Country ham breakfast

My favorite breakfast place when I am in Roanoke. Love there country ham with red eye gravy. Reasonable price and great food. You can tell by the parking lot. If there is a line it moves quickly.

The Roanoker is a favorite. Great food, good and friendly service. Oh, and while you're waiting in line, there is shopping ! The biscuits are the best and if you've not tried their pecan waffles, you are missing out. They can't be found as good in any other place.

The Roanoker has been around for many years and has simple, always delicious food, especially their fried chicken. It's a great place to get an order to go for a group of family or friends. Good quality, good prices!

Great breakfast location. Very attentive staff with good wholesome food. Hosted 30 people for breakfast and all orders were delivered quickly and accurately. Have eaten other meals there but breakfast is their specialty.

First time there and wish it was closer to my home. 2 1/2 hours away doesn't make for an evening out to dinner but it is worth going to if you're in Roanoke or nearby. Delicious biscuits (seen on the Today Show), awesome country ham, wonderful prices and great servers. If you get a chance - go there. You won't... More

If you are in biscuits mood and looking for a good breakfast, then, don't miss The Roanoker. A very simple place, not fancy at all, but their biscuits are the best. A must for my family when down in beautiful Roanoke.

My wife and I have been having breakfast most Sundays at the Roanoker for over 20 years. Breakfast there is very good with a wide selection of things to choose from. This is a place to have a Southern breakfast. Eggs, biscuits, pancakes, waffles, bacon, ham, country ham, you name it they have it. Service is friendly, courteous, and efficient.... More

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.
