A few weeks back I went to get work done @ Brookland Park tattoo- my friends in richmond had recently come back from the place with some incredible ink! I was able to sit down with the artist and really discuss and plan what I wanted, and then come back the next day (probably would have been same day but the place was jumpin! and I got a rather large piece). I spent 2 hours in the chair- the shop team was entertaining and distracted me at all the right times LOL Plus this was my first tat in over 8 years and due to the pain with my other one I had prepared myself to be in agony! But honestly I was almost dozing off! No heavy handedness in Mr. Zobel! I will be back for more for sure- I know there are tons of shops and artists closer to me that BPT (I live in fredericksburg) but I can't see myself going anywhere else!
My husband and I were very pleased with this restaurant. Actually, we loved it. The seafood was fresh and prepared perfectly. The sides were homemade and portions were plentiful. Everything was delicious. The service was excellent so I must comment on the post about the restaurant being racist. We are white and went to the Old Towne location. We were treated the same as everyone else and no one stared. We were not the only whites in the restaurant and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The manager(owner?) even sat at our table and chatted with us. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody.
I'm going to make this short. They have the best burgers in Richmond, Va and for that matter in all of the states I've visited or lived in the U.S. Hands down. And they don't charge 5-star chef prices either. I've tried all their burgers and they never disappoint. The fries are fresh and tasty and taste like potatoes! It's my secret place. They beat Carytown Burgers and Fries. I go there every time I shop at Kroger's, which is a stone's throw away from them. Zagat hasn't discovered them yet.
