Janice’s Kitchen

Burger, Fries and a Drink $5.95

Janice’s Kitchen, at 3319 Williamsburg Rd. in Richmond, has a decently priced lunch special.  $5.95 for a double cheeseburger, fries and a drink.

The food was ok, but the its worth the visit for the experience alone.  The burgers seem to be frozen patties and the clam strips (I just tried a couple) were a little too chewy.
This is the kind of place that reminds me that Richmond, VA is a cool place to live.  Most of the customers here are clearly East End regulars.  Little attention is paid to ambience and frills- and sometimes that is a good thing.  Earning friendly service from a place like this should be worn as a badge of honor.  I liked it a lot.  I give the food a 5 out of 9, but I give the whole experience an 8 out of 10.
