Hi Y'all! So I work in Fairfax and I can't cook so usually eat somewhere for lunch. I'm walking distance to Fair Oaks so I usually stroll over there but I've done them to death. Anyone have any other recommendations for a cheap lunch?

The places in Fairfax I've done so far:

Whole Foods: A definite fav. I like to get my lamb curry in a hurry and I love the catfish.

Wegman's: Everyone raves about this place but the food itself wasn't that great if you ask me.

Kabob place next to Starbucks on 29 whose name escapes me: It was okay nothing to write home about.

Random fast food chains that I won't bother naming except my beloved Five Guys.

Tsunami Sushi a couple doors down from Target: They have all you can eat sushi for $13 for lunch. Not the best sushi in the world but not bad for $13 !

So what else have I been missing?

I like the Chutzpah deli. Also Moby Dick is not a bad price for the amount of food you get.

California Tortilla - yum yum!

I agree that the Wegman's self serve bar is just okay - nothing to write home about.
