The hotel clerk at Best Western where we were staying recommended this as a dining option. We had a five minute wait about 8 pm, but the server our prompt and attentive. He took our order and the food was served quickly in view of the crowded restaurant. I had the Boursin Burger. It came properly done with a seared... More

Got a great pomegranate martini at the bar. Great bartender. Connie was our server. She is was very friendly and knew the menu. Got the food out quickly. Very tasty! I had the chicken penne pasta. ..maybe add a little white wine to the sauce to give it a bit more flavor.

Puleo's was recommended by the desk clerk @ Best Western as the best restaurant at the interchange. Alex was an excellent server - pleasant & efficient. I had the Caesar salad and the seafood ravioli. Both were good. My husband had the chicken sausage gumbo and spaghetti & meatballs. He said the gumbo was good but the spaghetti was dried... More

Looking for a great lunch about halfway between Roanoke & Nashville, we found Puleo's Grille - all 4 of us really enjoyed our food - burger; salmon; fish & chips but the standout among already excellent dishes was definitely Puleo's Country Fried Chicken with gravy - best ever! Host was very welcoming, our server was great! Kids want to return... More

We stopped here while travelling to Florida and our motel recommended this place for dinner. The next best alternative was Cracker Barrel so we opted for Puleo,s. They have a surprising variety of food from steak to seafood to pizza to Italian specialties like lasagna. Food and drinks were reasonably priced and quality was quite acceptable. We split a Premier... More

We were happy to see that Puleo's Grille was still open at 10:15 when we arrived in town after a long day of traveling. In fact, it was quite busy for that time of the night. Our entrees consisted of a ribeye steak with shrimp, spaghetti and meatballs, and a ravioli dish. Each was prepared well and was filling, so... More

We stopped here for dinner traveling through from SC. My wife and I are GF and they had a new GF menu with attractively priced options. The food was good and my kids loved the kids menu options. My only complaint was that the GF menu did not indicate a premium pricing for choosing asparagus as a side dish. That... More
