Tasty Take-Out Options

Tasty Take-Out Options

Northern Virginia has many wonderful restaurants that you should definitely try out at least once. While restaurant seating may be limited right now, many restaurants have the option of offering take-out. It may not be the same as enjoying your favorite foods inside the restaurants’ unique atmospheres, but now you don’t have to go without your favorites. Personally, I love ethnic foods and trying new dishes, so take-out is a great way of still doing that. I also love to support local small businesses, so if you haven’t yet, I encourage you to give these a try.


Taste of India – Located just off of Lee Highway, in the Gainesville Shopping Square, Taste of India has top-quality Indian food. There is limited dine-in seating available. They also offer curbside pick-up, and they have reasonable prices. Location: 14706 Lee Hwy

El Tio Tex-Mex Grill – Just off of Lee Highway and Linton Hall Road, this restaurant has, in my opinion, the best homemade salsa and guacamole. They also have limited dine-in, pick up, and a nice front porch dining area for those cooler days. Location: 7527 Linton Hall Road


Spitoney’s Pizza – This is a family-owned restaurant that’s been in business since 1975. The pizza is very good in my opinion. There is outside seating, and they also offer pick-up. Location: 5063 Lee Hwy

Effee’s Frozen Favorites – This is an ice cream stand that’s two doors down from Spitoney’s. You can walk over after having pizza! Effee’s has excellent soft serve ice cream and shakes. This is also a locally-owned business. They have sugar-free treats available, and the outside seating is nice! Location: 5051 Lee Highway
