What You'll Get
Comfort food massages the esophagus, consoles the stomach, and talks on the phone for hours with your grumpy colon. Let spongy waffles dry your tearful tracts with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of comfort fare at Thelma's Chicken & Waffles. A warmly welcoming establishment, Thelma’s serves homestyle takes on a variety of menu items, such as chicken, burgers, fried fish, and all-day breakfast. Enjoy the signature savor of signature entrees, which include the chicken tenders ($6.99) and boneless breast ($8.49) served with fried potatoes and a belgian waffle amid the background hum of gospel and soul tunes. Sample one of Thelma's homemade sides ($1.99 each), such as mac 'n' cheese, corn pudding, and green beans, or have combination platters and flapjacks jockey for position in front of hungry eyes alongside a bevy of breakfast sandwiches ($1.39–$4.79) and omelettes such as the meat-intensive Big Joby ($8.99). Each meal will leave diners content, rejuvenated, and ready to take on tedious tasks such as teeth brushing or notifying a best friend that his car is currently on fire.
- But I liked how the "feel" of the interior reminded me of good Southern diners I frequented while living in North Carolina -- you knew the reason to go there was the food. Since Thelma's had been open less than a week when I was there, it would be unfair to judge the emptiness of the place during a weekday lunch. Eating at Thelma's was like being in on a secret. – Wade Anderson, Roanoke Times
- Then, the meal arrived, and after the first bite I realized this would be a special treat. – Steve, Noke News
