Awesome BBQ, ribs

This is where the locals eat. ½ price appetizers 4-6PM Monday through Friday are enough for a meal for the ladies, but the blue plate special and the ribs are sure to please the Jen.

Our family was staying at Massanutten resort and we didn't want to eat at any of the places on site. We tried Hank's the first night for dinner. The service was great and the food was outstanding. We ended up coming back for lunch and dinner the next day!

We have been patrons of Hanks for 14 years (in fact, I've probably reviewed them in years past). We love the food. The ribs with the dry rub is a family favorite, and the BBQ is great! That said, we have kids and sometimes it is better for everyone if we just do carry out. Two of the last three... More

As the owner I am extremely disappointed in your unsatisfactory experience. Thank you for bringing this problem to my attention. While it is no excuse, we do have some newer staff that have been first trained as a server and the to-go trade has received secondary training. I will begin the process of improving our to-go service. I understand if... More

When our favorite BBQ restaurant was closed, we hopped on down to Hank's. Guess we visited on an off night. The food was okay, but I wasn't crazy over their sauces. Glad we tried it and will remember that our favorite BBQ restaurant is closed on Tuesdays!

We decided to eat at Hank's for lunch. The decor was very nice. A nice small fish tank was in the middle of the restaurant. The service was great and fast. The menu was great with some excellent choices. There were 5 different types of sauces to chose from for the ribs. Me personally like the wet rubs.. not to... More
