Roanoke Restaurant Ranked in OpenTable's Top 100 List

Roanoke, VA - A Roanoke restaurant is the only eatery in western Virginia to be included on the 2013 "OpenTable Top 100" list.

Alexander's in downtown made the list.

The group goes through more than 5,000,000 reviews covering 15,000 restaurants nationwide. The award recognizes restaurants with the best service in the country.

The owner credits her staff and the world wide web for the restaurant's recognition.

"I think this is part of what the Internet is doing for small businesses; that we are able to reach a wider audience and receive this sort of recognition for the work that we do in a smaller, out of the way area," said owner Bridget Meagher.

Alexander's, which is right next door to Corned Beef and Company, has been in business for 33 years now.

They are one of just four restaurants in Virginia to make the list.
