On November 18, 2011, I had lunch on the Old Town Mall in Winchester at a new place called 147 North, located at 147 North Loudoun Street.
I found that it's in a long, narrow room with tables along the two walls, some high rise, along with a bar in the back along the left wall. There were several patrons seated at the bar, but I elected to take a table.
The barkeep was also my server. I told him that I had been looking for Tippy's Taco House at that location, and he told me that Tippy's lasted only a month and half before closing. He said that 147 North had retained the Tacos and Burrito Wraps from Tippy's menu.
I looked over the menu, which listed Appetizers, Soup & Salads, Vegetarian, Sandwiches, Entrees, and Desserts. It seemed somewhat limited; for example, under sandwiches, a marinated chicken sandwich and a hamburger were the only listings. Under entrees, several kinds of Fajitas and Kabobs were the choices.
I chose the chicken sandwich, which was served on a hamburger roll with lettuce and tomatoes, chips, and a Dr. Pepper. It was good. I didn't have time to finish the chips and drink, and took them with me.
I was the only patron by the time I left before noon. I'll try the place again if they last longer than Tippy's did. It's closed on Sunday.— Perry Crabill
