A great experience. We ask for outdoor seating after making reservations. It was not available. Which was fine. We order an appetizer off the happy hour menu but when billed arrived we were told it was not available where we were sitting. It was not printed in menu.

The best things here are the service, the wine, and the decent seating. The food could use a little upgrade, but the wine makes up for it.

It was so nice to sit down, eat good food and watch an NFL game. Because we moved out of town we don’t get to Open Road and Trio as much as we used to. I love the Peruvian chicken with great fries and salad. My husband had the open road burger and loved it. There was so much more I wanted to order and taste! I will just have to keep coming back every time I visit friends in NOVA.

I realize it was a Sunday so the noise level was higher than normal due to all the disgusting NFL games on. We have noticed that since the pandemic restaurants have really raise their prices. All we had was one soda, the chicken bite appetizer and a French dip sandwich and it was $34 for lunch! With tip $41. My husband and I are not cheap and we make good money but eating out has now just gotten a little overpriced for my taste

Open Road is a great place for lunch. The restaurant is spacious, and includes a large patio area, so there is plenty of space to practice social distancing. The menu is ample as well, with an impressive list of beers. The service is good as well. All in all a pleasant place for lunch, or dinner, for that matter.

As much as I love the food and the friendly staff, unfortunately we were sat by a large party (about 15 people) that was not following the restaurants mask policy and were walking around without a mask on when they left the table. When we let management know they told us they hadn’t seen this behavior and argued with us rather than reprimand the group.

The server/bartender wasn’t really attentive. It was hard to get his attention and he didn’t really come by to the table during the time my friend and I was there. I think overall he came by twice without us having to get his attention. He didn’t give us utensils even after we ordered. The food was good but the service didn’t match the food quality.

The food was quite good, but there was an approximately 20-minute span from when the server brought our drinks and then happened to pass by our table again. During that time, we stared at our sodas which had no carbonation in them hoping we could flag her down to change them out for us. After we successfully got her attention and fixed the drink issue, it was another 10-15 minutes before we saw anyone again and finally got our food.

Again, We all enjoyed our food, but I’m just not a fan of waiting 30+ minutes to get it when the restaurant wasn’t even half full.

Good social distance in the outdoor dining, however there would be intermediate times of a heat breeze (thought it was from their overhead heat lamps). It was not. Hot and sticky the day we ate there. The fans were on but not all working. Food is very good in taste and good size portions.
