Up next: Kilroy's Restaurant (Springfield, VA)
For over two decades, Kilroy’s has become a neighborhood favorite with its juicy Prime Ribs being the prime reason for its fan following. Kilroy's features hearty American food like Buffalo Wings loaded in house-made sauce and their Philly Cheese Steak sandwich.
We have been in business at the same location for 41 years. We have supported the local communities, schools, firefighters, local police and other charities. We have a wonderful clientele and group of regulars, some of who have been coming here since 1981 when we opened our doors. It has been considered a local institution since the 1980's. Kilroy's has given many people their first job and taught them the business. Some have moved on to own their own businesses and others have started careers in other industries. We have several employees the have been with us 10 plus years and some over 30 years.
Since the pandemic our business is off by 70%. The restrictions placed on restaurants and bars in Virginia are making an already bad situation, worse. We find that a lot of people are afraid to eat indoors. Our dining rooms which used to be full, are now just about empty, with tables that we are not allowed to seat due to social distancing. Same with the bar, it's occupancy has been reduced by 50%. At this time in Virginia, alcohol cannot be sold or consumed after 10:00 pm. Pre-Pandemic we were opened until 2:00 am. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
