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.

I love this place! It has such a cozy interior that feels like home. The staff is friendly and inviting as well! The food is tasty and the menu is very diverse so no matter what you're in the mood for, you're bound to find something. Personally, I think the pizzas are the best in town! Also, if you're just...

All five of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the service was wonderful. The outside dining was just perfect on a cool summer day. I HIGHLY recommend the Bro-ritos or Athenos pizza. They were AWESOME!

Went with my family the day after a graduate. My brother lives in the area and suggested this place because it was a beautiful day and you can eat inside or out. We choose to eat outside. We had to ask 3 times for them to put on the ceiling fans, as it was humid due to the plastic sides... More

Late lunch mid-week with a restaurant nearly empty yet the wait staff seemed bothered that we were there. Maybe an anomaly so if in the area we may try it again.

I was in Roanoke for the weekend and we visited three local restaurants to eat. Fork in the Alley was my favorite of the three. They had a great patio that we ate on because the weather was nice. There was a great selection of food on the menu and I decided on the Shep Sandwhich and it tasted great.... More

This restaurant is correctly named, it is small inside and tucked into an alley. There is more outdoor seating than indoor. We sat in the enclosed outdoor area, which was a little chilly. The menu is huge, with lots of choices for different tastes and budgets. I tried the Brunswick stew, which was good withal but of spice. I would... More
