Several of my friends work near Billy's Barn and they are always talking about it so my husband and I finally had the opportunity to try it one Saturday. Everyone raves about their salads and burgers. I opted to go with a south west salad - it was ok. I wish different dressings were available to better compliment the flavor.... More

Billy's is a great place to meet for lunch and offers some true Roanoke Specialties. Delicious dishes named for local places, friendly fast service, and great prices. My favorite is the Barn Door (a meatloaf sandwich to die for) but don't overlook their Cobb Salad either!

Actually went during off peak hours and meal was excellent. I ate in the bar because of the time and although alone, felt comfortable.. Good place to stop during road trip or for a take away. Believe it might be very busy during peak times.

My fiancé and I had just hiked to Tinker Cliffs and saw this place on the way back in town. We dined in the "dining room" but the bar section looked fun too. We got the Tuesday special- a full rack of ribs for $15! And they were amaaaaazing. The bbq sauce was so good we were sad to hear... More

There was a not nice odor when we came in and we sat for 15 min. before someone finally came over and said "sorry, our kitchen closed at 9 pm. I... More

Tasty ribs. Exceptional kielbasa in the jambalaya. Friendly service. A very pleasant experience for a lunch stop on a road trip. Halfway between D.C. and Asheville, N.C.

Traveling through the area and staying at a close by motel. The desk clerk recommended this restaurant. Just wanted burgers. We ordered the bacon cheeseburgers. They were outstanding!! Will visit this restaurant again when in this area!
