Mama Cucina

Reviewed By Bill D - Leland, North Carolina

Definitely a Mom and Pop restaurant...not too large but ample seating. Service was very good and the food was outstanding. Italian wedding soup was the soup du jour and it was to die for. Clams over linguini, shrimp scampi, and the chicken and sausage were all a hit. This place is a must overtime we return to Richmond

Mission Bbq

Reviewed By JA M

The BBQ here is very Texonian in style and selection, which sets the benchmark rather high. They meat the challenge with excellent, and moist, BBQ, coupled with a wide selection of sauces at the table. The sides, especially Baked Beans are also first-rate. All for very reasonable prices. I entered very hungry, ordered the three-meat platter, with a couple of sides, and walked out a satisfied and satiated customer. My heart was filled as well, for at 12 noon everyone, even NFL fans, stand to sing the Star Spangled Banner. I intend to return often.

There were four of us for dinner. One person had french toast, another a vegetarian sandwich, another a philly steak and I had the meatloaf. Everyone agreed, everything was delicious. The atmosphere is pretty cool and the staff very accommodating, and it was very clean. Definitely a good place to eat

Reviewed By michaelg71 - Midlothian, Virginia

Growing up in the NYC area i frequently visited China Town and this takes me back to those great food experiences. Finally found a great authentic Chinese restaurant in the Richmond area.
Food was fresh tasting and perfect flavor. If you like spicy Hunan style this is tops. Just wish I lived closer.

This restaurant was very disappointing. Food was ordinary. Service was rude and slow. Waitress was actually snitty - for no apparent reason. Very disappointing experience.

Boychiks Deli

Reviewed By VirginiaJsc - Virginia

We go to Boychiks for breakfast or lunch whenever we want a basic good meal and fast service. You can be in and out in less than 30 minutes. Hot coffee immediately. Sausage, eggs, omelette or whatever in front of you hot and perfect in 10 minutes. The sandwiches at lunch are great, especially the hot ones. All the waitresses are friendly and on the ball. On Sundays you'd better be there before 9:00 or you will have to wait. But even the waiting line moves pretty fast. Prices are very reasonable.

Capital Ale House - Innsbook

Reviewed By Richbcad - Carlsbad, California

The burger I had was good. The Blue Black burger was not earth shattering but it did not seem like a frozen patty burger. Fries were not very good. Beer selection is very nice. Hate all the ten ounce beers at the high prices. Need to lower these! Service is good. Nice upscale interior. Not too loud. Only way to see sports on the tv is to sit at the bar. These areas above need improvement to get a better rating and set a better tone for this place.

HogsHead Cafe

Reviewed By Denise S

This hole-in-the-wall cafe is terrific! We had baby back ribs and the pulled pork platter and cleaned our plates. The sides of mac and cheese, broccoli, apples and butter beans were home made and delicious. The cafe is small but the staff were attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back next time we're in Richmond.

Five stars all around!

BLUF: Great food, reasonably priced, in a bar atmosphere

We were driving home from SC and decided to stop in the area for dinner and to burn some time to avoid the traffic jams that undoubtedly awaited us on the beltway. This place is basically a bar in a strip mall with some outdoor seating overlooking the parking lot. But don't judge it based on its unassuming exterior, because the food and service here was fantastic!
The place was really busy for a Wednesday evening, so that was a good sign. We were seated promptly and the server was just the right amount of attentive, despite her number of customers. The best part, however, was the food. I ordered the shrimp and grits (am I in VA or GA?!) and hubs ordered the shepherd's pie. Both were excellent, but I believe I got the better dish-- those shrimp were huge, and perfectly cooked, and the grits tasted homemade. Yum. We will be back, if I can swing it!
