We ate there on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Food and service were so so. Prices a little high for the food. The most disturbing things was the service bad mouthing the restaurant rated higher calling them by name, telling us to go elsewhere. We heard a...waiter doing this at another table and ten our waitress came and told us the same thing. It sounded like a rehearsed spill. The food and the service was not as good as the restaurant they we’re talking about.More

Good food. I ordered chicken which was tender but just beware it has southwestern spices on it which the menu doesn't identify. There homemade coleslaw and red skin mashed potatoes were really good. Love the decor with metal are and contemporary style.

Overrated in every way! We were looking forward to eating here because of the reviews. Wow, were we ever disappointed! The ribs were the absolute driest we ever ate. It was like jerky on a bone, and I've eaten jerky that was more moist than...this! My husband ordered a full rack and I got the combo with ribs, pulled pork and brisket. The pulled pork moistened up with some of their bbq sauce - if you ate it plain it would've been dry too. The brisket was the only thing flavorful and moist on its own. Again, the ribs were horrible and bone dry. And the service was terrible too. The server never came by unless we called him over. He never asked if we needed anything or how things were. When we called him over to ask for the check I told him how disappointed we were in the ribs and how utterly dry they were. He said, "we smoke them fresh every day and yeah they do get drier the later in the day you come in." We came in about 2 hours before closing. Well wouldn't that have been nice to tell the customer who ordered the full rack of ribs?! We ate at Hanks two days after eating at The Log House (now known as The 1835 Smokehouse) which is less than 5 min down the road in the opposite direction. 1835 Smokehouse wins hands down in every way - taste, value, customer service! Even the sides tasted better at 1835 Smokehouse! So if you want dry, over priced, flavorless food with poor service go to Hanks. When we go back to Massanutten, we'll be going to the 1835 Smokehouse instead.More

We have been hiking the Blue Ridge and Skyline Drives and wanted some BBQ. The waiter suggested the combo for my wife and me to split. Everything tasted great, especially the fresh warm corn bread, ribs, brisket, and pulled pork.

Went to eat dinner around 5 pm to avoid a Friday night rush. After sitting at the table for 10+ minutes and every single server ignoring us we decided to leave. There were at least 3-4 servers not including the hostess working with 4 tables...and 3-4 people sitting in the bar. It was impossible to get someone to acknowledge us. Very frustrating.More

This was a great choice that Trip Advisor suggested. Service and food was great. There are many barbecue restaurants in this area and glad we chose Hank's.

Highly disappointed in the flavor (or should so lack of) the burgers we got. Hubby got Bacon Jam and I got the Whiskey Bbq Burger. They both were good size, however the burger itself had NO flavor whatsoever as well as toppings. Was told the...owner of restaurant doesn't like onions so you can get any onions on burgers or salads etc. I actually got the Whiskey burger because it had two onion rings on it. Before this visit, have always had good food here. So if you like onions or Good burgers, don't eat here.More

Staying at Massanutten we were unable to get into the barbecue. Someone told us about Hank's so we decided to try it. It was amazing! We had 12 people in our party from 4 years old and up. Everyone raved about their food especially the...Brunswick Stew, Pork Rinds, Burritos and Hamburgers. I would absolutely recommend!More

Near to Massanutten. Dining room and bar seating. The brisket was perfectly cooked. So tender they give you a butter knife, no steak knives. The bbq sauce was ok but a bit watery.
