Lexington, Virginia dives? Good cheap eats? Local hangouts?

Taking my somewhat dysfunctional family to an overnight in Lexington, Virginia. One likes great food at any cost as long as there's plenty of wine, another wants sweet tea or diet Dr. Pepper and anything without mushrooms, and Mom thinks paying $8 for a hamburger is an insult and anyone who buys anything to drink at a restaurant is a fool when water with lemon is free.

Help. Me.

I have to take the three of them to dinner somewhere. I'm thinking local dive with decent food. Formica tables are okay. Suggestions?

  1. Perhaps try the Southern Inn. Or two slightly nicer places are the Red Hen and Bistro on Main.
