The line was long; seems to be a popular local hangout. We were greeted politely and our order was taken quickly. The food was OK. Our barbecue was tender and tasty. We thought the portions were a little light for the price. There was not enough BBQ sauce on the BBQ sandwiches; therefore, we found our sandwiches a bit dry.... More

We were in town for a function at the University and selected Hook's based on TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. The building is sort of tucked away behind another building and even with a GPS device we drove past it, so keep a keen eye out when looking for it. If weather permits you may consider opening the...

We went for lunch and had the rib plate and pork plate..all plates come with two sides and a slice of home made pound cake. The food was great. The sauce is probably the best BBQ sauce I have ever had..and they sell it by the pint and quart!! Highly recommended!!

The food is delicious and we really like the big wooden booths. The place smells divine to a BBQ lover. I haven't had anything that wasn't really good. Love the BBQ chicken..it's moist and falls off the bone. They have a kids menu that is really reasonable. We dine here often! My only complaint would be that the young ladies... More

Went for lunch and this was a ok place to have a local meal. The food was ok and the atmosphere was relaxing. The BBQ was a local style flavor, not what I was use to. Hook's is one of the better places in town to eat. Just because of the very nice people there I'll try it again to... More

After doing some ziplining in Troy, I had worked up an appetite for some BBQ. Looks like a couple of places are rated well. In the end, we went with Hooks, and it didn't disappoint. The cashier said that they are best known for the ribs. And, the ribs were definitely the best item in the sampler. I ordered them... More

Their ribs are always consistent and delicious with or without the sauce. We usually get the ribs as carry-out with mild and hot sauce on the side, then add to taste. Hooks is very reasonably priced. I;d recommend them to any rib lover!

This was our second time at this BBQ joint in Troy when visiting my son. This time I enjoyed it much more than the first time. (I don't remember what I ordered last year) I ordered the brisket sandwich and found it to be very good. It came with one side and I ordered BBQ beans and they were tasty.... More

The food was good and plentiful. There are booths and chair seating. The staff is friendly. The BBQ sauce might as well be ketchup. I know they are popular, but I would suppose that is due to their catering pricing and supposedly home-made cakes.
