Hip BBQ place in cool part of town

Cool and hip place in the cool part of downtown Roanoke. Very bluesy atmosphere with exposed brick etc. Service was very good and our server was helpful in guiding us to what's good or better on the menu. The side salads are big and the dinner portions are larger than normal. I had the brisket... read more

Had lunch with another couple. Food was good, portion size ok. Have heard weekday lunch is great. Seating is a bit limited but if you like it cozy, then this is your place.

A great place to eat, good service and nice atmosphere. The barbeque and fried pickles are awesome.One of my favorites when visiting the downtown area.

Went here to grab a quick lunch and ended up taking a lot longer than I had thought. The Memphis bbq sandwich and fried okra were outstanding, however, we had to wait forever for our food to get out. If they could cut that time in half, this would definitely be a 5 star review.

I was really disappointed when I ate the Bourbon St. Louis Ribs. First of all I never had see them prepared and served the way they were, it looked liked 3 chicken legs. There was no smoke ring on the meat, had no smoked taste and were not tender. They may have been cooked over a wooden fired grilled but... More

What more can a girl want?!? Good drinks and great food, I was in heaven. I got the brisket but everything I watched come out looked and smelled amazing. The drinks are strong and the waitresses were friendly and happy to make recommendations. I wish this was by me back home.

Truly enjoyed the appetizers a trio of grit cakes, hush puppies and fried green tomatoes. . These were served hot and delicious. We both ordered the NC BBQ sandwich. The meat was tender and moist but, under seasoned for my liking, some Texas Pete would have helped but they only had Tabasco. BBQ was served on a made fresh bakery... More

Stopped into Blues BBQ again as it's one of our faves in Downtown Roanoke! This time I ordered their Bourbon Glaze Filet Sandwich with (always hard to pick) succotash. I took the filet pieces off the bun and had more than enough with melted muenster cheese and tomatoes to satisfy..very tender. Their succotash is divine made with heavy cream and... More

My son and I visited on the night of the AFC and NFC championship games. We were lucky to get a corner table--the place was not packed, but quite busy. It took overly long for a waiter to come with menus, then a while for drinks and then to order. And it took a while for our burgers to arrive.... More
