Smokin' Joe's (South Side)

We haven't been to Smokin' Joe's in a while – not since we were a much smaller group. For those of you who aren't familiar, Joe's has been serving up a long list of some excellent beers for as long as I can remember. When I was in grad school, it was one of a small number of South Side Bars with a reasonable beer list. Thankfully, that number has steadily improved over the years, but Smokin' Joes has stuck around and kept up their tradition of pub food paired with some great beer.

details: Urbanspoon / Web Site / Menu

For those of you looking for specials, we'll be there for what Smokin' Joe's Calls "eFFFin' Thursdays." They're selling pints from Full Pint, Finches, and Founders for $2.95. Not a bad deal! For those who like their beer without alliteration, just go check out the draft list. Trust me, you'll find something.

Regardless of your beer preferences, come join us for a few pints. I'm sure we'll have a great time!

    Very good beer selection, and wing flavors. Table service slightly slow and sparce. Overall rating of B.

    Someone in the Group left behind their sunglasses on one of the tables we were occupying. We gave them to the waitress to hold onto, so the bar should have them if you want to retrieve them there.

    Last night was my maiden voyage with the group. I had a real nice time and met a lot of professional "pint tippers!" Special hats off to "Danny Boy!"

    Enjoyed meeting new people. Got a little warm at the back of the bar, but cold beer took care of that!

    I didn't sign up for this one because of my Ultimate Frisbee MeetUp game tonight. I might stop by late - like around 9 - if anyone happens to still be there.

      This will be my second time but for the first I just asked the waitress where the meetup group was.

      Most of us will probably be wearing nametags, which should help you spot the group. The last time we were there, they reserved the entire back section of the 1st floor for us, so that's probably a good place to start looking for us.
