Big Smoke

Drive-Thru is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to Carl Johnson by Sweet from his home in the Grove Street cul-de-sac in Ganton.


Carl finds Sweet, Big Smoke, and Ryder as he comes into his brother's house. Big Smoke suggests getting something to eat, so Carl drives them to the Cluckin' Bell in Willowfield, where they promptly order their food. Whilst they are eating their food, Ryder spots some Kilo Tray Ballas gang members in a Voodoo, watching them and heading towards Ganton. The Ballas car turns around and performs a drive-by on Sweet's vehicle.

Carl drives after the Ballas, whilst Sweet and Ryder shoot at the car, eventually destroying it. Smoke decides to eat everybody's food instead of assisting the group attack them. Carl drives them back to Ganton, before taking Big Smoke back to his home in Idlewood.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get in the car
  • Drive to the Cluckin' Bell drive thru
  • Chase down the gang car before they cap your homies
  • Kill the Ballas gang members
  • Go back to Sweet's house
  • Drive Smoke to his house


The rewards for completing the mission are $200 and an increase in respect. The mission Nines and AKs is unlocked. The gyms across the State of San Andreas are then available for use after receiving the phone call from Sweet.


Get in the car and drive to Cluckin Bell. Once the cutscene ends stick close to the ballas car. Try to ram their car in walls, this will help in reducing their speed and will give your homies a better chance to shoot. Blow up their car. If any Balla survive, then just run over him. Take your homies back to Grove Street and drive Smoke to his house. You will pass the mission.


Carl Johnson waits outside as Sweet, Big Smoke and Ryder leave Sweet's House. They get in Sweet's Greenwood and drive to Cluckin' Bell.
CJ What's happening with 'chu Ryder?
Big Smoke Respect has to be earned, Sweet, just like money.
Sweet So what 'chu saying, you don't respect me?
Big Smoke What I'm saying is...
Sweet Speak up, nigga!
Big Smoke ...I'm hungry! Carl, you look a little thin man, you gotta be hungry man.
CJ Yeah, I could eat.
Ryder Look at 'chu fools trying to eat. How about some tacos?
Sweet Tacos again? Hell no.
Big Smoke Chicken man, no discussion.
Ryder Man, I don't want no chicken.
Sweet Carl, you drive, Smoke looks like he's gonna pass out.
CJ How'd moms get killed? We need to talk about it.
Ryder We all gotta talk about it, they was going for Sweet.
Big Smoke How you supposed to know that? You know what people are like, say they have love for you but won't say a word. Too damn scared.
Ryder Some people say they saw a green Sabre doing the work, then speed away.
Big Smoke Yeah, but people like to talk, don't they? Anyway, that's half of Santos you talkin' about.
Ryder Yeah, you right, my bad.
CJ Hey, bro?
Sweet They just sprayed the house. I ain't see shit.
CJ, Sweet, Smoke and Ryder arrive at Cluckin' Bell at the drive-thru.
Voice Comm Can I take your order please?
Big Smoke Carl, what do you want? You gotta eat to keep your strength up, man.
CJ Ey, I'll take a number 9, fat boy.
Ryder Give me a number 9, just like him.
Sweet I'll have a number 6 with extra dip.
Big Smoke I'll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese and a large soda.
CJ Hey, sorry bro, you know I gotta know about moms.
Sweet I know CJ, I know. I mean I'm just trying not to think about it, is all. I mean, I didn't even know she was hit until it was all over...
Big Smoke Yeah, right, right, right, right, right, right. Let's eat.
They start to pull away from the drive-thru.
Ryder Hey, don't we got a beef around here? We been getting to it with these fools.
Big Smoke I can't stand cold food. Unlike you, I ain't never ate from a trash can.
CJ Oh shit, trash can bitch!
Sweet Pass me my food.
Suddenly, they see a Ballas Voodoo drive past on its way to Grove Street.
Ryder Hey, hey, look! Kilo Trays scoping us out!
Sweet Damn Ryder, you a jinx!
CJ Shit, them motherfuckers headed to the hood!
CJ begins chasing the Ballas while Sweet and Ryder shoot at them. Big Smoke continues to eat his meal.
Sweet Hit it! Go, go, go! Hit the gas, we gotta ice these niggas!
Ryder Why you ain't blastin' Smoke?
Big Smoke I'll shoot 'em when I'm done eatin'.
CJ Quit stuffin' your motherfuckin' mouth! Let's go!
Big Smoke I ain't stuffin' it homie, I'm enjoyin' my meal. Hey, kill that asshole! Shit, this a great sandwich!
Ryder Smoke! Stop stuffin' your face and start popping them Ballas!
Big Smoke I'm just enjoying my food!
Sweet And them fools are trying to enjoy our deaths! Now, c'mon, Smoke, shoot!
Big Smoke Hey, I'm just finishing my fries! My special!
Ryder Oh shit, you got ketchup all over the seat!
Big Smoke The business at hand motherfucker, the business at hand!
Ryder But these was clean pants! CJ, watch the damn road!
Big Smoke Chill, motherfucker! This ain't a Sunday drive situation!
Ryder My soda! It's all over the fucking floor!
Sweet Well you can suck it up once we're done! Now keep your eyes on the Ballas car!
CJ, Sweet and Ryder kill the Ballas and head back to Sweet's house.
Ryder Damn, that was some serious shit!
Sweet Yeah man, those Ballas fools won't try that again! Come on, let's get back to the Grove.
CJ Alright, I'm on it!

