Stopped in tonight while passing thru. Really Good Food. My waitress could not really answer many questions about various items on the menu so I went with the house special. It was delicious. Will stop by again when in the area.

Recently visited Roanoke College and Mac and Bob's was recommended. We had excellent service and the food was delicious. Try the crab dip appetizer. Menu offers something for everyone. Salads, sandwiches, calzone, lots of options. Nice place for lunch or dinner. Offers reasonable prices.

We had the chicken salad plate, French onion soup, quiche and Ceasar salad and every was delicious! Wait staff was prompt, courteous and accommodating. Chicken plate came on slices of tomato with cottage cheese and fruit. Perfect combo. Would definitely come back.
