Second Place: Galaxy Diner

Third Place: Silver Diner

When nothing but a diner meal will do, Richmond's fave is River City Diner — and why not? With eight kinds of burgers and peanut butter and jelly milkshakes, this place suits the family. But it's just as appropriate for a late-night shot and plate of nachos. Galaxy takes care of the diner niche in Carytown with its spacey look, fried pickles and nuclear waste burger. Short Pumpers have Silver Diner, and while it's a chain, it wins fans for sourcing fresh and local ingredients, not always a diner priority.
