Lunch in Fairfax--ideas????
Any ideas for a decent lunch in Fairfax? We're going to be near the Route 50 exit off the highway.
I think the OP is referring to the Fair Oaks area where Rt 50 intersects I-66. Over there, you have the chains in Fair Oaks Mall (Texas de Brazil, Cheesecake Factory, etc.), Moby Dick and Chutzpah in Fairfax Town Centre, and the Whole Foods in Fair Lakes, and Wegmans near Lee Hwy.

On the other end of that block Pomodoro makes a good pie. Slices are okay, but if you have a group, get a fresh quattro stagioni pie.
If you have just a bit of time, you can cruise West on 50 to near 28. Sichuan Village is there (order off the menu only). Bungalow Billiards has (imo) the best traditional hot wings in the area. There is a good pho place on the back side of Bloom or whatever that grocer is, and there's Willard's BBQ. All of these are more than worth the drive in my book. And it's really only 10 minutes if you hit all red lights.
