My favorite sandwich on earth!

Anytime I am driving past Richmond (this time on my way to the Keys) I stop here for the USS Brooklyn. This is my favorite sandwich on earth. Jerk chicken, peach chutney, roasted banana ketchup and cabbage. It is amazing! Call about twenty minutes from the city, hop off 95, pick up the... read more

My husband and I came here for lunch. It is very small and is frequently on a wait. The subs are huge and delicious. The pimento cheese sandwich with avocado was yummy! My husband ordered a ginger beer and he raved about it all the way home. We would definitely come back here again. Everything that was coming out looked... More

Once we found the restaurant, we had a fantastic lunch - I'm still thinking about my sandwich. The "Ms. P" had pimento cheese, avocado, fresh tomato and crispy bacon on grilled texas toast. It was perfect. My husband had half of sub, which was HUGE. The restaurant is small, so you might have to wait for a seat. It has... More

Waitress rude and acted as if we had the plague! She never visited our table after our food was served and she dropped our credit card on the table very harshly and walked away! We will never visit here again!!!

This is a fun spot for tasting excellent menu items. We had the green eggs & lamb, the no mas huevos nuevos and also the banana cream pie which is amazing. We ordered it as dessert to our brunch even though we were already stuffed, but it was light and fluffy and a perfect sweet ending to the meal. The... More

Four of us ate like kings and gueens there Friday night. Fortunately the motel was only 15 minutes away. Two of us spent the next 30 minute or so on our throne.

We tried it twice and the sandwiches are so delicious. My husband loves this place. We tried the USS Virginia battleship & it was so yummy. Also had the USS Wabash, it was amazingly cooked. The beef was well done. Highly recommended. You'll love the arts & the staff.

Dropped in after dropping off our college kid at VCU. Had lunch -- pork medallions and grits with a New Orleans-style red gravy. It was fabulous! Huge sandwiches filled with meats and interesting veggies in French baguettes, on Texas toast, and on ciabatta kept going past us, and they all looked great. Classic Richmond interior, with exposed brick walls, closely... More

I went to Black Sheep on a Sunday evening. Finding a place to park was a bit of a pain, but I didn’t have too bad of a walk when I finally found a spot I could squeeze my SUV into. Inside the place was packed too, I was lucky to grab the last table available when I showed up.... More

This place is worth the trip for the unusually large and colorfully named Battleship sandwiches. Part of the Black Sheep's "War of Northern Ingestion" Menu. As a storyteller, I appreciate the storytelling nature of their menu. Southern fusion is Richmond's specialty, and this place is most charming just for these sandwiches: the SS Sultana:grilled spiced ground lamb and beef with... More
