I tried the brisket salad, and it was really good! I enjoy seeing Grace, who is a great server. Fun place to go for lunch! Friendly staff.

Took a friend that had not experienced Hokie Smoky. Like others before, he said he had to bring his wife asap. Service and food quality are fantastic!

The best brisket EVER! I appreciate that they pay attention to their sides unlike some places that just go cheap here. Good atmosphere and great food, what else do you need?
