Has extensive menu. Gluten free options and a keto breakfast option. Server was very sweet. Outside eating options which is important during covid.

I had the NY strip over salad, London Broil sandwich with fries, and potato salad. It was simple but delicious. I'll take this kind of fare any day!! The steak was succulent and seasoned wonderfully. I might quibble at the prices, but it's probably because...these are Richmond prices, not Roanoke! I surely go back!More

I love potato pancakes and I honestly have not had a good one since my wife's mom passed away years ago. That changed last weekend when we ate here. Their potato pancakes are awesome!!! Also, I love whitefish salad and that too was awesome and...fresh. We drive by here a few times a year on our way to Charlottesville and this will now be a must stop. Service was also excellent.More

1st time there. Greeter and waitress were warm and friendly. Eclectic atmosphere. Excellent service. Got the special (grilled pastrami, fries, pickle). Hot and very tasty. Expertly cooked. Fries were hot. They were very busy but kept service time to an acceptable level.

I work across the street from Boychiks and often order lunch for my office or just myself. I am always blown away by the service. These folks can prepare a lunch order for 15 people, with special requests, and have it delivered to my office...within 25 minutes. They always get the order perfect, arrive on time (today it was to the minute) and are a pleasure to speak with even when they are slammed. When, at the last minute, I needed to provide lunch for our CEO's meeting this was the place I went to - they took my order and had my food ready in 10 minutes making me look like a hero. The food is simple - sandwiches, salad, breakfast options. There is always something for everyone here and I've never had a complaint. My favorite is the NY strip over salad, which is less than $10, delicious and healthy. The presentation and indoor dining area is nothing fancy, but that's not why you should go here. The only con is their parking lot at lunchtime.. prepare to circle a time or two. Don't waste your money at places like Panera when you can grab a great lunch here!More

Boychiks is our favorite breakfast place and one of our favorites for lunch. Great service and food.

Really good breakfast! Much larger than you would think from the street. Great old school restaurant feel. Waitress was amazing. Such a hustler, waiting on many tables. Extensive menu and great attention to detail (IE: a large enough stirring spoon was provided for my huge...iced coffee. The only thing that kept it from being “excellent” was the potatoes were a bit dry. I would definitely go back!More

Boychiks has always been and will continue to be the he best breakfast option in Glen Allen. Reminiscent of a NJ Diner they offer quick service and great portions. Prices are phenomenal as well. I recommend the Corned Beef Hash or the pancakes! Enjoy
