Food isn't amazing, but for less than $15 per person for a buffet, it's not a bad option if you want a variety of food. Their brisket is the best thing there! There is also an AMC movie theater in that same plaza.

Salvadorian / Mexican food. The pupusas, tamales, and sope de res was good. I loved the sweet corn tamale as well.

This is the nearest Vietnamese restaurant to the house. Being an Asian food snob, I don't think it's the best, but it is owned by Vietnamese and it's convenient. I've had the pho and the vermicelli bowl with chicken.

I love eating here. Must-tries are the fried chicken and fries, but must have them right when they come out so food doesn't get soggy. Everything else on the menu is OK. They also do happy hours and play sports games on TVs at the bar. There's also outdoor seating.

Food, Activities, Entertainment, Sightseeing

I love this place because it's by the water and it's huge and newly built. There are restaurants, a trail to bike and run on, hotels and a convention center that has a beautiful indoors area (the ceiling and windows are all glass, koi pond,etc.), a grassy area with a fountain to relax near, a mini outdoor amphitheater-type space, a huge field area for events, and you can even rent boats.

I love this area as it's by water. There are a ton of restaurants, a path to run and bike, the Nationals baseball stadium, bars, rooftop/outdoor bar-type scene, grassy areas to picnic and hang out on, a winery, and just a great vibe all around.
