After enjoying lunch at Hot N Fluffy across the street, we popped in for dessert. So excited to see they were offering a special of a dozen cupcakes for $20 (normally $27). Lots of delicious flavors to choose from. Attached photo shows their rotating flavors schedule for various days of the week. They gladly split the dozen into two boxes so my friend and I each had six. The oreo, red velvet and chocolate chocolate were delectable!! Must return to try some of their other flavors...

Great staff! Conveniently located with plenty of parking. More choices than you can count and really refreshing when it's a hot & humid Virginia day or evening. Clean and simple place to go with friends or family of all ages. Did I mention the friendly and courteous staff?

Only needed 30 seconds to select the Brisket 1/2 lb. of pork with coleslaw & baked beans, with my name being called in the same length of time. Drink was a large lemonade. Pork was cut into six equal slices, needing only a fork to cut off a bite. Entire meal was very filling & tasty. Only are half with the second half being next night's dinner. Each table has a roll of tear off paper towels for napkins which are needed. Mission is located in a mall, lots of parking.
This meal & any meal & a stop is highly recommended.

The Zibibbo grape ,also known as Muscat of Alexandria .It is considered and "ancient vine "and some wine experts believe it is one of the oldest genetically unmodified vines still in existence.The vine made its way to Italy in 1773 from the Arabic nations where the name was Zibibbo. Italy had the perfect climate and rich soil for the vine.This made Italy a recognizable country in wine making.
We attended a dinner with about 25 people at Zibibbio. The wait staff kept us well stocked for drinks. They had a lovely antipasto tray, bread and salad before the meal. We were served lasagna for the meal and cannolis. Everyone raved about the cannolis.
They did a great job with this size group. Would love to go back on my own if I were ever in that area again.

Hi, we are Bella Café located in Stafford Virginia. We have been in the Stafford area for 13 years now and are known for our burgers, wraps, gyros, and our famous Brainfreeze shake! Bella is a great place to hang out, catch up with friends, hold a lunch meeting or have a private party. Every Friday night is Open Mic Night, our chance to feature great local musicians of all ages. Bella also hosts all kinds of different events, please check our facebook page for other upcoming events and specials!
We decided to try a local spot tonight, having just moved to the area within the year, and unexpectedly came to Bella on Karaoke Night. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and the food was really good. Though small, it was comfortable, and the custard was great! You could tell it was a favorite of the patrons and it only got busier the longer we stayed. We had a great time as a family.

Vinny's has long been one of my favorite local restaurants. On this occasion, I selected the lasagna. My lasagna was good, but I needed to add crushed pepper to give it the spicy kick I prefer. My husband was pleased by the size of the salad he received. He actually had salad to take home.
Our wait staff was prompt, courteous and accurate.
We will return soon.

Went here for my funny little huney's birthday. We had standard fare and a margarita or two. Have to give a shout out to the bartender for making a phenomenal peach margarita (frozen), good balance of tequilla and mixer, smooth frozen froth, no ice chips or shards to take a way from the drink texture. The food is awesome, some of the best guac and pico. BTW they will make fresh table side guac if you want to cough up some extra lettuce. We received our meals in a timely manner and it was fresh and hot. I ordered rolled tacos (like), and the lady had a beef and a chicken burrito, way mucho food-o. Large portions that is. ?The salad, the beans and the rice were great.
The decor is typical, but easily appealing to the eye. Lighting and atmosphere change with time of day, but is suitable for a romantic coupling, or a family showdown, however it will depend on the day and time you go. Check it out, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. The price is nice for what you experience! Great wait staff, that are happy you came by. Most are fairly young college kids...with manners. I know right, shocking! The manager/ owner greets you with a hello and and a thank you, can't beat that!

While this place is a little hard to find (our GPS had us circling the shopping center several times) it is worth the hunt. It is a short distance off I-95 not too far from Quantico. It is run by what appear to be Afghans but they were speaking to each other so fast it was impossible to even get the drift. I ordered the Shwarma Gyro wrap which was quite good and just the right size for me. There is limited seating both inside and out and they appear to have a following of regular customers. Prices were very good as was the food. I'll definitely stop again next time I'm in the area.

I've been here a couple of times and I always come away thinking it was OK, but disappointing. The sushi is fresh but the presentation seems somehow lacking. The service is good but not particularly warm or friendly. The ambience is alright but not especially notable. Overall, it's a perfectly adequate place for Japanese cuisine. But if I compare to some places in and around the District (for example), it doesn't hold a candle to those.
