Very nice but not pretentious. I will say the meat was a little tough, but that is consistent with meals I’ve had in Latin America. Flavor was great. Colombian empanadas were exceptional. Not many places to get them in NOVA, let alone Fairfax. Great place. More

Discover Fairfax

Located across the Potomac River about an hour west of Washington, D.C., Fairfax lets you take a quiet break from the bustling national capital. However, don't assume that a small town means limited restaurants. Fairfax is home to everything from Indian food to fine Italian dining to American favorites like hamburgers. For a true taste of down-home Virginia cooking, be sure to try a sweet potato biscuit. Virginia is home to half a dozen varieties of heirloom sweet potato, which taste best when cooked into a flaky biscuit and served as a ham sandwich. Many local restaurants serve Southern-influenced comfort food, but you can enjoy Italian, Indian and other international cuisine as well. Head down Route 236 or 29 to find a popular restaurant while you're in town.
