The Virginia Diner has been serving delicious down-home cooking to people from all over the country since 1929 when it was a refurbished Sussex, Surry and Southampton Railroad Car! Situated on the major thoroughfare 460 in Wakefield, over the years, The Virginia Diner has added on room after room to accommodate all these folks. If you haven’t been here, this needs to be your next stop on The Salty Southern Route!
To start with, the charming mood that you are welcomed with at the diner begins with the journey. The beautifully quaint country drive through Sussex to The Virginia Diner takes you back to a simpler, more relaxing time. Then, when you walk through the doors of the diner you will be pleasantly surprised by cases filled with homemade pie, local peanuts for purchase and to taste, antique peanut vendor roasters, local merchandise, and an atmosphere of red and white tablecloths with bentwood chairs and antique cast iron toys!
Wrapped up in all this Southern Hospitality is, of course, delicious food! The Virginia Diner serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just to tantalize your taste buds, this diner offers everything from baked county cured Virginia Ham, biscuits, BBQ, omelets, spoonbread, collards, peanut butter milk shakes and their world famous Peanut Pie! And that is just to name a few!
This holiday season is the perfect time of year for great friends, fun adventures and some down-home southern food! So, jump in the car and ride The Salty Southern Route to The Virginia Diner!
