Mekong is the OG Richmond beer spot and I'm honored to have finally made it. It's not much from the outside - or inside, really, as it's a nondescript strip mall storefront and a highly lit Vietnamese restaurant. But the food menu and beer list are top-notch. Tons of variety and the highest quality. The service was very good. They don't have a bottle list but will let you check out the coolers, which have a ton of vintage bottles from all over the place. Excellent variety on the taps, too. Great mix of breweries and styles. The prices are fair. Overall, an essential Richmond visit.
Odd that a Vietnamese restaurant has such an incredible selection of beer. The ambiance is interesting and they have an outdoor patio outback with lots of parking. They have ~50 taps. Uber over and visit both Mekong and their neighbor.
Great restaurant - what's better than Vietnamese food with great beer? Lots of bottles and tons of stuff on the menu like most Southeast Asian places. Loaded up on food here before hitting up the Answer next door. Highly recommended.
An unnecessary stop with the Answer next door. 50 draft beers but most of them are common stuff. A few Answer beers, but just go next door. Looks run down. Food smelled good, but unless you want more traditional Thai food, I don't see a reason to come here.
I’m still not totally familiar with the location of this place, but I finally made it there for my bachelors party. Busy on a Friday night, but still enough space to easily get 6 people seated immediately at around 8pm. Food was really tasty, selection of beers was nice, not totally mind blowing, but probably one of the best "restaurant" locations I have ever been to, certainly the best Vietnamese restaurant beer list I’ve ever seen. Staff was really friendly.
Located hell out of the centre of Richmond (take the westward bound bus no. 19 there), the venue is a very popular Oriental restaurant woth a great selection of American, mostly local beers. The staff are busy and not very service-minded but polite enough. The selection is quite impressive, given the location. Fair prices. A nice place for dinner out of town, otherwise not worth your bother unless you really have to gather your RVA ticks here.
Odd to find a pretty awesome set of taps in an otherwise pretty average looking Vietnamese joint. Food was above average and service was efficient. With so many great things on tap, it’s a shame they only serve full pours.
Some parking in the front and quite a bit in the back (which was not obvious to me to begin with). My food was very good and well worth the price. Good draft list and pretty good bottle list. Beer was priced reasonably. Really good fast service and reasonable prices. They didn’t seem to have anything smaller than a full pint. I can see why people like this place especially consider the food.
