This sign has been hanging on the front door at Thelma’s Chicken & Waffles in downtown Roanoke for the past couple of days.
Some readers have asked me why the place is closed, but unfortunately I can’t answer that question yet. I have placed multiple calls to the restaurant, which are all answered by a strange automated message that invites me to enter my “remote access code.”
If they are taking a vacation or are closed for repairs or remodeling or something, I would hope they’d leave a greeting explaining that on their answering machine.
I attempted to call one of the owners at home and hopefully will hear back from her soon. If any Thelma’s folks are reading this blog entry, please let us know when you will be reopening!
Hopefully it will be soon.
