From Chef Hamill 6/25/17: Permits and processes are winding down, chairs and tables almost finished....artwork being hung....soon we will be serving food in our new restaurant at 2406 Franklin Rd, Roanoke VA 24014. It has of course taken much longer than we expected, and there is still lots to do, but we will open before we finish every little detail, or we will never open LOL. So stay tuned, thanks for your continued patience, and we will see you soon.
From Chef Hamill, 2/26/17: Hello and happy almost spring!! You may have noticed our food truck has been parked fairly regularly on Franklin Rd in Roanoke. 2406 Franklin to be exact. What are we doing? We have leased the building and lot there. As for now, we are parking the truck there most days of the week and serving food from the truck, as normal. We are also making the front room a small dining area. Soon customers will be able to take their food inside to eat. Later this spring we will have some seating outside as well. Are we still a food truck? YES!! We are still taking the truck out to various businesses, catered events and festivals. We will continue to do so in the future. How will you know when we are there? We post our schedule every week on our website www.rockandrollfoodtruck.com, and almost every day on facebook and twitter. Follow us there to stay up to the minute, and come by and see us at our new location!!
From Chef Hamill, Owner, 12/12/16: Happy Holidays from the Rock&Roll Diner !! We have had another great year thanks to you, our wonderful customers. As we wrap up the 2016 season, we look forward to a great new development for 2017 regarding a permanent place for our truck to park. We will be revealing the information soon!! Customers will be soon be able to count on the truck being in the same place for lunch and dinner many days of the week, and still being able to come find us at festivals and local events on the weekends. The food truck will also still be available to come out to businesses and events during the week...just check with us to see if your event meets our criteria for a visit!!

10/5/2016, From Chef Hamill: Thank you Daleville, VA, and all who attended the BOCO BBQ Festival. It was a great day and a great turnout. We fired up the smoker in the wee hours of the morning, and put the pork bbq, brisket, chicken and ribs on the fire. By noon we were ready to go, and ended up selling out of all of our food by 4pm. During the awards ceremony, we took 1st place for our "Smoked Beer Can Chicken", and 1st for our "Trifecta Sauce" Smoked Ribs!! Took 2nd place for our brisket and pork BBQ as well!!! Come by soon and try our awesome Pork BBQ, which is always on the menu!!
