Stopped in for breakfast and we loved it. Typical diner menu, but food was very good and the staff was excellent. Server was attentive and we got our food very quickly. Highly recommended if you are a fan of the hometown diner atmosphere

A student at Virginia Tech who was working at the front desk at the Inn at VA Tech, recommended Joe's as good and not too expensive. What a great breakfast we had. Country ham, biscuits and gravy, eggs fixed perfectly, grits. Yum!

This is the best place to have breakfast, and probably lunch (haven't been for lunch). Eat here every time I'm in Blacksburg. Had a great western omelet this morning topped with superior service by the lovely ladies working the counter.

Ate here while visiting Virginia Tech. Quite a busy local eatery serving up friendly smiles and conversation to go with the good food. Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous. Would eat here again.

Looking for a great breakfast in Blacksburg, we were directed to Joes at the local gas station. We were greeted and seated by Travis who welcomed us despite our ignorance of the town. The BBQ breakfast with regular or moonshine was great. We were introduced...More

We were on our way out of the area and decided to swing by Joe's Diner for breakfast. We found a metered parking spot around the corner at $1/hour (and the meter took credit cards). The diner itself is old and has a lot of...More
