A Roanoke tradition that travels! Crispy bacon, fluffy biscuits, sweet tea - - you can't go wrong with the South in your mouth.

I have been coming to this wonderful restaurant for 17 years .... nearly always for their breakfasts. They offer all kinds of breakfast plates, and on Monday through Fridays and I think on Sundays too they offer something called "The Stimulus Package." Four different entrees (2 eggs counts as ONE entree, as does two biscuits, for example) for a price... More

Always busy, mostly older crowd. Specials are good, just plain home style cooking. Bar drinks, not so hot. Best bacon, lettuce tomato sandwich in town. I don't care for their fries so I opt for a side of potato salad. Breakfast good too.

This past Thanksgiving we secured the assistance of the Ronaoker for some of our trimmings to the dinner. Honestly, I was skeptical at first, but was assured they were as good as homemade. Well they were better! (Sorry Mom!) Their stuffing and gravy were wonderful and better than homemade, especially when you consider no cooking! We also enjoyed the Waldorf... More

The Roanoker Restaurant has been a Roanoke institution for over 60 years. It has long been the standard for great food three meals a day, a family-friendly atmosphere and a convenient location right off I-581 near Towers Mall. Although the prices have increased over those 60+ years (original menus in the lobby show entrees with sides priced at 50 cents),... More

This is a hot spot for the elderly crowd. My husband and I do fit that description...but we are young for our years. The food was serviceable, not outstanding. My salad was iceberg lettuce, a few veggies, grilled chicken. My husband had turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. The server was excellent, efficient and friendly.
