“This is a great place to go to get quick, healthy food (it has been a staple for us and our kids for years). You order at the counter and can sit down inside or out. Offers a great kids’ combo meal of a chicken, steak, lamb, or vegetable skewer with rice and carrot sticks and a drink, all for $4.99. And it’s good. ”

“A Charlottesville institution. Parents send their kids these bagels when they go away to college. Locals see everyone they know there. The lines move very fast - so don't be discouraged if they are long. The caesar salad is fantastic. ”
