Chili's in Fairfax Closing on 12/24

I got an e-mail last night that Chili's in Fairfax is shutting its doors on 12/24 after 25 years at the current location.

That stinks. I think I've been going there for 25 of those 25 years. SInce 1989, I think...

We liked going to that location because it was never crowded, but I suppose that's why it's closing... Nobody was ever there...


The one in Springfield closed years ago, moving to Manchester Lakes, which isn't terrible, just their parking lot.

Hopefully the Fairfax one re-opens in another spot, but if it moves towards Fair Lakes, which may be a possibility, the parking lot won't be nearly as good.

My friend used to waitress there. She said the county government workers were the worst customers. They would sit for hours and hardly tip. Always trying to say the food was no good and they wanted it for free.

I think all those microwave "restaurants" are in trouble. Heck, if you want to eat corporate slop heated up in a microwave, you can do that at home a lot cheaper.

I read that Darden Restaurants, Inc is trying to unload Red Lobster and will not be opening any new Olive Gardens.

This is because Darden is allowing itself to be dictated to by hedge fund asshats whose only interest is in their own estimates of long-term shareholder value and propsects for short-term profit. That said, Darden has done very little to keep Red Lobster market-relevant, and like wiping out an employee pension plan, spinning it off would create a significant cash inflow and short-term boost in stock prices that would allow the hedge funds involved to sell their holdings at a profit. Always remember -- jobs and people are not important. Only profits are. This is the age of financial economy capitalism, you know.

I remember Chili's having the best fajitas at one time. It's been at least a decade since I've had them and probably about 5 or 6 years since I've been in a Chili's. The Fairfax location used to be pretty active and I'm quite sure Chili's is a better corporate customer to have next to that strip mall as opposed to another branch of Teeno Zytoon opening up in that spot.

Sadly, I really doubt that anything that replaces it will be any better, but potentially much worse. Heck, if the old Ground Round at Fairfax Circle turned into a Sam's Tailoring shop for a couple of years before it was bulldozed down. Prior to Sam's taking over the lease, the building sat vacant for a good portion of a decade with a few tenants in between here and there.

Not sure if anyone has also noticed, but a new Radio Shack opened in the strip along with Dickie's BBQ. I personally haven't seen a RS store open in a decade, so this appearance seemed a bit odd to me.

A couple of times in ten years is not a valid sample. Where have you been a couple of time in the past month? What did you think of THAT place?

I don't care what the fuck you do. You're just some inconsequential lamebrain on the internet. But visiting a restaurant twice in ten fucking years is not a valid sample. You are just babbling in saying anything all -- good, bad, or indifferent -- about the place.

Obamascare is crushing the restaurant industry. It will put all small restaurants out of business. Darden is one chain that is downsizing specifically because of Obamascare and they are huge. Less jobs, less money, higher prices and less quality food offerings.

It's doing no such thing. You are a clueless whackjob.

Darden is looking to spin off moribund Red Lobster due to hedge fund pressure to boost stock prices and short-term profits. PPACA has nothing to do with it. Darden already has huge percentages of its workforce on part time. They experimented some 15 months ago with moving even more to P/T. It was a huge failure. Theft went up. Turnover went up. Training costs went up. Morale and ability to recruit into key positions went down.

There is an over-abundance here of fuckwad illiterates who also suffer from numeracy problems. As your own article points out, Darden and Papa John's have beaten a hasty retreat from their earlier sky-is-falling claims, and anyone with any sort of facility with pencil and paper can easily work the numbers to see that those still whining are on no less shaky ground. WMD's were a bigger threat than Obamacare, and yeah, you fell for the WMD crap too, didn't you Herr Incredibly Gullible Dumbfuck?

It's sad because the Fairfax that many of us have known for years is just about gone. Two and a half decades is a long time for an establishment. Two and a half decades is a third of a lifetime.

People that are bashing the place need to get some fucking perspective. It was CHILI'S! It wasn't a high end restaurant. It was bullshit, burgers and fries Americana type of comfort food. It's something that you don't find too often any more, for better or worse. Sure, it was "terrible" compared to many high-end restaurants around here (not including GA restaurants that people love so dearly), it as good for what it was.

