Rapidan Dam Store - That Dam Humor

This is a little cafe-bait shop-fishing snack shop located near the Dam in Rapidan. Nothing too exciting but they have very good food and you can also purchase t-shirts. They do not have a menu, just a lighted sign outside the kitchen. The "menu" consists of dam hamburgers, dam fries, dam get the picture. You can buy a t-shirt that says "The best dam store on a dam site".
