My husband and I got the sampler and everything was delicious! The owner and girls were very friendly and service was quick. There are spots to sit outside of the food truck. It was raining but the excellent food and service made our day just...a little bit brighter❤️ Definitely recommend!More

We stopped over at Triple Crown food truck/restaurant when visiting Luray Zoo. The smell was what brought us in! They were almost closing and out of almost everything, so we ordered ribs and a sweet potato pie. Both were divine! The ribs were soft and...juice, fell off the bone, and the pie was very fresh, airy, not too sweet and simply on point. The ladies were very helpful, friendly and joyful and our food was ready in minutes. Great spot for lunch!More

Triple Crown BBQ has excellent food at a good value. The meats an sauces are excellent. We enjoyed it so much that we returned for a second night. The restaurant consists of a food truck that offers a few outdoor picnic tables for consuming your...meal. Most customers appear to take away their purchases rather than consume on the premises. The hours of operation vary depending on the season and day of the week so it is prudent to check the hours of operation before heading out to the restaurant. I would recommend this place to friends and family.More

The pulled pork was the best I’ve ever had. My family enjoyed it. We went back the next day again for lunch, as we were camping in the area. Super friendly people.

Didn’t expect to find a small place, but the food was excellent. Price was reasonable and the owner came to each table and wanted to know how the food was. If I lived closer I would be a frequent customer. I would highly recommend this...place. The quality of food was also great! If you are in the area or visiting Luray Caverns, it is only five minutes away. Fully worth the trip!More

Definitely a top place to eat in Luray, especially if you like BBQ. It is basically a food truck, so great for take-out or eating outside there. Triple Crown was recommended to us by a local brewery, so we went and got food can came...back to eat and have a beer. The food was ALL excellent! You can't go wrong. Everything is yummy. Highly recommended and definitely a favorite. And everyone there is super nice, and appreciative that you are visiting them.More

Ordered pulled pork, coleslaw and baked beans. The pork was really well prepared, the coleslaw crisp and flavorful and the baked beans were really nice. Great meat and equal thought going into the sides. The portion of meat on the sandwich was enormous. I'm going...to estimate 3/4 lb. Friendly service, too.More

Some of the best BBQ we’ve ever had! It was so good, we went back twice in one weekend. The pulled pork sandwich was absolutely delicious. The service was fast and the staff was very friendly! Between the five of us we were able to...try all of the sauces and every one was delicious and unique. Definitely give the Mustard BBQ sauce a try! I can’t wait to come back in the fall and try the smoked Turkey. We will absolutely be driving the 2 hours back to Luray just for this BBQ alone.More

We waited for 20 minutes to order two meals. When we finally got to the counter to order, we discovered they were out of everything except pulled pork. We decided to give it a try since we had waited so long. Then, we waited another...25 minutes for our food. Meanwhile, our one year old son was getting hungrier by the minute. When we finally got the food, it was just average. After reading all of the previous reviews, we were excited to try this place. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The food was okay, but it wasn’t worth the 45 minute wait.More

So we had been hiking. Then we came back and we went shopping, then we were hungry. So we looked on trip advisor. It rated triple crown barbecue as great and it turned out it was 1/3 mile away. Omg. And the barbecue rocked it....Pulled pork sandwich with delicious coke slaw. For lunch perfection. Or you could order for take for dinner. Only down side is only fri-sat-sun. Get it.
