The SouvlakiBar, a new fast casual Greek restaurant, has opened its first Loudoun County location. After months of construction, they opened quietly on Wednesday at their new location in the Shoppes at King’s Corner in Leesburg. The small strip center is at the intersection of South King Street and Catoctin Circle SW. It’s the first of two planned locations in Loudoun.
The Burn first told you about the imminent arrival of SouvlakiBar last September. The restaurant’s menu specializes in traditional Greek dishes such as spanakopita, roasted chicken, stuffed grape leaves, pita wraps, rice bowls and, of course, gyros (which they inexplicably spell as “yeeros” making my head want to explode). It’s done in a fast casual style, meaning you order at a counter and then go sit down while your food is quickly prepared.
A second SouvlakiBar location is in the works for Loudoun County in Sterling. It’s under construction at the new Shoppes at Potomac Corner development along Route 7 at Potomac View Road. Look for that store to open sometime later this year. The original SouvlakiBar location is in Alexandria.
