No" it's not. All that's there is gambling. That place is chalked full of wise guys scamming you out of your cash.

Basically a gambling joint with 50 to 60 year old men sitting around reliving their youth munching on a hotdogs exchanging money and sipping on beer

Now the food at times can be semi-descent depending on the time of day and who prepares it.

Yes, but no self respecting woman will go in by herself, unless of course her (John) sends her in so she can fetch his lunch.

Don't forget West Washington Street does have a slight prostitution problem, or have you forgotten? "Hence the wise guys comment" *Duh*

Wink! Wink!

Is Mike the character they call Bear? If so then that geezer has been round since Moby Dick was a minnow. What's Mike like now 70 years old.

See that's what I was saying nothing, but old fat men sitting around eating and drinking like they're going to the electric chair trying to hustle others out of their cash.

Of course Mike (aka Bear) may need the money for his depends.

No stupid a$$, Mike is the owner. Bear retired 10 years ago so get your SH!t straight. You must be someone that was thrown out and not welcomed back in. Come in SH talking that SH!t and see how fast you exit.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want hookers and their Johns running in and out of my establishment either. Obviously it's not good for business and obviously you must pick them up from time to time.

Now just who in their friggen mind would believe that a run down dive like the Smokehouse that is right dab smack in the middle of crack city with prostitutes on both sides of ther street and inside the place would have the best food in Charleston? Nobody is going to believe that.

Not even Tom, Logan and Cindy are buying that. Bet 7 out of 10 people that walk into that bacteria trap are either packing heat or looking to buy some. The Smokehouse is nothing more than a place for prostitutes and people who mingle with prostitutes to hang out.

Low life low bidget con-artists who don't mind bad food and lousy waitress service frequent that grease pit.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but somebody asked and I answered. Avoid that place like you would the plague.

It's surprisingly clean and has decent food. I avoid the area like the plague, but if I have to go there, that's one of the only establishments I would go to.

I don't know how, but they manage to keep the riff-raff out. I'm sure it's not easy. They're about the last shred of hope on west washington. Show them your support of you're in the area and haven't been mugged or shot yet.

The Smokehouse is one of the few places one can sit and have a hotdog a cold beer and look out the window and watch a drive by all at the same time.

Yep you can't get that ambience anywhere else.

Absolutely the best response...cracked me up!!!! Lmfao, the bad part is that it's all true and don't forget that you can watch the prostitutes do business in that area as well, night/day it doesn't matter the time of day in that area for sh^t to happen.

You're so right about the prostitutes. Hell there's more used condoms laying on the ground in a two block radious of the Smokehouse than they have in stock ar nearby Rite-aid. Just walk a ways and they'll be on the bottom of your shoes in no time.

<snaps finger>

Hell I don't know for sure, but maybe they sell them in the restrooms at the Smokehouse. Anybody know?

I once lived close to the smokehouse and it's a delightful place to eat and the workers are professional and friendly.

Yes, they've always gambled there - even Rockefeller used to at $10 thou take outs and I'm sure they have bookies, etc.

Hey the Strand in the middle of Charleston had lots of customers and all you had to do was walk in the back and talk to a bookie or get in a poker game.

I'd never heard of either place robbing anybody or hurting someone like TRASHY DIVES will do and neither allowed prositutes and "john's" to run in and out. Also nice stores like Charleston Dept Store and Youngs are close by and they too are wonderful places to shop.

These people that own these places can't help what the polce can't stop from roaming the streets "roaches". I'm sure the justice system knows about the gambling and wants to turn their head for at least if "bad guys are sitting there playing poker" they aren't on the streets hurting anybody...

do they have sex on the sidewalk or do they carry the used condoms with them then dump their pockets out on the sidewalk?

And don't forget Kanawha City - the bar owned by the Lopez's (Golddome) they used to also own Murads on the east end - they always had the same thing - whether close to the statehouse or at Kanawha City. Yes and it's owned by the Lopez's now in politics.

I knew a man who had a pretty good sense of humor. He worked at a bank in downtown Charleston a few years back and he would go to the health department and get dozens of condoms. He would then open the rubbers and put elmers glue on the inside of them and a little on the outside and then strategically place them in the stairwells and elevators and hallways of the bank.

You should have seen the look on some faces and all the gossip it started.

People actually thought they were really used condoms and was wondering why they were left like that.

The cleaning personnel would just put on gloves and scoop those bad boys up. It may sound juvenile and I am sure it was, but I swwear it was funny as hell. It was a classic.

The bank was Kanawha Valley/One Valley/BB&T

One was so full of glue that one lady said

My God he must of been an elephany that left that load.

I still laugh today at the look on her face.
