Enjoy Delicious Smoked Meats at McCray’s Smyrna

   That mouthwatering aroma you’ve noticed coming from West Village? That’s us! We’ve got a brand new smoker and we haven’t been shy about it. It's front and center on our outdoor patio in Smyrna, and it's rolling out the tantalizing temptation of savory smoked meat all throughout the area!
