need roanoke lunch recommendations near I-81

Will be passing through Roanoke next Monday on our way to DC and am looking for a decent lunch place near the interstate. We're not huge lunch eaters, so anything fast, fresh, and nonchain will be fine. Thanks in advance!

  1. The best option on I 81 near Roanoke, VA if you are trying to make good road time is Three Little Pigs at Daleville at Exit 150 5 miles N of Roanoke, VA. It's located in a small shopping center less than two minutes off W side of I 81 and serves great BBQ. It also has a very nice outdoor seating area and the menu includes sandwiches and salads for those who don't want BBQ. They also serve cold adult beverages. The shopping center has some very nice stores in case you are in need of road supplies. There are nice hotels on both sides of I 81 and a nice big truck stop to refuel and pick up road supplies. Three Little Pigs is a much better choice. Check it out next time you go by.
    Three Lil Pigs BBQ @ 120 Kingston Dr., Daleville, VA 540 - 966 - 0165.
    Get off I 81 at Exit 150B and go E to Highway 11. Turn left and go N a couple of miles to Pomegrante Restaurant for outstanding seafood and steaks for dinner.
    Pomegranate Restaurant @ 106 Stoney Battery Road, Troutville, VA 540 - 966 - 6052.

        Thanks for the Great suggestion - had a delicious vinegar pulled pork sandwich for around $6. To clarify, it's west of exit 150B then left at the first major intersection.
