This was the best home cooking that I have had in a very long time!!! True Southern cooking!!! We had two apps- the onion rings and the fried green tomatoes!!! They were both so good!!! Then I moved on the waffle and chicken tenders with the best hash browns. This place is great but if you are watching what you eat do not go there!

I've never had a good experience here. Today I thought I'd try again, wish I hadn't. Service was the worst we've had. It took 1 hour for us to get our food and we both had the basic dish. i had to search for silverware as we weren't provided any. The food isn't anything special. Frozen chicken tenders and basic fried potatoes. There is some sort of film on everything in the place. Gross. I get the novelty of it and we are big supporters of local business but I cannot recommend this one.

Great stop in the Roanoke City Market area for most any meal. Reasonably-priced, freshly-prepared comfort foods--yes, chicken and waffles, but also awesome mashed potatoes and other Southern food options. Friendly, casual service from servers who seem to take pride in the restaurant. Spacious seating area for downtown is a bonus.

We came off the Blue Ridge Parkway on our motorcycles on a Sunday afternoon and found this restaurant by chance. There were six of us and I think we all had a variety of meals. I had a whiting (fish) sandwich that didn't even need tarter sauce and side of the Mac and cheese. My husband and I fought over it! Everyone really enjoyed what they ordered.
We ate in the bar area, watched sports on the TVs and just had a really nice time.
Great service and very reasonable prices. Servers were very gracious about separate checks too.

As a frequent visitor to Roanoke, Thelma's has been on my list for a long time. Finally got there and will definitely go back. Four different entrees at our table and every one was a hit. The service was outstanding. Very pleasant atmosphere - very welcoming. Can't wait to make a return visit.
