Description: It‘s Star-lite now, and hopefully forever. But this location was originally home to Soble‘s and his famous burgers from 1987 to 2000. Devil‘s Kitchen was next (but only for a little while) and then we took over in late 2001. Ever since, 2600 West Main Street has been Star-lite . . . just the way we like it. As a tribute, we still offer the famous "Soble‘s burger" and of course — if it ain‘t broke, don‘t fix it — we‘ve kept the neighborhood bar atmosphere that‘s kept this place so popular in the Fan for decades.

Go early if you want to eat. Get a few drinks and leave by 10. That's when all the pin stripe shirt wearing jackasses roll out to troll for girls in empire waist shirts. The place gets crowded like a japanese subway train at rush hour. It can be fun if that's your scene.

“Blind Recommendation Pays Off”
Reviewed 23 August 2007

We were chatting with a very interesting older couple at the wolf show in Bush Garders Williamsburg. Since they were from the area and we were leaving the park to start our drive home, we asked them for a dinner recommendation . Their 30-something son told us about the Starlite in Richmond. Since we are adventurous souls we decided to tyr it if we could fine it. It was easy to get to - take Interstate 64 to the 5th St exit. Make a right on Main and proceed about 1.5 miles to Robinson St.

Food was very good. I started with the house salad w/ a red pepper vinegarette - very different, very tasty. My wife had the Seafood pasta in the Alfredo sauce. It was excellent. I had the chicken piccata with linquine on the side. Also very good, tangy without being tart. Lightly battered and fried just right. Did I mention it had capers with it.

They have a good beer selection on tap. The place is very friendly. The bartender greeted us like we were old friends. Waitress was cute and personable. She told us that the pasta is half price on Wednesdays.

I heard while I was there that they have an excellent brunch on Sundays.
