Their lunch menu is an extremely good value, especially since their BBQ is so good. We have even used them to caterer some lunch functions at work. The BBQ baked potato sounds weird but is awesome!

Upper East Tennessee has some excellent barbecue: Firehouse Restaurant, Ridgewood, Pardners, Phil's Dream Pit, etc. But Hokie Smokie has become my favorite of all of these.

This is a top 5 BBQ restraint in the TriCities. It's in the same league as Ridgewood, Firehouse, and Phil's Dream Pit.

I love MANY things about Hokie Smokie, but now that I've had the ribeye, I will be hard pressed to eat anything else, there, at least for a while. Tender, perfectly seasoned. Wow. Oh, and the pulled pork, brisket, and ribs are great, too. Side...More