Big Smoke Yeah, it was gettin' cold!
Sweet Y'all comin' in for a beer?
Big Smoke Nah baby, I need to get back to the crib. CJ, gimme a ride?
CJ Alright Smoke, let's go. See y'all later.
CJ and Big Smoke drive to Big Smoke's Home in Idlewood.
Big Smoke Hey thanks, Carl. Hey, I've missed having you around, baby.
CJ Thanks, man. I wish Sweet thought like that.
Big Smoke He don't mean it, CJ. He's still real tor' up about your Moms, man. Here, get yourself a little smokey smoke on Smoke, and relax, homie.

  • In this mission, the Ballas are seen using a Voodoo with tinted windows. This is odd due to the Grove Street Families using the Voodoo as a gang car, not the Ballas. The same pink Voodoo is also seen in the mission Sweet & Kendl.
  • At the end of the mission, the Greenwood will be fireproof.
  • Even though they go to the Cluckin' Bell Drive-Thru, Ryder can be seen taking a box from Big Smoke with the Burger Shot logo on it.
  • This is the only time the player gets to use the drive-thru at this location; other visits have to be via the front door.
  • During the cutscene in the drive-thru, notice that after the four make their orders at the menu part, Smoke picks up the food at the same spot but the pick-up window is on the other side of the building.
  • The song playing during the cutscene at Cluckin Bell is B.Y.S by Gang Starr.
  • When CJ, Smoke, Ryder, and Sweet enter the Greenwood, Ryder will take the passenger seat, Smoke will take the seat behind CJ, and Sweet will sit behind Ryder. However, when they start chasing the Ballas, Smoke is suddenly sitting behind Ryder and will stay there for the rest of the mission.
  • Despite the fact that Sweet orders you to work out, he is just as skinny, if not skinnier, than CJ.
  • The Pink Voodoo appears on a GTA SA Screenshot.
  • SPOILER WARNING - Smoke's refusal to help CJ, Sweet, and Ryder foreshadows a major plot twist that occurs a bit later in the game.
  • When the second cutscene begins, when CJ arrives at the drive-thru, if you look quickly in the lower left corner, you'll see a four-armed model of Big Smoke standing up. This can be seen easier on the remastered version on Xbox 360 as the cutscene now shows in widescreen.
  • Getting a MP5 with plenty of ammo will make short work of the Balla's car provided the player does not crash too often.
  • If you fail to kill the Ballas before they reach Grove Street, they will then gun down two GSF members, failing the mission.
