In the late 1800s, Roanoke was a bustling center of trade and entertainment. Established in 1881 when the Texas Pacific Railroad came through the area, this Denton County city was named by a railroad surveyor for his home in Virginia. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the town also has been dubbed the "Unique Dining Capital of Texas" by the Texas Legislature. It's home to more than 40 restaurants including the original world-famous Babe's Chicken Dinner House.
