REVIEWS OF Red Apron IN Virginia

Peter Buckingham

I have to say that I was really disappointed in the Italian Sub. While the meat and flavors were ok, the sandwich as a whole was pretty dry and I felt like I was eating pre-cut, packaged cheese that you could buy at the grocery store. I've been to Red Apron twice, and the first time I had a good experience. This time I didn't even finish the sandwich. You should still go, but I'd definitely recommend trying something else on the menu.

Best roast beef Sammy I’ve ever had. And I got a hand full of free pastrami too. Can’t complain about that!

I am absolutely obsessed with the burger and fries here. I could sing praises to their fries. Get the fries. The restaurant can be a bit crowded at times, made worse by the general crowded atmosphere of Union Market, but food still manages to come out in a decent manner.

J'y ai mangé 2 fois. J'ai apprécié le sandwich et la qualité du service. Prix correct même si la boisson est excessive.

Armin Behroozi

Nowhere near the quality of the red apron in Fairfax, but definitely the same prices.

Nicholas Fechter

Unremarkable sandwiches that are way over priced.


I found there burger to be a bit overpriced and way over cooked and dry. I asked for medium and I got a well done hockey puck. I like the all in one atmosphere but I will not be getting a burger or meat of any sort from them again.

David Stoker

Great sandwiches made of their own meats and cheeses. A large menu of unusual but tasty draft brews.

RED APRON ROCKS, however, this location is a complete waste of time and money. Food sucks, service is worse. I love Union Market and have given it multiple chances, I dont know why I keep going back. It is important to note though that I complained online via email, and the customer service I received back, was amazing. Great General Manager!

Dylan Boom

Delicious food, warm & friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere! This is the perfect spot to stop by with a date & have some gourmet sandwiches and drinks. Beer selection is moderate but satisfyingly eclectic. Great place!

Türd Ferguson

Steak salad is killer! Lots of flavor and subtle spice. Beer was a bit expensive - $15 for a sour.

paul duffy

Insanely overpriced. While the beer selection is impressive and the food is good, the prices (for drink especially) are insulting. I paid $ 11 for a "full pour" of an Anchorage Brewery offering: An eight, maybe 10 oz. glass and the head of the pour stopped about a finger from the rim. I can get a better deal at Nationals Park.

Awesome Italian Sandwich!

Carlos Pinto

I had the Roasted Turkey sandwich. Things I loved about it: - Avocado - Bacon - Bread The turkey was ok, too cold for me. They didn’t have any sauces :/

Christopher Westcott

The first thing that stands out to you is the knowledge of the staff. I dare you to ask about any of the craft beer on their menu and not be prepared to be stunned by the rich, full length stories that can be provided about each of the hand selected brews on their menu. The second thing that will slap you in the face is how perfect the meat ball sandwich is. If you don't come here and try this, you are missing out on the experience of a life time. Your first bites will blow your mind. I definitely recommend stopping here for a beer and a meatball sandwich. You are crazy not to.

Sam Soloman

I've only tried one item. Twice. It was that good. Porkstrami. All. The. Way.

Bradley Cain

Good but pricey!

Duan Jones

Mishea Hyatt

Great burgers & beers.

Millie Kwan

The sandwiches at Red Apron are really tasty, but it seems a bit pricey although you could probably say that for most of Union Market. The Porkstrami sandwich though was really tasty, moist and full of flavor and the French fried are really a great as they are cooked with fresh herbs. Also seem to have a butcher's counter as well and they are best busy. The flow to the inside counter to order is a little non-intuitive as you pass the menu to order, but very tasty food. Not enough seating though for this busy stall.

Austin Graff

Red Apron Butchery's flagship location in downtown DC is great and this is their stand in Union Market. There's something about their flagship that deserves a high rating, but their stand is not as good. Here are the pros and cons: -Pros: - Alcohol list: They have beers on tap, in a can, cocktails, and even a cider. They allow you to carry your drink throughout the entire market. - Seating: They have a bar and two long tables to enjoy your food. -Con: -Food: It was just meh. We ordered the fries and they came out cold and not the best fries in DC. If you're in Union Market and want a drink to walk around with, go here!

I stopped in union to grab a quick bite to eat and I decided to try the chorizo burger. To my surprise it was really good. The staff at red apron was cool and my food was made quickly. One of the best things about eating in this area is there is so much going on and I love the outdoor seating.

Porkstrami Sandwich *twist on the traditional pastrami sandwich, shaved super thin and almost melts in your mouth, absolutely loved the sauerkraut reminded me of the sauerkraut I had in Berlin, not sour but rather savory and porky. *since I got my order to go, I might ask for the bread to be on the side next time because the mustard aioli made the bread super soggy Beef Fat Fries *Super crunchy with the skin on, great with the rosemary and garlic, added a nice flavor to the fries Spent $15 for lunch and I was super full and satisfied, definitely will be back. Interested in trying the beef and cheddar but reviews have been very mixed so I'm not sure.

Benjamin Kirkup

Though they often run out of this or that sandwich, the actual sandwiches never disappoint. The pates and sausages look great, but the prices inhibit browsing.

Nellie Romero Izarza

After the 7 dollar

Kevin Redd

Great environment and love the staff

I live near Union Market and have always been meaning to try this place. It's always packed and for good reason. I had the meatball sub and really highly recommend it. The salsa verde on top of the sauce is a good touch. It comes with two meatballs and it would be perfect if there was just one more. Still pretty reasonably priced for what you get.

Marc Heim

I ordered a chorizo burger and I was very disappointed. I did not ask but I expected a burger with chorizo and instead I got a "chorizo" patty. It was also supposed to be topped with avacado, pickled onions and sour cream, you had to search to find them. I would not recommend it.

Hugo Z

Good beer,Great burger and very friendly staff.

Michael Neal

Where the meat? Ordered a chorizo burger that was smaller than the "gas station" bun, and tasted awful. Couldn't finish it. $11.

Christen McCluney

Butcher and charcuterie in Union Market that also serves up some pretty tasty sandwiches as well. The pastrami from the deli area is great and the porkstrami sandwich is pretty good.

Martinez Cosme

J Schultz

Legit sandwiches and to go charcuterie. One of the better burgers in town and amazing fries. Nice but small collection of beers.
