Simply Legendary

The Virginia Diner™️ has been a refuge for folks who like down-home cooking ever since Mrs. D'Earcy Davis served hot biscuits and vegetable soup to hungry customers way back in 1929. In those days the little Diner was a refurbished Sussex, Surry, and Southampton Railroad car.

An Iconic Virginia Landmark Offering Home-Cooked Meals & World Famous Peanuts

As the business grew, so did the restaurant with dining room after dining room added on to accommodate a growing list of satisfied customers. Today the Virginia Diner™️ has been replicated and the old railroad car has become a legend, but its quaint atmosphere has been faithfully preserved and is still reflected throughout the restaurant.

Try Our World Famous Peanuts!

Established in the heart of Virginia Peanut country, it was only natural that Virginia peanuts ended up on the menu.
