“Average BBQ”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The food was good and plentiful. There are booths and chair seating. The staff is friendly. The BBQ sauce might as well be ketchup. I know they are popular, but I would suppose that is due to their catering pricing and supposedly home-made cakes.

“Great value and great food”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Hooks is my go to restaurant when in Troy. The food is good and it won't break the bank.They are clised on Monday so youll need to make other plans. Also, if you like your sauce on the side you're in luck.

“Food is good, but...”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

The food is good, no problem...but the service is crappy and no matter what time their posted closing is, they try not to take an order, even if it is to go 30 minutes before closing...or at least that is the experience we have had...

“Very good, but not excellent BBQ”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

I ordered the combo plate which came with ribs and pulled pork. The pulled pork was had good flavor but lacked smoke and was a bit too finely chopped. The ribs were very tender and juicy but again the lack of smoke flavor made them just average. The colesaw and beans on the side were good and again nothing real special about them. The Alabama habit of pre-saucing everything is a bit of a turn-off for me, even if your sauce is really good. The servings were large and I would eat there again. I'm really not a fan of the counter service in a 'to-go' box.

Great pork salad. Very well made and LARGE. Definitely will fill you up. Even serve alcohol (beer). Don't miss this place when you visit Troy.
