Local place with BBQ Mende. The best ribs ever. Sister restaurant to Thunderbird and another in Harrisonburg. Fast service and clean.

We stayed in Harrisionburg and drive 20 minutes to Hanks. We're glad we did as the meal was excellent and the service was fast and friendly. I had the ribs and brisket and my wife had ribs and catfish. It was an all around good quality roadhouse meal. I especially appreciated the extensive beer menu with some local micro-brewery choices.... More

We own at Woodstone at the Massanutten Resort in September. We return every year and have family members with us. Hank's is a definite stop on our list. If you love BBQ this is the place. Their half price appetizers are a meal unto themselves. The staff is excellent. The prices are great.

The hostess dies not make eye contact, places menus hard on table (almost slams) walks away and says over shoulder that your waitress will be right with you. I watched this several times- not one smile or friendly word! Drinks did not appear until way after bread. Food was not very good - neither of us liked it. And it... More

Fall off the bone, melt in your mouth and make you smile. Different BBQ sauces for everyone. We always get the Dry rubs and add our own sauce since not one can agree to the same sauce. I will say the Whiskey BBQ is my personal favorite. A bit spicy with a smidgen of sweet. Baked beans are amazing, not... More

This place is off the beaten path but wow the food was great. Not a very large place, nice atmosphere, friendly staff and quick service. My husband and I went here for dinner while vacationing near the Skyline Drive. And it's very close to Massanutten Resort. The food was really good. We both had BBQ spare ribs. The seasoning was...

Came here early sunday afternoon and had a great experience. I had the Texas brisket w/ whiskey sauace, it was great. The wife and younger son had roast beef /gravy, also was very good; tender and tasty. Other dishes were wing's and salmon and all were very good. Must have their baked beans and mash with skin on, very good.

Get the Sampler or the Combo! The Dry Rub is great paired with a DB Vienna Lager. For sides, we liked the baked beans, cole slaw, red skinned mashed potatoes & definitely the Blackberry Pear Crisp for dessert!
