Barbeque Exchange - Gordonsville, VA

The Barbeque Exchange wows you the first time you visit and later visits leave you feeling less than wowed...I gave it 3 tries and wrote it off my list..........

There is now good barbecue in Central Va

BBQ Exchange has good pork BBQ but the sides in particular the cole slaw is a hit or miss ...the french fries are horrible, burned to a crisp...i still like to go there though...I just ask for a taste of the slaw before getting it.....The beef BBQ needs a little work also...sliced not chopped and a little tough for my taste...but overall this is a good place for a town like gordonsville....

Looking for the best Chilidog

If you are ever in Charlottesville, Virginia, I would recommend the Jack 'N Jill restaurant on east high street....they serve a delicious foot long dog....get it "all the way." Been around since the early 60's. Similar to Jess's Lunch in Harrisonburg, which I always stop at when I am in Harrisonburg..

WV and VA Drive on 64/81

Jess's Quick Lunch is on the square right in downtown Harrisonburg...It is a place that makes you feel like you have discovered where all the locals hang out...try it....Also, in Waynesboro the tailgate grill on the 250 by pass (I think that is what they call it, one street/block over from the HS) makes the best burger in the area. The last time I was in there a couple of weeks ago they had a special..burger/fries and drink for $6.75 I almost got one to go at this price...try this you'll like it....

Lake Anna recs for 1st time visitor!

There is a restaurant/motel just before the 208 bridge if you are coming from Fredericksburg, and just past the 208 bridge if you are going to Fredericksburg...The name escapes me...but they serve pretty good grub, blue plates and not to expensive..the other place for a more earthy experience is Hunters Landing....The food at these places is about the same and priced about the same...My first choice would be the restaurant/motel....good eating....Be sure and report back on your experiences....dining around the lake...

Cooking boring dried beans

Caned beans have a lot of salt. One way to get around the salt is to drain the caned beans and then rinse them. Put them in cooking pan add water and you have caned beans with little or no salt. Salt is not that hard to eliminate or reduce in your diet if you try.

Restaurant recommendations - I-64 from Lexington, Ky to Virginia Beach

Littleman, don't stop letting us know about these joints. I also like them. Its just that I don't think the average chowhound would go into this particular joint based on outside appearance and location. The food is blue plate all the way. Nothing to excite a chowhound. Thanks and keep the post coming, if it weren't for you I would never have discovered this place.

Restaurant recommendations - I-64 from Lexington, Ky to Virginia Beach

Littleman, the basic city luncheonette is not what most of the people who read this would want to try. I had second thoughts about going into the place. It's in a run down shady section of waynesboro, right along the railroad tracks. The appearance of the place will probably discourage most. I had a burger and fries ($5.78) to go, o.k. but I wouldn't go back for it. JMHO.

Recs? I-81 in VA from Maryland border to TN

The very best food: . I always stop at the K&W whenever I am in Roanoke, Va. Probably the closest one for you coming off I-81 would be the one right off the I-81 exit I-581 then take the I-581 Exit 3E.1609 Hershberger Road at the crossroads mall. Phone: 540-563-4977. They also do a great breakfast.
