  • Ipanema Grill

    5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    Ipanema Grill has a certain Brazilian atmosphere, a mural of a Rio de Janeiro cityscape, but it is not overdone. Like the Churrascaria Galope in Petrópolis, Brazil, it is a continuous service (rodizio) restaurant. For one set price you can choose any or all of the offered side dishes and a huge salad bar. At a churrascaria, customers turn a card-...

  • The Tobacco Company

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    I stopped in to the Tobacco Company on a trip through Richmond several years ago. I was very impressed by the huge, four-story building with its great open floor plan and balconies on top of balconies. Originally an abandoned warehouse, this is now one of the cornerstones of the city's downtown area. They have good food, along with a dance club,...

  • Papa Ningo

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    Found Papa Ningo Restaurant by mistake. I got lost trying to find another restaurant and ended up finding a restaurant that I now have started be a regular. I live in Chester, VA and I drive up there just for their food. The people are always happy and friendly! The place is a happy and exciting place. The food is excellent and well displayed. I...

  • Sugar & Spice

    5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    They call it soul food. But as my dad said, that's what every good German-American kid ate growing up before WW II. It's good old fashioned comfort food. The ambience is what you might expect. It's a bit outside Richmond, but it's worth the drive. The outside look of the restaurant surprised as we pulled up. The food is good, cheap, and plentiful....

  • Manila Manila!

    5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    This was the second international restaurant Nat took me to. It was not like anything I had ever seen before. The waitress gave us a free sample of some type of rice noodle soup while we waited for our order. The decor looked like it came straight from the Philippines. It may have because it is owned and staffed by native Filipinos. The atmosphere,...

  • Doña Mercedes Pupuseria

    Richmond Restaurants

    Doña Mercedes is rather far afield from downtown Richmond, the Fan, West Broad Street, and Midlothian Turnpike (where most of the better restaurants are found). If you fail to make a point of going a good ways south of downtown, you're missing a real treat. I will concede that this restaurant doesn't offer much in the way of atmosphere. I wasn't...

  • Dunn's Bar-B-Que

    4 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    In a time of constant change, some things remain constant. Dunn's Bar-B-Q has been at that very slot since 1935. The key word describing this restaurant is no frills. The restaurant is strictly takeaway with a window where customers place their orders and sit on a long wooden bench to wait for them to be filled. If you're one of those food snobs...

  • Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

    5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    When I first came to Richmond in the late 60's, this doughnut shop, Krispy Kreme was always there. One of the first free standing doughnut shop that I know of has been a icon fixture in Richmond, Virginia for years. When I was a child my parents were working late nights and would bring home hot doughnuts for a snack before we went to bed, or for...

  • Buz and Ned's Real Barbecue

    4 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    Very basic atmosphere for a BBQ place. Outside seating is the best - not a lot of room inside. Take out is available. What they do is great BBQ! The brisket is my favorite at Buz & Ned's - lean beef, thin sliced, tender and a great smoky flavor.

  • Nile Ethiopian Restaurant & Cafe

    5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    When I say finger lickin' good, I don't mean that certain chain of faux fried chicken restaurants, rather it's something much better. Nile Ethiopian Restaurant is a cozy, neighbourhood style restaurant in the Fan district near Virginia Commonwealth University. Usually, restaurants such is this in university neighbourhoods are affordably priced to...

    Richmond Restaurants

    Horrible Treatment of Elderly I took my 81 year old elderly mother today to Kitchen 64 in Richmond, VA 10/22/10 for lunch at 1:50pm. She is handicapped, and walks with a cane. We requested a booth to accommodate her bad back and poor walking legs. She suffers from the early stages of glaucoma (recently operated on) and a bad case of shingles. The...

  • Brasilian Cafe

    5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    Urszula (matcrazy0) studied the menu considerably and, with my help and Nat's, she finally took a decision. Urszula had some beef with either white cheese or sauce served with tortillas and rice with vegetables. We shared our meals, and I must admit that this, unique for me beef, tasted great. We paid $39.07 (with tax, add a tip) for 3 meals and...

  • The Village Cafe

    Richmond Restaurants

    The Village Cafe is a well-established neighbourhood cafe, the type of atmosphere national chains like Applebee's and T.G.I. Friday's try to emulate, but you can't mass-produce a feel. It came on my radar screen in the spring of 2008 when Food Network personality Guy Fieri covered the cafe in a segment of his programme "Diners, Drive-Ins, and...

  • Bottoms Up Pizza

    Richmond Restaurants

    Bottoms Up Pizza began in 1990 and moved to its current location in 1992. Year after year, Bottoms Up has been consistently awarded as not just Richmond's best pizza, but one of the city's favorite local restaurants. Their menu has a wide variety of signature pizzas, plus build your own pizzas, pizza pockets, wings and bread sticks, even burgers,...

