We ate here while visiting Roanoke for one night two weeks ago. We selected it because of the reviews and the fact that it was dog friendly with outside dining. The staff was very accommodating to us and our dog with many of them stopping by to see her. At the recommendation of our server, we ordered pizza which was... More

Moyher-daughter-granddaughter dinner on the patio was delicious. Fried, breaded green beans were an unexpected and tasty trade-off available instead of fries. Burgers, salads, hard to choose what to order, and the service was fine.

My husband, mini dachie and I took a break from Interstate 81 to drive through Roanoke mid-day, We parked and walked through the downtown area where numerous casual eateries were open for lunch. We stopped here and had veggie burgers. Waiter was friendly and offered to bring our dog water. A nice upgrade from Interstate fast food! Had fun watching... More

Great local spot in Roanoke. Quality food made with care and excellent value.. Had a reuben, burger,pizza, and grilled chicken sandwich. Food was delicious, we ate outside so did not go inside the restaurant. Enjoyed a nice local IPA Wild Wily. Highly recommend.

I like getting pizza at this place. The other food I've had is average, not bad, not spectacular. The location is fun for an outside meal and cocktails.

Passing through and had a neat name so we stopped for lunch w/our 6yo and 9mo. Neat little location, street parking, and happens to be a pokestop if that interests you. I had a chicken sandwich I can't pronounce but thankfully I got the adobo sauce on the side because it was HOT. Good service, neat outdoor seating (shaded and... More

I highly recommend this place! We went for lunch and all of our food was delicious! Pulled BBQ, Burgers, Pizza...it was all fantastic. The homemade chips were still warm and fresh! Service was a little slow, but it was worth the wait.

Overall, I thought the food was pretty good. I had the Tender Wrap, a wrap with cut up pieces of chicken tenders, and I enjoyed it. The chicken was juicy and the breading was not greasy. The mac and cheese was a little dry, I like mine creamier, but it wasn't bad. We sat inside, which was cozy but verged... More

Worth the time to find if you are in the Roanoke area. Was looking for a unique local place and saw the reviews and decided to give it a try. Glad I did. Food and service are excellent. Choose outside dining cause the weather was perfect. Nice place to relax and enjoy a good meal.
