‘Why Is There No Shake Shack in Reston?’ and Other Burning Fast-Food Questions

Simple social media lip service or not, this does raise some questions.

Would a Shake Shack in Reston rock your world? And while we’re at it, what other fast-food or fast-casual restaurants would you like to see here?

Recently, fast-casual spots for which some have clamored (Cava, Kung Fu Tea, King Pollo, etc.) have opened here. Still others (including Nando’sHoneygrow and Sweet Leaf) are on the way. But some people still want more.

After we recently posted an article updating the status of a future Chick-fil-A at North Point Village Center, our Facebook commenters responded with a number of other quick-service restaurants they’d like to see in Reston. Some of the names they threw out don’t have any locations in our part of the country (In-N-Out, Jack in the Box, Del Taco), while others they mentioned (Sonic, Arby’s) are a little more likely.

Of course, if you’ve ever frequented the Reston Now comment threads, you know this guy who has a particular dream. Maybe someday he’ll get his wish.

For now, use this comment thread to let us know what you’d like to see here — and why.
