    Cabo Fish Taco: Mexican & Seafood

    by jmpncsu Written Jan 31, 2014

    Cabo Fish Taco in downtown Blacksburg is a Mexican/Seafood restaurant. As the name implies, their speciality is fish tacos. We stopped here for dinner as a group after hiking in Jefferson National Forest and had a good experience. I'm not a big fan of seafood, so I had the chicken wrap and it was pretty good and quite large. I was hungry so I appreciated such a large portion. It's a college town, so the atmosphere appeals to that type of crowd, but we had a nice time. The service was very good even with a big group, everyone enjoyed their food, and the prices were reasonable, both for food and drinks. Even though I don't much care for seafood, I would stop here again since they have a few alternatives.

    Boudreaux's: Cajun food in Blacksburg

    by mikelisaanna Written Jan 12, 2013

    Boudreaux's is a small restaurant on Main Street in downtown Blacksburg that feautres Cajun food and other types of Southern cooking. They also do a nice Caesar salad, if you are a vegetarian.

    It has a ground-floor dining area as well as a rooftop dining area that is open in warm months. The decor is not fancy - much like a diner. There is a bar in the back of the ground-floor dining area. One nice feature of Boudreaux's is its menu of microbrews.

    Mike's Grill: A Blacksburg Perennial

    by mikelisaanna Written Dec 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mike's Grill is a basic diner-type restaurant that has been at the same location on Main Street for an eternity. Definitely not where you go for a gourmet meal, Mike's Grill is where you go if you want a burger and fries from somewhere other than McDonalds or Burger King.

    Mill Mountain: Great place to hang out

    Mill Mountain

    When I lived in Blacksburg, I used to spend countless hours at Mill Mountain. They have excellent coffee and tea and baked goods. Sunday mornings when school wasn't in session were my favourite times- all locals in a quiet, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Then tend to have friendly and helpful employees as well.

    Favorite Dish: Snow Monkey Plum tea- tangy and flavourful

    Emilios International Cuisine: Right on Main

    by HotSpotJ Written Nov 5, 2005
    Emilios

    For Pitas, burgers, subs, or even a pizza, stop in at Emilios... with a great location on Main Street it can be a nice break from all the Hot Wing spots and sports bars on Main Street.

    Favorite Dish: I think they make a great pizza, but their subs are very good as well.

    A Blacksburg Tradition: Big Al's Grill and Sportsbar

    Having a drink at Big Als

    If you attended Virginia Techy and never ate a burger at Big Al's, I'd have to question the validity of your education- everyones knows the best burgers in town are at Big Als, and a great place to spend gameday before a night football game. Big Al's is upstairs, operating above affiliated Poor Billys Seafood

    Favorite Dish: Gotta get a Bacon Cheeseburger!!! Though, I have to say this, the service has gotten much slower over the years.

  • Souvlaki: Best Greek food ever!

    by jusplainjesse Written Aug 12, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great greek restaurant with a unique twist...It's set up like a typical american diner. You can sit at the bar or at one of the tables...you're choice. You seat yourself. The place is very informal, i've even found myself talking about sports with my waiter as he worked (yet again I say...very informal...the waiter was not by any means slacking...I was the only person in the restaurant.) This place is a local favorite and, actually gets respect and loyalty from locals including myself.

    Favorite Dish: Pita with cheese. It costs less than a Coke from a West Palm Beach vending machine and makes a great snack. All it is is a pita baked with Mozarella cheese served with a side of cucumber sauce cost for all of this?...$1.09

    Various: Restaurant Variety in Blacksburg

    by HokieinNC Written Apr 30, 2004

    Given Virginia Tech's variety of student backgrounds, with students from all over the world, there is quite a sampling of international cuisine. For Vietnamese, try the Vietnamese Tea House in University Mall. For pizza, try the Sicilian over at PK's. For Indian, India Gardens has a fantastic buffet. There are several good Mexican restaurants - try El Rodeo and get a margarita. Downtown has good ones too - Cajun restaurant Boudreaux's serves up some spicy stuff, while Gille's is quite popular for vegetarians. If you want southern homestyle cooking, you will not go wrong with a (long) trip out to the Homeplace. Ask a local how to get there. For Italian, check out the Cellar, it's pretty tasty.

    Bon Appetit!
