VANCOUVER’S PLACE FOR

TEXAS-STYLE BARBEQUE,

COCKTAIL BAR AND CATERING

The Smokin’ Oak is a full service, Texas-style barbeque restaurant & bar with roots in Austin and Tyler, Texas.  We specialize in high quality smoked meats, craft cocktails, beers and wines.  We smoke all of our meats outside (along with other creative menu items) using the old method of burning oak wood in our custom built, 22 foot offset barrel smoker.  No charcoal, no gas, no electric, no shortcuts are used.  Just the clean smoke from fully combusting Oregon White Oak.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYIN’

“Amazing food amazing staff amazing place comfy cozy and just touches your heart it's so cute. I enjoyed everything about the place! Support local. Go enjoy best on the west BBQ! So so good!”

Randi Luepke

“The ribs were the best, remarkable really, awesome flavor and fall apart tender. All the meats were of excellent quality. The sausage had a nice consistent texture with a savory, smokey flavor. Their pulled pork was flavorful and melt-in-your-mouth but had a fair amount of fat chunks.”

Dean Montgomery

“The food was great. I loved the meats and the sauces. It is some of the best BBQ you will find in the northwest. The pitmaster has some skills.”

Alan Davison

“This place was amazing. I have never had BBQ that didn't need some sort of sauce to add something to it. Absolutely no need. We ate the whole "smoke stack" and never even thought about sauce. We will be back!!!”

Tina hanson

“The Smokin Oak has the best barbecue in the northwest! The meat was juicy and tender and not too smokey. It was a perfect balance. The beer selection is great. The only problem is that there was nowhere for me to lay when I had a food coma.”
