After spending the day sightseeing in D.C., my wife and I decided to give Not Your Average Joe’s a try for dinner; it’s located in the Stonebridge Potomac Town Center off I-95 and Dale Blvd. It was an early weekday evening, so the restaurant wasn’t very crowded and we were seated immediately.
We split a wedge salad to start. It was topped with bacon, bleu cheese, cherry tomatoes, onion and a buttermilk-horseradish dressing; the horseradish wasn’t overwhelming and imparted a nice tangy taste. Shaved celery strips made for a nice presentation.
For our entrees, my had the grilled pork chop; it came with creamy risotto, sautéed mushrooms and arugula. I had the jambalaya with andouille sausage, diced ham, pulled chicken, chourico, shrimp and rice in a Cajun-spiced tomato broth. We both enjoyed our meals. My wife’s pork chop was moist and tender; I don’t claim to be a jambalaya expert, but mine was flavorful and plentiful. Service was attentive and the prices were reasonable.
If you’re in Woodbridge and looking for a nice dinner, Not Your Average Joe’s is certainly worth a try.
