The restaurant is permanently closed and I have to say that I am not surprised. The bbq was ok. Having grown up to pig pickings, I know about BBQ. The pulled pork had no hint of any smoke. As other reviewers state, there are others in the area that have better bbq. I feel sorry for the staff but the... More

This establishment is closing July 2016. Sad day but Mission BBQ at Towers is still going strong. Currently waiting to see what happens with the space in downtown Roanoke

We were told that this was the place in Roanoke if you liked good BBQ. We split a Carolina Pulled-pork and Brisket plate. Let's just say that we were there for lunch and ended up not needing to eat any supper. Plenty of food for two people and very tasty. Being from out-of-town, I don't know how many BBQ places...

This restaurant had good food although it is a bit small. It does have outside tables although we ate inside. The hushpuppies were excellent but the ribs were a bit dry and overdone. Great service.
