New in Scottsdale: Smok'n Joe's Roadhouse

Categories: Laudig

Last night marked the launch of a new South Scottsdale hangout called Smok'n Joe's Roadhouse, which took over the space that used to house Mardi Gras (8040 E. McDowell Rd.). The concept started in Canada and is just breaking into the Arizona market.

Although a menu isn't available yet, one of my food spies tells me the food is all-American and sized for huge appetites, such as a triple-decker BLT on Texas toast.

Along with eats and a full bar, there will also be live music starting tonight, with no cover charge.

Business hours are 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday and Sunday.

I use to work their. Really ppl its a horrible place. the owner is a snotty nose prick from Canada that didn't want to pay his employees. Some of us are still waiting for checks. Foods disgusting, & ill tell u right now they'll give u whatever they have in their walk-in expired or not. They'd make us work countless hours with no breaks and tried to screw us with no days off. The kitchen is unbearable, they never clean their soda dispenser nozzles so if your drink taste a lil bizzare thats the reasoning. It's a horrible establishment & as I said WE'RE STILL WAITING ON CHECKS!!!

Tried Smokin Joe's yesterday.  Very disappointing.  The place looks great, but food was blah.  Slaw was spoiled.  Pulled pork on a "barbie play-house bun" , tastes like it came out of a can.Maybe just a bad day.  I'll give it another try.Also, no one in the place except the bartender.  She talked WAY too much, and told us how she was hung over and didn't feel like cleaning the bathrooms from the night before.

We have eaten here 5 or 6 times now after work. Everything has been fantastic. The BLT is HUGE! The Ribs, Philly Sandwich, Fish and Chips, Wings, Sweet Potato Fries - everything is great. You need to check this place out. And Ladies - the Bathroom is awesome!

Been a big fan since the place opened... BUT today went there for 20 cent wings. My friend and I waited 45 minutes after ordering 24 wings, and eventually walked out. I normally have more patience but I overheard a waitress say ( to a customer that came in at least 15 minutes after us) that the wings she was giving him came from another waitresses table!

Amazing what has been done to the bar! It is going to be a great place for live music with lots of room. Food was very good and reasonably priced!! Also GREAT place to watch sports- TVs all over in the bar area...This should be a winner!

Had lunch there on Thursday. Ordered the Roadhouse Burger with fries and slaw. It was really good. Since it was the first day they were opened there was a little confusion, but the food was great, the value for the money was great, and the staff was very nice.

I am in the same boat as you.I heard there is about 35 employees that did not get paid.I worked over 15 hours a day,6 days a week.So i feel your pain.Dean Vandal was a con artist,probably was money laundrying with his wife.
