WTF Nando’s!?

• I love Nando’s

• I love outdoor dining

• I love Rio

But P L E A S E give me real flatware, a stack of napkins, and the soda machine (paper cups are fine I guess).

Livers and wings have been in every order I’ve ever placed here. But you’re out? Not cool. At all. Oh yeah and corn. Corn would be good.

Seriously, I get that the community sauce jars are not a great idea during a pandemic, but you’re obviously washing the plates and bowls with a high temp commercial dish machine, so why not real flatware? I understand the touch screen soda machine might be a bad idea, but also why no kids apple juice?

Huge fail. You can do better. The end.

Red’s Eats

You will sit through 20 minutes of traffic. Then you will wait in line for 20 minutes while traffic crawls past you in a sometimes deafening roar. Then you will shell out $14 for a lobster roll. Then you will be truly happy. They claim to have the best lobster roll in all of Maine, and I believe them.

Chopstix (4/5)

This place is fantastic, fast and the people are friendly. Everyone I have every spoken with about it has loved it. I always get their “home style” meals, which are prepared differently than the same… (via Shawn H. on Yelp)

Hungry Tiger (4/5)

It’s like McDonalds of Kabob… only GOOD. Apparently, the owner is no stranger to the restaurant business–and it shows. If you like the food at Moby Dick, you will love this place. This was my first visit, so I have not sampled much of the menu, but I tried some of the items my friends had as well and can tell you the kubideh is first rate, the chicken, perfectly marinated and delicious and the lamb is absolutely spectacularly seasoned, tender and mouthwatering. I want more for breakfast as I write this! The place looks a little like a fast food joint. The location is great if you are in or around Tenley. I happened to get a parking spot during evening rush hour directly in front, as did two friends. There’s also ice cream. Go for the mango. (via Shawn H. on Yelp)

Crisp & Juicy (5/5)

Like Helen, I have no idea what’s in the sauce. But I love it, so it must be bad for you. I don’t think you could consider any of the food at Crisp & Juicy as healthy, but you could consider it as FANTASTIC. Of course, the chicken is excellent. Most people know this place because of the chicken, but they also have excellent chorizo, a decent steak and the flan is a dessert that you should save room for the next time you’re there. I was really surprised to see only one review here. I was only a few weeks late to be first! Again, agreeing with Helen, Crisp & Juicy certainly doesn’t need a rave review from anyone. They have a lot of happy customers talking about how great the food is and how wonderfully they treat customers. (via Shawn H. on Yelp)

Clare And Don’s Beach Shack (4/5)

Spring was officially here this week and I found Clare And Don’s Beach Shack on a warm early evening. If you don’t try the Shrimp and Grits, you will never know what you’ve missed.

The service is a little slow and there are children working. It’s exactly like being at the beach… but you’re next door to The State Theater in Falls Church. Don’t go if you are in a hurry but definitely go and be ready for a great meal.

Oh and the bar looks pretty serious, too! (via Shawn H. on Yelp)
