Smoke BBQ in the cross street market

Well where do I begin???
The food is fair at best and the atmosphere is next to embarassing!!! Besides having grease soaked rags in plain view of everyone on the floor, this lady looks like she is stocking dirty dishes in her booth rather then good old BBQ. Lets give credit to the smoker which is about the only worth while thing in her kitchen. Everything tastes like dry bark!!! I asked what kind of wood she used and she wasn't sure, but I saw some stock piled next to a 5 gallon bucket of fat drippings near the smoker. No one should have to eat and stare at 20 lbs of liquid fat. After the nasty meal and the very annoying quote..."You guys look like you need some BBQ...he he he" I was ready to leave the booth, the food, and most of all the unpleasant lady that I guess is just there to take up space. I would recommend the hush puppies, but then again thats only corn meal and water. Make some at your house and you won't have to worry about the gallons of water you'll need to drink to wash this garbage down.
I would give Smoke BBQ two big thumbs down!
