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

Been months since I was there but BBQ from where I live doesn't live up to Blue's. Welcoming staff. Great BBQ sauces. Thick ribs with great dry rub. Liked the pulled pork as well.

we had an unplanned stop here on New Year's Eve. We were able to get a table. The place was packed. All the staff was very friendly and accommodating despite how busy it was. The food was great as well as the drinks. Very reasonably priced. This place has a great atmosphere. Well worth the trip.

Some of the online reviews said slow and mediocre vinegar-based BBQ, but it also seemed to be best in the area so we gave it a shot. 7 miles off the Interstate, into the snarl of cute downtown area. Sadly, wasn't worth the detour and pay-lot parking. BBQ was tender but flavorless and the sauces didn't help. Side of cole... More

If you're looking for a great place to grab lunch in the downtown roanoke area, this place is a must. The pulled pork is amazing and the reason I haven't really gotten any other food there except their sweet potato fries which are actually crunchy! And if you are a bourbon fan, you have no excuse not to visit. Everyday... More

My family was looking for dinner in downtown Roanoke. For those that are familiar with the area, here are possibly thirty restaurants in a two block area, but we felt that bbq sounded good so we have this place a try. It's located in the southwestern corner of the square and has outdoor seating during the warmer months. Their pulled... More

If you're in the mood for BBQ and you're in Roanoke, you can't go wrong with a trip to BBQ on the Market downtown. Their pulled pork is very good. their beef brisket may be even better. Hush puppies are served with a small side of peach butter. Greens = excellent. Beans = yummy and just a touch spicy! Small,... More

I visited Blue's BBQ on a Sunday around lunchtime and had a great experience. Our waitress was very friendly and the food came out piping hot. I would recommend trying the fries and the Mac and cheese bites, as both were delicious. My boyfriend was a big fan of their fried pickles. The restaurant has a bar like atmosphere and... More
