A fine cafeteria

We stopped in Picadilly while travelling to the DC area. The servers were quick and our waitress checked on us frequently to make sure we had what we needed. The fried fish I had was great and the vegetables and salad were fine. On the whole, it is a fine cafeteria.

This was once one of my favorite places to eat - not any more! Took forever just to get our food at the serving line. On to p of that our food was cold. My wife's chicken was still bloody. We told the waitress - she said that they could heat it up for my wife! No apology - nothing.... More

This Piccadilly could use a little updating! Food is OK, use to be better. Of course I went in about 30 minutes before closing and the food had been there for a while and I guess they were not about to refresh it at this late hour!

Their fried chicken breast was juicy, moist, well seasoned, and delicious. The greens were outstanding - better than Virginia Diner who has a stellar reputation and has been featured on DDD; the black eyed peas were delicious and the corn pone reminded me of being a little girl and dining with my grandparents and great grandmother.

I pass through Petersburg annually and have eaten here 4 times. The restrooms are always filthy. We bring a large group. and they always run out of food. In fact, I have witnessed occasions when they keep all entrees in the kitchen except the chicken fingers which they push on the customers. Last night they displayed "Little Debbie" types of... More

We wanted something fast to eat after shopping. This cafeteria is inside the mall. Lots of choices but its was just gross and tasteless. We got our food going down the line and when we stopped to make our drinks, all the cups were dirty. I mean I picked up like ten cups and every single one was nasty. Either... More

Hadn't been in a cafeteria for a long time and now I can't wait to go back there to go to this one. The food was excellent and the value was good too.

The place is always the same. It is cafeteria food and you know what you will get. Always a great place for lunch. You get good choices. Dinner can be good, but again it is cafeteria food. Nothing gourmet or cooked when you order.

My school stopped here while driving down to Disney World. The food was greasy, flavorless, and far from fresh. My friends and I actually had to take Tums after dinner. The decor was beyond tacky and the bathroom was deplorable. And for how awful the food was, it was overpriced. Eat ANYWHERE but here.

Nasty. Unfresh. The staff talked way too quietly for me to hear anything. The Mac and cheese Was not fresh bug the Mashed potatoes were spot on.
