“First Class Breakfast and Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you want to go out for breakfast or lunch on the Northern Neck (or even Eastern Virginia) and be assured of great food at a reasonable price try Kilmarnock's "Car Wash". A bit crowded and a plain decor but the food trumps all - it cannot be topped. Adequate variety with some local specials, including crab and scrapple. Good service, hot dishes served hot; friendly and helpful.

“Huevos Rancheros Knock it out of the park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

An awesome stack of tortilla, couple of fried eggs, another tortilla, a heep of black beans topped with salsa, avocado, and sour cream. Huge enough for 2 or your breakfast and lunch. Funky little place inside a convenience store turned "open kitchen". Super friendly and fast. Come early, big crowds on Fridays and weekends!

“Amazing again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

Have been here every time I have been to Kilmarnock. Very good crab soup and friendly staff, this is a great restaurant tucked away in a car wash.

“Great food”

How many times can you say you ate at a car wash, well this is the place for you. Very good food and service and take out. Give it a try, you won't be sorry.

“One of the best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

We love the Car Wash Cafe, and recommend it highly. Both breakfast and lunch is great. Don't let the lines disturb you, it's worth the wait. Too bad their not open for dinner!
