“Understaffed... decent food”
In an era when much of downtown Blacksburg is comprised of restaurants, the Hokie House still stands. There is a certain authenticity that comes with a place like the HH that you just don't find at nearby Chipotles or Moes. The menu is burgers, sandwiches, a few salads, and cheap beer. Just what college guys want.
I had a burger with a bunch of stuff on it - onions, mushrooms, bleu cheese, buffalo sauce, and more. It was decent, but not outstanding. My spouse's jerk chicken sandwich was probably a better choice.
While we were there, the whole place was staffed by one cook and one server. At first that seemed sufficient, but suddenly a bunch of people came in all at once, and the server was suddenly too busy to pay much attention to anyone. I get that the restaurant business has a very small margin, that owners staff for the crowds they expect at certain times of day, and probably the staff was sufficient for a normal Friday. But besides taking our order and bringing our food out, we got no other service
The men's room was just nasty. No telling when it was last cleaned. But again, your average college guy just doesn't care, so what the heck?
