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.

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...

I discovered this place through word-of-mouth while studying for a year in Richmond. Being there seems like to travel back to the 60s! The atmosphere is very cool, the staff nice and they offer the biggest hot-dogs I have ever had in my life! If you're lucky enough to still have an appetite for a dessert afterwards, their milkshakes are... More

Walking into The Galaxy Diner, I had high hopes. The decor is diner meets outer space ambiance. Chrome and leather with interesting light fixtures and art in the Trendy Carytown area of Richmond. That's where my hope ended. The manager pointed to a table where we could sit but there was spilled water(?) All over the floor just in front... More
