You've got to be kidding me!!

#3 Radford Food

Radford has quite a stereotype in this area. In fact it's the kind of stereotype that gets most Virginia Tech students traveling there. Simple put, it's a party town, or at least seems to be. But if you think that's all there is to do in Radford (here comes the page catch phrase) You've got to be kidding me!!

--Big thanks go to Todd O for pointing me at these tasty places--

Now everyone knows that I love Thai food. I was very excited when a new place came around to get some good cheap tasty Thai. Even though it is a bit of a ride to get there, the Thai House has some great food all nestled into what used to be a mexican restaurant. I am not really sure what it is going to look like in there now as it is closed for renovations until October 11th (2003).

It was very strange to eat anything but "burrito deluxe" or "number F" in a setting like this. However, I was quickly won over by the lunch special, which allows you to get soup, a spring roll, and the entree of your choice (unless you are Eileen who got the entree of the chef's choosing) for about 7 bucks .Dinner changes to a larger menu with more options, but no combo special.

Tricky thing about Thai house is that lunch runs from 11am-3pm. Dinner goes from 5PM till close. And they are closed on Monday. So keep that in mind. (I'll have to check to see if those hours change when they reopen)

So what do you do when you are hungry on a Monday? Go check out the Mongolian BBQ at King Buffet. A huge cheap buffet where you can get soft serve ice cream!!! I really dig this place. First buffet is all prepared food, soups, french fries, complete dishes, chicken wings, everything. The second one is where the Mongolians kick in their two cents.

Mongolian BBQ woks like this. You get yourself a bowl and pick out the kind of meat you want. Then you pick from noodles, or rice and dump that in. (I like the thai noodles myself) Then you get to add in anything you want on the list of general chinese food bits. Save room for the tiny corn they are at the end of the line. When you are done you can add whatever kind of sauce you want to it and hand it to the man with the cool giant chopstick things (you'll see). In a minute or two, you have a tasty dish.

The unfortunate part about this is, you have to have some kind of idea as to what is going to go well with what. i accidentally picked up some of that fake crab meat. Not a fan usually, but I thought I would give it a try. Oh well, live and learn (and then you get Luvs). Ok I have just managed to make myself completely starved.. so time to get some Lucky Charms.


Take Prices Fork away from Blacksburg,
When it dead ends at a light, turn right onto Pepper's Ferry Road
At the next dead end, turn left onto, um... some road
Thai House is on the left if you hit the bridge you have gone too far
After you cross the bridge turn left
(Currently there is a detour along this route, just follows the signs)
The Mongolian BBQ place is on the left after Macado's and the U-Haul place
