If you want to know where the locals go to eat in Warrenton, just ask the experts at the Fauquier Chamber of Commerce. Sylvia McDevitt, chamber director of membership, gave us the scoop.

“Okay, for starters, if one were to be traditional and go where the ‘locals’ go for breakfast it would be to Frost Diner on Broadview Avenue,” McDevitt said. This very ‘60s vintage diner with the “short order” cook in front of you at the counter was perfect.  They will serve up a good breakfast. Won’t be fancy, but it is filling. 

So many places to pick for lunch but we asked McDevitt for help again. This time we wanted a new place. She suggested we try Sandy’s Kitchen on Culpeper Street. Amazing grilled pimento cheese sandwich. Then, we found a few on our own. Dinner was a toss up between Harry’s at Airlie with their own beef and fresh garden vegetables or Café Torino, a little Italian bistro. Ice cream at Carousel, even with the long lines, is worth the wait at any time of the day.
