Come for the food and stay for the atmosphere! You can sit either outside or in their small interior bar at this trendy restaurant that's tucked back behind the old Bubblecake. Their menu has a wide variety of delicious choices from brick oven pizza to a long list of unique hot dogs with neat toppings. The only critique is that... More

My wife, sister, and I all had a late lunch (brunch?) Sunday afternoon. Sat outside. Watched the Masters. Had very cold beer and a great green pepper and olive pizza. Service was excellent, food was delicious. Highly recommend.

We shared the large Roma pizza and it was excellent. The beer menu is very good and the Trippel beer is particularly good. Finding the restaurant was interesting as it is in a carriage house at the end of the driveway of a house. This of course makes the ambience more the interesting. We sat outside looking at a fireplace... More

We live in the area and eat here when we are nearby. I typically get the pizza (so good), but this time I got a Q Dog (a big thick hot dog on a bread bun with pulled pork, barbecue sauce, and cole slaw) and the homemade chips. It was definitely good and hit the spot. My dining partners got... More

While visiting family in Roanoke, we were looking for a good burger. After researching on TA, we decided on Fork in the Alley. It is located near downtown. We could only find street parking. Thus, parking was a bit of an issue. You have to walk down the alley next to the Cupcake place. It was a nice little place... More

Found this place a week ago, and so glad we did. Unpretentious little place with very helpful waitstaff and hostess. Had really good pizza and pulled pork. Will definitely return.

Went on line and found this place as it is a couple blocks from the Carillion Hospital in Roanoke. Got there late but they still were doing pizzas and finger foods. The pizza was great and they had some great beer selections. Staff was friendly, the place with cook art hanging and patrons having a good time. Not a large... More

We were so glad when we discovered this place over a year ago! We came on the recommendation of others, and we're so glad that we did. The food is surprisingly good! I love the Inferno Burger, and their specially pizzas are fantastic. The service has always been exceptional as well. The atmosphere in the pub area is great, and... More
