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!!
From Chef Hamill, 9/9/2016: The results are in!! The Rock&Roll Diner went to Staunton, VA over Labor Day weekend, for the Va Food Truck Battle. There were 24 trucks from across the state, 8 to a zone. There were many formidable trucks. We submitted our famous Key West Fish Tacos, and won 1st place for our zone!! Then went to battle with the other 2 winners, and came away with a 2nd place finish. Congrats to Farm Fresh Fixins for the win!! The event benefited the Madee project, which helps give pediatric care to youth with cancer. Thanks to all the volunteers who put the event together, and we look forward to next year!!!
From Chef Hamill, 6/20/16: Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday for the Big Lick Burger Fest. The Diner took home some awards - 1st Place for the Western Spam Melt, 2nd Place for Mesa Verde in Overall Category, and 2nd place for the Bacon Cheeseburger in Best All Beef. It was a fun day with some great music and lots of people. We will be selling the Mesa Verde and Spam Melt all week, so come check out the winners!! And thank you!!!!
From Chef Hamill, May 26th, 2016: Now that the catering month of May is behind us, we can start to pick up some Chef Specials for our weekly routine. On Friday May 27th we will be featuring our popular Sauteed Shrimp and Chipotle Cheddar Grits. A recipe handed down to me from my sister Becky Hamill, the Grits are simply unbelievable. Intense in flavor, sumptuous in texture. Then add 5 JUMBO shrimp sauteed in garlic butter with Franks hot sauce!! Dial in a few grilled asparagus spears and your in foodie heaven! Stay tuned all summer for great specials.
From Chef Hamill, 4/4/16: Hello friends and foodies.....the Diner has been busy taking requests and bookings for the 2016 season. The good news people have been calling in and emailing like mad, and we are booked deeply into the end of the year. The potential bad news is we may have to turn away some great events that people will contacting us for later in the year. SO.....if you anticipate needing our food truck at your business, home or festival, we advise you contact us IMMEDIATELY so that we can get you locked into the schedule. And thank you in advance for your business!!
