Christiansburg: Where to Eat During Covid

Two weeks ago, there was a blog about where to eat in Blacksburg and this one focuses on Christiansburg. The resiliency our local restaurants have shown during this difficult time is impressive. Our local restaurants are an important part of the feel of our community. They are often the first to sponsor kids' sports teams and educational funds. Please support our local businesses during this time.

Amelia's Pizzeria and Restaurant

This gem in the Cambria area has always been a great place for family meals and relaxed lunch meetings. Some people love spaghetti night, but their cheese steaks are a favorite of mine. The takeout pizza is also great.

Open for curbside, take out, or door dash. If you would like to have your food brought out to your car please let them know when you call the order in and call and let them know you are in the parking lot.

Follow them on Facebook for specials as they keep the favorites on the menu and add other items.

Their online ordering page is through Door Dash, which takes several fees from the restaurant. To avoid that so all of your money goes straight to Amelias, phone the store to place an order at 540-381-7878

Dude's Drive In

If you haven't tried Dude's yet, it's a throwback to a different time. It's already set up for C19 regulations because it has always been a drive in. You can go to the window to order and car hops will bring it out to your car when it's ready. They serve typical drive in fare, like burgers, hot dogs, and bbq that garner high praise from locals. The real treat is the hot apple pie - don't leave without ordering a slice. You can also drop by in the mornings for breakfast items like biscuits, breakfast plates, and egg sandwiches.

Take away and parking lot dining has always been their thing!

Due South BBQ

Considered by many to be *the* source of fine local BBQ, owner Marie March has won regional and national awards for smoking and for her sauces. The pork BBQ is my favorite menu item, but others swear by the brisket. Pro tip: leftover bbq freezes well.

They're offering curbside pick up and delivery options. Small order delivery charge is $3.99 and they deliver in Christiansburg or a 5 mile radius around the store. For curbside, just pull into a space close to the front door and they'll come out to greet you.

You can order from your car, or if you'd like to order ahead for pickup, just use their website, the app, or call the store at 540-381-2922.

Macado's

For sandwiches, plates, and the best chili around, Macado's is a go to choice. The location in Christiansburg is currently offering takeout and delivery.

For takeout, you can call ahead at 540-381-8872, visit their website, or go inside to place your order. You can also order delivery via the DoorDash app.

Mockingbird Cafe & Bakery

If you haven't tried the Mockingbird Cafe yet, you're missing out. This local cafe has the feeling of a cozy European bakery. Their pastries are great as is the Brugh Coffee they serve, but if you're looking for lunch, look no further than their array of hearty sandwiches on delectable breads - they're best paired with a cookie or slice of cake.

They're open Tuesday- Saturday 9:00a-1:00p. And you can order by phone at 540-382-3432 or online for curbside service.

The Farmhouse

The patio is open at 50% occupancy, but if you want one of these coveted spots, you'll need a reservation. Their new menu is limited, but takeout is also available from 4pm-8pm. Follow them on Facebook for specials and updates on the menu. Don't forget to order a bottle of wine to go with your takeout dinner.

Call 540-251-7600 to place your order.

RINER AREA

Buffalo and More Restaurant

Have you had a buffalo burger? Bison is a great tasting lean red meat and the burger toppings are top notch. The bison are raised locally and if bison isn't your thing, the owners also offer other cuts of meat from local farmers. Definitely add the bison jerky to your order for a snack the next day. Check Yelp for their latest menu. Stop by for homemade meals and desserts.

Call 540-381-9764 to place an order to pick up curbside or at the counter.

Aly’s Family Restaurant

There are a lot of places that serve pizza on this list, but a local favorite is Aly's Family Restaurant. And it's not just pizza. They also offer pasta plates, American pub food like nuggets, salads, and calzones. Don't leave without an order of baklava for dessert!

They're offering pick up, curbside, or delivery Tuesday through Sunday 11am-9pm. Just give them a call at 540-381-7800 to place your order.
