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.

Our family had lunch while traveling through Lynchburg. The pork bbq was great, salad was great, chicken was great. 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.

Just a little place next to the laundry mat that you find through the luscious emitting aromas. Don't count on finding a seat right away. Always packed but takeout is available. Delicious heaping portions of North Carolina style BBQ along with the home fries.

Stopped in for some 'Que because we had heard it was the best in town. Food did not disappoint. Chopped Pork and Brisket, creamy smooth slaw and a mound of flat fries, topped off by a hand scooped milk shake. It was soooooo good, we noticed Burger Fest started on the 4th so we returned to try one of 20... More

2 strikes and you’re out. Strike one: I was told the Ribs were fresh off the pit, they were as tough as leather, I talked to the server he just look at me with a blank stare. Strike 2: I was setting at the counter, we ordered the BBQ nacho plate, very little BBQ. Had to pick thru the Nachos... More

We were looking for a good barbecue place in Lynchburg, Virginia, which is a city with a real dearth of decent barbecue. Fortunately, we found Pok-E-Joe's, which is the sort of place you look for when considering barbecue. It's a small restaurant with about 6 tables and 7 stools at a counter. They don't serve alcoholic beverages. When you enter... More
