The proprietors of Hurley’s Tavern are committed to offering locally-sourced beer and wine, and fresh food in a relaxing environment. Designed by cofounder Janice Rossano, Hurley's menu is evenly split between food for meat lovers and vegetarians, so both groups, as the Richmond Times-Dispatch notes, "can nosh together in stomach-pleasing harmony."
The carnivore menu includes steak and cheese fries, breakfast nachos, homemade meatballs, and half-pound servings of boneless wings tossed in a choice of more than 10 sauces and dry rubs; herbivore options include garlic hummus, fried mashed potatoes, house-made black bean and rice patty wraps, and pita pizzas topped with house-made broccoli macaroni and cheese. Hurley's also caters to gluten-free and vegan diners with entrees such as burgers made with bean and rice patties. A variety of local craft beers on tap and Virginia wines help wash down meals, which unfold inside a dining room where nary a seat "doesn't have a view of a TV," the Richmond Times-Dispatch happily reports. Patrons can also entertain themselves in their back room Colonial Downs off-track betting parlor.
