Tasty and reasonably priced food. Service a little slow and confusing. During warmer weather lots of outside space.

My husband and I stopped by for date night. No clue what to expect. We told the server we had never been before and she offered no suggestions, no descriptions of the food, nothing. When I asked questions she answered very shortly. Luckily the food made up for the poor service. We ordered an appetizer of bread and was brought... More

As a former Roanoke resident, Fork in the Alley is still my favorite place to eat when visiting the city. The oven-fired pizzas are the best and the SoRo is my favorite (ricotta cheese, pesto, sundried tomatoes, baby spinach and black olives). Their sandwiches and burgers are great as well. Be sure to unwind with a drink at the bar... More

In an alley is true. Not easy to find but the food was worth the trouble. Excellent food. Fair price and good service. We had the Mediterranean salad and chili. Their three fork chili was excellent. The thing that grossed us out was the cook with disgusting, greasy, gross, unclean dreadlocks preparing our food. What ever happened to hair nets?... More

My wife went on 10/1/13. The waitress was very good and keep everything going. Their reubens are very good. They use great corned beef. It was very good and and fries were nice and hot. We will be back!

If you are looking for something other than a food chain restaurant this is your place. Someone said the cheese slaw is awesome...I will have to try that the next time I visit.

Fork in the alley is a great place within walking distance of the Cambria which serves delicious food and drinks in a very casual atmosphere. They have a small, cozy patio to enjoy outside dining.

Pizzas are average, and for a place with a wood fired oven I would expect more. Service is good, but if they are full you will wait far too long for your food.

We went here because of the reviews we had read, ans sure were not disappointed. Kelsy,I believe, was our server and we looked to her expertise to pick out the best Pizza and appetizer-and we were not disappointed. The chili and soup white chili were great and the pizza was of so good. We sat inside-a small area-because of the... More
