Although I don’t claim to be an expert in restaurants, I do love food. For anyone who’s looking for a great place to eat in Roanoke, here are ten restaurants that I think everyone should try (in no particular order). There might even be a hidden gem in my list that not too many people know about.
Carlos Brazilian International Cuisine – This restaurant has some really good steaks. It’s more of an evening dining experience, and the interior dining room has a magnificent view of the Roanoke Valley.
Beamer’s 25 – This is a low-key spot located downtown that serves burgers and pizza. They have a full bar as well. The restaurant was spun off by Frank Beamer, who is the ex-head coach of the Virginia Tech football team.
Local Roots Restaurant – This is a newer restaurant that serves American food. It’s located in the Grandin area.
The River and Rail – This restaurant serves American food with a southern twist. It spins off of the Roanoke River and the history of railroad in our area. If you’re looking for a cool southern experience right on the river, this is the place to visit.
Lucky Restaurant – This French-American restaurant has a lot of variety in their menu.
Scratch Biscuit Company – This is a really good breakfast and brunch spot. As the name implies, they make their biscuits from scratch right onsite.
Table 50 – Located in downtown Roanoke, Table 50 is more of an evening dining spot, but they also do lunch.
Texas Tavern – This is a very unique spot. Don’t expect a fancy fine dining restaurant—it’s a very old, tiny building stuck on the side of a much taller structure. I think it only seats 8 people at a time. It might not be the cleanest place, but they serve some good food.
Alejandro’s – This is another downtown spot that serves Mexican food. What I really love about them is their salsa bar. If you want some good eats, check out this spot.
Mission Barbecue – This place is located by Towers Shopping Center. They have several locations, but it’s just a really great restaurant to get barbecue in the Roanoke area.
