The third and first non-DC location of the popular Busboys & Poets venue is nested in the Shirlington town center.
The restaurant portion features some great dishes. They have interesting twists on classic sandwiches and the french fry wedges are extremely delicious.
There is also a bookstore portion to the restaurant if you feel like feeding your mind as well. Open mic poetry readings every Monday night at 8pm keep the spirit of the Langston Hughes-inspired venue alive.
