We love this place. They have delicious burgers and the best seasoned fries in town. Place has been around forever, has hundreds of license plates adorning the walls and is super cool. You can write/carve your name in the table to remember your visit.

Food is ok and fun to go to an old neighborhood bar and grill. They only take cash or checks but do not tell you that until you go to the register to pay. Instead of paying debit or credit card fees they refer you to the ATM in the restaurant where you can get cash and they can get... More

Definitely the atmosphere of a local joint but everyone was friendly. Good service. Four or five good beers on tap with more bottle/can choices. Food is typical bar food but delicious and a good price.

In town and a friend suggested this Lynchburg icon. Interesting decor with the ceiling covered in license plates. It's small inside and has a pool table, darts and TVs showing the games. Burger was good as well as the club. Onion rings were a hit.

The "Cav" is an awesome place to grab a bite to eat, drink a beer, and play pool with friends. This restaurant's low key atmosphere makes it a fantastic place to hang out. The burgers are delicious! The large basket of fries is enough for at least 4 people to share! I like the car plates and team flags on... More

This place has been there a looong time. A great place to knock back a few brews and play some pool. The burgers are really good too. Give it a shot you won't be sorry you did.
