#5 - Don Ho’s

We start our journey in the northern part of Roanoke County at Don Ho’s. It’s been a staple of the community for more than two decades now.

Donald Sutliff and staff specialize in southern comfort food - ranging from corn bread to gravy and sandwiches like the Big Daddy. You can finish it off with a delicious slice of peanut butter pie.

It’s a party in your mouth, while the party continues out back in Don’s lounge!

#4 - The Place

Aloha Eddie and his sidekick, Robin, are nicknamed ‘Eats’ and ‘Treats’ at The Place in Christiansburg.

Their mission beyond food is to bring a smile to your face. You can’t help but smile when you try a number of shaved ices or home-cooked meals from this dynamic duo.

Classic sandwiches, entire pizzas and whoopie pies are a testament to their versatility and talent in the kitchen.

#3 - West Salem Diner

A familiar spot in downtown Salem got a makeover in recent months.

Jo Jo Soprano and his crew are now filling the void with the newly-opened West Salem Diner.

Early success starts early in the morning with happy hour!

Get a hold of a mimosa flight before graduating to classics like Eggs Benedict or their Smash Burger.

#2 - Poppy’s in Christiansburg

The Williams brothers took a pile of dirt and turned it into something special in Christiansburg - Poppy’s!

They’ve brought back what was once popular at Custard Corner, from signature ice cream to hot dogs to their special - the Stormie!

#1 - The Chilled Spot

Last but not least, it was faith, love and rolled ice cream that brought the Tamale’s together at The Chilled Spot in Rocky Mount.

New in 2023, they’re taking their talents on the road.

The team rolls over 23 flavors of ice cream with master precision.

Catch them on the road as they serve up rolled ice cream, milkshakes and chillatas in the New Year.
