Good BBQ
After reading a couple of reviews on TripAdvisor, I was wondering whether we should try here or not, because I am VERY picky about BBQ. I usually cook 200-400 lbs for fundraisers three or four times a year, so the bar is very high for...More ... read more

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.

BEST BAR-B-Q IN TOWN
if you are looking for authentic barbeque, this is the place to go. Rick does all his own smoking. We have had him do some of our Alaska halibut and salmon. We eat it sparingly cause it's so good. highly recommend you eat here.

I was surprised to find "real" bbq in Gillette being that i am from the Southern part of the US where good bbq seems to be on every corner. Pokeys is the real deal with great smoke rings on their meat, good bbq sauce and excellent side dishes. My only complaint is that it's a little pricey but with no real competition in the area i g ... read more

Good food, good service, and reasonable. Accidentally found this place. Being from Texas we know BBQ. Of course Wyoming should have good BBQ also but you don't know till you try.
