“Casual and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

The dinner specials never disappoint and are a great value. The same dish at a white table cloth restaurant would be 50% higher. Breakfast menu is original and delicious. Service is friendly but sometimes they're short staffed. It's housed in an old Long John Silver's so don't expect elegance - just great food at a reasonable price in friendly, family run establishment.

Susan,
Glad we are able to consistently satisfy your dining needs. We always try to provide great tasting food and good portion sizes for reasonable prices. I'm sorry that on occasion we are short staffed. We try our best to staff properly, but being in a college town, with so many events, we occasionally over look an event. Hope to see you again soon!

“Terrific Place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

If you are in Blacksburg, VA, don't miss eating at Lefty's! My husband and I stumbled upon this place for lunch last week as we visited Virginia Tech. The waitresses were so friendly and the food was fabulous! We both shared a bowl of the curry corn chowder (super!), I had the guacamole burger with homemade potato chips (awesome!), and my husband had the turkey ruben (delicious!). We would like to go back for dinner as Lefty's carries boutique beers and excellent wines -- all at reasonable prices too!!

Thank you for spending the time to write a review! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience! Because it is almost Spring, we are in the process of changing all of our wines and hope to see you on our patio trying our dinner menu with our new very tasty wines.

“First time trying leftys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

First impression was it needs a facelift outside and inside. Mix matched tables and chairs, painting needing done, decor needs big help, and so on. The server was very friendly, the food was absolutely delicious so despite the looks inside and outside I would definitely return.

“A Blacksburg favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Lefty's is one of my favorite eating spots in Blacksburg. I eat mostly vegetarian and in a college town, finding healthy meals that fit the bill is actually not so easy. Lefty's has quite a large menu. I'm confident that anyone would be able to find something tasty here! It doesn't look like much from the outside but it's cute and quaint inside. The service is consistently good and so is the food. Most recently, I was here with my family a few days ago. I ordered a sandwich and salad combo (my usual choice) and everything was fresh and delicious! Very reasonably priced, too. I didn't find that anything was too greasy like some other reviewers have said.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We hope to see you at Lefty's again soon! If you have not tried them yet, we have recently expanded our vegetarian selection by adding a few new sandwiches. We also run one vegetarian soup at all times, which can be ordered with any sandwich using one of our combinations.

“Good, Local Sandwich Fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Stopped at Lefty's for a sandwich on the way south form Northern VA to North Carolina. The building is attractive from the outside and nice but 'local' on the inside.

The service was quick and friendly enough. We had two sandwiches, one salad with chicken and one burger. All the food was good- the sandwiches (Turkey Reuben and Grilled Ham) we especially good.

Overall, a good experience. We will come back.

Ezwing,

Thanks so much for dining with us on your trip south. I'm glad that everything was great and thank you for you feedback. We hope to see you again soon, and if the weather is nicer, perhaps you can try out patio seating, which is always very popular in the summer. If we see you before the weather warms up, try one our homemade soups that should help keep you warm.
