I Matter Discounts: Smokey Barque

Located in the heart of historic downtown Frankfort at 20 Kansas Street, Smokey Barque has something on their menu for all tastes, even your dog!  This locally acclaimed barbecue style restaurant has been in Frankfort since 2011.

Owner, Tommy Ridings, began exploring his love of barbecue in his own backyard, catering for friends and families with his own home-made barbecue sauces.  It became an undeniable passion of his. His dream became a reality when the location on Kansas Street, formerly Jenny’s, became available. After a whirlwind negotiation, 20 Kansas Street was where his dreams would soon come true.

“People love this building and have fallen in love with this location, and they are willing to give us a chance,” said Mary Ann Riding, Tommy’s wife.  The patio just outside the restaurant faces the famous Breidert Green where music festivals, famers markets and fun summer gatherings are held almost every weekend during the warm summer months.

The famed staples of Smokey Barque are their ribs, burnt ends and brisket accompanied by at least 4 barbecue sauces to sample. Their Sweet Potato fries with Marshmallow dipping sauce is out of this world and their fried pickle appetizer is a tasty treat worth trying.  Smokey Barque is dog friendly on the patio, even offering a “Bark” Menu!

Smokey Barque is a must-try, local favorite and also an I Matter partner, offering at least 5% off your meals once you show your membership card.  Members receive their discount card when they come to Silver Cross for their annual mammogram, heart screening and/or Dexa Scan.  If you are not a member, sign up for this free program online today.  I Matter is simply Silver Cross Hospital’s way to reward you for taking care of yourself!
