This is a good place to get a nice meal at reasonable prices. Atmosphere of an old fashioned diner with friendly waitresses. You can eat at the diner bar or in booths. Bring cash... they do not take credit cards or checks although they have an ATM available.

Wish we had a place like this in Fairfax station. One of the best breakfast I have ever had. Will definitely return anytime in culpeper.

Although I appreciate the nostalgic decor, it's 2017 and time to take credit cards. I saw several people see the "Cash Only" sign, turn around and walk away. Luckily we had cash. The service is fast, efficient; however, the food is mediocre at best. Breakfast is probably your best bet since it seems to be what they do best. The... More

If you like greasy diners, this is the place for you. My husband loved it. For me it was just ok. It does have a retro diner feel. I had a patty melt. It was ok. The hamburger was very thin, but I ejoyed the rye bread it came on. My husband had some kind of combo breakfast with eggs,... More

Friendly and comfortable place. Food for breakfast was very good! portions are large and well priced. The coffee was excellent! Cash only, so be sure to bring cash or you may need to pay a fee to use the ATM machine inside the restaurant.

Had lunch. Not going back. Some of the most flavorless food I've ever eaten. I expected a small town diner with great food. I got a Wonderbread sandwich with soup from a can...watered down. Very disappointing.

Nice diner type spot that is a piece of local history. The counter is a classic that brings back the fifties.

Frost is something of an institution in the old quarter of Culpeper. It's like stepping back into the 1960s; the old bar stools, the huge slide-in booth tables, the menu. We shrieked with delight; this is like entering the Fonz's home. A big, icy chocolate milkshake arrived in a iced metal mixer, to attempt to pour into a plastic cup... More

While driving home to Canada from Virginia we always make a point of stopping at Frost for lunch. Best cheeseburger around an worth stopping for. Just a note: they only take cash.

We arrived in town after lunch and starved from a long drive. We walked around town, found this diner in the heart of the small downtown, and entered our past. Dinners posted in front highlighted liver and onions or meat loaf. We sat at the counter around oldtimers reading the paper and chatting up the friendly waitresses, all of whom... More
