Came specifically for the all you can eat crab legs and was not disappointed! The wait staff was friendly and made sure that we had everything we needed. The crab was excellent and they kept it comming until we were TOTALLY stuffed.

Ribs are first class and sauces are respectable. However......the week nite we were there at 5:00 pm, the waitress looked like she'd rather pull her liver out thru her nose with a crochet hook than be there. The kitchen was out of at least 5 menu items, including celery to go with blue cheese on the Buffalo wing appetizer and... More

Adequate but nothing special. Service was lovely but the food, not so much. To be fair, they were out of many items on the menu so we didn't get to try much. Doubt we'd go back.

I've visited this restaurant several times over the past several years and have always enjoyed it. But my last visit was not very enjoyable. The restaurant has a good menu, but our food was bland and cold. Also we has to pay extra for a very plain and simple side salad. The staff have alwys been great, though.

You'll have either good food at great prices, or great food at great prices. My wife and I were staying nearby in Staunton, Virginia, and learned of Rack'em Smack'em on the web. She ordered the Hickory BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger, and her eyes lit up on the first bite -- it was terrific. I took a bite and agreed (she wouldn't... More

Most of the reviews comment on the disorganised wait staff. They were but they were also polite, attentive when they remembered... One thing that amazed me in Virginia was when I ordered sweet tea, or in my case unsweet tea, it never appeared on the bill. A freebie is a rare thing. I had the mixed barbecue platter with beans...

Food is good. Had the rack of ribs, French fries, and Mac and cheese. Only hot thing was the fries. The rest was room temperature. Otherwise the food was good and prices were good. Seems like the staff is unorganized as everyone waiting tables was running all over the place like they were not assigned any particular table?
