“Friendly atmosphere with average, strip mall food”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Took my family to Riverside North Cafe for Sunday brunch. The breakfast buffet is similar to those served in many hotels that provide free breakfasts. There were scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, sausage gravy, creamed beef, french toast sticks, and a fruit bowl with fresh melon and grapes. While I have no complaints about the food, there was nothing about it that made me say wow. It was average. The employees were very friendly and the price was reasonable. For a quick, inexpensive breakfast, it served its purpose.

“Great burger joint”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

You can't get any more casual than Riverside North. Walk in, sit where you want and if there aren't enough seats, move the tables where you want them.
The flat-pressed burgers are served with the cooks' thumb on the bun, but it's so good you don't care. The beer is cheap, the burgers are cheap, the onion rings are hot and cheap. Everything is fast.
There's TVs on every wall and coloring books to borrow for the kids.
The staff shares all the tips, it seems, and you don't have a dedicated waitstaff, as far as I can tell, but everyone does a good job of watching out for everyone else.
The decor is all University of Virginia, and the TVs are all sports, all the time.
