We wanted a local option for brunch during the week. Reviews were very positive. It felt homey and local but food was not very good. Biscuits were dry, sausage overcooked and potatoes lacked flavor. Eggs were pretty good.

Serves good traditional local food including a solid selection of side dishes like pinto beans. Options include pasta, sandwiches, etc.--Good variety. Family-friendly and budget-friendly with many options. Service extremely uncoordinated on this visit. Staff friendly if less than as responsive as they typically are.

Inside looks like one those old style places you went to as a kid back in the 70's that you can eat B, L, or D and it will be cheap but taste good. This one had that appeal, even had the container on the table that has the jelly packets stacked on either side. Anyway, went here for breakfast... More

Super Bowl Sunday Breakfast. Short line waiting to be seated. Line moved quickly and we were seated in our normal are with our regular waitress, Gail. Coffee served quickly. Order taken. Both ordered waffles with a side of link sausages. Waffle cooked crispy, the way we like them, and buttered. Added syrup. Great service. Great waffles. Broad menu of Southern... More

Family-friendly traditional establishment with comfort foods, casual atmosphere, ample seating. Service had slipped a bit in recent years but is still welcoming. Options include sandwiches, Southern side dishes, pastas, etc. Has small gift shop (overpriced often). Good for takeout also.

My husband and I were happy with the breakfast we ordered. We asked for standard items to be cooked in a different way, and the cooks there did a great job making it right! Good value at a good price.

I have eaten here several times while in Roanoke. Great plate lunches, sandwiches, and soups. It's been a go to spot in Roanoke for many years. Any time of day you will get a good meal with a friendly staff.

Came on a Saturday morning, so the line was long, but it moved quickly and we were seated in the back room after about 10 minutes. The server was fast with drink orders and the food came right out. My omelette was cooked well, but the bacon on the side was limp (bordering on undercooked). The "famous" biscuits we average.... More

Stopped in on a Friday night and was really disappointed in the level of service. We waited 10-15 minutes after being seated before a waiter came by to take our order and then we waited almost 40 minutes for our food. The restaurant was busy but there did not seem to be a sense of urgency at all. Food was... More

I have never been a big fan of the Roanoker. I have given it many chances, but it never seems to do it for me. The service is good and the menu has plenty of things to catch the eye, but I'm never really satisfied. Today I had the rib-eye. It was cooked the way I requested and tasted okay,... More
