Pok-E-Joe's is hands down the best BBQ restaurant in Lynchburg. Don't be fooled by the small interior of the place, Pok-E-Joe's is big on flavor. The pulled pork, brisket, and smoked turkey are fan favorites. The portions are generous. You get great value for your...More

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.

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...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.
