    A very pro RKBA restaurant manager

    Some of you may remember Christy Contrell who was the dining room manager at Golden Corral on Providence Rd up until several years ago when she left to become the manager of Carrabbus Italian Grill on Midlothian. I thought the deal she said was offered was too good to be true - turns out I was right.

    She is now the dining room manager at the newest Golden Corral in Colonial Heights. She has invited us to have an OC breakfast there soon. Told me that she sees a lot of OCers there and of course they are close to Ft. Lee.

    It's not that much of a drive for central Virginian's - it's as close time wise as Rise & Shine Diner. I see this as being part of the Greater Richmond Metropolitan Area.

    She won't be working this Sat. morning, so it will have to be another weekend........soon.

    2501 Conduit Avenue, Colonial heights, Va. - very near the Temple Ave exit on I-95

    Sounds good to me...,

    not exactly just down the street, but sometimes it's nice to stop by and say thanks to folks who have been supportive of us in the past, and keep those connections.

    Maybe Colonial Heights? I don't think Hopewell has a GC.

    Good catch - thank you.

    Indeed, it is the GC in Colonial Heights. Amended the OP.

    It is at the intersection of Temple Avenue and Conduit Road, just before Southpark Mall/shopping center.

    I've been crap at making breakfast in the last month or two, but I would make the drive. Not a fan of GC, but I've always thought it was a great place to have an OC breakfast.
    In our quest for knowledge we must be prepared for and armed against misinformation.

    It's true that when you snoze, you lose. Yet, you seem to enjoy the food and accompaning conversation a lot.

    Resolve the issue and just do it.
