Trip to Roanoke, VA: The Homeplace

We took a trip up to Roanoke, Virginia for a couple days in June but I forgot to post any pictures from the trip! I figured since it's going on October it's probably about time. I'll break these pictures into two posts so they're not gigantic. 

We used to live up in Roanoke in my elementary school days so I have fond memories of that city. The first place we went was The Homeplace restaurant and it was as delicious as my memories of it. It's an old house in the mountains turned into a tasty restaurant. They serve you family style, all-you-can-eat. It's one of those places where you always leave uncomfortably full, but also super satisfied. We went on a Thursday so they also had pulled pork barbecue as a meat option. Clearly it was necessary to get three different meats. It was so incredibly tasty. The scenery up there is gorgeous too. It was overcast and slightly drizzly, but it was still great to be among the mountains again.



I hope you guys are having a nice Sunday!

Gorgeous photos! I really want to go to Virginia or Tennessee one of these days. I've never been to either, despite having family in TN. It's so beautiful and I just have this urge to see more of America than just the coasts.

Lovely photos. Nothing quite like fog rolling over the mountains to set the mood!

Exactly the type of restaurants I like to frequent. And the surroundings look just aaaaamazing too. I wish there were real mountains down here, but nope, the landscape is as flat as it gets. xo
