Wayside chicken had gone down hill a bit but I might try them again.
The place I would try if I were in Cville would be a short trip to Gordonsville for the Barbeque Exchange
. Heard tons of good things about them, but due to family health situations havent had a chance to go myself.I hear Porkapalooza is coming soon (if it hasnt happened already)
Since you will be there a while, you could also get a chance to go to the Bluegrass Bakery.
It is not just a bakery, but it is small . Not a lot of parking but near one of the parking ramps. last time we tried to go the line to get in the place was out the door and the wait once you were in was an hour and a half, so we declined. But I hear it is amazing stuff. Probably better to go not on a weekend, or go early.
Also check out the Main Street Market for fresh food, Feast
makes good subs (if a bit on the organic side ;) ) and the Gearharts
chocolates in that same building is excellent , and I have gotten excellent pastries from the bakery next to Gearhardts on Main Street.
