Virginia Restaurants

  • The Tobacco Company

    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,...

  • Ipanema Grill

    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-...

  • 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,...

  • Papa Ningo

    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

    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....

    more
  • Buz and Ned's Real Barbecue

    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.

  • Richbrau

    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...

  • Kuba Kuba

    Richmond Restaurants

    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...

  • 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...

  • Nile Ethiopian Restaurant & Cafe

    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...

  • Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

    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...

  • Croaker's Spot

    Richmond Restaurants

    I had intended to take Lee to Croaker's Spot when I discovered it on touring Jackson Ward in September, 2006 with Christian. In December of that year, Lee and I did stop in here, but only for some sweet tea. The chance to take a full meal here finally presented itself when Paul Negrin and I attended a meeting of the Richmond City Republican party...

  • La Casita

    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)...

    more
  • Dunn's Bar-B-Que

    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...

  • Extra Billy's

    Richmond Restaurants

    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. We all ordered Extra Billy's hickory smoked pork barbecue. It was served with the following side orders to choose: - cole slaw, - baked beans, - applesauce, - potato salad, - French fries, - baked...

  • 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...

    more
  • 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...

  • 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...

    more
  • Bogart's

    Richmond Restaurants

    Bogart's is a neighborhood restaurant in the Fan District (so called because the streets "fan out" west from the university (VCU). It used to be just a regular local kind of hangout, with college waitresses, average food, but a nice atmosphere. Bogart's theme, jukeboxes at every table (which no longer work), and old movie posters on the...

  • Cha Cha's Cantina

    Richmond Restaurants

    Lee and I tried Cha Cha's Cantina, a more upmarket Mexican restaurant in Shockoe Slip along East Cary Street. The weather was uncommonly nice for early July, so we elected to eat on the well-appointed patio complete with Christmas lights and an old army Jeep. The inside of the restaurant is reminiscent of a typical Mexican cantina. There are live...

  • 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...

    more
  • Rostov's Coffee and Tea

    Richmond Restaurants

    Not so much a coffeehouse as a place to buy coffee and tea (although you can purchase beverages as well), Rostov's roasts their own coffee beans in a small roaster that sits right in the store! There is quite the variety of beans but the best would be whatever they're roasting that day. They also make their own teas including some creative blends....

  • Zorba's Greek and Italian Restaurant

    Richmond Restaurants

    GREAT FOOD WITH GREAT VARIETY. THEY SERVE GREEK AND ITALIAN Absolutely my favorite restuarant in Richmond LONDON BROIL WITH A WILD MUSHROOM SAUCE REDUCTION ON THE SIDE THE MEAT IS JUICY AND TENDER, THE SAUCE..... THEN YOU HAVE FRESH OVEN BAKE BREADS MADE DAILY

  • Brasilian Cafe

    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...

  • 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...

  • Couscous

    Richmond Restaurants

    I discovered this place after a long, hard walk up and down Monument Avenue, to the Jefferson Hotel, and to the Virginia War Memorial. Christian and I stopped here for refreshments. We noticed the sign on the sidewalk on the way down Franklin Street to the Jefferson Hotel and considered stopping here on the way back to the car. We came in there and...

    more
  • 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....

  • Palacio Latino

    Richmond Restaurants

    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...

    more
  • Nacho Mama's

    Richmond Restaurants

    Nacho Mama's originally had one location on Cary Street. It is funkier and a little more playful in terms of atmosphere (about right for Carytown) than at most other Mexican restaurants. Now there is a Nacho Mama's Express on the Boulevard which is mainly takeaway. They opened up a third location in Mechanicsville on Bell Creek Road. The walls are...

  • 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...

    more
  • 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...

  • Kitchen 64

    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...

  • Carini's

    Richmond Restaurants

    I read some of the previous reviews and all I can saw is that they are completely wrong. The food was so good, service was excellent, management was great, they also came through to check on each table to make sure everyone was happy with the service and food. I also have to say this place is one of the cleanest places we had ever been to....

  • Lucille's Southern Cuisine

    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...

  • Sin é Irish Pub and Restaurant

    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...

    more
  • 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,...

  • Texas de Brazil

    Richmond Restaurants

    What more could a Texan ask for than a little piece of home when travelling? As I typically like to venture out into the world of the unknown while on a trip, I went against this judgement with my friend Nat, on his suggestion of a new restaurant to the Richmond area, Texas de Brazil. Now I know that since I live in Texas where the original...

  • 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...

  • El Potrillo

    Richmond Restaurants

    The Pizza Hut on East Laburnum Avenue closed down, but this new Mexican restaurant has taken its place. With the bad luck I've had with Mexican restaurants which are not La Casita or Nacho Mama's, I was wary of going out on a limb. However, I'm glad I went to El Potrillo ("the colt" for those from Roxboro). The place was very tastefully decorated....

  • 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...

  • Peking

    Richmond Restaurants

    There are several Peking restaurants across the Richmond area including Chester, Mechanicsville, and Midlothian. The restaurants are all well-appointed and the service is fast especially when there isn't a crowd. The portions are so large that you don't go away hungry. They have a great all-you-can eat buffet on Sunday afternoons. Sometimes a group...

  • Europa Mediterranean Cafe & Tapas Bar

    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...

  • Bev's

    Richmond Restaurants

    After supper, Christian and I went to tour Carytown. I had wanted some good ice cream, or better yet, gelato all day long. From previous tours, I knew Bev's Ice Cream was a little ways down the road near the Byrd Theatre. So, the plan was to see what they had. I wanted lemon ice cream. They didn't have that on the menu, but I found their pumpkin...

  • River City Diner

    Richmond Restaurants

    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....

  • Anthony's Pizza

    Richmond Restaurants

    Back when I was 10 years old, Anthony's at Henrico Plaza was the place to go for pizza and other Italian side dishes. At that time, I bumfuzzled the waitresses by eating an adult portion of veal parmagiana. No doubt, I would have given Anthony's 5/5. That was when Anthony's was under the management of Italian immigrants and Henrico Plaza shopping...
