The Tin Lizzie Cafe
Ranked #20 of 116 Restaurants in Richmond
Description: The Tin Lizzie Café is a cross between your grandmother's porch where you can smell the comfort food cooking in the kitchen and an eclectic museum. As you enter, Marilyn Monroe - skirt swirling-greets you. A little further back, Humphrey Bogart levels his eyes at you from beneath the brim of his hat. A New York cityscape adorns the back wall and in between all these great murals, little bits of trivia and history dot the walls of one of the oldest buildings in downtown Richmond. So, come on in. Enjoy a deli-style sandwich, the daily hot lunch special, some dessert and coffee. Meet the locals, learn a little about our community and sit a spell!

Near downtown on the National Road with good food and an awareness of the history of their town and the road they're on.

This was definitely worth a return visit. We were not disappointed. Once again the food was hot, fresh and delicious.

A great place to get a wholesome meal. Even my six year old grandson was happy with his meal. The staff was so pleasant and gracious. Thank you

We were a bit skeptical because we walked in at 2:35 and the place was supposed to close at 3PM. Rather than order a freshly made sandwich we decided to take a chance on the plate lunch specials. My sister ordered the pasta with a salad and drink. I ordered the meat loaf with mashed potatoes and green beans. We each paid less than $8 and the food was hot, delicious and not at all old or dried out as we had feared it might be since it was so close to closing time. The service was friendly and prompt. This is a great diner when you are in downtown Richmond. You will leave full and satisfied without your wallet taking a big hit.
