(unionjacksballston.com) – Ballston neighborhood, Arlington, Virginia

How I heard of this place: We moved in next door to Ballston Common Mall and there was Union Jacks, not hard to miss.

Type of cuisine: Pub and Bar fare. Sliders to Reuben’s, soups, salads, pizzas, burgers, and entrees like fish & chips, skillet cottage pie, bangers & mash, ribs, chicken curry and pasta.

Ambiance: (Never having been inside Union Jacks at the Ballston Common Mall (nor anywhere, for that matter), I’m unable to speak to the restaurant ambiance at this time. Although, the website may give a pretty good idea of the loud red and yellow entrance to the brick-walled space full of dark wooden chairs set against burgundy-colored tables with tablecloths.)

What I ordered: Union Jacks was offering our apartment complex a happy hour of our own. In the lobby, they served us colorful tortilla chips (the red ones are not spicy) with spinach & artichoke dip, 1/4 of a banger (sausage) in a bun and a bite-sized square of bread pudding with a caramel-rum sauce.

What I loved: The gooey-ness and what I know to be cheesy-ness of the spinach & artichoke dip.

Why I loved it: Conveniently located…in our apartment lobby!

Cost: Average ($4-$10 for Pub Snacks)
