Stopped at triple crown for something quick. Turns out they were quick and the food was hot and very good. They are conveniently located in a very busy area near Luray caverns. They have picnic tables so it is best to go on a nice day or plan to eat in your car. Prices are reasonable.

The barbeque is amazing, the portions are huge, and the service is quick and friendly! They are open seasonally, but you can get huge quantities of barbeque to last you until they open back up. We got a bunch a few years ago for a cookout and froze what was leftover. It came out of the freezer just as good... More

Virginia barbecue is underrated. If you like NC or e. TN BBQ you will like this. Properly cooked pulled pork in a very generous sandwich amount. Sides are ok. Slaw variable; beans above average. Not a restaurant; closes early. Not easy to spot from the road; it's a shack not a restaurant. Take out only although there are a few... More

My family and I were at the Luray Caverns and we decided we did not want to eat at their eatery, so I jumped on Yelp. Saw this pace and decided we would give it a shot. We drove there and as we passed we saw it was a "food truck" (we are not big fans as we like to... More

We stopped at Triple Crown BBQ before a visit to Luray Caverns. We tried the ribs, pulled pork and sausages. The ribs were very good, but could have a used a bit more time on the smoker to make more tender. The pulled prok was excellent. The sausages were also very good. The location does not look like much, but... More

Great roadside stand. Use tri-tip vs brisket. Sides are great, portion sides are good, and prices are good.

Would make a vegetarian reconsider their ways! Rib Heaven discovered. Served up with a hearty dose of southern hospitality by Luray natives who know how to whip up ahhhmazing BBQ! Loved it! Best stop and well worth the drive over from DC!

Really good BBQ. Meat tender and cooked perfect. No fat or grilse. Sandwich ($7) is a 1/2 lb. of meat served on a hearty bun with or with out slaw. The sauces are good but the hot didn't have much or a BBQ taste, just heat. A great meal after hiking the Shenandoah N. P. They have a couple of... More
