Fredericksburg Area -Business lunch near interstate 95

Looking for a good restaurant for a business lunch for 4 people for a couple of hours near Fredericksburg Virginia. That's the 1/2 way point for those coming from Richmond and the others from DC. Any place where they can sit and do business and eat well close to the interstate?

  1. There is a HUGE shopping area OFF I95- exit for RT 3 Culpepper.
    Exit towards Culpepper and 50 ft on the right is the entrance to CENTRAL PARK............

    THere are tons of places to eat there-
    OUR favorite is SMOKEY BONES BBQ ( it is not a BBQ joint but more of a restaruant/sports grill). The RIBS (Memphis Ribs) are to DIE FOR. This is a chain that we go to in FL all the time- I WISH they had them in RICHMOND, but they don't.

    In addition,in this SAME shopping center is a OUTBACK RESTAURANT..............

    PLUS a TGI FRIDAYs, CHARLEY'S,Carraba's Italian. PLUS TONS MORE but these are the nicest where you can sit down and talk.

    go onto the website for CentralParkShoppingCenter- I cannot post the link as it will be taken off-= but google it..

      Not seeking chain restaurants... any local mom and pops?

        Most of the better, non chain restaurants are going to be in the downtown, historic district. That's probably about 10 minutes from the closest 95 exit. I don't know your criteria but here's a quick lunch list in no particular order: Sammy T's, the Capital Ale House, Claibournes (fairly expensive), Bangkok Cafe and Jake and Mike's.
        Finding mom and pop places near the interstate is a little tougher. But some ideas would be Kenzos(sushi), South Vietnam, Vinny's (local Italian chain), Laziza and Guru (order off the menu....not the buffett). Hope that helps.
