Restaurants in Virginia

Unique Old Dominion dishes that make eating through the state such a pleasure include peanut soup, ham with red eye gravy, and peanut pie. In and around Charlottesville, outstanding fried chicken is a staple, the best of it cooked and served in gas station convenience stores. Seafood from the ocean and from the Chesapeake Bay is at its finest all along the Eastern Shore, which also happens to boast a crop of ne plus ultra sweet potatoes – the basis of sweet potato pie, sweet potato French fries, and sweet potato biscuits. In southernmost Virginia, you’ll find cafes that serve what is — let’s be kind — a challenging dish: chitlins steamed in vinegar.
