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.

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

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!
