Great outdoor patio

Great food, especially their pizza. You might wait long for your food during dinner hours. Once in a while we get a server that seems to have an attitude, but most of the time they are pleasant. Outdoor patio is great in the evenings.

Neat little place, tucked away in a residential area, but food was nothing special. We ordered 2 kinds of pizzas, they took A LONG time due to other guests ordering pizzas. They got our pizza order wrong so had to wait more, but the server did bring my son some mac and cheese while he waited. So, nice atmosphere, but... More

Fork in the Alley drew me there one night last month because I wanted brats, and quite frankly there are not too many places in the Roanoke Valley that serve brats, much less good ones. 'Fork' did not disappoint, as I left satisfied from my brat and polish sausage evening!

Love this place. It's tucked away down an ally way, but worth the effort to find. Great pizza, woo oven yum. The outside eating area is wonderful. Prices are very reasonable but be sure to take advantage of the 10% off. Details are on the table and you'll need a cell phone with text messaging.

We visited Fork in the Alley on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. My wife ordered a pizza, which was tasty and generously topped as the menu promised. I had a pesto/pasta dish...it was exceptional! The one last characteristic that made this restaurant one of my favorite is that it is

Stopped here with the family (6 of us total). The menu was solid, and the food was great. There seem to be a lot of locals there. We stopped on a Monday night, and there were a lot of bicycle riders that came by after their ride. Everyone was super nice. Right next door was a great gourment cup-cake place... More

The menu is huge with probably 50 different choices. Of course, everything is not going to be great-the pulled pork barbecue was the best out of our party of 7. We were seated in an outdoor tent with a space heater that was nearly roasted us because it only had on and off settings. It will probably be lovely in... More

This is a good place to grab a hamburger. Not the tidiest restaurant I have eaten in but it will do.
