Thelma's Chicken & Waffles was a real treat. Was in Roanoke for a pleasure trip and saw Thelma's featured on TripAdvisor so I had to give it a try.
The location is really cool in Downtown Roanoke with a bunch of cool retail shops around. Upon walking into the restaurant, they were very welcoming. Service was fantastic from start to finish.
We ordered Fried Green Tomatoes with Mo' Betta sauce as well as Chicken & Waffles. The Fried Green Tomatoes were a bit greasy, but that comes with the territory when eating comfort food. The fried chicken was, bar none, the best I've ever tasted. Crisp exterior, tender and moist inside. Prices were unbelievably reasonable (I would expect to pay much more for food that good).
I highly recommend Thelma's if you're in Roanoke.
