When we lived in that region, the best place around for pizza was Emilio's just off of Rt 28. He is NOT a chain. My favorite was the Roma pizza. His stuff is ten times better than anything frozen and miles better than home delivery pizza. If you see a Belfort Furniture store as you drive along VA Rte 28, that is where Emilio's is located. This is near Redskin Park, sometimes those guys come in for pizza.

I'm not involved with this business in any way, it simply is the best pizza I ever had and I hope you try it. Emilio's is on my list of places to visit when we go back to VA for a graduation in June, it's that good.

Two places that are wonderful for pizza as well:

Next to Golden China (best chinese joint around, and the staff is wonderful as well), in Chantilly, unfortunatly since moving out of there it has been about a year or more since I have been there, but great pizza, and they are really nice. This is also the same family that owns the pizza place in Fair Lakes area. There is a small pizza place (near Best Buy).

Thumbs up Going back to visit

Ms. Leo, thanks for the info.

On our upcoming trip back to Northern Virginia (where we also left a year ago) we are sure to hit Emelio's and will stop by Chantilly too, where we lived for 28 years.

You mentioned Golden China, in the strip mall where a K-Mart is. That place has the best Chinese food of any storefront Chinese restaurant I've ever been to. To my tastebuds, 99% of Chinese food tastes the same from place to place, but Golden China is head and shoulders about the rest. Their fried rice is superb, and at $6.95 (may be up a bit since June 2005) is one of the best buys going. They also deliver. They give you a lot too, we'd take delivery on two entrees and it would last my wife and I for two nights.

I don't miss N. VA a bit now that we're here in Colorado Springs, but it will be nice to see her family and get some crabcakes in Baltimore when we see my family.
