For Clean Eats owner and Chef, Rhonda White, cooking is more than just a passion. It’s a way of life. Just off Exit 29 of Interstate 81 in Virginia, in the quaint little town square of Glade Spring, White is crafting food with local fresh ingredients and creating wholesome meals.
“I’m a huge supporter of using local, fresh ingredients. I want people to know I’m not using any processed foods,” says White. “My potatoes will be peeled and cooked daily, not opened from a box. You cannot have great food without great ingredients.”
White is originally from Swartz Creek, Michigan, where she grew up with family members who were active volunteers in the community. “There was always a lot of food preparation being done. It seems like I’ve been surrounded by awesome food my whole life. My mother and father and grandmothers were amazing cooks.”
White moved to Southwest Virginia 26 years ago after working with a host of chefs along the way. I was so impressed by those who started their dishes from scratch and watch customers enjoy and interact over a great meal in a great place.
Clean Eats serves Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 am – 8:00 pm. Menu items include salads, sandwiches, burgers and killer entrée’s. Each week, two daily specials are offered featuring soups, sandwiches, meat choices and pasta.
“Right now we have an awesome Blackberry Grilled Cheese sandwich and our own Pimento Cheese made from three different types of cheeses and chipotle pepper. Our salad dressings are house-made and we have an awesome lime vinaigrette that is to die for, “says White. “Our burgers just might be the perfect food. While the ingredients are simple, the juicy hand-patted patty served with various gooey melted cheese, lettuce, tomato, mushrooms, etc., produce award winning results with our customers.”
“Entrée’s include chicken, beef, pork chops, salmon, and brats. Weekly specials are very successful. Wednesday is a huge favorite – Spaghetti.”
We also create some pretty awesome sweet treats ranging from mini-cakes, pies, and cookies, to name a few.
Clean Eats gives locals a chance to get out and eat, a chance to pop in and have a really nice meal at a very reasonable price. “I think of my restaurant as my house, you are my guests. I treat it the same way I would if you were coming to my house for dinner,” says White. Come see me. You won’t leave hungry, I guarantee it.
