    We enjoy your blog, and restaurant reviews. We have made the Blue Apron a family favorite after a first visit based upon your review/recommendation. It was a big hit with my L.A. based foodie adult children and their spouses. When you have an opportunity, you should visit and review the Mockingbird Cafe and Bakery in Christiansburg, VA. It’s a wonderful new French bakery with a nice little lunch-time cafe trade as well.
    Their facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/MockingbirdCafeBakery

    Dear Jes, Thank you for the wonderful job you did about the gourmet burgers for The ROANOKER Magazine.
    W are so glad you feel we have the #1 gourmet burger in town. We are wondering what we would need to do to obtain a copy of the pix you took of the burger? Any time we used it, we would, of course, credit you. Thanks for your help. Warmly, Diane Elliot, Owner, Local Roots – A Farm to Table Restaurant

      WOW! My husband and I came to the same conclusion about the LR burger, hence our frequent stop-in after Saturday night bike dates! We think the LR burger is the best in town! Now I know we’re right if Jes thinks so too! :)
