Can anyone recommend a meat restaurant that is not overpriced, nice ambiance. Willing to spend about $200 for 2, rather than $500. What is my best bet?

Went to Smokey Hill. Good and tasty smoked meat without much creative on the menu. Quick service nice place would go back. More in the league of Entrée than Estreia. Total bill 185 of which about 80 was for a long bone rib. They gave complementary lineage cabernet and Moscato. The sauce for pulled beef and chicken was on the spicy side so that will depend on your taste.

Does it make sense to go to Smokey hill if I really really dislike Smokey taste in my food? Does the menu have regular steaks and other items? And does the place stink like smoke?

Thanks

Every year people ask about it, and every year people say it's a great idea. Apparently the finances just don't make sense.

They have 14 Google Reviews so I would guess they are open. You can also call and ask.
