It looks like you are brand new here. If you go to the Where shall I eat forum and post this question there, you will have better results. I did look in my orignal Roadfood book and could not find a restaurant such as you described. Good luck in your search.
Are you sure you are on the right thread???

I used to have a note about a fish restaurant off of I – 59 between Flat Rock, AL and Fort Payne, AL As I recall it was on a county road and was considered an absolute find. Unfortunately I have lost the note and now find myself heading in that direction. Sorry not to have more information, but ut seems to me it was in one of the early editions of Roadfood which I no longer have. Any help out there?
went to Writes and had a good hamburger. Did not get dessert because of something we saw on the way. Klines Dairy Bar is one of the few frozen Custard places around. Its a few blocks away from Writes, so have a burger and Onion rings first,a then get Custard.
We ate at the Mill Street Grill on Saturday evening and had excellent meals. I would not call it a special destination restaurant but the food was great. Even better, was the service. From the gals at the bar to the hostess and our server, it could not have been any nicer. What is amazing about this, to me, is that they are so busy and with many people waiting for tables, and yet we had great service and did not feel rushed at all. It was a good time and we all left happy.
We were in Staunton last October. Tried Mrs. Rowes and it was not even ordinary. Stay away.
The Mill Street Grill was great. We went there twice. Had the BBQ ribs and the big prime rib. Very good. Best of all, my vegan wife had menu choices instead of having to special order a meal.
We also went to the Depot Grill for lunch. We liked it.
Wished we had time to try Five Guys Burgers and Fries but we ran out of time. Maybe next time.
Nizza, yes! must second your recommendation of the Mill Street Grill.
Ok, I definitely have a place for dinner in Staunton.
It’s called The Mill Street Grill, 1 Mill Street, Staunton, VA, Phone: (540) 886-0656. Their food is delicious and we absolutely love their ribs, but, have had chicken and fish and everything was delicious.
It was recommended to us by someone on another food board when we where planning a trip from NJ to NC. We stopped on the way down and the food was so good we had to stop on the way back. That was a few of years ago and if we are travelling anywhere down that way we just gotta stop. In fact, two years ago we did a trip from NJ to Austin, TX and instead of going across Pa we went down to VA and had dinner and then proceeded to Austin via WV, Tenn, etc. That’s how much we like their food. Please note that they open at 4PM during the week and at 11AM on Sundays.
Just ate the Wrights this weekend. The pork bbq with coleslaw was great. Fries good.
If you order a hamburger, make it one of their specials. To order their regular burger
you will find it is a thin, tasteless patty. The lettuce and tomato on the burger were
fresh and good, but the burger meat was disappointing. They have great desserts. I am
a sucker for a chocolate and vanilla swirl cone, but they have many other great desserts.
You can sit inside or order from your car. I ordered from my car and found the service
great. They gave plenty of packets of ketchup, salt and pepper, and lots of napkins.
I ate at the BBQ-Ranch earlier this summer, and Wrights is similar. BBQ-Ranch has a scenic
view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, but Wrights has pretty servers. Inside the restaurants,
Wrights is more colourful and cleaner looking than BBQ-Ranch. I give Wrights the race by a nose.
avoid mrs’ stowes at all costs. drive up the highway to harrisonburg and go to the bbq ranch. was there sunday and it was deeeelicous.

I haven’t been here yet, but I hear they’re terrific. So’s South River Grill.
We were actually staying at the Best Western. We may try Writes Diary Bar for dinner and have breakfast intown, or down 81 someplace.
I can suggest a place to stay…the Best Western next to Mrs. Rowes. They are even pet friendly. Use the coupons found at rest stops to save a little money. I wouldn’t suggest Mrs. Rowes for dinner. I tried it back in April, and was disappointed. I also, because I was traveling alone, tried the steak place up the hill, within walking distance, Sirloin something, and it was good. Not "Roadfood", but good food, especially if you have driven 500 miles, and are tired and don’t want to drive for dinner.
Sometimes that is important, too.[:)] Staunton is mid-way for me to Atlanta, and I have stopped there often, fortunately, Mrs. Rowes was good in the beginning. It may be alright mid-day, but at the end of the day, the chicken is dry, and sides are suffering from having been made too long before.
Good burgers and shakes at Wright’s Dairy Rite—at least they were three years ago. (Go to the Virginia page for the review).
Any suggestions, aside from Mrs. Rowes?
