I have a picture of this place with the signage still up.. somewhere. At any rate, this Monticello Road fried fish takeout is no more, listing in the Feb 2011 phonebook, but not the Feb 2012 one. I'm not a big seafood fan, but the place had its devotees.

The building was obviously some other type of fast food joint originally, but I can't quite place it.

UPDATE 12 September 2017 -- OK, I found the pictures I took on 4 November 2011. I probably didn't post them back then because it was such a gray day and they turned out so blah, but a sunny day won't bring the signage back:

Virginia's Grille (or "Grill" in the phonebooks listings) looks to have been a walk-up Edna's type operation on Monticello Road, just north of I-20 (and near the Amoco Food Mart). Commenter tonkatoy indicated that he recalled a The State article on the place, but like him, I am unable to find anything in the online archives.

Interestingly, the property is currenly being offered for rent as retail rather than restaurant space.