I'm hoping the "well established" mexican place rumored to be going in isn't Guapo's. There's one in Fair Lakes and really, Guapo's and Uncle Julio's, it's MEXICAN FOOD. The shit should be cheap and questionable. I don't want to pay $15 for a plate of fancy ass mexican food. Give me a fucking burrito with some fish, rice, beans and hot peppers and leave it the hell alone.

Fuck what douchebags and elitists say. I for one will miss seeing Chili's there, just like we miss seeing Bennigans at the mall, just like we miss seeing Ruby Tuesdays (the old one, not their latest incarnation). It's a dying breed, again, for better or worse.

Understandable, as you probably live in the trailer park next door and, due to your drinking problem, have no license nor car to drive. Chili's is the only place close enough for you to stumble to?

When I was in college about 15 years ago, the Chili's near there wasn't bad at all. It was always packed, and not just with college students that will eat whatever, and the food was really good. I stopped eating there after I left college but somehow landed up with a gift certificate a few years ago and went to the one in Fairfax. I couldn't believe it was the same restaurant- same friendly service, but the food was definitely in a frozen block and then microwaved shortly before being served. Maybe it was all the beer, but I didn't remember Chili's ever being a terrible place to eat but something changed and it went to hell.

You Libtards are in denial, THE ACA is part of the restaurnat industry's downfall. You're going to see this at supermarkets too. Both types of businesses operate on a very thin profit margin. Gee, Wegman's is now deciding on whether to open location in Kingstowne? Wonder why? Actions have consequences.

A look inside Chili kitchen: From a Chili's "chef"

A lot of it is pre-packaged / prepped in some way. A comprehensive list would take forever... but here's some samples.
Meat arrives frozen but pretty much has to be thawed in advance, then cooked on the spot. The only prep that can be done here is fajita chicken or steak (also used for nachos, quesadillas, etc.) which can be partially cooked... set to the side... then finished at service.
Stuff like a side of veggies... almost always microwave steam bag.
Fried items, the SW eggrolls, cheese sticks, jalepeno poppers... they just come in giant frozen bags - we just toss them (frozen) into the frier and they are done in a few minutes.
The awesome blossom onion... that's actually totally fresh, day-of, and made pretty much on the spot. One of the few menu items I still enjoy because of that fact.
Feel free to follow-up about specific items if you like.

Passé? What a stupid shit! Good food and a nice ambience at reasonable prices never go out of fashion. But here's a free tip for you -- location, location, location.

It really isn't food, was food, but when you get it it is just oil, breadcrumps and salt.

So what about the Chuy's opening. They look like a cool new chain. Any really info about this space? Damnn, the center needs it. The only store with life when I drove by today was the kabob place and Batteries Plus.

So apparently, there are no updates on what, if anything, is replacing this Chili's? In regard to Chuy's, I only read the restaurant may be opening in Springfield..but haven't seen anything about it expanding to any other NoVa locations.

Chuy's isn't new. They started in Texas back in the 80's. Closest one to NOVA is in Richmond so it would be BAD ASS if they opened one in Springfield.

Chuy's website doesn't have anything on it about expanding up here, though. I'll keep everything crossed . . .

That sounds like great news... however, if you are privy to such information, then how come there isn't a shred of info available across the Internet to corroborate this potentially wonderful news? Considering that old Ruby Tuesday/Marlins and Ray's restaurant down in Fairfax Court has been shut down for much longer without occupancy, it's hard to be hopeful a new tenant will be showing up soon in the old Chili's (albeit a slightly more desirable location).

This. Chuy's will indeed be slinging margaritas in the old Chili's space in the next 8-12 months.

it's too white and there's no one white left !

----------------------
they have to close for either renovatoin, avoiding taxes, or to cut loose on liability of employees that have been with them too long

nothing in fairfax stays open long. some say a few rich people do that intently for many reasons

yea i went there a little it was a nice place if you had the r&r to do it with

Check Chuy's website under 'Coming Soon'. It's totally happening

Btw. FUCK CHILI'S. I work there now and it fucking reeks as an establishment.

To hell with Chili's. They will all fail.

If there is any restaurant that has to disappear off the face of the planet is has to be The Greene Turtle. Their food has got to be the worst restaurant level food ever. But yet they open location after location. Don't understand at all.

I agree I ate once at The Green Turtle in Fairfax to try it when it first opened. Probably paid $15 for mussels and was still hungry! Next time I went it wasn't any more memorable.
