Sam’s Hot Dog Stand

Sam’s Hot Dog Stand

Sam’s Hot Dog Stand – 3 hot dogs for $5.51. The best one was the coleslaw dog (it’s the one with the bite out of it). I love that combo of hot dog and cold cole-slaw.  They charge the same price for every hot dog – no matter how many […]

Basili’s

Basili’s

The best gyro in town. It’s also the only gyro i’ve had in Richmond so far. But It was really good. I loved it. For $6.95 it was a very big portion of good food. It comes with rice and a vegetable.  The vegetable was spinach with other stuff.  It […]

Pho #14

Pho 79

$6.75 for any bowl of Pho (noodle soup) – BUT only $3.50 for Banh Mi sandwiches! The service here was great.  Good recommendations. http://plixi.com/photos/original/87873544 …It’s not a good-looking restaurant on the outside http://plixi.com/p/87868638

Boom Boom Burgers

Boom Boom Burgers closed with lots of press… _______________________________________________________________ I’m at Boom Boom Burgers. Have you tried it yet?   Not bad burgers -and I feel like they’re still working out a good system for things. I liked the cool local food, neighborhood burger-spot feel to this place. The beef […]

Cafe Ole

Cafe Ole

I wish Cafe Ole was nicer inside. For some reason, the big-fat American style burrito with rice and stuff has become a popular dish.  I’m not really that much of a fan of these burritos, but I’m even less of a fan of the food at Chipotle.  Cafe Ole is […]

Addis

Addis

I went to Addis with a friend for a lunch meeting.  We talked about orphans and politics in Haiti. Lunch was good. I was surprised to be the only customers in the restaurant at the time.  We got there at 12pm and left at 1.  No one came in that […]

Marty’s Grill

Marty’s Grill

For some reason, I avoid restaurants in strip malls.  I always feel like they have no character.  I’m not sure Marty’s wins in the character category, but the food is good and some of it is cheap. It’s in the Kroger plaza on Atlee Road in Mechanicsville.  Unfortunately, it’s big, […]

Sprout – closed

Sprout – closed

This restaurant is now closed…   Sprout – I ordered the “hoppin’ john dragon bowl” for $9. Not a very large portion but tasted very good. #rva Friendly staff but a little too busy to be able to keep up with service. I give it a B- and I’ll be […]

Sine

This is a very large Irish restaurant in Shockoe Slip.  It’s not the first place I think of when I want an Irish pub because it feels too large and college-bar-ish. I have been here a few times though and I haven’t really had any bad experiences there.

Sumo San

This Shockoe Bottom sushi restaurant has a very fun atmosphere, especially when the owner, Victor, is there.
