Part southern restaurant, part Italian restaurant, part sandwich shop. When all those parts are put together, Vic?s Family Restaurant is 100% family dining. Vic?s son, Steve, now runs the place, which still has the original terrazzo tile floors and rustic wood booths from the 1930s. The eatery?s popular broasted chicken pairs with macaroni and cheese bites and slaw. Also, New York?style pizzas and pastas share the menu with meatball subs and reubens.
With a commitment to using healthy recipes, the chefs at the Holiday Inn's casual eatery Elephant Walk Restaurant & Lounge have put together a menu of internationally inspired dishes. Some are comfort-food classics, including cheeseburgers with homemade potato chips and quesadillas stuffed with veggies and jack cheese. Others are a bit more elegant, such as filet mignons, wild-mushroom ravioli, or chicken cordon bleu layered with swiss cheese. The dessert list is similarly diverse, including everything from tiramisu to a new york cheesecake that pays a lot to rent the plate it's served on.
Though nestled within a quiet stretch of trees that thickly border the shores of Smith Mountain Lake, Waller’s boisterously entertains its guests with live music, events, and an eclectic collection of eats. The menu starts out with a Mexican flair—quesadillas and nachos bulked up with BBQ chicken and pork—but quickly casts a wider net to include Angus chuck burgers and buffalo-chicken sandwiches. Boar’s Head meats insulate a selection of wraps from overzealous lake breezes, and French translations of italian paninis speak to palates through monte cristos sprinkled in confectioners sugar and croque-monsieurs blanketed with provolone.
Several nights a week, live entertainment thrills the crowd as they nosh in the dining room or out on the dockside patio. Former band frontman Brent Clineville emcees karaoke on Wednesdays, amateur musicians take the stage for open-mic night on Thursdays, and the weekends host a rotating selection of live bands.
Driven by chefs, loaded with crepes and empanadas, and running on unleaded salsa, the sky-blue Noke Truck is hard to miss. It prowls the streets of Roanoke throughout the day, searching for customers who are hungry and a little bit adventurous. You'll need to be both to fully appreciate the cuisine of Claudia and Juan Urrea, who revel in the eclectic culinary traditions of their native Colombia.
Colombian food is unique among its South American counterparts for its creative blending of Latin and European influences. Noke Truck finally brings this flavorful fusion to North Carolina, where the Urreas craft tacos, crepes, and empanadas for breakfast, lunch, and dessert. If your boss won't let you use your drone during office hours, you can track the food truck's location online via Facebook and Twitter.

Also contributing to the homey atmosphere is the open kitchen window at each Famous Anthony's location, which lets visitors get a good look at all the hard work, hustle, and magic wooden spoons that go in to every meal.
