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.

Me and my family came here after church, we were starving. We were not happy about the chicken and dumplings and the macaroni and cheese. Those 2 entrees were nasty, they were not tasty at all. The dessert that I had (apple pie) was not warm...who wants cold apple pie? However the chicken tenders were good and the waiters are... More

In Delaware we aren't blessed to have the best Southern food on the Planet. We have begged and pleaded at the headquarters in Baton Rouge to please build one in DE or MD, so far nothing. This afternoon we were blessed to enjoy good Southern food with outstanding service and right-on the money quality.

This is one place to go for variety, good food, great service at a reasonable price. Two of us ate chicken fingers, six sides and two desserts for $22. Super service. Cliff, the manager and his staff. Cliff has been the manager of Piccadilly for 25 years. Now we know why we see him every time we stop. The chicken... More

Well I must say that I am very disappointed in what has happen to Piccadilly Cafeteria through the years. The Piccadilly Cafeteria in North Carolina have been closed for Many years and I guess sadly I guess I'm starting to see why. On my way up to Richmond I decided I would stop and eat at the Piccadilly Cafeteria in... More

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
