I was in Lynchburg about eight years ago on business and asked a local what resturant he would recommend going to and his reply was "you have to go to Perkeys!" I took his advice and was impressed. Finding myself back in Lynchburg again I...More

I had the Cowboy Cut Porkchop special. It was grilled and seasoned perfectly. This was my first time at Perky's, but I'll be back with my family. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable.

I've been coming here for years. Always delicious. If you're about romantic atmosphere and quiet music, this isn't the place. If you're about great food and service, then it's perfect.

Looks like a greasy spoon roadhouse...circa 1976. Dated interior. Was told good things about it by the locals...had my doubts. Once the steak and baked potato was served I changed my mind. Food was excellent...good quality and cooked precisely to order. A little pricey, and...More
