Best hamburger I have ever had. Excellent service! Don't judge it from the outside. It just looks like a big red barn. So glad we stopped. If I ever go back to that area will definitely stop again. What a beautiful college town!

Just returned from Billy's and couldn't be happier (or more full). We started with an order of buffalo wings. They arrived fresh and hot out of the fryer. They were crispy and well sauced. Very tasty without being overly spicy. My husband ordered the ribs and I took advantage of the Thursday night $9 burger and beer special by ordering... More

Recommended by our hotel and they were right! Inexpensive and tasty, great burgers, pork chops, and salads! Staff was very friendly and on top of everything we needed! Down home feel, very welcoming! We will be back!

We stumbled across this place while looking for a Starbucks in Salem. It was lunchtime and after a long drive we thought we'd give it a try. It is a bar/lounge with a small dining area. Pretty much you walk in, have a seat and wait to be served. The service was friendly and given that it was the lunch... More

This place is a hidden gem. VERY CASUAL yet the quality of the food and service can't be beat. reasonable prices- my wife states that the Portabello Mushroom sandwich is to die for! As for me the 10 oz. steak (ribeye) was cooked perfectly and again very reasonable. We will be back!

This place was really fun. We just went for dinner but ended up dancing to a live band till 1am. Definitely made our random overnight in Roanoke fun.

We decided to try this place based on the reviews and are so glad we did. It is a funky restaurant with one side a lounge and the other side a restaurant. We have two young children and felt very comfortable there. Our server was Krystal and she was awesome. The food was delicious. The pulled pork sandwich was amazing.... More

Staff was very friendly. Great for families. Menu has a good variety something for everyone. We each had something different and everything from steak, ribs, soup, salads and burgers were perfect. Plenty of food for your dollar, and great taste. Their homemade potato chips were very good.

Good food and the service was good and reasonably priced. Friendly staff. My oldest got a big chicken wrap, he liked it. My youngest had the kid got chicken tenders, he liked it. I got a burger with fries and fresh fruit. The fruit and fries were delicious, the burger wasn't not well done like a prefer, so I sent... More
