ISO good lunch in Leesburg

We're going to Leesburg on Thursday and want to have lunch in the historic downtown area (King St?). I've heard that Lightfoot is supposed to be very good (looked at their lunch menu and noticed the fried oysters on greens that sounds wonderful). Thanks.

    Tuscarora Mills is much better in my opinion.

      There a new pizza place called Fireworks Pizza. Tried it a couple of weeks ago and it was great!

        My wife and I love Lightfoot. Tuscarora generally takes a second to Lightfoot on this board, but the issue also hasn't been directly addressed for a little while now.

        Full disclosure: b/c of the general favor on this board to LF over TM, I've only ever gone to LF, but it has become one of the "special dinner" places for us.

          I love them both, but maybe for dinner, I lean toward Lightfoot, but for lunch I lean toward Tuscarora.

            Try Cajun Experience on Loudon Street then pick up a pie at Mom's Apple Pie.

              Wine Kitchen downtown. Food is really good and great wine by the glass selection. I would go there over Lightfoot or Tuscarora.

                No contest! Go to Lightfoot. Best place in the area.

                  Thanks everyone! We had to postpone our trip today - going tomorrow. I think we're leaning toward LIghtfoot (because of those fried oysters on greens :) but we're adding all these suggestions to our special "eats list" that we keep in the car (so that we always have options in case a restaurant we're headed toward is closed/out of business/etc).
