Not sure this place qualifies as “road food” but my husband and I eat at The Shabeen when we are in Charlottesville. It is a South African pub. Also I second or third Crozet Pizza.
You know, I was going to ask here how The Shabeen was, since I know a chef that used to work there (he’s now a caterer in Vermont) and really talks up the place. I’ll definitely add it to my list to check out next time work takes me to town.
