Stopped by Rack'em Smack'em today for a late lunch. We were the only couple in the place. It looks a little dated but not bad. We both had the BBQ plate. The brisket was really good and the pulled pork had good flavor. The ribs...More

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.

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...More

As of the time we were last there (probably August) they were serving them on weekends and upon request if they had them. E.g., we observed a table being served them on a Tuesday evening.
