What You'll Get
Gastropubs serve fancier dinners than regular pubs, replacing greasy fry-ups with posh steak frites and salty Irish bartenders with salty Irish bartenders dressed like Louis XIV. Grab some upscale grub with today's Groupon to Mad Fox Brewing Company in Falls Church. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of dinner fare.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of lunch fare from 11 a.m.–4 p.m.
Hailed by The Washington Post and The Washingtonian, Mad Fox Brewing Company marries carefully brewed libations with toothsome cuisine served amid rich wooden décor and along a 63-foot-long bar. Mad Fox's succulent menu twists traditional pub fare into nuanced and hearty noshes. Patrons perched atop cushy leather barstools can tuck into entrees lovingly crafted with fresh ingredients that are often locally sourced. Inhale a breath of Louisiana with Shrimp & Grits, which blends smoked gouda and Cajun-spiced tomato fondue ($18) or savor the aquatic aromas wafting from the blackened tuna ($22), which ducks under cover of lemon-butter sauce so it may use potato straws to shoot spitballs at its rival entrees. Arriving in 11-inch and 16-inch, and gluten-free disk form, pizzas support toppings that include apple-wood-smoked bacon and black mission figs ($12+), and sandwiches nestle burgers ($10+) and herbivorous bundles ($8) in their bready embrace.
Esophagi become bubbly water slides with Mad Fox's nod to non-alcoholic libation craftery: house-brewed root beer brewed with local honey and spouting liberally from a free-refill tap ($3.50). Although this Groupon is not valid for alcohol, tipplers can separately purchase a house-brewed selection from one of Mad Fox's 15 gleaming kegs on tap at all times, from snifters of robust Wee Heavy Scotch ale to glasses of refreshing golden Fennec Ale.
