The food is really good. Especially the seasoned fries with ranch dressing and the burgers taste fresh. The place is small and the service is really slow, so sometimes it is hard to find a place to sit. The beer is cold.

It's cash only now and the food is good, but greasy. It was almost featured on Man vs Food, but it wasn't. My uncle also owned it from 1950's until 1970, when he died. My mom worked there during the 60's and took me to work with her every single day.

The Cav is the Cheers of Lynchburg! Walk right in and you are made to feel like you have been eating and drinking there forever. We have visited The Cav several times a year for the past decade, and it just keeps getting better. Manager Jeff keeps the friendliness alive and well, with a hug or handshake to just about... More

The burgers here are so delicious and the platters come with 2 sides. I highly recommend getting fries as one if not as both of your sides. It comes with homemade ranch, which if you have had ranch fries, makes for a delicious meal. If there is one bad thing I could say about it would be the difficulty finding... More

Always one of my local favorites. You must try the fries with seasoning and ranch! The Ruben is my personal favorite but also enjoy the burger and club sandwich. Not a fancy place but a great place to enjoy delicious bar food.

They do in fact have the best burgers, hot dogs, and fries in town, as well as a cozy-at-home-feeling dining area. You can even carve your signature into the tables/benches.

I have not figured out why people say this place has the "best burger in town!" They do have great fries and a good selection of beer on tap. However, the burgers are less than desirable.

They have the best burgers and seasoned fries in town!!! Wish it was larger so they could accommodate more people at one time, but other than that no complaints. Wait staff is nice, quick with getting your food out, and they even sell their "secret" seasoning for the fries so you can make them at home!
