Roanoke >Roanoker Restaurant Inc
Great breakfast at value prices. Visiting from out of town, we didn't want the usual breakfast (Waffle House, Cracker Barrel). In a tourist brochure, my husband and I saw The Roanoker listed for breakfast, so off we went. It was a Sunday morning, so we waited about 15 minutes (there is a sign up on the wall to show how long you will wait from certain spots in line). My husband had a egg/sausage and cheese bowl which he said was wonderful. It was definitely big and filling. He also had their famous biscuits and gravy. Even me, who is not normally a biscuit fan thought they were some of the best I've ever tasted. Yummy! I had a scrambled egg, sausage and pancake special with fried apples. These fried apples were one of the highlights. They had a rich taste and good texture - not soggy like other places. To top it off, I ordered a hot chocolate. It arrived with an accompanying bowl (yes bowl) of REAL whipped cream. Now that made my day! All that at a very reasonable price. The con - The wait staff wasn't the friendliest -- to us. I think you have to be a 'regular' because they certainly talked it up to people they knew. But who really cares, I had my husband to talk to and I really was too busy eating.
Just Good Food.
Dismissed by hip friends as a retiree diner, I was intrigued by the possibilities of good food at reasonable prices. I was not disappointed.
For under 13 dollars, two of us had succulent fried chicken, two flavorful veggies, fresh baked bread and endless glasses of good cold tea.
The homemade apple pie and ice cream were the best this big girl has ever eaten--anywhere.
The wait staff is friendly, on the ball, and totally unpretentious....I cannot wait to try breakfast there too!
