Christine Martinez, the owner at The Smokey Bone BBQ, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the restaurant industry.

With nearly a decade of experience to her credit in the restaurant industry, Ms. Martinez has earned distinction as a co-owner of the Smokey Bone BBQ, a Texas-style barbecue restaurant. Founded in 2014 as a small BBQ stand, the restaurant has since expanded to a brick-and-mortar location in Hailey, Idaho, with a second location in nearby Twin Falls. Well-loved by local patrons for its relaxed atmosphere and impeccable service, the Smokey Bone boasts all the staples of barbecue cuisine, including briskets, pork, ribs, sausage, turkey, and chicken, as well as sandwiches and authentic Texan frito pie. Recognized for quality, the Smokey Bone has received numerous accolades from local media outlets, including the Times-News Reader’s Choice Award for Best BBQ Dining, inclusion in Idaho’s Best, Best BQQ in Hailey by Restaurant Guru, a listing by among the 13 Essential Restaurants in Sun Valley for 2019, and several features by Boise Lifestyle Magazine, Magic Valley Newspaper, and Pen and Fork Magazine. 

In accounting for her success, Ms. Martinez largely credits her sense of perseverance and integrity, as well as the influence of her husband and business partner, Juan, who shared her dream of owning a restaurant. Among her most cherished accomplishments, she is proud that the Smokey Bone has won so many local awards, all of which speak to its delicious food and quality of service. Looking toward the future, Ms. Martinez aspires to continue expanding the scope of operations at the restaurant and open at least two more locations in the coming years.
