Jennifer Pullinger at Taking Root has a great roundup of some of the great takeout food up here:
When I’m in need of some sort of takeout lunch that doesn’t taste like “takeout,” my gastronomical inclinations lead me to Church Hill. That instinct has been so finely honed – and quite frankly spoiled – by a wealth of neighborhood grub options, namely Proper Pie Co., The Dog and Pig Show, Alamo BBQ, Sub Rosa Bakery, Union Market and Stroops Heroic Dogs – a diverse, distinctive and uncommon group of takeout “joints” all within a one-mile-ish radius. . . eateries you’ll find no where else, which should make RVA proud.
