Lingering weather

Lingering weather

From Chef Hamill 2/24/16: Ahh the winds of winter.....never fails. We always plan to take off some time in the winter to rest and repair for the next season. But inevitably we get bored and want to come back out...so we risk it and hope the weather will be mild, which it is for a week or so, and then BOOM, we get hit with 15 days of snow, wind or rain or freezing temps. So stay patient Roanoke...we will be out as soon as it is safe and productive for everyone to be out. Hopefully this Friday the 26th. Stay tuned!!

Back at it 2016!!

The Diner is completing its usual run of maintenance during the winter period. 2015 was a busy year and it takes a toll on the truck, and its OWNER LOL. We are gearing up for a great 2016 season, introducing some new menu items and many new locations. Stay tuned here for all the updates as we prepare to head out once the freezing temps and weather pass us by for Spring; right around the corner!!

Year in Review

Year in Review

From Chef Hamill, 12/8/15: Hello friends!! Wow what a great year it had been for the Rock&Roll Diner Food Truck!! We opened for business in the summer of 2012, and in our 3rd year we have really hit our stride now. First I want to thank all of the great staff that helped make everything happen this year: Traci, Brian, Jesse, Laura, Cara, Quali, Crisha, & Bekah. Thanks to the community for voting us #1 in the Roanoker Magazine Dining Poll this year. Thanks to the 2,000 fans following us on Facebook, and the over 500 followers on Twitter. Thanks to all of our friends down on Reserve Avenue, where we called home for the last 3 years when we are not out on festival dates and catering. Also, thank you to the City of Roanoke, the County of Roanoke, City of Salem, Christiansburg, Blacksburg, VTCRC, GO Fest, Strawberry Festival Roanoke, Strawberry Festival Gretna, Soaring Ridge Brewery, Parkway Brewing, Chaos Mt Brewing, Residence Inn Roanoke, Pepsi Bottling Co., US Foods, Big Lick Entertainment, Dr. Pepper Park, Martins Downtown, Sweet Donkey and all the other supporters of our food truck!! As winter approaches, we will be shutting down for a couple months to let the staff have some down time before we open up in March for the 2016 season. If you have an event in the coming year where you need a truck, let us know NOW so that we can get you on the schedule. Thanks again and we will see you soon!! Charlie Hamill, Owner, Executive Chef
