“Does this count as a Restaurant? You bet it does !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Kind of bizarre to be reviewing a super market as a great restaurant but this is one terrific place. So good that I tried to talk my wife into moving nearby if we ever return to the DC area.

It just kind of a radical place to buy breakfast, lunch or dinner as they just have the best prepared food area I have ever seen in a supermarket. They have a terrific wine store, their breakfast baked goods are just the best, their coffee bar is ceratinly as good as Starbucks, their lunch selction is to die for and I now go there for dinner and work on my PC and have a leisurely dinner in a relaxing, soft chair.

If they had any rooms I would stay the night. Best supermarket I have ever been to !

“Food Shopping here ROCKS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

This place has everything! Large food court with good food including a sushi bar, very large international, organic sections, cheese bar, olive bars, and an entire room dedicated to wine. I look at Wegmans as a combined Whole Foods and a regular grocery store plus MORE. Also, very good prices. Lots of specialty items. I have always been able to find what I need. The downside is the store in Fairfax is very crowded on weekends ALL the time. I am not sure about the weekdays.But I know that and go in with the mindset of going with the flow, because I like shopping there. So not a problem for me. Service is also incredible. All the employees are knowledgable and helpful, and checkout lines are never long.

“Perhaps the best supermarket in Northern Virginia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

With prices that can rival discount stores for their own brands, and quality meats and produce that can rival the upscale stores, Wegmans is an incredible place to shop. We have been able to find items not available in other stores. And they have a food court that I often use for lunch. The wine store has a great collection of wine from all regions of the world and price ranges. And if you are a cheese or olive nut, you will want to stop by the cheese or olive bars. Just great!

“Not just shopping, an outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

It's always fin to go to Wegmans, not just to shop, but to grab a bite to eat to and maybe even do a little fun kitchen/table top shopping. They have a great selection of butters. Their prices are VERY good compared to stores closer to DC where we live. A must to see if not to shop at on a regular basis. It is quite far from our home, so we consider it an outing and plan on lunch before shopping. They even have a great lunch meal at a great price that includes an entree and two sides. It's a special meal every day. Very nice flower department at this location too. The arrangements are lovely.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We lived in Rochester, NY for decades. Wegmans flagship store is there. When they moved into the N. VA market, it was such a blessing to anyone who has ever shopped at a Wegmans grocery store. You name it, they have it. Their prepared foods are incredibly fresh. They have all kinds of cuisine available, made to order in some instances. Their $6 or $8 three course meals are fabulous. Pastries are perfection. Their coconut and chocolate fudge cakes are to die for. Their wine cellar is amazing and is located in the ground floor at the Fairfax store.

Wegmans has opened in several locations around the Washington, DC Metro area: Sterling, VA; Ashburn, VA; Lake Manassas, VA; Fredericksburg, VA; Alexandria, VA; Fairfax, VA and more. You can go to their website at www.wegmans.com for other locations in VA and MD. Do not miss this place when visiting.
