Cuban burger has some of the best burgers in Harrisonburg. Their Cuban sandwiches and the "chop-chop" are also delicious options. They also have a bar area where their menu is also available.

Jimmy Madison's is a great place to get some upscale "Southern Comfort Food" and/or your favorite bourbon. They have a wide selection of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and entrees. During the warmer months, the rooftop dining is a great place to order a few drinks and try a few appetizers. Fried Pickles, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Pimento Cheese Fondue were recent hits with guest from out of town.

No visit to Harrisonburg is complete without a stop at Kline's. I grew up enjoying Klines and have continued to over my 50 years. The Custard Style Ice Cream is a local favorite and an institution since 1943.

If you are hungry for pizza but not the restaurant chain verity, try Bella Luna. Great seating area or eat at the bar (they also have great drink options served by great bartenders). I haven't had a bad pizza there but a couple of favorites are: The Don, Bella Bianca, and the Ring of Fire.

If you are craving a chili dog there is no other place in Harrisonburg to get one than Jess's Lunch (East Market Street). Though they are known for their hotdogs they have great burgers and other options available. One of my favorite memories growing up in Harrisonburg was mom and dad stopping by Jess's and getting a bag of Jess's hotdogs and bottles of Pepsi's to go and then going to the drive-in theater. (Just a side note here, dad would go in and get the hotdogs because at that time Jess's was more of a bar that just happened to serve great chili dogs and wasn't a place where a family would go in and dine. Or at least that was the impression we had as kids growing up). 2nd side note. If you get chili dog's to go, be sure and throw the bag out in the outside trash can or your host is going to give you a bad review!! :-)

For some of the tastiest Taco options in town, be sure to check out Magnolia's Taco & Tequila Bar. Great Tacos and creative mixed drinks. Their rooftop is a great place to happy hour but seating is limited.
