Dots Back Inn
We had a great dinner tonight at Dots Back Inn. This is a great little neighborhood (Northside, not our neighborhood, unfortunately)place that's been around for years. It was featured on Food Network's 'Diners, Drive Ins and Dives'. Just really good, basic food - great burgers, sandwiches, etc. with interesting specials. Mr. Kim had the bleu cheese burger and I had fantastic fried oysters, house made chips and great Brussels Sprouts. Having had such exquisite oysters last month in NOLA, I was almost afraid to have oysters back in landlocked Richmond VA, but took the risk. They were wonderful and when I asked what kind of oysters they were, I was told Gulf of Mexico oysters! AKA - probably the same ones we'd eaten in NOLA! Our meal was just over $30 with salad, burger, oysters, sides and tea and beers. Great value - especially considering the quality of the food and we like patronizing local merchants.
