10. Wahoo BBQ

I was excited to see what the local offering would be like for barbecue. The barbecue didn’t stand out any better or worse than any of the local barbecue places. However, the problem was the baked beans and the potato salad. If they would’ve gotten a can of pork and beans from the grocery store or potato salad it would’ve been about the same. It is extremely unfortunate. I highly recommend the barbecue from a convenience point of you of all the other stores around simply because it’s closer. However as a total package I do not recommend wahoo barbecue.

The first time I went to this restaurant, I came in and no hostess greeted me. After a file someone came over and asked if I had been helped. I said no, and they walked away. Maybe 15 minutes later someone who turned out to be our waitress showed up and sent is to a table.I've eaten at this IHOP twice and it's been the same problem. I think they have no greeter, and waitresses take turns--only it's haphazard with gaps in service.The order was scrambled somehow (I forget the details) but we didn't get what was ordered. Service was somewhat slow.The food is OK, standard IHOP fare, but this restaurant is not worth the trouble.

Tavern on the Green

Reviewed By tripp166

We went on a Saturday afternoon. There was no one in the indoor restaurant at all and a patron picnic was going on outside. Our server was abrupt and without personality. In addition she brought my appetizer quesadillas, my Caesar salad and my entre of eggs Benedict at the same time, which meant that something was going to be cold instead of hot. In addition, the Hollandaise on the eggs Benedict was flavorless and I imagine it was probably from a box (I certainly don't know this for sure). In addition, the poached eggs' whites were not cooked through. All in all disappointing from my standpoint.

I have tried several food items at this Popeye's location- regular chicken, chicken strips, Po Boy sandwiches, side items- and it's all good. I love some of the dipping sauces for their chicken too. Always a friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere, and clean seating areas. An excellent fast food stop.

Stooped at the Arby's in Zion Crossroads on the road for a late night dinner. I had the beef brisket, while it was a bit lukewarm, it tasted good.

We appreciated the friendly and efficient staff who coped with our requests for six different types of sub plus a salad and cookies. always enjoy the fresh bread and fresh ingredients. The cookies were a bit too sugary. Thanks for the extra hot pepper sauce. Good selection of chips. Always fun to watch your sandwiches being assembled.

Apparently it was during a special restaurant month in the Charlottesville area, where restaurants offered limited choices but some of their best fare. We made reservations here and the restaurant and settings didn't disappoint. The food was very tasty, the servers were attentive but not hovering and the entire evening was a delight.

Stopped for lunch transiting I64. Agree with positive “retro vibe diner rating.” Fast service. Drinks replenished promptly and repeatedly. Fried zucchini with marinara sauce (sauce was steaming hot and home made) was delightful. Owner visited guests tables insuring everyone satisfied. Worth stopping here when on I64.

Stopped in with family for an early dinner. The place was deserted but while we were there the place slowly filled. One side is restaurant while the other a wine tasting room. The waitress was friendly and accommodating. Wide variety of menu choices. Our table had various dishes from chicken Caesar salad to fish and shrimp. All very good. Served hot and in large quantities. Give this place a try!

So, this restaurant is a little shoddy looking on the outside and the decor needs to be updated, but the food and the service is absolutely top notch. We arrived late on a very cold Thursday evening and were whole heartedly welcomed by warm servers and a chatty smiley friendly hostess. The environment of the restaurant was friendly, comforting, local and calm. Just what we needed. Our server was attentive, but not bothersome. Our food, the specials for St. Patricks Day, Irish Stew and Shepherds Pie, were simply out of this world. We had no expectations and The Food is great! Dessert was some sort of Butterfinger extravaganza that was incredible. This is a destination, and we may head here again just for the food. Not too many places with Guinness on tap in this country :) Very, very nice... highly recommend. Actually, already have several times!
