We went there with another couple after a Sunday VCU game. Place was extremely crowded. Wish we hadn't waited. Service was not good and food was even worse. Guess we are too old to enjoy a college experience.

We were two couples looking for something to eat before a 9:00 pm VCU basketball game. We got there at 6:30 and still had over a half hours wait. The crowd is really into VCU though there were a few red Dayton fans also. It is unfortunate that the entrance is configured the way it is. It makes it so... More

Conveniently located near VCU Monroe campus. Dropped by for lunch on a Saturday. Place was very busy. Servers were friendly. Drinks come in small pitchers! While the nachos were good, the rest of our food was mediocre. The place has a layer of dust on all flat surfaces. The booth seats desperately need to be repaired. Bathroom floor was filthy....

I can't believe triple D gave this place good marks. It was awful. The calzone was just hideous and there was really no difference between the Stromboli and calzone. Both looked the same and both were equally horrible. Run away from this place.

We went there for a breakfast and a dinner on a busy college weekendd at VCU. Loved it. I had the cowboy burrito for breakfast. A little quirky, but reasonably priced, and great food.

Best hand battered onion rings I've ever had! Great place with a diner feel. They have a wide variety of food, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, entrees such as meatloaf open faced sandwiches... Also desserts and milkshakes. Great service.

When visiting my grandson at college at VCU, he took me and my wife here for breakfast. What a great little gem this is with such unusual décor and a great breakfast menu. Have not had such a home cooked breakfast this good in a long time. Eggs cooked perfect and hash browns with red skin potatoes were just great.... More
