The rapid-fire openings at Ballston Quarter’s Quarter Market food hall are continuing this week.
After a “soft opening” Friday, Sloppy Mama’s BBQ was open for lunch today, serving wood-smoked meats in sandwiches and platters, alongside homemade sides and barbecue sauces.
Though it was only open for lunch today, and its hours are not yet set, Sloppy Mama’s expects to eventually be open for lunch and dinner.
Also open for a Friday “soft opening” was Ballston Service Station, which will serve as the food hall’s main bar.
Featuring 20 taps of beer — from local brews to cheap classics and popular imports — plus six wines and two cider on tap, the bar strives to provide “something for everybody.” Customers can drink at the bar or take it with them elsewhere in the food hall.
“We want to to be able to get whatever you want, so you can walk around and pair it with something to eat here,” said Andrew Dana, the co-owner of Ballston Service Station and also the co-owner of another Quarter Market vendor, Turu’s by Timber Pizza.
As it must to comply with Virginia ABC regulations, the bar will also serve food: paninis and chips.
Dana said Ballston Service Station will re-open Tuesday. Its regular hours will be 4 p.m. to close.
