  1. Let's say that someone who is prone to motion sickness and is traveling with an 8 year old who may or may not have the same tendency was planning a trip on the Auto Train and wanted to have a light lunch before boarding. (You can turn in your car as early as 11:30 am and they start letting passengers aboard at 2:30 PM, the train doesn't depart until 4 pm.) It looks like Lorton Station is nearby and that Pane E Vino got warm, if mixed, reviews here previously. Fireside Grill is not open for lunch on our departure day. Is there anywhere else I should be considering? Thanks!
  2. I am starting a book group through my library (Kingstowne Library - Fairfax County) on April 6th called Books & Brews in partnership with Forge Brew Works where the group will meet. Our first meeting will be April 6th at 7:00pm and will continue on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30pm. We are in the process of choosing which book to read. I've selected three and are asking those interested in attending to pick one. All of the titles are readily available in the Fairfax County Library system in a number of formats. If you have a library card, simply stop by your branch or go on
  3. In the space formerly occupied by the credible Pane e Vino, there is now Casa Tequila. It appears to be the second outpost of the original Casa Tequila in Purcellville, and offers what might be the suburbs' most extensive tequila menu. With the same outdoor seating as Pane e Vino and with such a selection of tequila, there should be some pleasant happy hours for the Lorton Station residents. The menu -- which I admit that I have not yet sampled -- looks like a decent attempt at "Mex" with a few "Tex" thrown in to attract the locals. This area is not big on true Mexican flavors, which is a
  4. Located just off Gunston Road in Gunston Plaza next to the US Post Office, this place surprisingly has 13 locations in the area. The pizza is good as are the subs, pasta and daily lunch specials which are typically $8-10. Service is consistently good as well. Atmosphere is typical vinyl green-checkered table clothes and the Italian flag, tacky Italian inspired, framed pictures and wall paper adorn the walls. Kitchen is somewhat open and the place is always clean and pretty busy for lunch - I have probably eaten here 25 times, and oddly just now adding this post. If you happen to be in Lo
  5. I planned on having lunch with my kids today & considered going here, since it's close to where my son lives. But, being lazy & not wanting to drive & thinking it might be crowded after the review in WaPo 2 days ago & not having too much experience with Filipino food, we decided to try The Corner, a Filipino restaurant in Lorton that's been on my list. I wish I'd gone sooner, it was very good-totally out of the way location with 3 other tables occupied while we were there. We split an order of the lumpia shanghai & the pancit bihon w/ shrimp, E ordered the chicken ado
  6. Not sure what's happening here. Across the street is Casa Tequila, a second outpost of Casa Tequila in Purcellville. Taquila is trending in Springfield-Lorton....Viva Tequila is opening in the Concord Center on Backlick Road across from Mike's, and about 25 feet from Eleni's. There are two or three other Viva Tequila restaurants in the area, but I don't know if they're a national chain, a local chain, or separate mom-and-pops that like the name Viva Tequila. Springfield already has plenty of mediocre Tex-Mex, from Chuy's at the Mall, to El Paso and La Hacienda in the Backlick corrido
  7. I have eaten at the Fireside Grill a number of times, and I've never been disappointed. It competes for my attention with the very competent Pane e Vino across the street, but Pane e Vino is closed on Mondays....so I stopped in for flat-bread takeout at Fireside Grill. The highlights of the flat-bread menu are the Margherita and the Chorizo. Both were extremely good, better than any pizza in the general Springfield-Burke-Lorton sprawl. I'm still devouring and licking my fingers. Yum! The wood-grilled steaks and seafood are also very good here. I have also had the Mixed Grill and the
  8. I am on a mission to taste my way through southern Fairfax County and I've contributed some Springfield reviews over the past year. I have eaten a few times at Pane e Vino in what appears to be the Lorton Town Center, if that's what it's called, but it sure looks like it's trying to be one of those now ubiquitous Town Centers popping up everywhere. DR will have to expand the restaurant guide to include a Lorton listing now. Pane e Vino is family owned, and therefore checks the box of not being a chain, so that's the first positive sign. It has its own pizza oven, so that's the second positive
  9. I got takeout from this place a few days ago, the chef used to have restaurants locally, here & Richmond, that I never visited. I ordered chicken ka prow, pad c ew, & a shrimp po boy-results were mixed, but mostly good-shrimp po boy was for my picky daughter, who moaned about not saying she wanted sauce on the side-4/5 large butterflied shrimp, smothered in remoulade, w/ tomatoes on bread, w/ soggy, but well-seasoned fries (I ate most of the shrimp). Tom didn't like his pad c ew, the noodles were clumpy, & it tasted 'heavy'. My chicken ka prow was not what I was used to, modest in
  10. On my way back from the library today, I stopped to pickup a lunch special from Hunan Deli, which despite it's name, serves Korean food. It's in a small strip mall on Telegraph Rd., near Rt. 1. I ordered the jjampong, a spicy seafood soup, & it is delicious. I've had a bit of a cold & congestion, & the taste of this will clear your throat right up! It's a small place w/ just a few tables, but most of them were full with folks happily eating big bowls of yummy looking food. I look forward to going back & trying something else...
  11. South County High School is in Lorton, Virginia, and they have a thriving Art Department in no small part to one of their three Visual Arts Educators, Justyne Fischer (our own member justyfischer). Here is their Facebook page. This is a perfect example of students doing what they love, and earning a good living. Parents: Don't fret if your child is creative - support and nurture their creativity ... it will pay off!
