Let's be clear Buz N Ned's has great BBQ, but they still don't hold a grill to this establishment or the sister restaurant, Alamo! I've eaten Alamo for 3 year, moved to Short Pump only to find out their own open a new and improved restaurant! The pull pork is well flavored Ribs nice and tinder Cat fish (still don't know why my lady ordered seafood at a BBQ spot, lol) juicy and we'll seasoned The chicken was my ladies favorite The greens we average, add your own vinegar The jalapeño Mac & Cheese is the sh*t The yams are better than the Mac & Cheese The sweet tea needs to be sweeter And I'm still upset that they don't have beer, but because of the quality of food I won't complain. And by the way this whole meal was for under $28 and had food to spare!
I recently visited the "River District" of Shockoe Bottom Richmond and walked next to a delightful place called City Dogs. Being from the north I am very picky about my hot dogs!!! Not only did this place offer a great beer selection, as well as a full bar, but the hot dogs were PHENOMENAL!!!!!! Along with a very family type of feel... this place offers the atmosphere that can suit a quick bite on the run, or a good place to have lunch with a prospective client. I am looking forward to going by at night as soon as possible!! They are open til' 3am on Friday and Saturday night; for anyone who has an appetite for some good food besides late night pizza. I highly recommend this place!!!!!!
We went to Millies and the food is exceptional... fantastic "messes" and really diverse selection. The hashbrowns are nicely seasoned. You do have to order off the chalk board... but that is part of the atmosphere of the diner and when we asked the waitress for suggestions, she was more than happy to offer suggestions. I had the lobster and eggs in puff pastry (really good), and other people at our table tried the corned beef hash (exceptional) and the crab enchilada (tons of crab). The service was just like a diner... efficient and quick. They are really busy so you may have to wait if you dont get there early, but you can enjoy a mimosa or bloody mary on the patio while you wait.
