ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Roanoke’s Texas Tavern was just named the top diner in Virginia by the Food Network. The tiny joint that only holds 10 red stools, has served the Star City’s downtown since 1930.
It’s known for its shorthand lingo for menu times like “bowl” for a bowl of chili and “hot” for a hot dog.
“Texas Tavern is also locally known as Roanoke’s Millionaire’s Club; everyone is treated like a millionaire here, and food is dished up with a side of banter (and a hearty helping of BS) from the guys behind the counter,” according to a Food Network post.
The restaurant has been owned by the same family for four generations. While the Tavern receives national attention, its a well-known favorite in the area. Check out this story on the restaurant’s 89th birthday celebration to learn why.
