The food was good (try the excellent grouper sandwich but the po-boy sandwich needed another oyster or two), the waitstaff was friendly and efficient and the menu was broad. My only negative was the price of the meal. The price we paid just didn't align...More

This little cafe was delightful and the waitress very friendly, but the food seemed a little expensive for such a small, value oriented town.

Everything we ordered was tasty! The restaurant is busy and cheerful. They are good at what they do and you can tell by the crowd.

Casual atmosphere and good food. She crab soup is excellent as was my Oyster PoBoy. Shoestring French fries are a nice side. Stopped at NN Burger for desert---a Coffee Milkshake.

Just another add to the good cafe/diner food vibe at the CarWash Cafe! They are a busy place with good reason: the food! And despite being busy, they are friendly and knowledgeable of their menu. Even though NN burger is just on the other side...More

i have seen a customer inside in a wheelchair, but I don't know how they entered so I can't advise the best way to do that. I would suggest calling them to ask about it. The number is (804) 435-0405
