“Small place but good food!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

This place got decent reviews on Yelp, so I decided to try it out. The food was quite tasty. Appetizers for the most part are run of the mill standard but the entree's are modern and a nice variety. They also have a kid's menu.

“Most creative menu in Blacksburg”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Lefty's is a great restaurant in Blacksburg. In a town where the dining scene is dominated by steak houses, college bars, and burger joints, Lefty's offers a creative and fresh menu.

The decor/ambiance are terrible, but the food is great, well-made, fresh, and creative. Excellent beer selection, eclectic menu, and consistently good service.

One of the best restaurants in Blacksburg.

“Great place for lunch! Healthy food, good prices, & good service!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband & I ate here while visiting Blacksburg, VA for the first time. When we came in we saw that almost all the tables were full, with good reason. The food was fantastic. They have burgers but with unique and delicious options like goat cheese and so forth. The service was fast and friendly. They also had a nice beer selection and deserts. We will definitely be back.

“Lunch yes, Dinner no”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

...Contrary to my previous visits, the food delivered on all levels. Despite not using a bun, the sourdough was toasted and thick enough to stand up to the solid amount of juice oozing out of the cooked cow. No soggy bottoms here. The beef was juicy and perfectly cooked to my preferred medium rare. And the toppings all worked together in a way that made my tastebuds glad they came along for the ride...

...I’ve been several times for both lunch and dinner. The first meal there was quite good (cashew crusted chicken sandwich) so I was excited about future visits. Next visit was very meh. Visit after that uber meh. But being a hopeful, I went again. This time I got the burger (just like the pretty one above). There we go Lefty’s, good job...

“Local and Delicious”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

If you are looking for an alternative to the chain restaurants in Blacksburg, check out Lefty’s Main Street Grille on Main Street in Blacksburg. Lefty's has a wide variety of menu options, which are different for lunch and dinner, featuring fresh ingredients and homemade tastes. It is a small restaurant, where you seat yourself and can sit inside or outside on the patio. The servers are very friendly and the chef is very accommodating to your requests. I love their Chicken Salad Sandwich, but they only feature it at lunch. When asked, the chef made it for me for dinner. This time my husband and I had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and the Chicken Fingers and Fries; both were excellent. (Especially the Grilled Chicken Sandwich: Grilled chicken breast on grilled sourdough bread topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions, avocado, sour cream and jack cheese) Two meals, 2 waters and 2 desserts came to a very reasonable $32. I would highly recommend Lefty's. Make sure to get there early, since it tends to get crowded.
