    The Southern Kitchen in New Market VA which has been reviewed on this forum is not too far away. probably less than an hour

    In Winchester, try Vivian's Country Cooking, if it's still open. Cafe Sofia serves Bulgarian food, which is probably the last thing you'd expect to find in this part of the country.

    Just south of Winchester on Rt. 11, the Wayside Inn in Middletown serves a great country ham and can be a bit of a splurge but is definitely worth it. Over in Front Royal, the Royal Dairy has been going strong since the 40s.

    Strasburg Inn (or Hotel Strasburg) (big white place that looks like an old hotel) in Strasburg is top-notch. There used to be a restaurant in Winchester called The Royal that was great, too. I've heard conflicting stories about Southern Kitchen lately but New Market is so cute it's worth it. Also try the Spring House in Woodstock, and grab some of that local produce.

    I went to Southern Kitchen in the Summer of 2000, I was actually returning to Pittsburgh after a Richmond Braves game in Richmond Virginia. The Peanut Soup and Country Ham were fantastic, however I can't comment on anything else on their menu

    I've been going to Southern Kitchen for a ham fix once or twice a year for the last decade or so and I would say that it's as good as it ever was.

    There's a couple of great road food places to choose from. Lauders Restaurant is famous for its fried apple fritters, and sends its coleslaw all over the DC area. Turn right on 55 off of 340 coming into town, its about a mile down the road. Royal Dairy in Front Royal is a great, classic ice cream joint.

    In Winchester proper, the Triangle Diner is a nice, traditional place, and Patsy Cline waitressed there (so says the legend).

    My all time fave in Winchester, right on the downtown mall, is Snow White grill. Only open on weekdays, 10-2, this place serves tasty, tiny burgers in bunches. Try to order it any way but the way they make them, and get ribbed by the regulars. Last time I went in the staff was singing theme to "Gilligans Island" and demanding jokes from the patrons at the counter. Truly the type of place you don't see very often these days.

    For Mexican in Winchester try Camino Real at 928 Berryville Ave, AKA Rte 7, just West of I-81 about a mile.
    On Rte 340 about 10 miles N of Winchester, just inside the WVa line is "My Pappy's Place". Pretty good food and a lot of real antique stuff on the walls.
    For Chinese try Chinatown on Rte 50, about a half mile East of I-81, on the N. side of the road. They have a really good buffet during lunch and for dinner Wed & Sun. They also have menu service and reasonable prices. One of the best Chinese buffets I've ever had. Gotta try the Queen Anne's beef.

    I don't think you can do wrong around that area. There's so much good salty ham that comes from up there.
