This restaurant has great food with plenty of flavor. Definitely a step above the others. A nice separated bar area to chat before you eat. They also have added another room for private parties and to be used for additional seating. Don't pass this restaurant up; you will be sorry.

We eat at R & B's in Staunton about once a month and the food has always been good. I usually have the salad or cold bar which is plenty for me - lettuce w/toppings, plus fruit, cottage cheese, beets, pasta salad, Jello salad, etc. Don generally gets the buffet which includes the salad bar plus all the hot dishes....

Very nice place to eat, food is tasty, service is good. Most are locals so you know it's good. Had breakfast place filled up fast. Took a piece of pie to go.

They fry chicken excellent, great steaks on Saturday nights, and a buffet on the weekends. They have a great bar, a pretty little place for outdoor dining, and a large back room for parties. Salads are excellent and their Taco salad is really good as well.

I ordered four lunches from here, and called ahead so I could carry out. The food was very good, a tad costly ($34 for 3 wraps with fries and a grilled cheese and one drink) but still very good. There are not a ton of options in Staunton, and several co-workers told me this was the best place in town,... More

Variety of good food at decent prices. The new addition of the bar and outdoor seating is a nice touch, too.
