Local Thai restaurant with all of your favorite Thai dishes.
103 E Cary St | Richmond | patiothairva.com
The Patio Thai Restaurant is a local restaurant with all of your Thai favorites from Pad Thai and Pad See-Ew to Red Curry and Chicken Satay. We honestly can’t think of a food we’d rather have delivered more than Thai. There’s just something about noodles or rice dishes that is so comforting!
Along with all of your favorites, The Patio Thai Restaurant also offers dishes you might not have tried before like Pineapple Fried Rice and Green Salmon Curry. These dishes are worth a try if you are willing to stray away from your usual order!
Don’t forget to order dessert from your choice of Mango with Sweet Sticky Rice, Thai Custard with Sweet Sticky Rice, or Cake Delight (lemon cake).
“I got their pork Pad Thai and Thai iced coffee and both were phenomenal! About $20 for the whole thing, and it was enough for dinner one night and lunch the next. Really filling without making you feel bloated.” - Yelp Review

Yup, you can get tacos delivered. And not just any tacos. The culinary vision of this restaurant is to combine the style of Latin American cuisine, the comfort of Southern cuisine, and the fresh and vibrant ingredients of California-style cooking to create tacos that are distinctly Southern U.S.
Tacos are sold individually, so you can mix and match to try all of their unique offerings. Featured favorites include the Cornmeal Crusted Catfish taco (Maryland Blue Cornmeal crusted blue catfish, tomatillo salsa, red cabbage slaw, and hot sauce aioli) and the Battered Fried Chicken taco (Buttermilk battered fried chicken, pickled red onions, avocado, chipotle BBQ crema, and agave hot sauce).
The Flaming Hot Cheeto Elote Loco is another popular menu item, while the Hush Puppy Nachos are our absolute must-order.
Have you ever wished for an adult version of a happy meal? Try Soul Taco’s “Happier Meal” - two tacos, a beer, and a toy! Be sure to try the House Made Limeade with your meal as well!
“Soul Taco is DELICIOUS. The atmosphere is warm but chic. Their limeade is sweet with an edge of tang, but so inviting and tasty. I had the fried chicken taco - I have never quite had anything like it.” - Yelp Review

Barbeque spot known as the “Best BBQ South of the James.”
1313 Hull St | Manchester | pigandbrew.com
Pig and Brew prides itself on being the “Best BBQ South of the James.” Co-owners Lamont Hawkins and Lamarr Johnson are a pit-master with 20+ years of food experience and a mixologist, respectively. Let’s just say, we trust them!
Start off with an order of the Hillbilly Fries, fries topped with cheese, bacon & NC style pork bbq. Then move on to your main entree from favorites like the Smoked Wingettes, the St. Louis Spare Ribs, the Smoked Brisket, and the Meat Lovers Trio—your choice of three meats from brisket, ribs, smoked wings, fish, pulled chicken, or pork bbq.
The sides that come with most plates are just what you’d expect at a BBQ spot—mac and cheese, potato salad, collard greens, corn bread, baked beans, and more.
“We tried the Brisket Burnt Ends Sandwich with grilled onions, coleslaw and barbecue sauce and the Minced NC Style Pork BBQ. Both were delicious but the Pork BBQ was the best minced pork sandwich I've tried. We'll definitely be back.” - Yelp Review

Local pizza joint with scratch-made specials.
3345 W Cary St | Carytown | maryangelaspizzatogo.com
It wouldn’t be an honest list of restaurants that deliver if we didn’t include at least two pizza joints. This is Mary Angela’s Pizzeria, a local pizza spot that offers pizza as well as a variety of scratch-made Italian dishes.
Featured menu items include their signature Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Buffalo Chicken Sub, Manicotti, Chicken Parm Dinner, Eggplant Parm Dinner, and Linguini Calamari.
Guests also love ordering their salads because they serve them with their homemade vinaigrette. It’s delicious, and you know it’s made with real ingredients and care because they make it in-house. It’s also nice to order a salad to get some veggies in if you don’t like them on top of your pie!
Pro tip: order one of their cannolis for dessert.
“I've been eyeing Mary Angela's for awhile and I'm upset that I waited this long to try it. Large portions for fair prices, what could be better?? If you're craving a delicious pizza with fresh ingredients - This is the spot!!” - Yelp Review

Voted best burgers and fries in town by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Each one of their burgers is hand ground and hand formed into 1/3rd lb patties from fresh, never frozen meat sourced exclusively from Schweid & Sons.
