Foursquare Tips

  • If you come to the Star City and don't eat at Thelma's, shame and twenty years of bad food on you!!
  • Don't bother. the service sucks. We waited 15 minutes and were NEVER even acknowledged by the wait staff even though several walked past. We left and went to another spot.
  • Awesome fried chicken & waffles! They let you know right up front they fry the chicken to order, not sure why people complain about the wait. This is hot, fresh chicken. Fantastic service & food!
  • Only chicken and waffle place that is this big. Anywhere... Love this place
  • The chicken and waffles, as you would expect given its on the marquee, are amazing. Do what they do best!
  • 9. How much is my scale off by?
  • Waffle is laced with cinnamon! So slight, but huge difference. Gravy is good but not what you'd expect, corn puddin' in pretty sweet but great.
  • I used to recommend Thelma's to everyone but it has become a DISASTER. Service is bad, it takes forever, and they run out of food. Find another place to eat downtown!
  • Yummy but slooooow service.
  • This place is the best! Everything on the menu is excellent. Try the chili mac and cheese.
  • Amazing customer service and killer home cooked southern dishes
  • Had a great meal and good service,must visit Star City
  • The waffles were cold and the chicken needed a few more minutes to cook. The service is slow! Very SLOW!
  • Such an awesome place to go for a great waffle in Roanoke
  • Service and food can be hit or miss depending on the day and the section you're seated in. Try the cornbread waffles!
  • Chicken AND waffles!
  • Great family.
  • Good food but slow service...
  • Awesome home cooking!
  • I always get the fried boneless breast with mashed potatoes and corn and gravy on the side. Cut up the chicken and mix everything together... It's heaven on your plate.
