Riverside North, Charlottesville VA

If you have a hankering for a hot bacon cheeseburger (with lettuce, tomato, and grilled onions), or maybe a basket of French fries, a pile of fried mushrooms, or some hot and gooey Mozzarella cheese sticks, all hot right off the grill and out of the frier, then Riverside North is the place to go. The food is straight-forward American fare, served made-to-order, hot and fast. The atmosphere is casual and the service is friendly. A great place to go when you need some old-fashioned comfort burgers and fried sides! Don’t worry if there are a few grease spots on your receipt-that’s just a sign of a tasty meal!

Duner’s, Ivy VA

Duner’s is a bustling restaurant with food that can rival the finest dining establishments, except with large portions and a casual atmosphere despite the white tablecloths. Start with one of their many appetizers – the pork tacos with pico de gallo and sour cream served on miniature corn tortillas was delicious! The pico de gallo was so fresh and flavorful, the pork so tender! For dinner, try the fresh crab cakes with mashed potatoes and homemade tartar sauce. The cakes were filled with large lumps of crab while a crispy, almost carmelized crust kept it all together, hot, and moist. Or, try the chicken with bacon stuffed under the skin and filled with cheese, lemon-herb spatzle. The end result is a most wonderful and tender combination of exquisite flavors. Finish off your meal with dessert – the German chocolate cake with coconut and pecan butter cream was perfection, served with a raspberry and vanilla sauce and fresh whipped cream. A perfect ending to a fantastic meal!
