Great place to eat and have a beer. Friendly service. Greenough with sweet potato fries is the best. Brisket, bacon, onions, peppers, and pepper jack cheese on toast. Mmm... Be sure to ask for free chips or biscuits!

Clean with an old cowboy feel. Good salad bar. I usually get the prime rib sandwich and it is good.

World Class BBQ
You won't find a better BBQ place. Moist and delicious, pork, turkey and beef. Also offers exotic meats and a salad bar with homemade soup.

Catch them on a cold Gillette night when Rick's green chili is on the soup bar — you'll love it. Great selection of beer on tap — including local & regional offerings that rotate throughout the year.

Amazing service and even better food. Ric even showed us the smoker and told us the process. I live in Billings Montana and I'll definitely make the trip to come see Ric and have some of his amazing BBQ!

Good place to eat. Friendly service. Not like the typical bbq joint you'll find in LA or TX, but still good.

Good service and good food
Stopped In for a quick lunch. Overall our service was excellent. Drinks and food delivered fast. The food was very tasty and a good value. We had a "non meat eater" with us who enjoyed his meal as well.

We love Pokey’s!
Pokeys is one of our favorite restaurants in Gillette. We can count on speedy and friendly service, and best of all the quality of food is always consistent. If you are adventurous try the “Tracy Nachos”. An odd combo of ingredients.... but it is delicious...More ... read more

Catered a wedding
The food was great. BUT, could you put the buns in a basket instead of leaving them in the plastic bags. (tacky) The $4.00 for a glass of boxed wine (not good) was not a good experience. No Coke, only Pepsi. Go to Walmart, but...More ... read more

We came for dinner and all got the 2 meat plate. There is sooo much food. You definitely get your money's worth. Our brisket was pretty fatty, but the flavor was good. I highly recommend this place.

If you enjoy smoked food you'll love Pokey's! Prime rib was cooked perfectly but the smoke flavor was too much for me. Excellent salad bar! I'd go back just for that!! Calamari was good, just a small serving.  Excellent service!

One of the best tasting BBQ's Ever!
There is little wonder why there are so many cars in the parking lot lunch or dinner. The brisket is amazing. That's what I would recommend.
