I'm a Virginia tech student and when my dad found this place for breakfast I couldn't picture where it was because I had never heard of it nor noticed it when walking by. Its a hole in the wall diner but my family and I were all impressed with the friendly and fast service, as well as the great food!... More

Had to wait a little for seating for a party of seven, but it was worth the wait. Great breakfast menu in the old diner style. Bacon was tasty, eggs perfect, gravy and biscuts very tasty, grits a bit runny. Yep I had it all. Very good service. Will be back

I used to eat here on the late night all the time when I lived in Blacksburg, and you could go in there and get a meal to fill you up after a long night for $5 or less. It's also a neat little spot, like a throwback diner, but I haven't been there in years.

The food is great! Every time I visit Blacksburg I make sure I stop at Joes diner for breakfast. The staff is wonderful! The place could use a fresh coat of paint.

Breakfast burrito was hot and full of flavor but the hash browns were cold and blah. Server was scary loud. Good coffee and fast service.

Trust me, you won't ever get better service in a breakfast diner than at Joe's. I don't think the staff (and there are plenty) ever passes by without paying attention to you. My omlette was a 10!

Had my first breakfast at Joe's this week. I now have a bone to pick with my son for not getting me there earlier in his time at VA Tech. The menu for breakfast has something for everyone. The service was excellent. The place is spotless. The food was as good as it gets. Simple - traditional - diner -... More

I discovered this place my senior year at Tech and wish I had known about it sooner. A cool little hole in the wall place next to Hokie Hair on Main Street, this lunch counter style restaurant is a blast from the past. Seating is tight and they will not generally sit large groups together. They close at 2pm so... More
