In case you missed the news over the holiday weekend, the Roanoke Weiner Stand reopened in downtown Roanoke on Friday. Reporter Mason Adams has the story here.
The reopening came after several months of delays, which stemmed from disagreements between the restaurant owners and Center in the Square.
Mason reported that a lot of folks on the market on Friday were excited to see the place open again. Have you been down there for a hot dog? If so, how did you like the new place?
Also, as long as we are on the topic of newly opened restaurants, I want to make sure you are all aware that the Wasena City Tap Room is open at 806 Wasena Avenue in southwest Roanoke. According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, the hours are Monday through Wednesday, 11 a.m. to midnight; Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Also open are Bayou Lucy’s at 677 Brandon Avenue in Roanoke (click this link to see a menu for the Cajun/Creole place) and Sidewinders Steakhouse and Saloon at 16 Campbell Avenue downtown, which opens today for lunch, according to its Facebook page.
