We live in the area and eat here when we are nearby. I typically get the pizza (so good), but this time I got a Q Dog (a big thick hot dog on a bread bun with pulled pork, barbecue sauce, and cole slaw) and the homemade chips. It was definitely good and hit the spot. My dining partners got... More

While visiting family in Roanoke, we were looking for a good burger. After researching on TA, we decided on Fork in the Alley. It is located near downtown. We could only find street parking. Thus, parking was a bit of an issue. You have to walk down the alley next to the Cupcake place. It was a nice little place... More

Found this place a week ago, and so glad we did. Unpretentious little place with very helpful waitstaff and hostess. Had really good pizza and pulled pork. Will definitely return.

Went on line and found this place as it is a couple blocks from the Carillion Hospital in Roanoke. Got there late but they still were doing pizzas and finger foods.

We were so glad when we discovered this place over a year ago! We came on the recommendation of others, and we're so glad that we did. The food is surprisingly good! I love the Inferno Burger, and their specially pizzas are fantastic. The service has always been exceptional as well. The atmosphere in the pub area is great, and... More

We went as a pair of couples. The food was adequate and priced fairly... it was not bad, nor did it blow us away. The server was fine, but could have stopped by more, I had an empty glass a couple times. We would return again, but it isn't on our list to visit right away.

Went for a late afternoon lunch. Everyone's food was great and each person took home enough for a another meal. Pizza, salads, and a kids CEO all great! Beer selection is nice too.

Very nice bartender, with good hiking tips! Monday night, burger and a side for $6!! You can't beat that!! The Lipes and the burger with the olive relish were great! That pimento cheese spread is awesome🙀love it!! About 16 beers in tap, about 1/3 being local craft selections. Cute location! Check it out!!

Service friendly and good, patio closed in for winter and dog friendly. Also well heated. The food was mediocre at best.
