Dining Around the World Series, Flavors Soul Food Thur 11/08 6:30PM

There are over a dozen ethnic restaurants in South Arlington along Columbia Pike.  RSVP ONLY IF COMING. Let's talk theater - what you have seen and what you want to see.

Our fourth dining experience will be at Flavors Soul Food.

Flavors Soul Food, 3420 Carlyn Hill Drive  Falls Church, VA 22041, (703)[masked]

Voted Washingtonian Magazine Best Bargain Restaurant

Reviews:  http://www.yelp.com/biz/flavors-soul-food-falls-church

"I'd definitely describe the restaurant as a hole in the wall type place, it's right off Columbia Pike and if you weren't looking for it, you'd miss it for sure! The interior is set up like a cafeteria and the décor is interesting. "The freshly-fried chicken was still piping hot, juicy and fried to the perfect crispness. The macaroni and cheese wasn't made from a box, it was homemade and cheesy with a little crusty top (I love that)."  "I have had the catfish, chicken and the ribs and loved all three, but the catfish was my favorite. The cakes and pies are also great. the food is made to order so be prepared to smell like food when you leave here."

Flavors can be easy to miss since it's tucked on a side street just off Columbia Pike.

    Yvonne, thanks for telling us about this family owned Soul Food restaurant, where you really get home cooked food, cooked after you order so it is fresh.
