Grilling and Smoking Means Big Flavor at Smokey Bones by Jesse Bluma at Pointe Viven

Grilling and Smoking Means Big Flavor at Smokey Bones

You know the story, the State of Georgia and the South means grilling and smoking meats.  Peachtree City, Georgia is located south of the famed city of Atlanta, home to golf courses, Point University, and has served as a filming location for The Walking Dead.  Smokey Bones is a large casual dining restaurant that features pulled pork, slow smoked meats, and an ample size bar.

“At Smokey Bones, we specialize in three things: good food, good drinks, and good times.  We are grill masters who respect the power of the open flame.  We like simple, yet flavorful recipes and believe marinating is not to be taken lightly.  We know medium-rare isn’t the only way to cook a steak, but believe it should be.  We are big fans of sports, loud music, and surprises. And we believe in laughing often, especially at ourselves.”

Reserve a table in the dining room to enjoy table service.  Or pull up to the bar to enjoy sports on the big screen televisions, good eats, and drinks.  In addition to the menu items of skillet cornbread, smoked wings, and a variety of sweet and spicy sauces, Smokey Bones offers a large selection of beer, wine, and cocktails

Peachtree City, Georgia is a locale with great culture, community, and with rich history.  Fayette County originated with the Creek people and was named after Marquis de Lafayette, an officer to George Washington during the American Revolution.  Smokey Bones is a creation of Darden Restaurants in an effort to enter the bar-be-que and sports bar market.  After success of the first location in Orlando, Florida, Darden expanded to Peachtree City and other locations throughout the United States. 

My Recommendations

1.  The restaurant is located at 100 Market Place Boulevard Peachtree City, Georgia 30269.  This is a drivable distance from nearby golf courses, amphitheater, lakes, and the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

2.  Peak times occur during week days and nights, especially weekend nights and during special events in the city.  Make reservations to ensure a table. 

3.  The menu at Smokey Bones has an array of choices with dishes featuring natural cut fries, fresh steamed broccoli, and dirty rice (Cajun or Creole style prepared with chicken, celery, onion, and cayenne pepper).  The following were my favorites.

Create Your Own Combo

Hand-Pulled Pork:  This pile of premium pork packs a punch.  House smoked nine hours, hand pulled, seasoned with salt and pepper, served with garlic bread.  Pow.  (*The potions are large, so ask for the garlic bread to be left off the plate.)

*Order two portions of broccoli for the sides.


Baby Back Ribs:  These award-winning baby backs are superstars of the smoker.  Smoked four hours, fire grilled to order, brushed with a sweet BBQ glaze, served with garlic bread.  Lights.  Camera.  Eat these.  (*The potions are large, so ask for the garlic bread to be left off the plate.)

*Order two portions of broccoli for the sides.
