We received a gift certificate and I ordered the "fabulous" rib dinner and my husband ordered Chicken Parmesean. The waitress was going off duty and advised us another would be taking her place. Took forever to get the food to our table. The ribs were burned, tasteless and tough! The sweet potatoe fries were good and the chicken parmesean was good. VERY DISAPPOINTED regarding ribs and length of time it took to get our meal as well as lack of attention from waitress. Sorry but we won't be going back again. What a shame! It used to be a very good restaurant.

Went to Alexander the great on February 11, 2011 foe the first time. Chose the restaurant based on the reviews from this site. Truly dissappointed ordered the Ribs for two and purchased three shrimp ala carte. Ribs were tough not fall off the bone. Not mine or companions taste for Barbaque ribs eiither no smoked taste and just an average sauce. Shrimp were breaded frozen from the box butterfly shrimp no need to say more about that other than will not be back. Smokey's in Westland far better choice or even Famous Dave's.

I could smell the rotten food as I stepped into the storefront to pickup my phone order. The lobby and counters were covered in a sheen of grease and dust. The side dishes in the glass front cooler were visibly bad. I paid and left after the Owner/Co ...

My wife and I have been to Smokey's of Westland quite a few times. We have yet to find a dinner we did not enjoy. There ribs are the best ribs I have ever had in my life, better than Famous Daves. The fish dinners are out of this world

I have been eating at this restaurant since I was a child, and now bring my own kids. The food is still top quality, the ribs are amazing and I buy the bbq sauce to use at home and put it on everything. The atmosphere is family friendly, clean and inviting. I travel over 40 minutes to dine here at least 3 to 4 times a month.

The food here is great, the ribs are always cooked just right with the perfect amount of their homemade bbq sauce on them. The waitstaff is always very friendly here and they listen to your wants and needs. Also they have great low prices.

Had dinner there last night and enjoyed a wonderful night. The Ribs were excellent, the way REAL barbecue is done!! Everything was great, the food, service, and ambience of the dinning room, and the holiday decorations were exquisite. Enjoy Real Food at Alexander the Great!!!! (you can tell it is homemade!! not like that frozen microwaved stuff at those chain restaurants)

I have been going to this restaurant since I was born, the service has always been amazing; ask for a women named Alex for your waitress and your have the best service. My family and I still travel over and hour to get dinner there, mostly around the holiday seasons. But you can not beat the mastaochoii or their French onion soup!

This place has been here forever, and it is still the same excellent quality that I remember. I have always had excellent service, the portions are huge, and food is fresh and has a great value. I bring my 2 year old, and they are always kid friendly - have a variety on kid menu. Maybe previous reviewers were having an off night. Not typical.
