My family and friends all love this place. (Except my one son who disagrees-doesn't like their pizza). Their Spicy Shrimp and pasta is wonderful and their lunch portions are very generous. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Definitely the best pizza in the Northern, VA area and I've tried them all. The sauces are all made in house with freshly bought ingredients, that makes for a nice sweet sauce that is unlike anything else in the area. Great environment, and the bar next door is pretty good too. For the Irish lovers, there is Guinness on tap,... More

I went to this place based on other reviews, but was very disappointed. When I walked in, the hostess was sitting in a booth near the door and didn't bother to get up and greet me until it was apparent I was planning to stay for dinner. I ordered the angel hair pasta with Italian sausage and meatballs and a... More

Brother's Encore is close to my house so it's a frequent dinner spot for my family. I sometimes go there for lunch as well. The pizza is the best around and the subs, pastas and salads are good choices too. There is a pub side to the restaurant where on Friday nights karaoke is featured and most Saturday nights live...

Recently moving into the area, we discovered Brothers Encore and it's become one of our new regular haunts. We especially like Shaun as our server--very friendly and pleasant. Food is delicous and oftentimes, some is taken home for the next day. I recommend them!

I went in to Brother's Encore on a Wednesday night, sort of by default as the place I tried first wasn't open. Only the bar side was open, complete with a very loud juke box and a few regulars standing around. The waitress was friendly, and they did have Guinness on tap so it wasn't a total disappointment. That said,... More

I really enjoy the food, although the wait can sometimes be long if you eat at the restaurant. The pizza is excellent and so are all of the dishes i've tried. I prefer to order takeout instead of sitting down to eat inside the restaurant.

The service here is just okay. I have eaten hear a handful of times and each and every time it has been the same. The food is average. If you order a salad your dressing comes in a little package unless you get the house Italian. The spaghetti is good. The food worth trying if you have never eaten here... More
