Not Bad for what it is

It's a fast casual eatery. The food is okay, but nothing great. Its nothing special, besides a VERY casual place to eat pub-grub/diner-food (burgers, fries, wings, milkshakes, etc.) and watch sports. It's themed to be like a sports stadium. I'm sure it's very popular as a communal spot to watch TV... read more

A step above a typical burger and fries fast-food joint, Fanfare offers burgers, seasoned fries, wings, pulled pork, salads, and a nice array of sides. You order at the counter but your food is brought out by wait staff. Drinks are self-service at the mix your own soft drink machine. You can also get beer and wine (dine-in only). The... More

So I've been to both this location and the one in Greenbriar. My first visit to the Greenbriar location was the best, have not been able to get a burger that good at Fanfare since. The next three times I went there it went from bad, to OK, to meh. The only thing I noticed to be different between my... More

This was my 2nd visit to this location and want be my last. The food and service was great. If you have children they will enjoy themselves too. I think I counted 10-12 TV's with a wide range of programs to choose from. Sports, news and cartoons for the children. There is also outside seating if the weather is not... More

Been here a couple times with my family and we love it. My kid loves their sweet potato fries and their selection of hot sauce is dynamite!

I saw the neon lights as I was driving on hwy 50. The place looks inviting from the outside for a quick bite. I had Philly cheese steak and a local beer for $17. I thought the price was a little high. The food is okay

I eat here regularly ever Tuesday night to enjoy the 50 cent wings. I also have tried the burgers. The food is very good and at a good price. I look forward to my weekly trips to this restaurant and will continue to do so long into the future. The service is also very good.

It's in a great spot, in the Fairfax Corner complex. Everyone should be able to find something they like, but it's not an extensive menu. The food is typical sports stuff, with some fun additions like mac and cheese on top of a burger. The wing sauces are pretty good, although nothing all that hot. The milkshakes are stand-out, though,... More

Geez, how many over priced burger joints can you have that serve shakes? This one is extremely over priced and not really worth it. Food was decent, but for a family of 4 we had burgers and shakes for about $70. Really? Burgers?

Went to Fanfare eatery today for lunch excited about the new place because I saw it being built these past few months, and it looked good from the outside. What a huge mistake! Initially I was not going to write a review until I realized this place is a chain, so I figured what the heck. The indoor part is... More
