    Enjoy a laid-back lunch at the Pizza Pub, located just across the street from Danville’s iconic courthouse. Try the Miss Piggy or Mediterranean Chicken pizzas, Stromboli or Philly cheese steak sandwiches, or the Chicken Avocado salad. Add a cold draft beer or glass of wine if the mood strikes!


    Not in the mood for pizza? Try Captain Frank’s Hotdog Emporium for specialty hotdogs and milkshakes, Chocolate-N-More for deli sandwiches and artisan chocolates, Melton’s Deli, a local lunch hotspot, or Taqueria Los Amigos for fresh, authentic Mexican fare.

    If you’re in the mood for finger-lickin’ good BBQ, head to Brother's Bar-B-Que on South Fourth Street (or “SoFo,” as locals like to call it) for some of the best barbecue around. Juicy ribs, mouth-watering pulled pork sandwiches, tangy coleslaw, bourbon-peach baked beans, and homemade pies are just the beginning. You can also enjoy brews from their taps, and more often than not, some form of live music.


    Not crazy about Q? Try Jane Barleycorn’s Market & Bar for unique gourmet small plates or Mallard’s sports bar for burgers, wings, and beer.
