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.

Lived in Roanoke many years ago. Remembered the restaurant and how it was known for breakfast. Even thought it is in new location the food, ambiance, value and staff friendliness is even better than I remember. It is worth you while to look it up on Garmin or other locator software and give it a try. You will not be... More

These folks have been doing a fantastic job of preparing a great variety of really delicious food for quite a long time. Their menu includes something for everyone, and the portions are quite ample. All of this is served by a very friendly staff in a comfy decor.

I went for the renowned biscuits and gravy. Very good, although truthfully I'm not a connoisseur of that type of food. Good coffee with free refills.

My pasta dish was just cooked noodles with melted cheese and overcooked vegetables. My fiance got a club sandwich and fries and was not impressed. The... More
