I give Smoke Hoss my best grades!

  • I am loving the Ruben Wrap right now which makes it hard to go back to all the other stuff I love. Great, friendly service. A lot of food for what you pay. A great place for a family to eat. The lattes are delicious.

  • The food is great! I really like the jalapeno wraps. The breakfast burritos are wonderful as well as being a good deal. The smoothies are great also.

  • My favorite is the #1 Hoss California Turkey with a Spinach & Herb wrap....soo yummy. The breakfast burritos are huge and also delicious!!

  • Best BBQ in USA - I had JR and Christi cater the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding. They were so helpful and very competitive in their pricing for such a catered event. They offer BBQ of several kinds of meat at several homemade BBQ sauces. I used to work in a BBQ restaurant and have had BBQ from across the South... I know a thing or two about BBQ. This was tops. Their Brisket was the best, most tender and juicy I have had. If you are in Southwest Kansas, you won't want to miss this place.

  • Great BBQ - I almost passed this place by because it looks unpromising from the outside. Inside are a few Formica tables and kitchen chairs. But the food-- wow! I had ribs. Perfectly smoked, meat falling off the bone, juicy and full of flavor. I've never seen so much meat on pork ribs. The pork is local, the staff friendly, the cole slaw excellent. A gem in the middle of nowhere.

  • Great tasting pork BBQ sandwiches. Would eat there again!
    Danny U

  • Clean. Simple. Good pulled pork and beef brisket. - Would definitely eat here Good pulled pork and beef brisket.

  • Without a doubt the best BBQ in Southwest Kansas!! I will be looking for excuses to travel to Meade so I can swing by Smoke Hoss. The meat was delicious; tender, juicy, and flavorable. The price is a steal for what you're getting! It was an inviting atmosphere, with friendly service that appeared very natural. Highly recommended!!

  • Best ribs and service ever!

  • Best BBQ in the USA. I have been throughout the South and found this to be the most tender flavorful BBQ with three different BBQ Sauces that are so good. They did a great job catering for my son's wedding.

  • My family and I loved Smoke Hoss! It was a pleasant surprise to find this sort of well-executed, fresh and creative cuisine in such a small town. We felt like we had the undivided attention of the owners the entire time we were there. Good meat. Good coffee. Good value. What more can I say?
    Beth B.

  • Super good eat'n.

  • We have eaten there twice and the food has been so good. I was able to talk to the owner she was very friendly and open to suggestions and ideas from a total stranger. She made us feel like we have been friends forever...

  • The pulled pork sandwich is delicious and the meal deal has plenty of food to fill me up! Considering how much food you get the prices are great! The atmosphere was very friendly and a nice place to go when you just want to relax and enjoy a meal. I live in Texas and play basketball at K-State so EVERY TIME I drive home I stop here (my parents are even hooked!) I highly recommend this place to everyone!
    Ashlynn K.
