The Country House Cafe - Hadensville, VA (route 250 near I 64 exit 152)

I have lived near this place for a few years but never made it a point of stopping in.
Finally tried it Saturday night, and it was a real treat. Let me start off by saying we will definately be back.

Hadensville isn't exactly a thriving metropolis, all you can see of it from route 250 is a couple of gas stations, an auto parts store, mini storage, and a fire house, interspersed with lots of fields. Next to one of the gas stations, on the south side of route 250, is the Country House Cafe, it doesn't look run down but it doesn't look like much from the outside, with its dirt and gravel parking lot.

Inside you will find tables with fresh white table cloths, and a menu filled with good down home food. We skipped the specials of the day and went straight for the heart of the menu. My wife had the fried chicken, it had just a hint of honey drizzled on it - which detered me from ordering it, but I must say the effect was subtle and not unwelcome in the peice I tried. In fact, it was downright tasty, probably better than the stuff I had in Williamsburg.

I had the pork chops, which were pretty good, not as good as the ones I make, but not bad. That is high praise from me considering I have only had 2 restaurant pork chops in my life tht I would consider really good, these weren't quite up there, but they werre very tasty , well seasoned, and not dry.

They had a good selection of vegetable sides, the bread basket had warm thick rolls and some sweet cornbread. Our son's cchicken fingers were quite tasty too, and they brought those out as soon as they were done , which was a plus.

One of the specials included a "black and blue" steak served with a crabcake, that looked rather tasty when served at the next table.

The servers were very efficient and really hstled, since every table was filled ( I would say about 14 tables with 2 servers) and we never wanted for anything, even though there were a lot of regulars.

If you are travelling down I 64 near exit 152 and are hungry and its around diner time you might want to try this place out. Generally if you can get into the lot ther is also a seat for you, I will try and check on the hours if anyone is curious.
