This is a nice place with a casual feel. The quality of the food is very fresh. Fresh bread, fresh ingredients, fresh everything. The staff are nice and friendly, and the place is always being cleaned. The owner must care, because the sentiment shows in...the people working there.More

It looks small from the outside, but there's plenty of seating. Very clean, casual atmosphere. The deli is in the front with a display of many items in refrigerated cases. The restaurant is decorated with many local business ads, but it somehow works. The menu...has numerous delicious choices not typically found in Richmond. The service was excellent. It has ample parking.More

On a recent visit, I did not experience what I had come to expect. I was barely and gruffly greeted and motioned to a table. Half the servers were not masked. Had 4, yes, 4 different waitresses—3 were extremely unfriendly, rushed, and rough. Breakfast potatoes...were burnt with bad taste; bacon was fatty and undercooked; eggs were extremely greasy. Atmosphere felt stressful and tense and chaotic and it was impossible to get the attention of any server once our food was delivered, so no napkins, no coffee refill, and no water the entire meal. I hope this was just a bad day, but it was very disappointing as I had told a friend how great it was and this was her first, very bad, impression.More

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
