Star service sets Tex-Mex restaurant apart

Sometimes, you just need a burrito.

Located in the Main Street Marketplace, near the TJ Maxx right off the Green 2 CUE bus line (about a 20-30 minute walk from campus), the Coyote Grille in Fairfax offers a variety of Tex-Mex cuisine in a fun, casual dining environment.

Local Thai restaurant with surprising decor stuns taste buds

Without a doubt, Thai food is one of my favorite cuisines. Ever since it opened, I have been looking forward to going to Sisters Living Room Café in Old Town Fairfax. Unfortunately, I never had  the chance to try it until this past Saturday. It was an experience worth waiting for.

The restaurant, located at 4004 University Drive, is easily accessible by riding the Green 2 CUE bus or walking 15-20 minutes from the Fairfax campus.

OPINION: Pilot House lacks the efficiency of Ike's

The line at Pilot House is really, really long. It is not that I am frustrated simply with the size of the line, but I am frustrated with the number of staff working the registers—it is never more than one. The line can literally be wrapped around to the point that the ends touch and Pilot House will still have one person working.
