Chain restaurants are not without their merit. They’re quick, predictable and usually at every exit off the interstate. But if you’re looking for something a little different, then we’ve got just what you’re craving. Although they all offer incredible flavors and unique menus, these 13 restaurants in Virginia aren’t all about 5-star dining. What they offer instead is an experience you just can’t find anywhere else.

So if you’re hungry for a change of pace – and an atmosphere that makes the food taste that much better – check out these amazing Virginia restaurants. We think you’ll be glad you did.

We love hearing about restaurants that do things just a little differently — the kinds of places you can only find in Virginia. Tell us about any unique or unusual restaurants you like to go to and why!
