“Great Whiskey BBQ baby back ribs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2005

We went to Hank's Smokehouse for dinner while staying at Massanutten Resort. Our tour guide told us they have good steaks, and I was tempted to order one, but my wife saw they had a "Ribs for Two" dinner and that was the end of that. The Ribs for Two comes with 2 1/2 pounds of baby back ribs and two large sides. You can order either wet or dry ribs, we opted for the wet ribs with Hank's signature Whiskey BBQ sauce. The meat was very tender and the sauce was great. In addition we got mashed potatoes and cole slaw which were both good.

For dessert we ordered the warm fudge brownie with homemade ice cream and it was delicious. The brownie rocked and the homemade ice cream matched it perfectly.

The only bad thing was that the sweet tea wasn't very sweet, but I grew up on Carolina sweet tea which is loaded with sugar, so that is more of a personal preference thing. Overall the cost was reasonable with the ribs for two dinner costing $30. Their website can be found at (-)
