Good reliable southern style b'fast

Ordered the Big Joe breakfast - 2 eggs, choice of meat (country ham), grits, biscuits & gravy, and toast. The cost was half of what it would have been at Cracker Barrel, and for the most part it was a superior meal. The sausage gravy was outstanding as were the homemade biscuits.

Get old fashioned feel with good, hot, reasonably priced food. We go there for breakfast every time we are in Blacksburg. Great Downtown location, but don't blink because you might miss it. Friendly staff, too.

The breakfast selection is typical but the food is very good quality and tasty - and the price is right. I should mention that several years ago I had about the worst lunch ever there and swore I would never return. They are now under new ownership, and I am glad I tried them again!

Saw a big crowd outside and said let's try this place -- it must be good!! We were told the wait would be 15 minutes -- turned out to be 55 minutes! We sat down, ordered and then waited some more. And some more, and some more -- 45 minutes before our food came out. It was good - OK,... More

Joe's has great breakfast. it's cheap and fast and no-frills. However, their hours are inconsistent. They used to be 24/7, but I think they close at 2 p.m. now. Check before you go.

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.
