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.
I love this place! I got the Raspberry Chicken and Brie sandwich (with caramelized apples) with sweet potato fries. It was delicious! Serves was quick too. Before I knew it the waiter was bringing out our food. The only problem I had is that he never refilled my water, but he refilled my fiance's tea and did ask me at the end if I wanted water. Oh, also I asked for lemon in my water and he did not give me a lemon. They give you so much good food at this place and it is reasonably priced. Our bill was like $20 and we both have leftovers. I will definitely go back.
