At SoRo Chill & Grille, culinary wizards decorate plates with locally grown produce and Cajun-style meats and seafood, garnering it praise as one of Southwest Roanoke County's Best New Things in 2010 from the Roanoke Times' SWoCo. Quartets can overture dinner symphonies with appetizers of the 12-piece new orleans barbecue shrimp, which simmers in a traditional creole sauce meant to be sopped up with crusty french bread or unusually absorbent mustaches. Entrees such as the pasta Mardi Gras fill noodle-shaped voids in diners' stomachs with Cajun-cream-sauce-cosseted fettuccine adorned by crawfish, andouille sausage, and blackened chicken breast. The rib platter's half-rack of slow-cooked meat morsels saunters to the table with fries and a piquant barbecue sauce, spurring on twosomes to finger-paint plates with love letters to the chef.

The grill gurus at Smoqin’ Odie’s Grill and Smokehouse sizzle up a lunch and dinner menu burgeoning with burgers, pulled pork, and steak. Sauces ranging from spicy jamaican jerk to tangy chipotle lime outfit slow-cooked wings ($3.99 for 6; $7.49 for 12) more tastily than miniature leather vests. The friendly staff whisks entrees to tables such as the Smoqin’ Odie’s Big Burger, whose char-grilled half-pound patty day dreams on a fluffy 5-inch Kaiser bun ($4.49), or the Smokehouse chili, which is loaded with smoked brisket simmered with ground beef and chilies ($2.99/cup; $4.29/bowl). Mouths water at the aroma of hickory-smoked Boston butt in a pulled-pork sandwich ($4.49 regular; $6.99 jumbo), and hands comfort provolone as it faints onto the savory brisket tucked into a hefty hoagie bun ($7.99).

Since 1986, Famous Anthony has built its reputation on classic American eats and warm, friendly service—a winning combination that inspired its expansion to nine popular locations across Virginia. Fast and fresh is the philosophy here, with each and every menu item made-to-order, from hearty breakfasts of country ham and eggs and biscuits and gravy, to home-style fried-chicken sandwiches, burgers, and North Carolina-style barbecue. Also contributing to the homey atmosphere is the open kitchen window at each Famous Anthony's location, which lets visitors get a good look at all the hard work, hustle, and magic wooden spoons that go in to every meal.

Elderberry’s, voted Platinum for both smoothies and milkshakes by Roanoker magazine, busies blenders with fresh and healthy ingredients to create its award-winning beverages, and a crisp collection of wraps, salads, and soups silences audible appetites. The menu of suave solutions showcases juices joined in flavorful matrimony, such as the Elderberry, a fruity fusion of raspberry and cranberry juices, strawberries, elderberries, and orange sherbet ($4.59); the raspberry-packed Really Raspberry ($4.59); or the Not Actually Raspberry, a handful of red paint balls mixed with a pair of Faberge eggs. Desserty drinks implant pep in energy-deficient steps with the coffee-based Perkilator ($4.89), or swaddle exposed sweet teeth in silky sips of the Chocolate Peanutter ($4.89).
