Neighborhood Spotlight: 3 Great Options for Takeout Food

This content was written and sponsored by The Keri Shull Team, Arlington’s top producing residential real estate team.

Since the stay-at-home order took effect in Virginia at the end of last month, a lot of people living in Arlington and other parts of NoVA have been looking for ways to feel normal again.

One of the best ways that we’ve found is to order food from some of the local favorites around the city. This gives you a chance to support local businesses during these trying times, get a taste of some of your favorite fare from Arlington’s best — and enjoy a nice meal without having to worry about groceries and cooking.

Today, we are going to highlight 3 Arlington favorites that you can get as take-out, so you can enjoy our local flavors from the comfort and convenience of your home.

First is Don Tito, one of our favorite places to get tacos and margaritas in Arlington. Usually, this popular taqueria offers some of the most fun you can have while grabbing a bite, with weekly events like Taco Tuesday and watch parties for sporting events. Of course, patrons won’t be able to attend these events — or dine in at the eatery — until social distancing orders are lifted… but you can still enjoy some of the best tacos and drinks in town!

Although you won’t be able to eat your food on the beautiful rooftop terrace, you can still enjoy some of Arlington’s most scrumptious cantina bites from the comfort of your own home. Best of all? Don Tito’s has created to-go versions of their locally famous margaritas, so you can bring the party right to your doorstep. You can order online for delivery or pick-up at

Next, we have True Food Kitchen, located in the Ballston Quarter. Like many other stores and restaurants in the Quarter, True Food is doing everything possible to respect social distancing and other safety measures, while still providing nutritious and tasty meals to their patrons.

The Arlington location of True Food Kitchen is remaining open for take out and delivery services — including a special no-contact pick-up option to help protect staff and guests as best as possible. In addition to True Food’s delicious, health-conscious meals, you can order canned beer or bottles of wine with your pick-up or delivery order, so you can round out the True Food Kitchen experience with a refreshing drink. You can click here to place an order for delivery or no-contact pickup!

Finally, we want to talk about Tupelo Honey, home to some of Arlington’s most popular southern comfort food and one of the hottest brunches in the area. Although the dining room is closed to patrons, you can still get a taste of Dixie from the comfort of your own couch with Tupelo Honey’s delivery and pick-up options.

Like Don Tito and True Food Kitchen, Tupelo Honey is open for delivery and pick-up orders — and this includes their brunch options, as well as their lunch and dinner fare! Recreate your favorite weekend tradition with flaky biscuits, griddled potato pancakes and southern-style shrimp & grits!

On top of this, Tupelo Honey is also gearing up to offer BOGO take & bake meals, so you can pick up a meal for dinner and take a second one home to store — so you can heat it up and have southern comfort whenever you want!

Unfortunately, our needs can’t always take a backseat during times like these — that’s why essential businesses are staying open to help people who need it right now. This is true for restaurants like the ones listed above; and it’s also true for real estate teams like the Keri Shull Team. We know that many people can’t wait weeks or months to buy or sell a home, and we are dedicated to protecting those people’s physical and financial health.

So if you have any real estate needs that you have to take care of during these times, please contact the Keri Shull Team or schedule a time for a virtual meeting today.

The Arlington-Aachen High School exchange is returning this summer and currently accepting applicants.

The sister-city partnership started in 1993 by the Arlington Sister Cities Association, which seeks to promote Arlington’s international profile through a variety of exchanges in education, commerce, culture and the arts. The exchange, scheduled June 17th to July 4th, includes a two-week homestay in Aachen plus three days in Berlin. Knowledge of the German language is not required for the trip.

Former participants have this to say:

_”The Aachen exchange was an eye-opening experience where I was fully immersed in the life of a German student. I loved biking through the countryside to Belgium, having gelato and picnics in the town square, and hanging out with my German host student’s friends. My first time out of the country, the Aachen exchange taught me to keep an open mind, because you never know what could be a life changing experience.” – Kelly M._
