We had a good meal at the Manassas location so tried this location. The website says you can make a reservation (since there were 5 of us for Saturday night), but when we arrived the hostess says we don't take reservations. So why does the website advertise this? It wasn't necessary cause the dining room never got more than 1/3 full on Saturday night. The tables never turned over and we were there for 2 hours visiting. Seems the establishment makes more of their revenue from the bar area which was very lively with numerous college football games on the TVs. I don't understand this cause the food is really good. Our waiter was not good. He was rude and not very attentive. Perhaps he was put off when we all ordered water from the start, but since we were his only table in the dining room you think we would have better service. We ordered the Southwestern Egg rolls to start -- as good as the Manassas location but they served it with plain gucamole rather than the avacado dip (in the Manassas location). The dip is far better. Two people got the soup and salad (big bowl of soup and plate of salad). The soup was excellent. Two got the teriyaki chicken -- very large portions and my husband brought some home. I got the mushroom cheeseburger and fries -- which were good but nothing special. Had to ask for refills of water and the waiter never checked on us after he brought the food. Remember to ask for rolls -- they are very good. Overall nice evening cause we were able to talk (two in the party are hard of hearing).
