Restaurants

Countless dining options surround the neighborhood of Hioaks. The family and date-night options include many chains located near Midlothian Turnpike, though residents can find many locally owned restaurants scattered through the area as well. A local favorite, the unpretentious Chicken Fiesta serves up Tex-Mex dishes that will please your stomach and your wallet — and very quickly too. The most popular menu item, the rotisserie chicken is a staple of many Tex-Mex dishes, but the flavors make Chicken Fiesta's dishes unique. As an added bonus, Chicken Fiesta offers delivery service.

Locals frequent the very laid-back O'Toole's Restaurant & Pub to release some stress and enjoy evening and weekend beverages.

History

Hioaks lies within the Richmond City limits. The city of Richmond has a deep and rich history extending back to the colonial period. The city was founded in 1737 and established as the Central Virginia trading destination for settlers and traders. The city was founded on the James River, which serves as a major river providing access to the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. As the city has grown, Hioaks has also expanded with the development of CJW Medical Center at the heart of the neighborhood.

The rich history of Richmond can be discovered by residents with a visit to a number of historical museums and societies. The Science Museum of Virginia and the Children's Museum of Richmond provide an outlet for all your creative juices and are located just a few miles from Hioaks. Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens hosts annual events such as holiday lights and spring celebrations.

The Powhite Parkway borders the northern edge of Hioaks and grants residents access to communities lying along the bypass interstate system.

It acts as a bypass for commuters and travelers around the busy city roadways.

A taxi service costs around $15 due to the distance and possible tolls.

The South of the James Market provides farm-to-table choices for Richmond residents. In the winter, the market caters to the same residents but provides cold weather-friendly options as the farms west of Richmond change their crop production for the seasons.
