UPDATE: Roanoke attorney David Tenzer, who has been helping Thelma’s to reopen since the temporary closure, has also confirmed that the restaurant will reopen tomorrow (Saturday). Tenzer said there has been no change in ownership. END UPDATE.
Steve Musselwhite, the owner of the building that houses Thelma’s Chicken & Waffles at 315 Market Street in downtown Roanoke, said Thursday that the restaurant will reopen Saturday morning.
“My understanding is that they’ll be reopening,” he said. “I’m getting a check this afternoon.”
Musselwhite said he could not comment on why the restaurant closed or what has transpired since then because he doesn’t really know.
“I think all’s well that ends well, and I think this is going to end well,” he said.
I will update this entry if I am able to gather any more information about the temporary closure. But for now, it looks like everybody will be able to get their chicken and waffles fix soon.
