Reviews on American food in Doswell, Virginia, United States. Doswell is an unincorporated community in Hanover County in the Central Region of the U.S. Commonwealth of Virginia. Originally called Hanover Junction, it was located on the Virginia Central Railroad, which later became part of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad (C&O) at a crossing of the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad, a north-south route. Both railroads are now owned by CSX Transportation, although the former Virginia Central line is leased to a short-line carrier, Buckingham Branch Railroad.

The food is surprisingly good, so it is popular with the locals. Really can't go wrong here, but around dinnertime you are likely to have a wait. Worth it though. The staff are always friendly, albeit they usually are "in the weeds." Even though it is a sports bar, the televisions aren't obnoxious. It doesn't really feel like a typical sports bar.

WW! This place has selection! Wines and OTT BEERS, plus unique nibbles for carryout OR if you prefer have a seat in the accommodating, relaxed back room where the friendly waiters will pull or pour your favorite choice. We ordereda sampler slate that was ample appetizers for six. Couldn't resist getting a Cranberry-Pistachio Shortbread to-go --- it was awesomely good!Would easily go back!

We stopped here while traveling to St. Simons Island, GA. We were in time for the breakfast buffet. This is associated with a truck stop, but it was clean and had a well stocked buffet. The service was top shelf and the food was right there also. I seldom give an excellent rating, but this Golden Corral definitely deserves it.

Some WH's are great, some are average. This one is more of the last category. The service was ok, but the scrambled eggs looked like they started out as over easy and got scrambled at the last minute ( whites/yellow separate). The hash browns had little or no crispy bits and the toast was lukewarm(butter wouldn't melt on it)> Waffle was so thin you could almost see through it.

For more than 65 years Denny's has been bringing people together over great food. It's the place where people can relax and be themselves; where they can enjoy classic American comfort food and everyday value. 24 hours a day. 365 days a year. Here, you ca
We were looking for somewhere to get dessert after leaving King's Dominion and decided to give this place a try. First, we waited at the host stand for at least 5 minutes before someone came over to seat us. We were seated at a booth by the window. Our waitress was an older lady with short hair, unfortunately I can't remember her name. She greeted us promptly and brought our drinks. In the meantime, we noticed there were ants crawling in the window ledge by our table. We mentioned them to her and she nodded. I admit it kind of grossed me out, but I smooshed a few of them and we went ahead and ordered. Surprisingly, the food was pretty good. I had 1/2 order of nachos and some ice cream. We had 2 burgers at our table, and some dessert pancakes. Overall, we enjoyed the food. When we were done eating, we kept trying to flag down the waitress for our check and she never came back. We spotted her bussing tables but she never even looked our direction. We finally got up and just went to the register and the lady there was able to split our check and we paid. This is located at a truck rest stop and the lobby area was FREEZING cold. The restaurant itself was okay. I can't say we'll never go back, but hopefully the delay & the ants aren't recurring problems. The food was good and reasonably priced. They need to take care of the ant issue.

Serving house-made foods for 35 years something like Gran made in her kitchen. Bread for sandwiches is baked every morning. Enjoy a turkey roll with sliced turkey roasted in our ovens and a country ham sandwich that was voted one of the best in Virginia b
This country decorated cafe has a creative country style menu coupled with specialty pies. With all the pies, I almost thought I might be in Pie Town, NM. The sandwiches are mostly the standard deli sandwiches with turkey and ham. There was a shrimp salad sandwich, but I just got the egg salad sandwich. I was really interested in the creative sides: five veggie slaw, marinated broccoli, and a different type of Greek salad. I got the Greek salad, black eyed peas, and a creative olive salad. It was a very tasty, healthy, and inexpensive lunch. Hi, Peter. Thank you for finding Homemades on your travels from Fredericksburg. And, thank you, too, for taking the time to send in such an nice review. I like pie too. My favorite is the chocolate chess. It has a few crushed pecans on top. ... then ask our person who is helping you to put some real whipped cream on top of the chocolate chess and then you really have something Good! Try our pretty and delicios deep dish apple pie next time. It makes a great gift too.Suzanne

Southern Comfortable! Smokers are rolling every day with pork, chicken, ribs and more.
Four friends met for lunch at Jake's Place. Really enjoyed our first visit and look forward to returning. Many menu choices and beverages. Wish we had room for dessert though! Met the owners and learned so much from watching the Youtube story on Jake's Place. You will too! I believe they are pet friendly on the backyard patio. Very Unique setting. A must visit if you are in the area. Probably a great place on the weekends too. Very inviting establishment.

I recently had lunch at Trackside on my way through Ashland. It's right on the railroad tracks downtown. The decor is a little old. The menu has a nice variety at reasonable prices. I had an oyster po' boy. The oysters were good; however, they were a little overwhelmed by the bread and remoulade.Service was good.

With a two-story sign located on the busiest rail line in the East, The Ironhorse is an undeniable landmark in Ashland, VA. Since 1993, The Ironhorse has provided fine food and drink to locals, travelers and destination diners in the heart of Ashland. As
We visited the Iron Horse on an August Thursday with perfect weather for having lunch outside. When we learned that one of the daily specials was homemade gazpacho, featuring Hanover tomatoes, our decision on what to try became easy. Wow! Gazpacho done right!Outside dining is just a few steps from the railroad tracks, so for railfans like us, getting to watch a passing train during our visit would have been a lot of fun, but nothing came by. Maybe next time. We will be back!

Near closing on a Sunday evening, we stopped in and 2 of us had the buffet and the other 2 ordered off menu. Fried chicken and the rice with gravy were my favorites. Everything was good, seems they take pride in providing good comfort food. I would return for sure.
