ONE YEAR AND COUNTING. Main Street welcomed a new addition to Culpeper’s foodie scene when Grill 309 opened its doors in March of last year. Recently they celebrated their one-year anniversary and customers flocked to the locally owned bar and grill which features fun American fare with a twist. For example, The Doughnut combines the rich full flavors of a burger but rather than a bun – you guessed it – let’s sandwich that baby in a big doughnut. Their onion rings, sweet potato fries and feta fries are legion. You can also opt for a turkey guacamole wrap or a Greek salad if a juicy burger – perhaps between a grilled cheese sandwich – doesn’t tempt you. Add to that a rotating tap wall of 12 beers and a selection of wine and you’ve got a winner. Owners James and Brittany Laughorn couldn’t be happier with the success they’ve seen in their first year of operation. Dog owners don’t shy from bringing their pooches as their outside patio accommodates canine colleagues. This warm weather is perfect. Grill 309 owners James and Brittany Laughorn are pictured here along with Belmont Farms owner Jeanette Miller, and Belmont staff member Cheryl Buys who presented them with their own award to celebrate their anniversary. Check them out at 309 S. Main Street. Phone 540-764-4902.
