VA: Kerr Lake Area, Clarksville and areas towards the east

I'm not turning up much of anything for this area.

I'm hoping to find a terrific breakfast or lunch spot, opened Fri. or Saturday during winter.

Any ideas?

    There probably isn't much along there. Rt. 58 is one of my least favorite roads to drive on. Clarksville used to have a nice little downtown area, but it has been bypassed by a new bridge a few years back. I don't know how that has affected the businesses downtown. That would be my best guess to find something in Clarksville.

    East of Clarksville on Rt. 58 is South Hill at I-85, and Emporia at I-95. Both of these towns are crossroads towns that will basically have the typical interstate exit fast food places. Going back west to Danville may be more promising. Like I said, Rt. 58 is not a fun drive.

      I appreciate the info. If I find anything worth reporting on I'll post!

      Hopefully someone will chime in with a last minute surprise of a gem...

        Years ago I remember eating at the Horseshoe Restaurant in South Hill, and thinking it was pretty decent for what it was. Is that still there?

        I ended up in Clarksville. The downtown still has a few places. There are two supper club looking spots, a Chinese place, a pizza/sub shop and a McDonalds. Due to the morning storms I ended up here around 3 p.m. Nothing looked lively, so I ate my travel snacks...

        Looks like it could perk up on summer weekends with the boating/fishing folks.
