Deep Fried Oreos and Veggie Sandwiches

I try to eat here every time I visit Richmond,VA. It's small, crowded and noisy but the hummus wrap is great and you just can't beat deep fried Oreos a la mode. It's become a tradition for me.

Whenever my friends come for the weekend, they insist on the Galaxy for breakfast. If it is on a Sunday make sure you get there before noon if you do not want to wait. All of the traditional breakfast foods and some you only read about (not exoitic). Great bloody mary's as well. Absolutely some of the best staff I... More

Was told about Galaxy Diner from a friend who gave it 2 thumbs up. We finally had a chance to visit and can only say... WE WILL BE BACK! The atmosphere is fun and the service is great. Our food came out fairly quickly and we were not disappointed. The onion rings are out of this world! For dessert we... More

My friends wanted to eat at this diner, and I was pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. Several of us enjoyed their Grilled Bennett, a tricked up grilled cheese, and another friend enjoyed the Grilled Vermont Turkey Sub. Our server was fast and very helpful, and the tab was reasonable. Our only disappointment was that we were on... More

This restaurant looks like any old diner from the outside, but the menu selection is unique, portions are very generous, and the taste will make you wan to come back to try something else. The black hole pancakes are delicious!

Comfortable booths, varied menu... southern touches (it is Richmond), reasonable prices, inter-galactic decor, nor for your grandmother, but will do for a basic meal...

This was a strange menu with a lot of cool options. The place could have been cleaner but it was still a funky cool atmosphere.

Eating out, it is so hard to find good vegetarian options. However, the Galaxy Diner offered plenty of options including a veggie dog! I opted for a falafel wrap and it was fantastic!

Had blackened chicken wrap and everything was very fresh. Good fries and the cucumber salad and fried pickles were outstanding.

Diner food with a bad sci-fi theme. One of the few places in Carytown open past midnight (rolls eyes), so a great place to go if you're in theater and need food after rehearsal. Get the fried pickle...you know you want to...
