Will be taking a trip South from Boston in early September. I am planning a stop at Angelinas in Baltimore for crab cakes and Bob Sweatmans in Holly Hill SC for the all you can eat buffet. I am currently looking for suggestions in the Richmond VA area. We will be coming down 95 and arrive around lunchtime. We would like to do a casual lunch and dont mind driving for something special. If there are any regional specialties not found else ware that would be our first choice. We also want to try BBQ, Cajun, southern home cooking and other foods of the South. Here are some places I found on the board.
Kings BBQ/ Petersburg
Millies Diner/ Shockoe Bottom
Smokey Pig/ Ashland
Any comments on these places or suggestions for other places would be greatly appreciated.
