Well, we're off to Hatteras again and are taking a new route. We'll be taking Hwy 460 from Blacksburg all the way to Norfolk and then taking 168/158 down to the OBX. Any interesting food places you can recommend along the route?

      In Bedford Va... Goode's Country Kitchen 1527 East Lynchburg Salem Turnpike Bedford, VA

      Two places in Appomattox Va....

      Granny Bees Restaurant 179 Main Street Appomattox, VA

      The Corner Grille 115 North Church Street Appomattox, VA

      In Wakefield Va.... Virginia Diner Route 460 Wakefield, VA
      quote:
      The Virginia Diner is a refuge for folks who like down-home cooking. Buckets of free peanuts for munching greet guests along with the irresistible aroma of freshly prepared dishes with all-time favorites like Country Cured Ham, Southern Fried Chicken, Famous Peanutty Pie, and Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits just like Grandma Galloway used to make. Traditional southern hospitality and efficient service

        I would avoid Virginia Diner. I was just there about a week ago and it was awful, not to mention that we had a waitress that was obviously having a bad day. I do second Cowlings, though.

          Ditto on VA Diner. We went several years ago and not only had bad service with a surly waitress, but the food took well over an hour to reach our table. We let the manager know of our discontent. We'll also never return.

            The Hitch-in-Post on Route 15 is about five minutes from 460. I probably ate about half of my meals there while in college.

              While traveling on Virginia's Route 460, what's the better choice: the above

              touted Cowling's BBQ (in Waverly) or Prince George Family BBQ in Petersburg?

               

              I passed both last week. Each had full parking lots and just screamed RoadFood.

              Anyone have the latest intel on these two literal roadside BBQ joints?
