Very slow service even though the only other customer was a guy in dirty clothes who kept getting up and going behind the counter to refill his drink. The menu is basic greasy spoon food. When I thought I found something edible and was finally able to order it, I was disappointed. Even with the bad food, possible health violations... More

In the Bayberry Shopping Center along Rt 17 in Newport News. I love their chicken salad with tzaziki sauce. Small, but packs a big punch with their great food.

This place is actually named Grandstand's Grill. It is in the Bayberry Shopping Center, 980 J Clyde Morris Blvd., Newport News, Va. Where do I start? In business for 20 plus years, I saw a chicken dish that was so big, they served it in a large takeout foam container. It was filled to the point that you couldn't close... More

My boyfriend and I had Grandstands for lunch, I had their Philly Cheese Steak wtih onions and peppers. A huge sandwich, enough to save at least half for later. Definitely beats Straight Outta Philly across the street, I wasn't a fan of theirs. I split a large cheese fry with my boyfriend while he also got a Philly. The fries... More

I've frequented this restaurant often, mostly for their chicken greek salads. The last couple of times that I've gone there, the chicken on the salads was not good at all. It was mostly grill scrapings. One time the salad didn't even have feta cheese. Luckily, Anzio's Restaurant opened up right next door and they have a great chicken greek salad!... More

I go to many restaurants and they by far have the best burgers in town other than home made. The staff is excellent and the waitress already has an idea what I am likely to order when she sees me............

We were waited by our waitress Marci and she was awesome. She would hold conversations with us while we would order. The owner is very cool too. He cooks the food and also likes to hold conversations with us too. The food was awesome! I recommend their famous chicken Greek salad! They also have regular food like cheeseburgers and hotdogs....

This place is a small restaurant in a strip mall near I-64 at Newport News that serves lunchtime hot dogs, and grilled specialty items. I usually have their chicken Philly which is somewhat small but tasty. Sometimes they are better than others but I don't know why. They seem to have a loyal local following and regulars seem to get... More
