Nuts's Quick Restaurant Guide to Charlottesville


As a response to those indecisive hours spent wondering where to grab a bite in Charlottesville, I evaluated restaurants according to four criteria: My pet theory is that very few places will score high in all four categories. Therefore, when choosing a place to munch at, you will have to weight these categories on your own.

Currently, my rating system is very simple: a '+' under a particular category denotes a "yea" or endorsement, a '-' denotes a "nay" or disapproval, a '.' denotes "hmm" or average, and a '?' denotes a "huh" or ignorance/indifference. If you feel I should be more prolix in my ratings, send me mail. Check out the Corner Map for locations of some restaurants.
