Buenos Grill, the long-awaited eatery on Columbia Pike and Evergreen Lane is up and running – if a little late. The superstorm Sandy that knocked out the power in most of central Annandale delayed the grand opening from Oct. 29 to Oct. 31.
The restaurant offers burritos ($6.95 for the foot long), tacos ($2.50 for one), and salads ($6.85) with your choice of grilled steak, carnitas (slow-cooked, shredded pork), grilled chicken, barbacoa (slow-cooked beef), and “vegetarian” (mango guacamole and pinto beans with pork).

There’s imported and domestic beer, and the manager Simon Yi says he hopes to be able to offer mixed drinks soon.
The menu is still evolving, but for now a selection of tapas is available after 5 p.m., including duck confit with avocado on tortilla ($7), grilled prawns ($8), endives with pear, cheese, and pecan ($8), seared scallops ($10), and crab fritters ($8).
Buenos Grill, 7023 Columbia Pike, is open every day, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
