    Me too. Best I've had is at the Eden Center in Seven Corners. But the ones at the food downtown are pretty damn good as well.

    Song Que was definitely the best. But now if I'm out there I'll hit up Banh Mi DC Sandwich in Falls Church. Super tasty.

    Yes they do! I also used to go to Ba Le in Langley Park, but they closed. You're in Rockville? Do you hit up tennis topia at all? Scott does my stringing.

    tennistopia is a cool place. i always go there to look at new gear. Darrell the owner is a nice guy. The employees there are mostly HS or college kids, so u get the feel of that there. He's the same owner as Drilling's in DC (in the 80s and 90s) btw, saw a 25 off 50 on groupon there if u shop there. I usually hit up R and J down the road for shoes but get most of my gear here. i wear size 15 wide and picky on fitting so getting shoes online is hard except NBs, for some reason they always fit nicely.

    i remember there's also Ba Le's in Rockville before it was sold. they got some great sandwiches and noodles there. i used to talk to the owner the all the time. their business model is set up a store and sell. it worked really well for them.
    welcome to twmac, our mantra is to talk about food more than tennis.

    just strung my racquet on my dropweight. last time i did it was almost a year ago, don't remember my fingers being so sore. wondering if i used zap's Bab Star 10,000 will make my fingers more comfy?

    Yeah it's a fun shop. I hang around sometimes and Scott tells me stories from the road, stringing at the U.S. Open and stuff. I rarely buy equipment there other than grips, tennis balls and the occasional pair of shorts or t-shirt. Mostly go for the stringing and the stories. Oh and to pick over the used racquets. They have two Austrian-made Prestige Tour 600s sitting in there that I always almost buy, but never pull the trigger.

    they got some good used sticks. i saw a prince experimental (James Blake) i almost brought as well there. I had no business buying that stick, felt like swinging a weighted 2x4.
