While some visitors to Loudoun might safely assume that every restaurant was founded in the last 10 years, Leesburg Restaurant holds a little bit of the character of the old town.
There are diners designed for the purpose that fail to obtain the same comfortable friendly atmosphere. Know largely for the breakfast, a quick lunch trip also turns up a variety of Leesburg locals.
But for me, Leesburg Restaurant means peanut soup. It’s an unusual treat and one that fills you up.
Concentrating on comfort food and lunch counter specials, I sampled the country fried steak for this trip. And while not quite as good as mom used to make, it still vanished from my plate in short order.
Other past favorites have been the open faced turkey sandwich and the pot roast. But whatever you order, it will arrive tasting like something made just for you instead of a dish waiting to be re-heated. While you’re there, treat yourself to a handmade milkshake or freshly baked pie. Service remains friendly, fast and at a reasonable price given the quality.
