DINNER: We went for dinner just as we arrived in town after I had looked at the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were definitely not disappointed. The restaurant has been in business since the 1940's and is a restaurant locals frequent. I ordered the fried chicken special with whipped potatoes and green peas with pearl onions. Oh, it was some of... More

My husband and I ate breakfast there and it was delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. She had been there over 25 years. We loved the food so good, we went back for dinner that same evening. My husband ate the braised beef and he said it was awesome. I had the fried chicken livers and they were... More

I ordered the chicken chop suey on rice, I think it looked like it came from a can. The only thing I liked was the corn muffins, wouldn't go back for lunch, but their breakfasts are good.

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.
