“Good alternative”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

This is a popular place among locals as well as tourists. The BBQ was good and price was reasonable. We had the sampler and got 1lb of meat for only $17. If you want to go, be aware of the opening hours, it closes at 6:30pm.

“Triple Yum!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Best BBQ eaten in a long time! Everything was moist and tender. This is not a sit down restaurant, but a roadside shack with plenty of outdoor seating. Nothing to distract from the meat!

What we ate: the sample which includes 1/4 lb. beef, 1/4 lb. pork, 1/4 chicken and 1/4 rack of ribs. Perfect smoke ring on the beef and ribs. Not overly sauced. Nice pepper on beef to give a little heat. Really enjoyed the Crown sauce on the pork.

The smoked sausage is more like a weisswurst with nice smoky flavor. Extremely moist.

Tip: put some of the Carolina sauce on the chunky potato salad, wow, a nice combination! Coleslaw is not too vinegary, very fresh and crisp.

“Best in the Shenandoah”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

One of the first places to stop after being out on the road driving to Luray. Nothing will get your trip to the Shenandoah Valley started better than a great BBQ at the Triple Crown. Everything I've had so far is great. Especially like the way they make the baked beans.

“Fantastic BBQ”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

One stand makes some of the finest BBQ in the Shenandoah Valley.

Triple Crown BBQ is a seasonal BBQ stand, but makes some of the finest food you can have in Luray. Everything from the Pork, to Chicken, to Coleslaw and Baked Beans is awesome and incredibly flavorful. There's several different sauces with a base of molasses, honey, or mustard that is all worth trying. The family that runs the stand is incredibly nice and offers nice sized portions for platters and family meals. You have to wait for your food, but it is always worth it to have it at the stand or take it home. I'm always impressing newcomers by showing them what I ordered and they immediately get a hankering for food.

If I recommend any food automatically to people, get a Pork BBQ platter with Potato Salad and Cole Slaw with a Side of Bistro Sauce (A horseradish-based sauce that has to be requested for)

If I were to complain about anything, is that the location can be an issue. The parking lot is slanted and can be hard to navigate around when it gets packed. But the quality of any restaurant is based mainly on the food, service, and right.

It is worthy of the title Triple Crown.
