We really enjoyed our lunch here passing through Roanoke. The service was nothing great and the restaurant was quite dark although, the food rocked. Everything our party of 4 ordered was really good. The staff was quite nice, just busy. The ribs and pulled pork were incredible. We will return.

My parents came into town and wanted to go out to dinner and we had both heard positive things about Blues BBQ. When you first walk in while waiting to be seating the old decor is quite appealing. There is not much seating and it almost feels crowded. The server took a long time to even take drink orders. There... More

I just came back from a dinner at Blues BBQ and my wife ordered one of the pork slaw with spice sauce and I ordered the smoked chicken sandwich. The pork slaw did not have any sauce and did not come with slaw and when we asked the server he told us that did not come with the food, I... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Salem. My husband had a pulled pork sandwich and I had a turkey wrap. Both were really good. The hush puppies are to die for with their peach butter. Our waitress was really sweet and gave us recommendations. Great atmosphere. Will definitely come back when we're in the area.

We had a mixed experience at this restaurant. It is located in downtown on a pedestrian square and has both outdoor and indoor seating. We chose indoor because it was very humid but that only gave partial relief. The server was very nice, put in our order and kept our drinks full. When an issue with the POS system caused... More

I lived in Roanoke from 2009-11, and Blues was always a must-visit at least twice a month. The brisket is absolutely one of the best I've had anywhere. My wife would certainly recommend the fried mac & cheese pieces. However, I'm a proud member of the Wall of Cirrhosis, one of the few to have sampled every single individual bourbon... More

Great menu and cool atmosphere. Makes for a good place to people watch, too, if you sit outside. Centrally located in downtown and lots to do around there.
