The Food

When we looked at the menu, we were overwhelmed as we wanted to try it all! Nachos are our favourite so we started with those, deliciously cheesy and the guacamole was divine. It was nice how it was laid out, instead of covering everything with cheese, sour cream and guacamole they were placed on the sides so you pick what you wanted to dip your nacho in. However, we did think that the Nachos would come first as a starter, but they came with all our other food.

After careful consideration, we opted for the burger and had a mix of wings and strips so we could share! The smoky bacon burger was amazing, I’m a huge burger fan and this definitely lived up to my standards! I say the messier the burger the better. I ordered the cheesy fries and they weren’t the greatest I prefer lots of cheese, but there wasn’t much so it dried out, nonetheless they were still edible! We got the wings in the jerk flavour and strips in the lemon and thyme flavour, again, they were delicious the strips were our favourite so flavoursome and the jerk was delicious. To accompany the chicken we ordered the sweet potato fries, which we actually preferred to the normal fries.

We ordered the Smoky Boy shakes in Oreo and Salted Caramel and WOW! The milkshake was so thick we couldn’t drink it through the straw until it melted a bit! The definition of a perfect milkshake!

As you can imagine, after all of the food we were extremely full!

The Atmosphere

Being located in Boxpark Wembley the atmosphere on an evening/weekend is buzzing and lively as they usually have events on so it does get busy! However, we visited on a weekday lunchtime and it was a perfect atmosphere, quiet and not overcrowded. If ever you are in the Wembley area I highly recommend popping into Boxpark for lunch!


If ever you are in the Wembley area and looking for something to eat, we highly recommend going to Smoky Boys. If you like an open, lively atmosphere then this will be a place to try, it would be perfect for a big group meal as there is plenty of seating! They have extremely good customer service, the value for money and quality of food is brilliant.

I would note if you are looking for a ‘dine in restaurant’ meal, then Smoky Boys Boxpark may not be for you, but they do have other branches that are dine in restaurants that we will definitely be looking to visit soon!

Thank you to Smoky Boys for inviting us down.
