Good place for intergenerational meals--a little something for everyone. Lots of sides, sandwiches, traditional meals. Well-known for biscuits. Comfortable, casual atmosphere. Reasonable prices on most items. Friendly service. Nothing "new" but good. Convenient to Towers Mall area.

This was a Southern breakfast if I've ever had one... and I grew up in the hills of Tennessee. The biscuits are buttery, pillowy and absolutely delicious! I could have eaten 10 of them!

Excellent breakfast option. Good menu selection, great service, very friendly atmosphere. I tried their sausage gravy, very tasty but I wish someone would put some sausage in their gravy. Biscuits were excellent. I will definitely come back. Always a good indication.

The Roanoker has been part of this city for over 30 years. Great coffee flows, but for me it's all about the biscuits and gravy. None better!