  • Family Secrets Restaurant

    Richmond Restaurants

    Sometimes it pays to read the newspaper or else Family Secrets would have remained a secret. This Southern food restaurant is located at the north end of the Brook Hill Azalea Shopping Centre near the intersection of Azalea and Chamberlayne Avenues. The restaurant is owned by a native of Rocky Mount, North Carolina who really knows Southern food...

  • La Casita

    4 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    La Casita, "the little house" for those from Roxboro, is a small, quaint and out-of-the-way Mexican restaurant located on Richmond's Northside. It is all the more out of the way since the demise (and destruction) of the nearby Azalea Mall. The lack of table space and its comparative remoteness, not to mention the well-adorned (almost over the top)...

  • Richbrau

    4 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    Richbrau is Richmond's first microbrewery and one of the core establishments of the famous Shockoe Slip area. It features microbrewed beers of course, but it also has a dance club called Club Richbrau, a billiards pub, and a great menu in the restaurants. The same company also runs the somewhat upscale Tap House Grill next door. Their lunch menu...

    Recently moved here and trying to find a new decent restaurant. Walked in and immediately had attitude from the waitress. There is a sign that says "Please wait to be seated" so we walked in and stood there. The waitress came up rolled her eyes and looked at us like we were annoying her. So we went and found a table. We ordered our drinks, which...

  • Ukrop's Cafe

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    In every Ukrop's supermarket they have a grill with a modest range of things they can prepare for you whilst you wait and shop. If you don't have time to wait on them to custom make you a chicken sandwich or something, the deli offers a wider range of sandwiches and prepared foods such as fried chicken. From the grill, I like to get the chicken...

  • Galaxy Diner

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    Galaxy Diner is not an ordinary diner. This one had a futuristic space theme evident in the decor. Normally, I don't pay much attention to ambience, but I really enjoyed the atmosphere here together with the Carytown neighbourhood. The decor was "outta this world", but the service was a lacklustre. First of all, it took more than a half hour for...

  • Mi Hacienda Mexican Restaurant

    Richmond Restaurants

    The original plan was for Lee, Nathan, Paul, and me to meet up at Chesterfield Diner for supper as Lee and I headed to Southside Virginia for Memorial Day weekend in May, 2007, but they failed to tell us they closed at 8. So, we improvised and chose Mi Hacienda Restaurant a little further east on Route 360. The service was great and the waiter even...

  • Dot's Back Inn

    Richmond Restaurants

    Dot's Back Inn is a cozy restaurant in an out-of-the-way part of town. I only heard of it when I read where it got a visit from "Food Network" star Guy Fieri as he was filming his programme "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives." It really takes some doing to find it. On turning off the main drag (West Laburnum Avenue), you pass through several blocks of...

  • Aladdin Express

    Richmond Restaurants

    Aladdin Express is a Middle Eastern and Italian restaurant with lots of character and atmosphere. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but on the inside you feel like you walked into the Middle East. They play Middle Eastern music and there is an elabourate fountain in the middle of the dining area. The service was a little slow, but...

  • Jamaica House

    Richmond Restaurants

    Jamaica House is a small, unpretentious Jamaican restaurant in downtown Richmond near VCU where I went to school. I had never tried Jamaican food before and Nat convinced me they wouldn't serve me goat or anything like that. So, we went there one Friday night. It is in a sketchy neigborhood (3 days after we ate here, somebody got shot in front of...

  • Havana 59

    Richmond Restaurants

    This place was fast becoming a Richmond culinary institution when the flood waters of Hurricane Gaston in August, 2004 put this place out of business for more than a year. The good news is, the owners were determined to reopen as soon as they could. A large group of 15 of us reserved a big table here in March, 2007. At first, I wasn't too sure...

    Located on a quiet corner in the Fan District, Kuba Kuba is tucked into a former pharmacy/coffee shop. It has authentic and contemporary Cuban dishes including great Cuban coffee. They have an open kitchen and the interior is decorated in the vein of a neighborhood grocery store complete with latin food stuff and votive candles. It is small (10...

    A day before we left the USA Nat (b1bob) invited us to Extra Billy's restaurant located at the West End, 5 miles northeast of the downtown Richmond.

It was served with the following side orders to choose: - cole slaw, - baked beans, - applesauce, - potato salad, - French fries, - baked...

    If you want your hamburger to have fancy sauce and enjoy it in atmosphere, well, go to the Lemaire Restaurant in the Jefferson Hotel. They can probably hook you up. If you want good food fast, come here to Roy's Big Burger north of town in the Lakeside district. Keeping it simple has kept Roy's in business since 1935. You can have it to take away...

  • Byram's Lobster House

    Richmond Restaurants

    Byram's is without a doubt among the oldest restaurants in Richmond still in business. On eating here the first time, I can see why. Byram's isn't exclusively a steak and lobster house. Its diverse menu offers some Greek and Italian favourites as well. One reason I hadn't been until October, 2008 was its reputation for being upmarket and expensive....

