Always good. Always happy with food here. Wish they had salmon patties every day. Yum. Always healthy choices as well as comfort food. Reminds me of my grandmother's cooking. Wish they had more parking.

This is a popular restaurant in downtown Richmond. Lots of people were there getting take out from the cafeteria type line. There was also waitress served seating. It offers classic comfort food. I would not seek it out again but it was fine.

Best place in Richmond for lunch. Family friendly and affordable. The pies are the perfect way to end the meal too, but we always have to get them to go. Our meals always fills us up.

Good home cooking at great prices. The veggies are well cooked and plenty of choices. The meatloaf is great, the pork chops look better than they taste. Seating can be crowded. Prices are cheap!
