I had a family member recommend that I try them out. I was not disappointed. The food was hot, huge portions, and true southern cuisine. I will definitely be back!

We arrived on a weekday about a quarter till noon. There were plenty of seats. The restaurant is clean and with plenty of staff. Within 20 minutes the restaurant was very full of people. We were very pleased we arrived so early. The onion rings were hot and crunchy and very flavorful. They had a light golden battering. The sandwiches ... read more

My recent visit was back in mid December while on my way back to Lynchburg after a weekend in Tidewater. I have been to this restaurant many times. On this visit I would order dinner. The buffet looked really good but I am not much into buffets anymore. I would order the roast beef dinner and it was really good. The meat was good and ... read more

On a trip from the mountains of VA back to NC, we stopped in for a quick bite! We knew of this place from their well known peanuts but decided to give it a try! Overall I was impressed! The pricing was pretty cheap considering the quality of the food! They had a buffet as well but I had a philly cheese steak. The waitress was incred ... read more

Love Virginia Diner. The food tastes like a home cooked meal and they have a small store to purchase nuts and other items.

Had dinner for 7 of us. Started with hush puppies and onion rings and both were great.

I called to ask about buying a whole peanut pie. I was told they had them, no need to order ahead. I drive an hour & was told there was only 1 left and they couldn't sell it. I told them they would never see me again. On my way to my car, a very nice young man brought the pie out to me and said "No Charge". He wouldn't let me pa ... read more

My family tried the fried chicken, BBQ, ham biscuits, liver and onions, collards, carrot souffle, mac and cheese, hush puppies, onion rings, and spoon bread. Keep in mind everyone thinks their Memaw's cooking is the best, and just because it's different doesn't make it wrong. I prefer my Memaw's collards and spoon bread. The onion ri ... read more

Major thanks to the Virginia Diner Food Truck team! They came to our dealership to do our Christmas lunch fr our team!

So many options on the menu. I know we looked at the menu for a good 20 minutes. Ashley was an amazing server. Friendly and offered suggestions. The restaurant was bright, clean, and open. The restrooms were very clean as well.

Excellent lunch
I have been to the Virginia Diner many times in the past and it was always good. I was there yesterday for Sunday lunch and I think it is better than ever. Many places advertise "home cooked meals" but none that I have been to like this. It is like they have hired 20 old school grandmas to cook. Only problem I had was that I ate too ... read more
