I had the pulled BBQ chicken... Yes they have non pork and vegan options. Yeah! They are open til 2am on the weekends. And since Norfolk almost shuts down at 10pm that tip is very important.

I had lunch at Chow with Old Dominion University colleagues. We were greeted with a smile and seated promptly. It was my first time eating at Chow and I was impressed at the start. This is a very casual eatery with blackboards on every wall...More

Went after work with a bunch of coworkers and out-of-towners. Shared the Pimento Cheese plate which was a wonderful appetizer enough for 4-6 people (we had 8 people). Everyone had a drink or two and an entree. I had the black bean burger which was...More
