We hadn’t been to the Virginia Kitchen for more than 20 years. We always loved the food but we couldn’t take the smoke (before they banned smoking in restaurants). Today we were driving by, heading to Silver Diner, when on a whim we decided to...More

Based on the reviews, we drove out of our way to eat breakfast here. While we were seated quickly and sarcastically, we waited a bit for our waitress. Once she arrived, we could barely understand her- not just because she struggled with English, but she...More

We’re locals and love Virginia Kitchen. Never disappointed and better than Cracker Barrel. We’ve never had a bad meal here and the service is first rate!

It’s a shame that this type of spot is increasingly harder to find. The staff really cares about the food they put out and goes out of their way to make you feel at home.

Wonderful diner. Great for breakfast. All the basics are wonderful. Hash browns are so good that I always get an extra order to take away. True to the name, waffles are king. Love them topped with bananas and syrup.
