Big news on the restaurant scene — Newk’s Eatery, a large national restaurant chain, has chosen Sterling as the spot for their first Virginia location. It’s slated to open in the new Shoppes at Potomac Corner center on Route 7.

Newk’s is a chain based out of Mississippi. They have roughly 125 restaurants open or in the works across the southeastern United States.

The Newk’s menu is filled with pizzas, sandwiches, soups, salads, mac and cheeses and more. You order at a counter and then your food is brought out to you. Similar in concept to a Panera, but not quite the same.

The Shoppes at Potomac Corner is currently home to Sterling’s SouvlakiBar. It’s at the corner of Route 7 and Potomac View Road.

The center is right next to the Cascades Overlook center, kitty corner from NOVA Community College and across Route 7 from the new Ollie’s Bargain Outlet that is getting ready to open soon.
