Small Business Spotlight has been a great way for us to share some of the local businesses we come across in Hampton Roads. Once a month, we talk about one locally owned business and share their story.
Recently, while facing the classic dinner indecision debate while trying to figure out where to eat, I thought it might be nice to have a list to look at with some ideas. It always seems that you never think of a place you want to try when hunger strikes.
We chose five local restaurants to share with the hope that you’ll remember the next time your dinner indecision debate occurs. This month we’re looking at places in Chesapeake. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and it’s slightly biased as well. These are all places adored by TREG staff. Happy dining!
1. Burrito Perdido: 1229 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, VA 23322
This awesome burrito joint is tucked into a gas station, but don’t let that stop you from eating here. Fresh salsa, big burritos, and lots of other options like tacos and salads. A lot of food for your money, fast, and friendly. Closed on Mondays.
2. Wicker’s Crab Pot: 4201 Indian River Road, Chesapeake, VA 23325
Owned by a fourth generation waterman, Wicker’s is a relaxing and delicious way to experience great seafood. Check out their website for specials and hours.
3.The Cutting Edge Café: 1434 Sam’s Drive, Chesapeake, VA 23320
Tucked in a strip of stores, be sure not to miss this amazing spot. Fresh, interesting specials, and tasty salads and sandwiches mean something for everyone. Closed on Saturdays.
4. Kervan Kebab House: 1757 Parkview Drive, Chesapeake, VA 23320
Looking for something a little different? Lentils, kebabs, and other Turkish dishes make this a favorite for when you just don’t want the same old thing. Order something unknown and don’t worry one bit- it’s all fantastic.
5. Pizza Bella Vista: 927 N. Battlefield Boulevard, Chesapeake, VA 23320
Brick oven pizza at it’s absolute finest. Great for lunch or dinner with pizza choices that range from classic cheese to Mediterranean. Also offer salads and tasty appetizers.
