I used to stop here at least once a week when I lived in Richmond. This is a family owned operation and the treats here are ALWAYS GOOD. While I was in town I stopped in and the smells from the fresh baked goods overwhelmed me. It was very hard to decide what to try, but I decided on a lemon tart. It was sweet yet tart and the crust was flaky. It was just a delight in my mouth. It's hard to find small bakeries now a days but Williams is one that you have to try. It will be instant LOVE!!!

Roma in Sandston is a family owned business with real passion for Italian food and service. In my opinion, there is no where else in the Richmond area that has the quality, flavor, and small-town service as this Roma location. There is nothing on the menu that disappoints; the pizza is amazing, all of the pasta dishes are deliciously flavorful with rich ingredients, and the desserts are homemade. Whether you are local to the area or just passing through, you will become a lifetime customer after one visit!

Country Style Donuts

Reviewed By leadkat - Richmond, Virginia

I have had these tasty treats brought into work on some special occasions, however it was not until I went in person that I realized they have YUMMY doughnut holes! They are huge and delicious. They are just the right size for kids to have two and have just the right sized yummy treat! I of course had about four! Try them out for yourself!

Following the recs of other reviewers we jumped off the freeway on our way to DC for some Mom & Pop Chinese. 20 minutes for a plate of orange chicken was just too long. The lady behind the counter smiled, but never took the phone from her ear long enough to say anything after taking our order. All I can say about the cleanliness of the restroom is to avoid it and bring hand sanitizer instead of washing your hands before you eat. probably good for take out, but don't plan to eat there.

Proper Pie Co.

Reviewed By Headforbeer - Greenville, South Carolina

This is basically a takeout spot, tho there are a few seats. Got breakfast pastries, desserts and their fabulous savory pies for dinner. Unreal crusts, works of art. Line forms before they open, even in last month's bitter cold, but once you get inside and see the pies, it's all worthwhile.

Mexico Restaurant

Reviewed By EIIooooohhh - Williamsburg

We had heard good reviews so we tried it. We were not impressed. The food and service were fine, but not great. The portion sizes seemed small. The beef in my fried chimichanga was overdone. The chips were disappointing. My daughter's fajitas were very good.
They have some gluten free options, but it was disappointing that the quest dip was not GF.
