The BBQ smells really good, but then I guess all BBQ smells really good. I was there to check out the beer selection and not the food since I had just stuffed myself with Chinese food earlier. When you enter there is a divider of sorts separeating the restaurant from the entrance. Behind that on the left is the bar and on the right are some tables. They had a couple of Golden Road beers that I hadnít tried before. They seem to focus on local beers which is nice. Iíll be checking back in here every time Iím near the circle, which isnít that often these days. The service was friendly (didnít check for beer knowledge but itís unnecessary since they tell you exactly whatís on tap), the prices on beer are reasonable, and the place is quiet and cozy. As always driving and parking around that area can be a pain.

My wife & I went to the traffic circle in Orange on a Sunday to walk around and have some breakfast. We stopped at Smoqued for a late breakfast, and some brews. Their breakfast burrito and their scramble were both very good w/ smoked brisket in them. The pints of Stone Espress RIS & Alesmith Brown were very good too. If youíre in the area of the circle, itís a good place to hit up.

Pretty decent BBQ place in Old Town Orange. Had some pulled pork which was okay and their mac and cheese, which was a bit spicy (kind of liked that). Prices are a bit on the high side, unfortunately. Decent selection of beers, everything from California. A few Alesmith offerings, some local stuff like Noble, Eagle Rock, and Smog City, and few other nice beers to round out the list. A lot of IPAs. Service was quick and pretty friendly. Okay if you really want some BBQ, but not the best out there.