  • Europa Mediterranean Cafe & Tapas Bar

    4 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    Okay, the food was good, but not outstanding. The customer service left much to be desired. I read in my hotel Travelhost magazine that one can "mention their ad and receive a free tapas order." No wanting to tear the ad out of the mag., leaving it for the next room occupant, I did not. I told the waiter (and manager) this but they would not honor...

  • Julep's (new southern cuisine)

    Richmond Restaurants

    Julep's is probably the nicest restaurant in Richmond. The atmosphere alone will blow you away right when you walk in the door. Everything is done is traditional polished wood, and the restaurant just gleams, even though the inside is somewhat dark, and dimly lit to add to the aura of the fine dining experience. If you happen to eat upstairs, you...

    Good stuff. It's nicely located next to Farmer's Market. We had lunch and then went to the market for some sweets. It's traditional diner fare and it's very affordable. Our party had reubens, burgers, and a club. They were all very yummy. We went there after seeing historical sites downtown. I highly recommend it for a nice diner lunch. Burgers....

    Richmond Restaurants

    A new Southern-style restaurant opened just east of Richmond at the relatively new Dominion Village shopping centre. The other soul restaurants in town (Sugar & Spice, Family Secrets, and Croaker's Spot) are all in older buildings and are not quite as bright inside. However, on walking in, you could smell the love that soul food requires coming out...

The restaurant is located at the Village Shops at the corner of Three Chopt and Ridge Roads in the West End. The atmosphere doesn't go over the top either on the outside or the inside. The service was attentive and as fast as it could...

  • 3rd Street Diner

    Richmond Restaurants

    The best way to enjoy a day of exploring a city is to make sure you have a good healthy breakfast. This will ensure that you have enough calories to burn through when those excruciating walks up the hills of Richmond start beating you down. Nat (B1Bob) and I decided to give the 3rd Street Diner a shot for our morning fuel. After all, anything that...

  • Anthony and George's

    Richmond Restaurants

    Anthony and George's is a steak and seafood restaurant in Richmond's north side on Staples Mill Road next to the Amtrak station. In fact, Anthony and George's benefits from the frequent significant delays experienced by passangers waiting to leave and folks waiting to meet someone at the train station. There really isn't much ambience to this...

  • Sin é Irish Pub and Restaurant

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Richmond Restaurants

    In Gaelic, "Sin é" means "this is it". If you want good food at a reasonable price in Richmond's Shockoe Slip, Sin é is it! It really has the look and feel of an Irish pub. I have passed by this place many times on the way to other eateries in Shockoe Slip. The occasion to eat here finally came when Lee gipper84 graduated from university. The...

  • Tarrant's Cafe

    Richmond Restaurants

    Tarrant's occupies such a small place along West Broad Street that you have to look hard not to miss it as you go west. It's located on the borderline between the rather dodgy part of downtown to the fashionable area nearest the V.C.U. campus. Outside, it has the appearance of a friendly neighbourhood eatery. Inside, it looks like that at the bar,...

  • Bill's Barbecue

    Richmond Restaurants

    Bill's Barbecue is a regional chain of barbecue restaurants. They have mainly stand-alone restaurants, but there are some food court booths at Virginia Centre Commons and The Shops at Willow Lawn. Minced pork barbecue, large fries (chips to my friends in the U.K.), and limeade. The limeade isn't made from concentrate, but rather from carbonated...

  • The Phoenician Restaurant

    Richmond Restaurants

    The Phoenician is a relatively new (since 2007) Lebanese restaurant on Broad Street. Lee Mitchell took me here for my birthday. The restaurant is really well decorated. The service is attentive and prompt. The prices are reasonable enough that it doesn't have to be a special occasion to eat out here. They're open for lunch and supper Monday through...

  • Little Mexico

    Richmond Restaurants

    I had never heard of Little Mexico restaurant until Lee told me about dollar taco night (every Monday). Being a tightwad, that got my attention. Aside from that, Little Mexico has the look and feel of a neighbourhood cafe. Because the weather was mild for early to mid July, we ate outdoors in the courtyard. It is in the recently revitalised Uptown...

  • Millie's Diner

    Richmond Restaurants

    Style Weekly had it right when it declared Millie's Diner a "snob's nightmare" because it has no pretense. It is literally a neighbourhood hole in the wall and a wee bit off the beaten path from the restaurant row in Shockoe Slip and Bottom. In fact, it is so far east on Main Street that it is almost in Chimborazo Park. Furthermore, it's so small...

  • Grapevine

    Richmond Restaurants

    I was taken here for my birthday in October, 2008. I had been keen for some time to try this other Greek restaurant, but never got around to it. Oftentimes, restaurants in upmarket locales are better across the board, but that's not always the case. On entering, you could see that aesthetically it tried to capture the Greek theme. On looking at the...

    Hillbilly Red's is a barbecue restaurant just east of Richmond International Airport. In fact, if you want to make this the first place you eat on landing in Richmond, turn right at the airport entrance and proceed 1 mile (1.6 km) and it will be on the right just past Roma's Italian Restaurant and Golden Skillet. It is an easy place to get into and...
