Ever on the lookout for great Tex-Mex in Virginia, we were elated to stumble upon Smokin' Willies in Purcellville, Virginia.
Sometimes someone shares a ribeye with me. Delicious! The salads are great! On this day my son and I shared some appetizers: grilled shrimp and chips, salsa and queso. The flavors never disappoint.
The atmosphere is also great, with lots of photos of historic Texas, like the Come and Take it Flag. But most fun for us is to be seated underneath this picture of Gruene Dance Hall. We used to visit Gruene all the time!
By the way, in Texas we pronounce "gruene" not in the German manner but in the traditional anglicized turn of the century manner of the historic town..."green."
The service is always friendly too! This is our favorite restaurant in Virginia!
