Maria from Salem, VA
The food is really good! If you don't like what they are serving in Commons you can always go to The Cavern
Renee from Roanoke, VA
The food is excellent. There are so many different options. No matter what is the main course of the time, there is always a pizza bar, deli bar, pasta bar, fried rice bar and cereal bar open. It is hard to get tired of eating the same thing when you can eat differently everyday.
Ryan from Roanoke, VA
Almost everything in Salem can be found on Main Street. There are a variety of restaurants, a health food store (great if you're a vegan like me), CVS, Wal-Mart, and Goodwill, to name a few. If you're looking for more nightlife or shopping, you can head over to downtown Roanoke or the Tanglewood mall. There's a Sheetz that's open 24/7 within walking distance, perfect for all-nighters.
Felicity from Stafford, VA
Chef Bob and the rest of the Commons crew create awesome meals three times a day. The staff is very friendly, creating themed meals throughout the year that cause long lines. There are always Gluten-free and vegetarian options, although these are not always the most appetizing choices.
Rachel from Salem, VA
The foods really good! The specialty nights are great! King Crab Leg Night is amazing, as well as the Christmas and Valentine's Day dinners!
