Last night marked the launch of a new South Scottsdale hangout called Smok'n Joe's Roadhouse, which took over the space that used to house Mardi Gras (8040 E. McDowell Rd.). The concept started in Canada and is just breaking into the Arizona market.
Although a menu isn't available yet, one of my food spies tells me the food is all-American and sized for huge appetites, such as a triple-decker BLT on Texas toast.
Along with eats and a full bar, there will also be live music starting tonight, with no cover charge.
Business hours are 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday and Sunday.
