For Helen Holmes, Ms. Girlee's Kitchen is a family affair. Listen to her story on this week's Eat It, Virginia!

RICHMOND, Va. -- In these uncertain times, people can take comfort in advice and guidance from others. That includes ideas on where to eat.

In the months since COVID-19 shutdown dining rooms around Virginia, more than 16,000 people have joined the RVA Dine - Take Out & Delivery Options Facebook group to share stories, restaurant reviews, and food photos.

Kevin Clay, one of the group's moderators, joined Scott and Robey this week to discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of managing such a large social group.

Additionally, Robey spoke with six RVADine fans and got their insight into the restaurants they've visited again and again based on quality food and to-go service.
