Eating Our Way Through Chantilly Crossing (Not for Food Snobs)

Bob W. | Oct 4, 2004 02:43 PM

Chantilly Crossing is the big new plaza where Costco and Target are just west of Route 28.

There are several eateries already, with more coming. It's heaven for families. Quick impressions so far:

Chipotle: Very good burrito. Big enough to cut in half for two meals.

CiCi's Pizza: About what you'd expect for $3.99 AYCE. Ample quantity, marginal quality. Saturday night the place was absolutely mobbed. One answer to how they make a profit is the drinks, which are $1.49.

The spinach alfredo pizza was pretty good and so were the cinnamon rolls. The barbecue pizza was just horrible. Next time I would take a pile of banana peppers from the salad area and put those on some plain cheese slices.

Pitalicious. Got take-out for Mrs. W: Kafta kebab platter. Overpriced. The food was tasty, just not enough of it. Also, why do so many places fail to give sauce with takeout, unless you know to ask? Mrs. W. got three ground beef chunks, plain rice, and plain pita bread (plus a salad). A small cup of tzadziki sauce would have gone a long way.

Costco snack bar: Actually pretty good. The chicken caesar bake (sort of a stromboli-type thing) is tasty (albeit salty) and substantial for $2.79. The very berry parfait is a good dessert for $1.55. Hebrew National frank plus a soda for $1.50 is a good deal.

Still to try: Red Robin and the forthcoming Five Guys. There's also a mystery standalone restaurant being constructed.
