Fabulous small restaurant/store. Owner was very helpful explaining the food choices and describing the beer selections. You can also try several wines, but we were interested in the beer. So many flavors of olive oil and balsamic vinegar that can also be sampled. We bought a bottle balsamic vinegar infused with vanilla and fig. Delicious! There is good reason for all of the positive reviews. This is a gem. Don't miss it.
Definitely a place everyone should check out. Extremely unique. The owner is a great guy and is there to make your visit as best as possible. Got a ham and cheese sandwich and it was far better than almost any ham and cheese sandwich I've had. Didn't get to check out too much else as I was in a hurry to get back to the office but I plan on going back many more times in the near future. Great selection of wines and beers, check out the pics 👌
I just found out this really cute spot in Manassas (it is almost hidden from the outside), but when you open the door you will find little great surprises. I came for the gourmet sandwiches but then realized they have a variety of artesan olive oils and Balsamics vinegars. That was a great! You can have a meal, coffee, a glass of wine, with a good background music even if you are in a hurry. It is not crowded, so you can feel comfortable. And, the prices are incredibly better that a fast food meal, but you will get real food and great service. If you are near by...I truly recommend you stop at this cozy place.
If you really want an to enjoy yourself and learn and taste and be treated with kindness, go to this place! They hardly exist anymore with the world of fast food and food chains. You have a lovely lunch and getting to know the amazing and owner of this very authentic place. The vinegars are to die for not to mention the oils. The cucumber white balsamic is beyond just a vinegar in my opinion. It goes on everything! Salad and steamed and/or raw veggies. I have been ordering online from the owner during the pandemic and whenever I called on the phone he was so kind and you could tell he cared deeply about his business. Sorry, it's just so unusual in this day and age. Today we decided to take the 40 minute car ride and nearly spent the whole after noon there. What a delight!!! I don't leave reviews a lot. I just don't but this place and this man deserves it. Thank you so much!!
Elias has some great wines and cheeses. We're gradually making our way through his collection. I highly recommend Taste of Old Country for small group tasting events. You won't be disappointed.
This is one of those reviews that I'm going to hate myself later forgiving. Why do you ask? Because the more people who discover this place, the harder it is going to be to get a reservation. We died with Elias last night, thanks to a last-minute reservation that I am so grateful I grabbed. From the moment we walked in until the second we left, the experience was perfect! Great assortment of wine and beer, delicious appetizers and a mega Charcuterie board that will blow you away. The olive oil's, the vinegars, all of the special touches that made this meal absolutely delicious. I would kill for more of the tzatziki and the hummus is off the charts. I'm embarrassed to admit we also had a dessert board and are still raving about the walnut cake this morning. You'll love the intimacy of this place, the attentive service and, of course, the authentic dishes.
Wow. Found this via Yelp. We were looking for a tailgate for a concert at Jiffy Lube Live and the meat and cheese platter looked perfect. Of course we added spanakopita, grape leaves, a gyro panini and Greek salad. Everything was so fresh, authentic and delicious. The guitarist for one of the bands had been in just 2 hours prior to our visit! Highly recommend.
Absolutely amazing! The paninis are delicious. Have you ever had a panini that with every bit was crunchy and the ingredients inside taste so fresh and made with love. A+++ they got me hooked.
Taste of Old Country is my new favorite locale. I purchased the 4 bottles/EVOO and Balsamic Combo (Tuscan Herb and Greek Seasoning EVOO and Thick Dark and Champagne Balsamic). Today I made a homemade salad for my father and I told him that he would be amazed by the flavor of the EVOO and balsamic vinegar. I used the Thick Dark Balsamic and Greek Seasoning EVOO. There's no need for other ingredients in a salad dressing! As you can see in the photo, my dad loved it and couldn't stop raving about how delicious his salad tasted. Taste of Old Country has another very satisfied customer! Can't wait to to go back, enjoy the atmosphere and try more of their goodies.
Elias is a true professional who is passionate about his craft. This place is a delicacy, and an absolute must for a relaxed and tasty experience. It's a small spot, with a very European feel. Elias welcomed us at the door, and was very personable. Despite being the only working there at the time, the food was timely, delicious, and Elias provided outstanding hospitality--he checked on us regularly and ensured we were constantly comfortable. There's maybe 6 tables, so reservations are recommended. Highly highly recommended!
