“YOU NEED TO GO! AWESOME FOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2010

If you're looking for good homecooking--you need to go here. We stopped in today and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant itself is nothing fancy...but the food and service are AMAZING!

We all had the chicken (wings) and waffles. It came with potatoes that were to die for. The waffles were light and fluffy. The chicken was fried to perfection! While we were there, we heard several other customers begging for recipes, so we know we were not the only ones that loved the food. I was stuffed halfway through my dish, but it was sos good that I had to keep shoving it in.

Not only was the food amazing, but the service was equally amazing. You could tell that they appreciated your business and welcomed you with a smile. When we walked in, the waitress said, "Have you been here before?". We responded "No". She then said, "Well, welcome to the family!". I loved the genuine service we received and will stop there everytime I go to Roanoke and will tell everyone I know about it.

Oh, did I mention that the 3 of us ate for less than $30? That made it even better. :)

“Home Cooking and Family Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2010

We arrived just before closing and were greeted like long lost family. Great freshly prepared breakfast at 9pm. It is worth the trip. Thanks Thelma.

“The Best Fried Chicken Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2010

This place was amazing. You felt like you are part of their family. Which is exactly what they told you when you sat down. The service was amazing, and the food was even better. The chicken was fried to perfection. Crispy outside, extremely juicy inside. Perfect flavor. The waffle was great as well. We will eat here every time we are in Roanoke.
