Great food and fantastic location – In the summer and on weekends, there's such a commodity for seating and service that there's this constant frenzied feel with young bus boys trying to snatch your plates before you're finished and waiters prematurely laying on the check to get you up and out.
The fact that Cava is one of the only restaurants with good food on Barracks Row has kept me coming back to endure the cattle call a few times to get my fill.
It wasn't until tonight, on my third visit, that I was completely satisfied with the experience as a whole because the restaurant was desolate, letting us take in the food and good company for a while.
The three times we've been here, we've gravitated toward the Chicken Souvlaki, which has proven to be a tasty staple. Although they say to order two to three plates per person, we usually order three to split between two people and always end up contently full without being stuffed.
Despite walking away feeling good about Cava, it hurts me a little to promote this place because it's almost too trendy, too popular -- like the pretty girl who knows it's so -- I don't want to scream raves of Cava form the mountain tops because they do so themselves
