The Roanoker Restaurant has been a part of Butch Craft’s life since she was a teenager. It has survived a world war and now a pandemic. The family restaurant has a history of making its employees family. Many stay with the landmark for decades. It is one of the reasons customers keep coming back. They develop a relationship with their server over a good family meal.
Some of those employees are characters. For instance the Clarkson sisters, you never knew which one would come into work. They developed many of the recipes still used today, but originally they were not kept in a recipe book. The Clarkson sisters wrote them on the wall of the kitchen! All was almost lost when those recipes were painted over, that is when the owner took it upon himself to follow the sisters around until he had written down every recipe.
Craft talks more with Host Kathy Heberle about what makes the Roanoker so special.
