“Yuch!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Bar-B-Q was like out of a can. Frozen fried okra; and if the french fries were "fresh cut" I'm a monkey's uncle. Nasty sauce collection from months ago in filthy bottles. Oh wait, did I hear blues? Ah, no. Service was okay.

“Nothing to see here!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went here with friends while visiting Roanoke. The food was not bad, but nothing great. The Barbeque was similar to what you would make at home. No great variety of sauces to put on the sandwiches. The ribs were about the same. Not a super great deal for the price paid. Not horrible, but not a "must see" when in Roanoke.

Excellent BBQ and large portions! The sides are all delicious too and a small but great selection of draft beer!

“Good food, music, beer and people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Tuesday was live music night and we had a great time listening to Kelly Scott, eating southern food and drinking beer. Nice, friendly hospitable people too. Great pulled pork (a dish not an activity) and the tastiest fries. We went back again for the beer!
