About

The Smoky Boys concept is all about great meat and big flavours. To create our dishes, we only use premium cuts of beef to gourmet grills and the best British lamb or chicken that we can find.

We take simple ingredients and make them seriously tasty. Our food will be served in a friendly, trendy and relaxed atmosphere. As a promise to you, Smoky Boys will only use the freshest and the best meat, which is then hand-cooked on our grill, just how you like it!

Diners who come to Smoky Boys can expect to see an array of gourmet burgers, such as Smoky BBQ burger and Smoky Beast burger on the menu. We will also be serving dishes such as steaks and hot dogs, with a selection of shakes and fresh fruit cocktails and sweet treats on the menu too.

We are excited to use our knowledge and experience of the London burger scene to bring something new and different to Watford.

Smoky Boys looks forward to welcoming you to our Watford restaurant!

Tasty food, but lacking atmosphere. The ribs were not on. That was the reason I went. I don't think I will rush back

Good food, small error in my order but they were willing to replace the meal with another, free of charge. Staff were very hospitable and friendly and the booking was quick and easy. The waiting time was longer than expected, but it was worth it.

They were cleaning using bleach while we were having our meal. Also hurrying us along because they wanted to close

Whilst the food is excellent here, the service has been greatly lacking during the last few visits. Our waiter had to be swapped (not at our request) as the previous waiter was unable to use the tablet device they use for taking orders. We had to go through our order 3 times as errors were made, incorrect drinks were delivered, plates were not given with starters, bill had to be requested 3 times and then waited 10 minutes for someone to come over with the credit card machine.

Whilst the food is fantastic, the annoying service experience leave a sour taste.

Food was lovely and cooked well very tasty only recommendation would be to serve alcohol beverages as they only sold none alcoholic beverages
I did however ask for sweet potatoe fries to go with the ribs and they could not do this as the sweet potato fries were more in cost if they had asked me I would of payed the difference
The staff were lovely and friendly would definitely eat hear again
The burgers were good only Recomendation would be to offer more healthy options in the burgers instead of just cheese in them and fired onions as I enjoy grilled chicken with salad in a bun

A hidden gem. Good for Burgers and bbq. A mix of US and a hint of south Asian influence in some of the sauces which works well. I can recommend the beef ribs for a meat lover!

Good restaurant, food was worth the price and tasted good! However, eventhough we booked a table they had over-booked the restaurant so we were standing around for 15/20 mins eventhough we arrived on time.

The staff are great and friendly and very tollerant of children who eat for free on a sunday...
I would say that the patty/burger could be a little thinner and wider and my smoky melt could have been a little less oozy... it was great just a very messy. It was all great, the greatest was the incredibal lemon and tyme chicken.

Great Place, just a bit over priced. the staff were excellent but they are a little tight on space there. if you go with one person extra than what you had booked they might just turn you down.

Great food and staff, restaurant is quite small and may be worth noting they don't serve alcohol. Would definitely go back and would recommend the beef ribs!

What a find, so happy we left making New Year's Eve plan until the last minute. The food was freshly made to order. The staff were polite, helpful and pleased to greet us despite the restaurant being full and very busy, I was lucky to be able to book the last available table on the OpenTable app only a few hours before we arrived. We have driven past this restaurant many times and always said that we should try, we were not disappointed, Great place to go for an easy meal, not Paasch not fancy just good food at a reasonable price and will definitely visit again. It makes a change to visit an establishments were the all the staff is appreciative to serve you with a smile on there face.

The burger itself was great...tasty and good toppings. The side order of coleslaw was absolutely miniscule and not good value- remember coleslaw costs virtually nothing to make and this came across as mean. Side orders of fries were similarly a little tight fisted and when you are paying £30.00 for two burgers, two fries and two cokes as well as the teeny tiny post of coleslaw well it had better be generous in size and knock me out of the park. I enjoyed it but would I rush back? not at these prices no.

To be fair, the food wasn’t bad the last time I went, but I’ve received an email from them today featuring a desperate promotion in which they encourage you to try to eat a 120 ounce(!) beef patty, 6 grilled super-hot chilli wings or 50 dynamite wings within set times to win a prize, or pay for the meal if the attempt fails. I don’t want to be sat in the same restaurant as any idiot trying this, they are either going to stuff their face with enough food to cause a heart-attack (you even have to sign a disclaimer to take part), or waste a lot of food. It’s obscene and idiotic, shame on you Smoky Boys.
