A new restaurant with a familiar name has opened its doors on Fontaine Ave. Guadalajara, famous among students for its affordable food and endless supply of chips and salsa, debuted its new branch about two weeks ago. But now that there are three Guadalajaras to choose from, one on Route 29 and one on the Downtown Mall, students may have to ask the question--which one do I want to eat at? Well, as it turns out, it depends on what you're looking for. The new Guadalajara offers quite a different atmosphere than the other branches.
The first thing you're warned about is the weather--vast amounts of rain, an average 60 degrees in summer, and, of course, fog--London Fog. Studying abroad in London for a month was a way for me get out of Virginia, but the class I was taking--the Culture of London--also ensured that I would get a first class non-stop tour through the highways and byways of one of the most culturally distinguished cities in Europe. Of course, the first lesson I learned is that it's foggy only when your plane is about to land.
Take It Away proves that you can take more than sandwiches away from lunch: you can take a good overall lunch experience as well. The restaurant, which opened its doors seven years ago, offers classy sandwiches, homemade salads and a wide array of desserts.
