Ends January 27

ROANOKE, Va. - Get ready for some good food and even better deals, because Roanoke's annual Restaurant Week kicks off Friday. 

The goal is to introduce more customers to downtown dining. Dozens of restaurants are offering lunch deals for $10 and three-course dinner deals for $20 or $35.

Restaurant owners say the special week comes at a good time because business is typically slower in January. 

"It's really cool because it gives people the opportunity to spread out of their norm and to try new places and maybe find a new location where they can hang out at," said Dave Hirshman, the executive chef at  Billy's. 

"You can get a three-course meal and a pint of beer for under $30. ... It's a pretty good opportunity to come out and check out our menu without feeling too overwhelmed," said Jacob Reeves, general manager at Three Notch'd.
