First found this gem a few years ago and now make sure to stop bye whenever I am in the area. Great food, good prices, friendly service and lots of rich history. Truly a must for any hot dog lover and those who just want a good all american meal.

I had a marvelous bacon cheeseburger with fries at Roake's the other day. The service was fast, the price was reasonable, and the burger and fries excellent. Although Roake's is short on ambience, the food more than makes up for it.

We were truck hunting with our son-in-law and pulled in here on the spur of the moment. Didn't realize there was seating inside. We all had hamburgers. One of the best I've ever had.

I always stop and have a Coney-dog when I'm in the area. Ask for the fries a little crispy.. much better that way.

Found out their coney sauce recipe. Couldn't believe after 25+ years that I finally found it. It is so simple and simply surprising! Would I give it up? I think......
