So glad my boyfriend picked this restaurant while we were staying at Massanutten. Undoubtedly the best steak I've ever had and nothing has come close to comparison since. He can take me to Hank's anytime

Staff was friendly and atmosphere was cozy. Wide variety on menu for those none BBQ lovers. We were impressed with sides and half of our meals. The other half (which was from their smokehouse menu) not so much. Pulled pork was mushy and the flavor was not to our liking. Brisket was tough and dry. I understand every area of... More

All 7 of us (4 adults, 3 kids) were extremely happy with our lunch! We had the brisket, ribs, and pork sandwich. All were very good, but the ribs were great! Our server, Diane, was excellent. Our food came out quickly. Portion sizes were excellent. We are looking forward to coming again.

Good ambiance. Hank's restaurant faces scenic mountains with a country railroad track running across the forefront. Nice artwork inside. Friendly service and natural flavorful pulled pork. Lunch prices are very reasonable $7.99 for pick two. Nice place to stop for lunch. Most pulled pork in restaurants are processed and doused in some BBQ sauce to hide the mediocrity of the... More

We got takeout there one night. The meat sampler was pricey ($20, I think) but fed me and my young child. The smokehouse salad with pulled pork was really good. Netherlands Mac and cheese was decent; Colorado beans were ok. Sit down area looked cool.

Ordered take out pulled pork, expecting hot fresh food as you get at Smokey Bones or Sonnys. Instead was given a small container (supposedly a pound but looked to be much less) of ice cold slop. It looked like tuna salad because it was so fatty. The fat hardened and looked like spam. I asked for BBQ sauce but the... More

Right outside resort wasn't sure what a bbq joint would be like. It is not a shack, but a large, modern restaurant with lots of seating and nice bar area, family friendly. Ribs were great, good flavor, large portions. Rib eye was also excellent. Big craft beer selection, bring a growler as the fills are very reasonable.

We had lunch at this restaurant and we were the only patrons there which kind of scared me. We ordered a variety of dishes from Ribs to pork BBQ and brisket. All of the dishes were very salty.
