    Food was fantastic, drinks were awesome and the live music was icing on the cake! So few places in the area have live music so it was such a treat to be able to eat great food with great friends while listening to great music!

    Food was great tasting and great value- loved gyro tacos! Drinks were honest and tasty. Music great but too loud. Staff friendly and attentive. Wish more variety and more food selections ( more salads, soups). Will definitely go back and recommend to friends.

    We had exceptional service and ability to visit with friends over a delicious meal. The wait time for food was appropriate and didn’t have to wait for a table with our reservation . The manager greeted us and spent a little time getting to know our group. The music was a great addition to our Friday night get together. We ve been to Earps before , and now our friends are going to Earps as well. Our friends are sharing their great experience with their friends too. We look forward to seeing the changes as Earps grows and becomes a solid part of the downtown main fairfax eating, entertainment district .

    We loved our first visit to Earps! The owners were so friendly and service was great. Live music and set up makes it so casual. Neighborhood feel! We will return over and over. Hush puppy quesadillas and Dan Dan noodles are a must try! The latter had perfect spice! Enjoy!

    Decided to check out Earps after seeing it in the Top 10 for DC Suburbs. Everything I had was superb. The Crispy Brussel Sprouts, Spicy Szechuan Chicken Dumplings, and Chicken & Andouille Sausage Gumbo were excellent. Also the Key Lime Pie was very good. All the drinks were very good, much better than normal.

    A fun place to go for live music, a beer and dinner. Excellent service. It's in a "pop-up" location right now and eventually will be moving into their permanent location.

    The food was HORRIBLE. Even the beer was bad. Service was kind, but SUPER SLOW. Dan Dan noodles with Tofu were NOT edible - way way too spicey! Tots with bulgogi were NOT edible. Sauce on edamame and peppers was slimey and messy and did not have a good flavor. I was super excited about this place - been following them on IG... I will NOT go back. It was an awful experience.

    Great place to go and hear unique music. Food was amazing, we got a variety of the appetizers and lived all of them. All the drinks were amazing too. My favorite was the daiquiri. Owners are always there working and out of the floor, checking in with the customers. Great time, can't wait to go back.

    Have been wanting to try Erps pop up for awhile now. Went to open mike last night. All the musicians were great! There were four guys, each sang 3 songs at a time and then switch out. The Manhattan I had was the best one I have had in Virginia. The bang bang shrimp, Caesar salad and BBQ shrimp&grits were all top notch. I can’t wait for the real ERP’s to get up and running. We will be back for sure👍

    The food is INCREDIBLE. And so are the drinks. I got the edamame/shishito peppers and the bang bang shrimp. Both were so good!! The staff were all super friendly and the music was great. If this is what the pop-up looks like I can’t wait for them to open the big place!

    Josh, the owner, personally directed us to the location—-how’s that for customer service! Our party ordered the gumbo, gyro tacos, bang bang shrimp, and hush puppy quesadilla. Everyone was happy with their selections. I chose Earp’s because they looked like they made a good Classic daiquiri (house-made simple syrup!) have live music, and was located centrally to our party. The daiquiri was very good, and though they didn’t have live music that night, their service was friendly and fast. We will definitely return!

    The owners, staff, food, drinks and experience at Earp's is far above the average restaurant in this area. Can't wait until they open up their 300 person music venue! 15/10 would recommend.

    People that work there are very attentive. The menu changes every few weeks and the food is great. We had the shrimp appetizer but think that they should put 4 instead of 3 shrimp so you're not fighting for the last shrimp.
