Second Place: Crazy Greek
Third Place: Zorba's Restaurant
Richmond diners have loved Stella Dikos' food for a long time now, with no signs of letting up. Some people whine about the noisy, crowded dining room, but it doesn't seem to stop anyone from going. If you want to avoid the line to brunch, try Stella's for meze ora, that delightful time between 4-6 p.m. Monday through Friday, when select small plates and adult beverages are dirt cheap and downright delicious. Despite being a pain in the dolmas to get in and out of its parking lot, the hole in the wall Crazy Greek delivers large portions, low prices and the friendliest service. Zorba's does the same with a bigger dining room and more parking.
