The White Spot, a greasy spoon diner open late night is forever a favorite spot for locals and students on the UVA Corner. Opened in 1953 in the former home of a beauty salon where a white spot had once marked a swivel chair, the fame of this comfort food dining palace travels as far beyond Charlottesville as the dignitaries who patronize it. Home of the famous “Gus Burger,” which includes a burger with a fried egg on top, The White Spot is sure to satisfy any late night or mid-afternoon hunger. An all-time great Charlottesville institution. And now on tour? The Gus Bus!
