Some of the best smoked pulled pork in the area. Great sides and generous portions. Friendly service, conveniently located near the Johnson City Mall. The smell of smoking meats alone is worth the trip!

This is the best BBQ and food in the tri cities or anywhere. Their food portions are large and you will not be disappointed. My favorite are the BBQ nachos or the wings. But everything I have had here is great!

We usually go with anywhere from 15 to 20 people every Thursday night. We decided to try out Hokie Smokie one Thursday in November. It was dark when we got there due to the sign being out because of the time change and the owner had it fixed immediately. That was one of the small problems we encountered. The other... More

Amazing food- always. Every time we have ate here I have always been surprised by how great all the food tastes. From BBQ pork, to brisket, the wings, to the potato skins and brisket loaded spud- it's all soooo good. If you've got reservations like I did the first time I saw it, Just try it. You won't be sorry.

We ordered a smoked turkey for Thanksgiving from Hokie Smoky. It was very good. Lots of flavor. I will definitely do it again next year. Their daily menu is awesome as well. They have gluten free options. The staff is educated on handling gluten free requests.

When we moved here we ate there all of the time. It was always crowded at lunch time. Something changed and the BBQ was unrecognizable and dry, so we stopped going there about 6 months ago.

We were looking for a place near the Johnson City Mall and saw the good reviews so we went there for lunch. It is a small place and we were a little apprehensive. They did not disappoint. Very friendly service and WOW! The food was fantastic. I had the brisket sandwich with the potatoes with onions. The brisket was so... More

Stumbled across this place on vacation and figured it must be good as they were doing a brisk business on a Monday night. We ordered the ribs. They were delicious with or without the sauce. They were the big St. Louis style ribs, so half of them were saved for the next day. The sides were good as well. We... More
