Whitlow's on Wilson Restaurant Review

WOW. An acronym, for sure, but also a description of one of Arlington’s longtime, comfort-food destinations, a bit of home away from home. WOW stands for Whitlow’s on Wilson, and this ultra-casual restaurant has catered to both low- and high-brow clientele who grab a booth, table, or bar seat and settle down to American cooking: meatloaf, barbecue chicken, crab cakes and grilled salmon keeping...

Basic, but good

Opted for outdoor seating on a mild April night that accommodated our two, leashed puppies. Went with a crab dip appetizer that was really good, and generous portion. For the main course, I had the fish and chips. Two huge chunks of a lightly battered and light tasting fish, along with fries that were nicely done. A huge portion. Nothing...

'50s kitchen tables, bits and pieces of decor from Washington landmark stores or eateries. Interesting in a kitchy way. Food is simple, honest and served by a very positive and helpful wait staff. Not a fancy place, but an honest place. GREAT burgers.

When to Go: If you hit the bar a little too hard on Friday or Saturday night, return the next day for the $15.95 brunch buffet—it runs on Saturdays and Sundays until 3pm.

The Extras: The late night menu (from 11pm to 1am) features the kind of greasy, alcohol-absorbing classics such as nachos, pulled pork sandwiches and even meatloaf.
