Marco's Pizza Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I like Marco’s. When this location opened last Fall, I was happy as it is only about a mile from my office. I had lunch here back on 10 May. Except for one small glitch, it was a great experience.

I ordered at the counter. I asked for a small pepperoni pizza and some chicken wings. The pizza was just as ordered, but I got chicken dippers instead of wings. As I was afraid the dippers would be tossed, I took them anyway. The pizza was great! The dippers were so-so. I thought they were tough and had little flavor. I will certainly get the wings next time, I know they are good.

My drink was a 2L DP to go. My check was $23.29 (yes, a little expensive, but it’s essentially two entrees). Great pizza.

Foster’s Grille, Herndon, VA

Foster's Grille on Urbanspoon

This place was really good! I picked it for a couple reasons: it was near my hotel and IAD (which I was flying into), and it was inexpensive. I got there around 1715 and left about 1800. My check was $19.22.

You order by marking a strip of paper ala Which Wich. I got a cheeseburger with mayo, lettuce, and (a pleasant surprise) pickle relish. I upgraded from fries to onion rings. I also got an order of BBQ wings. The burger (advertised as a charburger) was EXCELLENT! A half pound of beef, thick, excellent flavor, a nice crust. That was fine beef. The mayo and lettuce was right on, and the pickle relish was a fine touch of flavor enhancement. The onion rings were OK at best, I think they were pre-fabbed. I’m getting fries next time.

The ten BBQ chicken wings – I had every intention of carrying them back to my room to have as a snack, but I ate them all at the restaurant. Wonderful, tender and plump. The BBQ coating was excellent.

I got iced tea, brewed and yummy. The staff was very friendly. This place is on my list for a visit to the DC area. Great stuff. And I need to try to fries.

Wing Stop, Oklahoma City, OK

Wing Stop on Urbanspoon

Every once in a while, we like a meal of just chicken wings. Raegan is fond of buffalo sauce, I like BBQ. A couple weekends ago, we were in north OKC, and saw the Wing Stop and decided to check it out.

We each got different things. I got BBQ, Raegan got a split order of garlic parmesan and buffalo, Erin got some plain, and Ian got some gliders (small slider-style burgers). These came with fries. The fries were very good!

That being said, the wings were OK. Just OK. I really didn’t like the garlic wings that Raegan got, but that’s just a preference on my part. The wings were all decent sized and had an OK amount of meat on them. But they were, in the end, just wings. The iced tea was pretty good.

We got there around 1215 and left at 1315. The wings are cooked on demand and take about 20-25 minutes. The place was moderately crowded the time we were there.

Our check for four was $39.70. I think that is pretty darn expensive for chicken wings. I’ve stopped at places many times and got 10 chicken wings (an appetizer) and a drink, and got out for $6, so I think that Wing Stop is a bit high priced for typical quality. I probably would not go back.
