The newest shopping center in Charlottesville connects 5th Street and Avon Street, but most importantly, it’s home base for Wegmans, the mega-specialty grocer phenomenon. It draws from throughout Central Virginia and offers virtually every item necessary for happiness. Nearby, within an ocean of parking, are other big boxes retailers like Public Lands, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Marshalls. Copious shopping is the primary draw, but the 5th Street Station has also evolved as a vibrant restaurant destination. More than a dozen restaurants of diverse styles and flavors have their grills and burners on high in expectation of your visit. What are you waiting for?

High on our list of “must visit” restaurants are:

  1. Kanak Indian Kitchen — elevated Indian dining experience produced by 3-generations of a successful, local restaurant family.
  2. Timberwood Tap House — sister bar and restaurant to the uber popular Timberwood Grill on the north of town, this is a great place for watching the game or huddling with the team.
  3. Extreme Pizza — this small artisanal pizza chain is run by a father-son combination who ensure that your pie is fresh, hot, and filling.
  4. Krispy Kreme — the sweetest experience on the south side of Cville, bring the whole family for the happiness served here!
  5. Alamo Draft House — stellar, early movie selections enable Alamo to outsell all other theaters in town, but it’s their food and beverage service that makes your experience unique.
  6. Chimm — a Charlottesville favorite for Thai and Southeast Asian street food lovingly served by a longtime local family
  7. Al Carbone — traditional Mexican food “cooked over coal” with spicy variety and friendly service.
