Pok-E-Joe's catered to our school class of 50. The food (barbecue, beans, brisket) was amazing: warm, tasty, and satisfying. I recommend it.

Awesome family owned restaurant with incredible food! I highly recommend a visit to Pok-E-Joe's if you are in the Lynchburg area! I can't wait to have this barbecue and brisket again!

We were referred to Pok-E Joe's on our first visit to Lynchburg and we weren't disappointed. They're located in a nice shopping plaza in a small shop with a nice counter and a few tables. Very friendly welcome and service. We met the owner. Based on the number of to-go orders at lunch, this is a very popular place. We... More

I did not know this was open on Sundays. I decided to grab a fast lunch. I have avoided Pok-E-Joe's because I'm a staunch NC lover of barbecue. Here they use a sweet sauce that tastes like it has some liquid smoke added. I do not like that taste, so I have to give it an average for barbecue. The... More

Had a great catfish taco! It's a small restaurant, but the service is fast, friendly, and the food was great! Husband had the 2 meat dinner. There was a lot bigger portions than he has planned on.

The portions are a bit small - the bbq sandwich was more like a slider than a sandwich.the fries were undercooked. The service was very friendly, but slightly slower than ideal. With a few changes this place could be a super... More

My spouse and I went here for a casual date where we wanted to try something new. We both had the pulled pork sandwich with fries and both of us enjoyed it. I like when the meat comes plain and I can add as much or little sauce as I like. Even my picky spouse was happy with the flat... More

The food is good. The BBQ and burgers are excellent. The only drawback is the lack of seating. The home made chips are really good also.

If you're from Texas and need brisket you can get the VA approximation here. The brisket not Texas BBQ but the sauce is. The owner says Lynchburgers wouldn't like the better flavor of mesquite smoke and won't try it. Until then I'll just dream of real TX BBQ.
